Mother's Day Floral Arrangement Workshop

IMG_2438-blog

A couple months ago, a young local man was diagnosed with terminal cancer and a Silent Auction was set up on Facebook to help raise money for him & his family.  In true small town nature, everyone rallied by donating and bidding and thousands of dollars were raised.

One of the items donated was a 1.5 hr floral arrangement workshop lead by the wonderful Claudia Fleming.  My sister bid & won on the fabulous prize, and she treated me, my mom, her mother-in-law & sister-in-law to a fun morning just in time for Mother's Day!

It's safe to say that all of us were a little nervous when we arrived.  None of us had experience with floral arrangements.  Some of us garden, but then there is someone like me who can barely keep a houseplant alive.  It was actually quite fun!  Claudia was charming and taught us a few simple tricks & the basics behind floral arrangements... but really left it up to us to be creative and to put together something we would love.

We all put together a different arrangement... even though we all started with the exact same supplies & flowers!!  We laughed and had a great time!  I would highly recommend Claudia for your floral needs, whether it be for your wedding or if you're looking for something different to do with your girlfriends, take one of her classes!

The morning ended with some yummy baked goodies and tea & coffee.  It was a great start to the Mother's Day weekend, and I'm so happy I got to share the experience with some of the greatest mommies I know!

Happy Mother's Day, friends!  Hope your day is filled with love & cuddles!
