Flower Arranging


Last evening we had a mom's activity for the mom's from our co-op. My friend Susan, the florist, taught a floral arranging class at her studio. We were limited to 10 people due to space issues, 8 were signed up but only 7 were able to attend. We will likely do more of these classes.

You know I love working with flowers so this was a very fun event.

Here is how mine turned out. It is designed for a table centerpiece, to be seen from all sides.

Here are all of us who attended and our arrangements!

It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed our time with Susan.

It had been a gloomy last day of January, with a wintry mix, and bringing this floral arrangement home was great. Today we have sunshine!

Happy February Friends!


  1. Oh how beautiful! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE flowers and I know your arrangement is adding cheer to your home! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  2. Such creative fun! You all look pleased with your beautiful arrangements. What a blessing for your homes.

  3. Flowers are so colorful and pretty. You did good.

  4. Absolutely beautiful!! You are truly talented and, btw, I love that room you're all pictured in. How pretty.

  5. So beautiful, even more beautiful are the ladies who enjoy spending precious time together, creating beauty! Thank you for sharing.

  6. Working with flowers in the winter is a great way to dream of the days to come.

  7. You are gifted like my sister, Deanie! She makes such beautiful arrangements! What a fun thing y'all did and they all look so beautiful!

  8. Beautiful way to spend a few hours. Your arrangements are quite lovely!

  9. It's wonderful that you have someone who is gifted to teach others about flower arranging . . . although I am thinking that you could be that person too! Your creations are lovely, but not as lovely as the happy faces of you and the other moms!

  We are finally getting some blue skies with real clouds, and sunshine! I took sometime with Kyle and Kamryn's help to set up the deck ...
