this was a great class and overall experience! learned a lot and excited to put it to use.

Emily Desmonie Jan 2023

This class was amazing! I loved Elise's approach to arranging, which started with grounding and learning the basic rules before making our own arrangements. We learned so much and had a great time while there. She picked out gorgeous flowers and we got to pick everything about our arrangement down to the vase. Highly recommend as a group activity that is something new and different.
