This past Sunday was for welcoming Spring, enjoying friends, drinking wine, and flowers.
I decided to throw a little flower arranging party. I got the idea from a British detective show from the 90’s. (of course I did). The old church ladies were arranging flowers together while being questioned by the detective and I thought, “well this is just brilliant and right up my alley! Am I old?”
I then went on Pinterest and saw that this was an actual thing that people do, so I’m not really that out of touch, and my friends got really into it!
Everyone brought a few bunches of flowers, something to arrange in and a little snack. I was nervous about the size of my condo, but we all fit comfortably and ended up having a great time.
Not everyone knew each other, but what better way to make new friends than over flower arranging? Amiright?
Everyone hard at work…
My beautiful sister, Susan picking out her flowers. We kind of had a mother load of flowers. It was really great to have 8 different ladies pick out the stems. I think we all walked away with arrangements we hadn’t even imagined.
**sidenote: Susan teased me first about throwing this party. It’s very me and not so much her….we thought. She walked in with her arms overflowing with bunches, and she created some of the days top arrangements. Looks like she found a new hidden talent! (Not that I was all that surprised. I mean if you can work magic with hair and arrange lyrics so beautifully, then surely you can sculpt with flowers as well, no?)
Now, I know I invited some of my most creative friends, but I didn’t realize how beautiful everything would turn out! And having fresh flowers in the house all week has been an extremely fragrant treat!
If you are looking for an inexpensive and really enjoyable afternoon with your girlfriends, I highly recommend a flower arranging party!
