It is half way through the semester and I have posted hardly anything. I have just been very busy. So much has happened already and the bridal show is a short 17 days away. Yet I wanted to take some time to show you some of the designs that I have been working on this semester.
I have throughly enjoyed what I am learning! There is something so refreshing about working with flowers and helping to make people happy. Every week I am reminded of why I choose horticulture as my major.
This first design I can not claim as my own. A girl in one of my classes asked me to help her put together the devotional design. I loved her idea and just had to share it. I will get a chance towards the end of the semester to do this, so I was grateful for the chance to see in advance what I needed to do.

One week in our advanced floral class we studied sympathy arrangements. The arrangements were tough at first as I had never done anything that large before, but by the end of the week I believe I was starting to get the hang of it. Here is my machae piece. We also worked on easels and casket sprays.
This was just a fun design I had wanted to try for a while. I thought it would be neat to try and mimic a tree's form and then cover it with flowers. The tree is made with curly willow and is decorated with daisies. The picture is not amazing, but it works.
