Denver Arranging Class

IMG_8113.JPG

I grew up in Colorado along the Front Range and attended college in Ft. Collins, CO. While I haven’t lived in Colorado in over 15 years I still regularly travel home to see family and visit a few friends. After hosting a series of flower arranging classes in Sheridan, people were clambering for a chance to play with flowers in Colorado too!

The boy joined me for a weekend at his Auntie’s house with cousins and flowers.

I planned a casual Saturday afternoon class at the super cool Rocker Spirits in Littleton, CO. The guys opened up early for us, shoveled snow and served up some stellar cocktails while we played with some super bright and fun Spring flowers.

In an attempt to break free from the typical flowers found in February I went with punchy and bright oranges and yellows. Garden Roses in yellow, orange protea and crazy fun yellow Mimosa provided texture while tulips and stock provided bulk.

As we had the space completely to ourselves, we moved the tables around and guests choose a vase for making. Cocktails and flowers are a pretty great combo.

We had sisters, college friends, childhood neighbors and the world’s coolest aunt in attendance.

I highly recommend Rocker Spirits for a fun date night out & superb seasonal cocktail. If you’re in the greater Denver area go visit! Grab a bite from their food truck to pair with your drink!

I’m hoping this can be an annual event for us to gather, catch up on life and create something beautiful together. Who’s in for 2019? Make sure you’re signed up for our email list to stay in the loop and get notifications for future classes.

Winter & Spring Class Schedule

All of the gatherings I hosted around flowers in 2017 filled my heart to overflowing. Today I'm launching a few new classes for 2018. I'll bring the best flowers of the season from anemones to tulips, all the tools you'll need and a little inspiration for our time together. Bring an open heart, willing hands and a friend to laugh and create with and everyone goes home with a smile and flowers to enjoy for the week. Check out the classes page to see availability and sign up!

Space is limited and registration closes one week prior to each class. If you are interested in hosting a private class for a special occasion like a birthday, bridal or baby shower, graduation or other celebration - please let me know! I'd love to plan something just for you and the people you love.

A Christmas Class

Today I was joined by a lively group of women  - we ate scones, filled the room with laughter and made some beautiful centerpieces. Each unique and reflecting the maker.  We used camellia foliage (with buds!) juniper and mint for our greenery, gorgeous heart roses, red spray roses, white ranunculus and a sweeping spray of James Storie Orchids. These arrangements turned out lush and so fragrant.  

Last night I finished all my prep for the class and took a few little bits to make a fun and festive wreath/crown - perhaps my favorite one ever!

I'm so looking forward to a 2018 and a new round of classes - who's in?? Here are a few pictures from our morning over scones and coffee at The Union at the Montgomery. 

The women I've met through flowers this year are a treasure and I am so thankful for each one. Their enthusiasm and joy in flowers is so good for my heart and I can't wait to meet more of you in 2018. Love flowers? Want more in your life? Let's connect

Thanksgiving - a recap & Christmas class!

In November I hosted the first ever Whirly Girl Centerpiece class at The Union at the Montgomery here in Sheridan, WY. An incredible group of women came for the evening, shared lots of laughs, a glass of wine and created lovely arrangements to take home. While they all started with the same base ingredients, each one was completely unique and beautiful. 

Thinking back on my journey into flowers and this life full of beautiful blooms - I realized that the sharing and giving of flowers is a large part of why I'm here. The joy on someone's face when you hand them something beautiful or unexpected brings a spark to life. Whether it's a single perfect stem or a grand bouquet packed with flowers - there's a little bit of flower magic there and I want more of it in my life. 

I'll be hosting a special Christmas centerpiece  class over brunch on Saturday, December 23rd and I hope you'll join me. We'll make a festive arrangement and enjoy some of my famous scones while we work. Bring a friend or family member. Maybe you'll buy the class as an early gift for someone who prefers an experience and loves flowers. Sign up here. Class size is limited and registration closes on December 15th. I hope to see you there!
