What a beautiful blur of a weekend. For the past three days, the Floret team and I have been teaching natural floral design techniques using seasonal flowers as part of the latest Seasonal Floral Intensive workshop. (I’ll share more photos here on the blog soon, but you can also check out tagged photos on Instagram) One of my favorite segments of the workshop is demonstrating how to make hand-tied bridal bouquets. Seriously, next to decapitating perfectly good flowers and photographing them (if you follow my feed you likely already are aware of my love of creating floral art) there is little I love more than to make bridal bouquets. This one features dahlias, garden roses, scabiosa flowered zinnias, clematis and a few foraged elements from around the farm.
Here are just a few of the many beautiful (and playful!) Seasonal Flower Alliance submissions from this past week:
Want to join in the fun? Here’s a quick summary of how to participate in the Seasonal Flower Alliance:
1) Snap. Take a photo of flowers that are in season in your area, whether it is a fistful of blooms from your garden or a vase full of flowers from your local farmers market.
2) Tag. Upload your photo to Instagram with the hashtag #SeasonalFlowerAlliance.
3) Share. In your photo caption, please share what flower varieties are featured (if you know them). Bonus points for listing your location and/or USDA hardiness zone!
Each week I feature a few submissions here on the blog. Thanks for playing along!
