On Sunday, my good friend Summer of uberfab wedding style blog Grey Likes Weddings taught her first DIY (do it yourself) flower arranging workshop, and I couldn't have been more excited to go and see how she does her thing! Summer comes from a very creative family. She's got three sisters and a mom who frequently storm weddings, showers, and parties, and unleash loads of creativity and awesomeness all over them, making everything they touch look amazing. What a dream team! Plus, they're all drop-dead gorgeous and as nice as you could imagine. Life's just not fair sometimes :)

Anyway, Jasmine and I had a nice lunch before heading over, and put our newfound skills to work!

I took most of these photos with permission from Jasmine's blog :)

Summer and the family had the place decorated so cute:


Cookies and milk--the cutest, most delicious snack!


A few pretty little details:


Summer showing us the way of arranging:


Using unusual elements is one of the key ideas of the day--here's me holding and arranging some Kale


Jasmine thinks this is an overview of Summer teaching the class, but it's really a photo of me looking confused:


Jasmine and I worked together on our arrangement. It started off good, took a sharp left to hideous, and was finally rescued by Cheryl, Summer's mom, and Summer. At least Jasmine looked cute arranging:


Cheryl and Summer demonstrating their bouquet skills--isn't this so pretty??


And isn't Summer pretty? I shot the photo on the left:


Everyone's arrangements turned out really different!



Summer has already scheduled her next workshop! You should definitely go if you like flowers, cookies, weddings, fun things to do with friends, or champagne :) **CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO** and to snag a spot--they sell out quick!
