Living Fresh Flower School – Holiday Ice and Snow Flower Class

November 30, 2011

Sunday, November 27th was the Living Fresh Flower School’s Holiday Ice and Snow flower class. Deb and I had the pleasure of teaching 7 very talented ladies how to creative a festive floral piece in stemmed glassware. We also had a fun craft for the ladies, teaching them how to make decorative accents for their arrangements with crystal stars and diamond beads and some wire.

The class was held at the historic Button Factory in Uptown Waterloo.
