In floral design class a couple weeks ago, we created a "puppy in a basket" arrangement. I never really understood the point of this design. Like, why give a flower dog to someone?! Ha! Never the less, I made one anyways because that was the assignment. I was supposed to add a little "tongue" and bows to the dog but I had to leave class early this day so it went without. I have to admit though, it turned out pretty cute!
We used carnations, daisies, wax flower, asters, lemon leaf and ming fern to create this design.
This past week, we created 2 designs. First, we made a corsage using a rose, daisies, alstromeria, babies breath and ming fern.
We also made a topiary last week using alstroemeria, daisies, mini carns, babies breath, ming fern and topped with a butterfly. I think the original arrangement would have looked much better if my alstroemeria actually matched the other flowers because it looks like a big disconnect from the rest of the arrangement. I ended up removing the "ball" of alstroemeria when I got home and created a round arrangement with the alstroemeria throughout.
As for the wedding and event planning course, I just finished up the lesson all about attire. This one made me want to go wedding dress shopping again! Maybe I can just pretend to be a bride and go to some bridal salons to try on pretty dresses??? Hmmmm
I re-learned about all of the different dress styles, cuts, veils as well as bridesmaids and groom attire. For the groom, I had NO IDEA that there were so many different choices of wear. There's formal daytime wear, formal evening wear, semi-formal daytime wear, semi-formal evening wear and informal daytime and evening wear with all of these consisting of different style suites and jackets (tuxedos, dinner jackets, cutaway coats, morning suits, etc.). I always thought that you either wear a tux or a nice shirt with a vest or jacket with trousers as a groom. Does anyone else know of all these different styles?! This goes to show my lack of knowledge when it comes to men's wear. lol
The next lesson is titled "All the Parties." This one should be fun! :)
Have a beautiful day my friends!
