I don’t know if you remember my New Year’s Resolutions post, but one of things I proposed to do was try a new hobby. Cross that one off the list! BAM! Okay, okay, I don’t know if I’d go as far as calling floral arranging a hobby just quite yet, but I do really, really enjoy it! I’ve always been a person that loves all things creative, and working with my hands. Knowing I’ve made something by hand always makes me feel really accomplished!
I’m sure you’re wondering how I fell into such a random practice as floral arranging, and to make a long story short (which is really difficult for this talkative girl!), I started taking classes at a local Michael’s craft store. (You should do a little research and see if any near you offer the same sort of thing. They have lots of variety from knitting to cake decorating! Move over Cake Boss, I’m trying that next)
Up to this point, I’ve attended 3 floral classes, and I thought I’d share some of the fundamentals with you in case you wanted to give it a whirl! Seriously, anyone can do this and it’s completely customizable from the container to the colors and variety of plants and flowers you choose.

You should totally give this try! It’s therapeutic and results in a pretty solid decor piece! #winwin
