Peonies are one of my favorite flowers and loved by many others. It's a very popular pick for most because of its vibrant color and gorgeous bloom. Unfortunately, they have a very short season, becoming available around March and into early summer.
My husband got me a Peony floral arranging class as a Mothers Day from Garden Party Florals. I've always wanted to take a class in order to learn the basics. It was such a useful workshop, we got to understand how to pick flowers and colors schemes, what purpose they serve in the arrangement and other little industry tricks.
The owner and our instructor, Amy Hu provide us with a nice little spread of treats and bevies and the first part of the workshop, we spent some time overviewing some tips and off to the races we went. She opened up her shop and access to all the flowers and we began picking what we thought would work along with her guidance.
Check with them on the website to see what they are offering as they do not offer workshops all the time. But if this one comes up again, I would highly recommend it!
