Floral Fundamental Workshops

FLOWER CHILD

Date: Saturday, APRIL 22, 2017
Time: 2 PM – 4:30 PM
Location: Love ‘n Fresh Flowers | Philadelphia PA

Celebrate spring by learning to make beautiful, ethereal wearable floral art, including a romantic floral crown and fresh flower necklace. Students will stroll the farm, in its sleepy early spring state, to gather their own flowers to use. Ranunculus and muscari will abound.  We’ll then get cozy and creative inside the cottage-style design space at the farm, designing flower crowns and necklaces.  Jennie will carefully demonstrate all the necessary tools and techniques so even beginners will find this class fun and enjoyable. As time permits, Jennie will also demonstrate how to make other floral apparel, such as boutonnieres, corsages and rings.  Frolicking through the flower fields, crown on head, is strongly encouraged at the end!

 

SPRING CENTERPIECES

Date: Saturday, MAY 13, 2017

Time: 1 PM – 3 PM
Location: Love ‘n Fresh Flowers | Philadelphia PA

The perfect Mother’s Day gift!!!  Either bring Mom or make a beautiful arrangement to take to her. Start class off with a walk through the flower fields and greenhouses to learn about the colorful and diverse varieties of spring blooms that are being grown at Love ‘n Fresh Flowers.  Say hello to the ducks and pick some kale to feed them (their favorite!).  Harvest flowers by the armful  – gather ranunculus, tulips, poppies, anemones, sweet peas, and many more in bright hues to design your own lush and vibrant spring centerpiece right there in the field where they were grown.  A beautiful, hand-crafted vase will be provided for each student and is yours to keep.

 

ROMANCED BY PEONIES

Date: Saturday, JUNE 3, 2017
Time: 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM
Location: Love ‘n Fresh Flowers | Philadelphia PA

Peonies!  Big, billowy, fragrant peonies!  Early June is peak season, and we’ll dive headfirst into creating gorgeous romantic “overgrown” arrangements heaped full of peonies.  A beautiful copper bowl will be provided for each student to use and is yours to keep.  Walk long rows of blooms at the farm and harvest as your heart desires. Learn how to craft a loose, lush, “earthy elegant” arrangement that is the signature look at Love ‘n Fresh Flowers.

 

SUMMER SOLSTICE SOIREE 

Date: Sunday, JUNE 25, 2017
Time: 7 PM – 9 PM
Location: Love ‘n Fresh Flowers | Philadelphia PA

On one of the longest evenings of the year, celebrate the solstice and enjoy the golden summer twilight in our flower fields. Walk the long rows of colorful blooms and visit with the ducks while sipping cocktails. Sit around long farm tables or in unique lounges set up around the farm to eat seasonal flatbreads from the infamous Jules Thin Crust truck (great gluten free options available too).  Enjoy some live music and linger until dusk settles into night.
