A bouquet of fresh-cut flowers can brighten up any room and make the ordinary seem special! However, constantly purchasing store-bought flowers can take a toll on your budget. In addition to their high cost, most flowers on the market today are imported, mass-produced, and not usually sustainably grown. Our class will cover some ideal cut flowers to be grown at home throughout the seasons and ways to add interest and texture to bouquets, while keeping things fresh and looking their best.
