Cake Decorating doesn't start for a few weeks, but I had Flower Design last night. The reason behind this particular class was A) I can't have worked in a florist shop and still make arrangements similar in look to kindergarteners free-forming it while high on pixie sticks, B) I still make arrangements similar to said kindergarteners high on pixie sticks, C) I will never mention this class to my former boss and instead pretend I picked this talent up osmosis-style while de-thorning 200 Sunset roses a day.
Looks like this will be a good class (though taste level of classmates is most definitely questionable, particularly noted after they heartily agreed to a lesson devoted to making a flower birthday cake and POODLE). I am sure the frozen smile on my face looked sincere. Here is my first arrangement - garden-style - as my instructor called it:
Sisters and friends take note: one lesson is planned for bouquet-making!
