We had such a blast at our fall Wine and Wellness in September. 11 ladies designed an arrangement from local flowers and then learned about Essential Oils from Mary Bryant, of Melaleuca, The Wellness Company. Oils that were discussed were lavender, lemon and Peace which is a Tranquility Oil Blend that includes tangerine, orange, patchouli, tans, elemi and German chamomile blue.

Our flowers were almost all locally grown flowers from Barnswallow Farms.  They included sunflowers, celosia, roses, snapdragons, ageratum, globe amaranth and explosion grass.

Traci and Ana made our class a Mother-Daughter night out. Ana is such a talented designer and I love watching her creativity bloom. Her designs are very zen because she even uses her stems in her design. Plus she is so sweet, she made her arrangement for her teacher at school!

These two ladies made the class a girls night!

I love the way every arrangement looked just a little bit different!

Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I always wanted to open my flower shop, but for those of you who don’t know, I taught floral design at high schools for 5 years before opening Beautiful Blooms by Jen. It was an honor to be asked to teach a floral design class to my friends from the Special Events Association of Northwest Ohio, SEANO yesterday.

“SEANO is a network of event professionals representing local businesses, attractions, educational institutions, non-profits, hotels and convention bureaus committed to event programming.”

The group had a social at The Cinnamon Stick where they were able to taste their croissants, quiche, pies and ice cream cocktails. After some networking we designed a floral design using all locally grown flowers from Barn Swallow Farms.
