We each made a Tussie Mussie-mine has Anemones, Ranunculus, Ivy and Rose and Mint Scented Geranium Leaves
Last night, a group of friends and I attended a flower arranging course at my favorite florist-Hoot and Heart. Their arrangements tend to be more organic and free flowing, rather than formulaic and rigid. It was a great night-we came home with a beautiful arrangemet and learned the tricks of the trade. The storefront is absolutely delightful-it is such a happy place to spend time.
My arrangement consists of:
Rose and Mint Scented Geranium Leaves-I never knew they were so many varieties!
White and Green Ivy-picked from the owners’ backyard
Yves Piaget Roses-also from the owners’ backyard! They are the full bodied roses that resemble Peonies. I learned that each flower has about 95 petals.
Smaller Sprays of Roses, a few Ranunculus, and blackberry stems are also tucked in.
It was so interesting to learn all about the flowers and the great thing about the arrangements are they are so fragrant because of the geranium leaves.
I like the imperfections of these arrangements -with something unexpected tucked in here or there. I love the mix of herbs and flowers-something Hoot and Heart does a lot.
We had such a fun time learning the tricks to flower arranging. Can’t wait to keep practicing!
