living fresh flower school – rubies and gold flower class

December 12, 2011

Sunday December 11th was the Living Fresh Flower School’s four flower class, Rubies and Gold at the Button Factory in Uptown Waterloo. In this class we mixed red flowers with gold accents to create festive table centrepieces. Five students attended the class and all went home with fabulous pieces of floral art!
