The Beautiful Blooms by Jen Christmas centerpiece class was fabulous!  We had so many different interpretations of our centerpiece and we love it when people get creative!

This floral design class was packed as we headed into holidays, especially since this arrangement was sure to knock their stockings off!

• Sarah explained to everyone the different techniques to making a full and lasting arrangement.

•These ladies were hard at work making sure their pieces turned out perfectly… and they did!

...

• The winter greens make the arrangements so full, long-lasting and fragrant. Nothing beats fresh pine!

...

• The arrangement had a little  more traditional look with greens, red flowers, plaid ribbon and a candle.  They were a beautiful addition to everyone’s tables!

...

• These girlfriends had so much fun and look how beautiful the centerpieces turned out!

For this blog I (Sarah) will be guest writing while Jen takes maternity leave to spend time with sweet Jaxon and his big brother Cooper.

Just recently we hosted our Thanksgiving Centerpiece design class at The Cinnamon Stick since we can’t fit 20 plus people in our small little flower shop. I have floated around and help to assist in design classes for the past couple of years, but for this last class Jen and Colleen gave me the opportunity to teach my first one! When I say “gave me” the opportunity, it was more like “spring it on me 15 minutes before the class started”. Anxiety alert, especially when this was my first time teaching and in front of so many people. If I may toot my own horn, I am happy to say it ended up going great!

Check out the pictures below to see what everyone created!

For all of our classes we give basic guidelines and tips, then everyone is able to use their own creative flair to create a custom centerpiece.

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.

We hosted an Easter Centerpiece Class the Thursday before Easter because we had such a blast at our Christmas Class. This class was a smaller class, but the class participants commented how they enjoyed the smaller class more because there was more individual help.

Thank you to the Cinnamon Stick for hosting our class!

The centerpiece we made was in a white basket and included blue hydrangea, yellow lilies and bright colored carnations, mums and tulips. Plus we added some Easter eggs!

On Friday we had a private class for a group of new moms. They weren’t able to make it to our class on Thursday and asked if we could schedule a separate class. We love to host private events! The group brought in appetizers and wine since it was after hours and we had a blast!
