Flower Decorating Birthday Party

This post is quite late in the sharing but better late than never right?  (It's my party and I'll post when I want to...post when I want to... post when I want to.)



Being the ripe old age of 41 years old, I have startling little wisdom to share but I do have a few tidbits. One of those is celebrating a birthday with gusto.  I celebrated all month long doing a variety of things but last year I decided to do something a little different with a flower arranging class party.  I threw it together a bit last minute but it was perfectly laid back and fun.

When I stumbled into Rebecca Shepard's floral studio, I was so smitten with the gorgeous wall mural (painted by Gaia Street art), I knew it would be the perfect spot.  Of course I had no idea how talented and just down right cool Rebecca Shepard herself would be until that day but I can assure you she is all that and more.

When we arrived, the room was chock full of buckets full of fresh flowers.  Each of us had a work station with an inspirational photo and pair of shears and we got to work.  Rebecca explained step by step how to create a beautifully arrangement while still letting each of us go in our own directions. The result were startlingly different final results despite having the exact same starting vase, flower options and direction.




Naturally we needed some refreshments! I brought some bellini bar fixings, champagne, snacks.  Rounding out the nibbles were these beautiful flower cupcakes made by Nikki Berry.





A couple hours and a couple of bottles of champagne later, we all went home with some gorgeous arrangements and a head full of tips to create new ones in the future. Happy Birthday to me!

    1. Thank you! I had a great time plus I learned so much from Rebecca. I won't be opening up a floral shop anytime soon but I feel so much better educated on how to create something lovely on my own now.
