This week in Floral Design + a NEW shop opportunity for my wedding pieces

This week in floral design class, we created another symmetrical triangle arrangement similar to last week but incorporated a St. Patricks theme to it. We used several different types of flowers including daisys, button mums and carnations keeping with the green color palette and adding pops of yellow.


What is usually a 5 hour class, turned into a 6 hour class. Even by staying an extra hour, I didn't really complete my design exactly how I wanted. I was actually pretty frustrated with this arrangement and when I finally walked out of class around 8:30pm, I was exhausted! Honestly, I didn't think flowers could really test your patience very much! lol It's a great learning experience though and I'm so ready for next weeks assignment when we create an asymmetrical piece.

In other news...
I was informed about this amazing site just for brides where they can easily browse and purchase anything and everything for their wedding right from home! It's called Cloud Parade. If you haven't heard of it, you will seriously wonder why you haven't. I know I did!
Anyway, the day I discovered Cloud Parade (thanks to my friend Aurora), I submitted an application to become a partner with them and sell my wedding pieces through their site. I recently received an email back saying that my shop has been ACCEPTED and they are excited to see my items on their site (as am I)! So now, I am working on getting my new additional shop up and running. :)
Watch this video and you will fall in love with Cloud Parade like I did!

Have a beautiful weekend my friends!

  3. That's so cool that you are taking a floral design class. I have always loved arranging flowers (just for fun) and I admire people who understand floral design.

    By the way, I just found your blog and it's adorable!
