    tiny paper umbrellas for “April Showers”

    Welcome to Brenda Tunis, TheDCH‘s new floral arranging instructor, who brought a wonderful gathering vase project for us to create. Imagine a lovely cutting garden full of color and scent and then put it into a vase, that’s what we got to do! This more traditional bouquet style is designed by placing the tallest flowers in first (larkspur), then adding and layering by height : stock, alstroemeria, daisy mums, waxflowers,tulips, ranunculus, ¬†with sweet peas and ferns added to “frame” the bouquet.

    Chatting, snacking and creating , such a lovely way to end the day! Don’t miss Brenda’s next workshop on “Blooming Topiaries” which will be held on Wednesday, May 22 (5:30-7:00 pm) . Sign up now!
