MOON CANYON FLORAL WORKSHOP

i am really getting addicted to hosting these workshops. they always turn out so pretty and i leave feeling inspired and excited by all of the new energy. the theme behind this series of floral classes was citrus and early spring blooms. selected a beautiful and unique range of florals and each student learned how to create a citrus hued arrangement. spring happens to have some of my favorite flowers; ranunculus, sweet peas,  garden roses and poppies. and i loved seeing how combined those with kumquats, ferns and hyacinth to make something truly spectacular.

PS! this workshop was also covered by , check out their site

amy from created these ridiculously awesome color-wheels that depicted the range of citrus tones that the students would be working with, it really helped in understanding how to select a color palette when you are arranging on your own.

those  have proved to be a great investment. they add the perfect finishing touch to the studio on workshop days.

did such an amazing job with these photos, it made my morning looking through all of the images and it was nearly impossible to narrow down my selects!

taught the students the trick to building a base for your arrangement and how to follow an asymmetrical pattern. i love looking at each students final arrangement because even though they all start with the same ingredients they all look different and unique at the end. everyone takes their own spin on kristen’s instructions and the finished products are always impressive.

supplied the students with juices that were the perfect colors to compliment the flowers. my favorite was the cucumber, pineapple and lemon.

created a stunning spread of citrus themed dishes including grapefruit salad, homemade croissants and lemon shortbread cookies.

i love how simple & fresh the spread looked in the white studio.

floral arranging is a definite skill and it’s crazy to see how one small tip or trick can dramatically alter the bouquet. we had a Q&A at the end of each session where the students could ask kristen questions about florals, anything from how to cut the stem to the ins and outs of the flower mart. 

i was particularly fond of the kumquat branches in the arrangement.

 

the morning set-up before these events is frantic but it is always more than worth it in the end. i love seeing the studio transformed in so many different ways and watching the student’s faces and excitement as they arrive never gets old.

 

it was great to see all of the elements come together and i can’t imagine a more perfect way to spend a sunny saturday.

we receive a lot of e-mails asking about when our next series of workshops will be. if you’re curious, you can sign up for our workshop newsletter here. we send out announcements for upcoming classes and ticket sales ahead of time so you’ll be able to beat the rush!

p.s. thanks for putting up with the long post, i cut it down as much as possible, i promise!

HOLIDAY WREATH DIY

The Holidays are my most beloved time of year. As a florist, we are advocates for bringing the outdoors in. During the Holiday’s we are decking the halls with garlands, mistletoe, and wreaths.

Here is a very simple and fun wreath to make.

what you’ll need:

• grapevine wreath base
• cedar
• balsam fir
• acacia
• pine
• hemlock
• really any evergreen will do!

Start by creating your outer edges and working in towards your center. All you have to do is cut the pieces of green and tuck the into the grapevine base. The base is twisted up enough that it will hold the branches really well. No need for messing around with wire.

I really like asymmetry and so really there is no wrong way here! I like to keep the greens long and let them reach out and be wild.

It’s nice mix a bunch evergreens with different textures and shades of green. This creates such a wonderful winter forest palette. You can accent with ribbon or pine cones for an extra holiday burst.

With the extra bits and clippings from the wreaths I made these holiday corsages. Any chance I get to adorn myself with florals, I take it!

These corsages are basically petite posies tied with wire and accented with ribbon. If you have flowers that you want to add to the evergreens feel free to tie those in there as well. Pin them on and you have a beautiful fresh accent to your holiday look. Plus the scent is seriously amazing!

MY FAVORITE DAY IN STOCKHOLM

garden

this place was a dream, i tell ya. on my last day in stockholm, and took me to , a beautiful garden open to the public. it was one of those days i will never ever forget.

you get off the ferry and walk about 15 minutes through tree-lined trails (it’s sort of tricky to find) and then you see this little white greenhouse in the distance…

each greenhouse served a different purpose. a little store, an event space, and the last one was where we had our beautiful lunch.
