We don’t know about you, but here at Orchard Lane Flowers, we’re still giddy over the prospect of actual, IRL, face-to-face get-togethers. If anything good came out of the pandemic, it’s a renewed appreciation for connecting with delightful people, like our customers, neighbors, and fellow team members in-person.
One of the things we love at Orchard Lane are our floral workshops, held here at our Clintonville shop! And even though we’ve been back for a while, we’re still full of gratitude for these monthly events. Our workshops always seem to take on a party energy. People come with friends — or often by themselves — and quickly get caught up in the group fun. We always make great memories with our customers and friends — chatting, laughing, and, of course, creating gorgeous flower arrangements to take home and show off to our families and friends. (Tip: If you’re interested in a particular workshop, sign up early, because space is limited and we fill up quickly!) For our March workshop, we made beautiful and aromatic wreaths with the herby, evergreen scent of rosemary, invigorating eucalyptus, and the soft, floral notes of lavender.
We always switch up the workshops so participants get experience with (and
inspired by!) different flowers and greens, vessels, techniques, and project types, including arrangements, bouquets, centerpieces, and wreaths. Our goal is to get students to build on their capabilities and combine their techniques to make amazing floral designs at home.
Upcoming Floral Workshops: Grab Your Besties and Join UsAll of our floral workshops are taught by our brilliant and talented floral designer Melonie and are held on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. at our Clintonville store.
