Really the point of this post is to document that for ONCE in my life I did not just buy a couple bouquets of grocery store roses, trim the stems, plop them into a vase, and call it a day. Here, in all of its glorious beauty, is my first, actual flower arrangement, created at the DesignLoveFest flower arranging workshop in downtown LA. I made that. I made that!! With the exception of the brown fuzzy tentacle at 11:00, I think it's pretty perfect.
Thanks to Bri, whose blog I have adored since college and who has a similar outlook toward doing her hair as I do (i.e. rarely), for hosting the workshop, and Kristen for leading the workshop and showing us her jedi ways of flower arranging!
