stems flower school

One recent Sunday, Jenn, Christine, Kristin, and I took a bike ride over to Ditmas Park for a flower arranging class at Stems, the flower shop inside Sycamore Bar. The class was very informal and our sweet teacher only gave us a few pointers (and a couple mixed drinks) before setting us loose on some gorgeous floral ingredients. After learning a few basics, we were able to pull together some loose, organic arrangements with a mix of "face flowers" (the pretty, colorful ones) and greenery. 

We didn't plan on carrying large mason jar vases home, so Jenn (the only one with a basket) had to bike all our arrangements home safely. She was a champ! Thanks, Jenn!

It was such a laid back, free spirited class (and not very expensive). I highly recommend it as a fun afternoon with your girlfriends!


  1. And we made it back with only spilled water! No broken jars. Take that Brooklyn pot holes!

  2. Such a fun idea! Those flowers are all gorgeous!!

  3. what a cool idea! i'd love to try something like this one day :)

  4. I think the fact that there are actually "flower schools" really goes to show how much skill is actually involved in being a florist. Most people seem to think you just stick a bunch of flowers together and it's just that easy - well let me tell you, there's more to it than that!
