Last night, the Newlyweds and I attended a floral arranging class at a local nursery/gift store/event venue/restaurant/pick your own flower farm (the owner, who is an acquaintance of ours from Petticoat Junction, likes to cover all the bases).
We got to learn all about arranging bouquets while sipping Chardonnay and nibbling on pommes frites, roasted Brussels sprouts, Caprese salad, and hummus with pita chips. It was an incredibly fun way to spend a Thursday evening and we are hoping that they will offer additional courses in the fall.
When we got to the venue, we were greeted with bucket upon bucket of freshly-cut flowers and greenery.
Ok, maybe not masterful. I mean, we won't be quitting our day jobs or anything. But! We did a pretty damn good job, if I do say so, myself.
And we had fun. So much fun; we are planning to hit the flower farm tomorrow to cut our own stems for even more bouquets that we will make at home, where, coincidentally, I also have wine.
It's going to be a great weekend.
