I am even in love with the NAME of their shop!

Now, I have only seen photos and heard snippets of things about this floral shop on social media, word of mouth, etc., and I have to say, I am excited! I know they have beautiful arrangements for weddings, parties, just because (the best), holidays. One thing I didn’t know they hosted were Workshops.

Ashley and I will be attending a Floral Arranging Workshop!!!! What a sweet way to get quality visiting time in with a good friend, learn something new and take home the beautiful creation that adds beauty and the memory of the evening to your home!
