Saturday was full of flowers!  I attended the Flirty Fleurs Arch and Chuppah workshop, along with Shawn from Flower Bar Co. in Coeur d'Alene and Jen from Black House Flowers here in Seattle.   Our instructor, Alicia of Flirty Fleurs, had 2 arches and 2 Chuppahs for us to cover in flowers and foliage - some of it foraged from her gorgeous property near Mt. Vernon.  It took us the better part of 8 hours to complete all four.  I'm glad to have made the investment: without the floral element, these structures look unfinished and naked!  Now I have a solid understanding of the mechanics involved to create a really polished look.
