I took a peonies arranging class in June with the sisters of Flower Duet. The class was fantastic. It started with a two-hour tour of the LA Flower Mart where I learned the basics of picking the best flowers. Following the tour was a two-hour, hands-on class where I received step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the flowers, care for them, and piece together a beautiful floral arrangement. I also received a DVD video to view at home on how to create a hand-held bouquet. After making my own arrangements for the past few months, I have to say, flower arranging is definitely an art. It is not easy to make an arrangement look balanced and esthetically pleasing. I am hoping with enough practice, I can create my own centerpieces and bridal bouquet for the big day. How am I doing so far?
