Last Sunday was one of the brightest highlights of all my floral work over the past years: I was honored with the opportunity to teach a workshop at the Norton Simon Museum! I married two subjects that I love so dearly for this workshop: storytelling + flower arranging. What a wonderful, fun-filled afternoon we had all set in the zen garden at the museum! Above are a few outtakes from my workshop. I have to say that I am always so touched by everyone's intentions behind their creations, especially so when they share their stories at the end of class. Every story was so different and every arrangement stood apart. They were stunning! Such keen floral work and with such nuanced intentions. I was very proud of everyone who participated.

Thank you so kindly to everyone who showed up and participated in this afternoon of flowers and stories. It was an honor to have you! 

A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to the Norton Simon museum for this gracious opportunity!

Hi friends + dear readers! What an honor:  this coming Sunday, come and join me at the beautiful Norton Simon Museum from 11am - 2pm! We'll be discussing the importance of flowers in storytelling and then creating our own stories with wildflowers! I'll be providing you with a few vase options and tons of incredibly fresh blooms for you to use, including the much coveted Chinese yellow peonies (see image above).
