I was extra excited for this beautiful, special, unique, girls' event! I keep a lil wish list of fun ideas that I hope & wish to experience. Hosting a flower arranging party has been on my list for a few years! Well...I STILL haven't done it, but instead, this fall, I had the opportunity to attend something entirely similar.
Kelly, of 3 Leaf Floral, is a local flower artist with an abundance of talent. She creates incredible flower arrangements! I am so excited that she lives in our little Colorado town, ready to offer us floral beauty! Kelly, and a small group of other talented girls, got together to host a FLOWER POTLUCK. Each guest brings a flower bundle, Kelly teaches tips and gives a demonstration, then we each get to choose from long rows of colorful flowers to create our own bouquets to take home. I was super excited about this night!
The details, shapes, colors, scents, of every single flower is truly incredible! God loves us SO much to gift us with the pleasure of flowers!
This event was hosted at an old, charming grey house, tucked in, near main street.
Downtown living: where every house square is like a unique quilt block
and where trees line every street.

We gathered outside for our flower arranging lessons.
All of the colors were extra beautiful on this bright fall day.
Kelly has so much skill!
She showed us how to do more than just stuff a vase.
After our lesson,
all the girls had a chance to arrange our flowers into vases.
Picking our favorites...

After our arrangements were complete,
we came inside for good food and fun chats.
We had a big collection of delicious bites!
It was a lovely evening of beauty-making,
a flirtatious interaction
with all of 5 of our senses,
to inhale the delicate allurement
of the world around us.
