Being a wedding planner, I'm expected to save the day, every day. From wine stains on wedding gowns to crying flower girls. One skill I really want to pick up this year is floral design and arranging. I don't want to quit my awesome gig to become a florist, but it's a nice skill to have...just in case! So, I jumped at the chance to attend a workshop with the sweet and talented Heather from Twig & Twine. Her flowers are always so pretty, whimsical, and free. I love her eco friendly and organic approach to floral design. As much as possible, Heather buys from local growers and composts all the leftover greens. Minimal manipulation, conscious buying, and wildly beautiful arrangements.
After 3 hours and 2 glasses of wine, I was able to arrange a bouquet I'm super proud of. Many thanks to Heather for the fun class and hugs to Vanessa Ha for these beautiful photos.
