10 day Basic Design Class.... Vase day class photos

These designs were created by 2 students in the 10 day basic design class.  We spent the day learning about vase design in the traditional form..dozen roses and and upgraded or twist to a modern form of mixed flowers in a vase/vessel.  They chose to have these photo's posted as they were the FAVORITE designs of the day.
The 2 talented ladies in the class always do a great job with the traditional design forms...but truly love when they get to expand into a more modern style.

Floral Art Tribute

This is an interpretation of the floral art design that Wenonah created in the advanced floral design class...This is a tribute for her grandmother that passed shortly after returning home from Kansas City.

She created this design expressing the love and beauty her grandmother shared with her....I think it turned out fantastic!  I am so proud of her and this design and what a tribute for her grandmother.

These designs were created in the advanced 3 day floral design class by Wenonah Marlin.  She is a very talented lady!  In three days we explored floral art, bridal flowers & personal flowers in more of an art form and a jewelry style approach.  These are her designs....great job!!

I enjoyed spending time with her and taking her floral design skills to a new place....she enjoyed learning so many new things and I was thrilled she shared some new tips and tricks with me.  Remember we ALL love to learn new things!

Wenonah expressed the delight of the wonderful flowers and hard goods that are available to work with in the classroom...more than any other class she has taken, and you didn't have to take your designs apart to create the next design.  This made me smile :)


ARTicipation Program at Village Shalom

Bev and Christina,

 Thank you both so much for hosting the floral arranging class in connection with our ARTicipation program. I am also writing to thank you profusely for the flowers you left behind. I had an art therapy session with residents the following morning and was delighted to find the bounty of flowers in the gallery! In my ten years of working at Village Shalom, I have never seen the residents so happy about an activity. Our hour long session was a frenzy of activity and excitement. It was as if we were handing out bars of gold. Residents who walked by the gallery and had never joined this group came flying on when they would walk by. Every single tiny sprig of greenery was swept up by the participants. We had a few extra roses, so some of the residents made arrangements for staff people (the receptionist who was working directly across for the giant arrangement was so touched by her gift from these residents). People were amazed by the roses and so happy to handle flowers since many of them owned gardens before moving to Village Shalom. I also observed people in the lobby and how they interacted with the arrangement you left behind. Everyone had to look closely and smell and touch, because every single person who passed it assumed it was fake.  

 Many of the residents didn't want to attend their next activity following the group because they were afraid that the arrangements might not get back to their rooms. They were literally clutching their arrangements fearful to hand them over to the staff people who were going to return it to their rooms. It was quite a spectacle. Thank you again so much for bringing this joy to Village Shalom!

Purple Hyacinths

Purple won't be long till they are blooming in your yard.  Until then you can enjoy them as cut flowers.  And grape hyacinths as the mini version.

I love the fragrance....
