Spring Floral Inspiration

Last night I attended the Spring Floral Studio class at flower heaven, also known as ink & peat in Portland, Oregon. I have long loved the lush, full, wild but still tame look of the florals that designer/owner Pam Zsori puts together, and when I saw on my google reader that she was putting on this class, I called about 30 seconds later to reserve my spot. I'm soooo glad I did. The class last night was all about putting together spring arrangements in the lovely ink & peat style, taught by Pam herself. We made two arrangements, one shorter low, round, lush arrangement and one taller, looser one-sided arrangement.

Here are the results of my low, round, lush arrangement using pittosporum leaves, Dusty Miller, white wax flower, yellow stock, pinky/purple alstroemeria, pink roses, yellow ranunculus, and green moss balls. I'm super happy with the way it turned out!

And here's the taller, looser arrangement with chocolate eucalyptus, pittosporum leaves, cherry blossom branches, pink hyacinth, peach ranunculus, yellow stock, bright pink roses, pink riceflower and a little spanish moss "nest".

In between making the arrangements we had tea, mini cupcake and lintzer cookies. So sweet!
