We are so excited to announce our final pop-up class of the spring...at one of our favorite places! We'll be teaching two sessions at the Heath San Francisco Open Studio Event on Sunday, May 11th. We'll be working with some amazing spring flowers and the ticket price includes The Flower Recipe Book AND a Heath vessel for your arrangement. CLICK HERE for more information and to purchase tickets. It sold out really quickly last time...and you should probably bring your mom, just sayin.
Now based in Portland, OR, Françoise's two distinctive styles are URBAN WOODLAND - contemporary stylings of mosses, lichens, bark and forest floor gatherings, and FLORAL FORWARD - exquisite botanical haute couture creations of purses, headpieces and shoes. Woodland will be 9a to 12p, Botanical Couture Headpiece will be 1:30p to 4:30p. You can register for either HERE. Class is limited to 15 students...it'll fill up fast.
We can't wait to host and learn from this amazing artist. See you in May, Françoise!
My friend Jenny invited me on a little Friday Fun Day to visit Louie at his Half Moon Bay flower farm. The ranunculus were starting to come up and the mustard was in full effect! Louis collected some to saute up with garlic for his dinner, while Jenny and I harvested all the straggler blooms. We cut a few of the biggest green ranuncs I have ever seen- I can't wait to get some at market in the next few weeks! It was the best Friday I have had in a while. It is very easy to get caught up in the stress and drama of wedding production- which I have been deep in this week...so it was nice to spend time with people who are so genuinely happy to be doing what they do.
You might want to take the day off work this Wednesday March 19th. There is going to be quite the crew of flower folks on the SF Flower and Garden Show seminar schedule that day (Max Gill, Christina from Farmgirl Flowers, us, and more!) We'll be sharing our design philosophy and making some fun arrangements on The Flower Design Stage at 2:15pm. Admission to the seminars is free with the purchase of your garden show ticket. There is other awesome stuff going on all week too- hope to see ya there!
