Last night, Rob was scheduled for a night flight (3 flights left in Primary!!!) which worked out perfect because I had already signed up for a girls night floral design class with Junior League at Fiore. Fiore is this adorable flower shop located in downtown Pensacola which, in addition to doing gorgeous weddings, event, and every day flowers, hosts fun classes in their studio during the summer.
The owner Shannon is simply wonderful! She is extremely knowledgeable and made me feel right at home as soon as I arrived. She is creative but totally open to whatever ideas you have, even if that idea is just to open another bottle of wine (Our class was a little rambunctious!) I am quite the teacher’s pet and need a lot of positive feedback but her assistant Leigh Ann was so patient and sweet as well! It made the class really low key without pressure to be perfect. Everyone’s designs turned out different but were all gorgeous!
We started off the class by learning a little about the history of the building (it used to be an old carriage house!) and then got started learning to make our arrangement step by step. I had never done anything like this before but Shannon and Leigh Ann really broke it down to simple steps and gave us lots of individual feedback. I am so excited to try out the techniques using flowers from the farmers market! At the end of the night, we stuck around to socialize for a bit then were able to take our gorgeous arrangements home to enjoy!
Off to put Fiore‘s number in my husband’s cellphone. Subtle (or not so subtle) hints can’t hurt right 😉
