Living Fresh Flower School Garden Party

28 May

mason jar floral arrangement for a garden party

With the hot weather now at our disposal, what better way to entertain than in the outdoors? The Living Fresh Flower School featured a design class on Sunday, May 27th that demonstrated the in’s and out’s of floral decor for an outdoor party. An eclectic mix of mason jars from various companies such as Crown, Bernardin, Golden Harvest and Dominion were the perfect vessels for these dainty floral pieces.

When designing for an outdoor event it is important to remember that a diverse colour palette is key: look around the gardens in your neighbourhood and you will see that every colour is represented. Garden flowers tend to be daintier in size and offer various textures – mixing these textures can be a risky one in common floral design. In garden design, texture overload in fully acceptable and encouraged.

Photographed below is a selection of some of the blooms that were provided to the students for the groupings of arrangements that they got to make for their final project.
