It's that time of year where I kind of lose my mind a little bit.
Yes, spring time is here and I've had cabin fever for about 3 months too long. I am not sure exactly what happens, but something inside me snaps one day and all of a sudden I want all the windows open, gravitate towards bright cheery colors, and want to blanket my house beautifully fragrant fresh flowers.
I'm antsy to soak in the fresh new season, so you can imagine my excitement when my blog friend and floral guru, Emily Walters, invited me to a class of The Bloom Academy. She's a modern day Martha Stewart, y'all! Of course I was thrilled with the possibility of learning how to turn my grocery store blooms into gorgeous centerpieces at home on a budget.
Goodbye days of $50 arrangements, hello newly found green thumb!
After we chatted and chowed down, it was time to roll up our sleeves and get to work. I love how approachable, effortless, and non-intimidating Emily makes floral arranging. She had her little display table up front, while each of us were at our work stations, so she could walk us through the process step-by-step. We asked questions along the way, and she even taught us great tricks on how to keep arrangements vibrant and fresher longer.
It was so fun to see all of the creative ways that my classmates arranged their flowers. I have to tell you that I was so impressed by how gorgeous and professional each arrangement turned out, so that must mean one thing... Emily is the BEST teacher!
The great news is that you don't have to just be local to benefit from The Bloom Academy! That's right, Emily offers an incredible online membership (at a great price) with exclusive resources just for members - check it out:
If you happen to be a local to the Kansas City area, I definitely recommend that you grab your girlfriends and sign up for this class!
I promise you will be cranking out beautiful floral arrangements to decorate your home or gift to friends/family in no time. I've already been experimenting with my garden blooms using the great tips and tricks I used.
And Emily just announced that she is even expanding her services to teach private Bloom Bash parties! I love that she offers different packages that include flowers 101 to making gorgeous floral crowns - so fun! What a fun idea to combine a little bubbly + blooms for a baby shower, bachelorette party, wedding shower, or just a fun girls day!
