I put my growing flower knowledge to use recently by hosting my very first flower workshop! I focused on bouquet basics, offering entry level tips and tricks for flower arranging novices. We had 25 attendees and everyone walked away with an adorable centerpiece. Talk about a rewarding experience.
I still can't believe it and looking back at these photos makes me realize just how nervous I was because I don't remember any of it. I hosted the workshop as part of a lunchtime "Brown Bag" series at work. It's an opportunity for the different URBN brands and local business to offer up their expertise on a variety of topics to employees. The hour long break from the work week is often a welcome relief from the normal hustle bustle. Here's a look at what went down:
Because BHLDN is the special occasion brand it only makes sense that we would teach something having to do with entertainment and elevating the everyday. Flowers bring so much beauty and joy to life and it was thrilling to watch the "students" happily chat with one another, select their flowers and slowly create their mini masterpieces (you snap their vases here). Every so often I'd look out and see someone smelling the roses or grin uncontrollably at their creation.
I'm honored that I was asked to host the workshop and more than one person asked when we would do it again. I'll take that as a sign that they liked it too. - b.
