a fun new hobby.

Our local Whole Foods is always offering fun classes for the community. In addition to the kids classes I've been taking Bennet to, I decided to sign up for an adult class this month - a Floral Arranging Brunch. My friend, Rachel, went with me this morning, and we had a great time.

There were all sorts of pastries, quiches, fruits and drinks, in addition to the floral arrangement class - yum! Our teacher works for Whole Foods doing all of their floral arrangements. She was a great teacher, and really took her time to teach us how to make a floral arrangement from start to finish. We learned everything from what kinds of flowers to pick out for an arrangement, to what order to assemble your arrangement in. Today being the first day of Spring, it seemed fitting to bring home a beautiful basket of flowers for my dining room table!

I was surprised how simple making an arrangement was, and I'll definitely try this at home myself next time I want flowers for the house, rather than just putting them in a vase. Being home with a toddler all day, it's definitely nice to get out of the house and learn something new. I'm very glad that I went! Whole Foods is always having adult classes, so I'm sure I'll be going back in the future!
