Flower Power: Learn How To Make Your Own Floral Arrangements

 Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

2014-02-08 17.45.39I know I‘m not alone in my love of beautifully arranged flowers both in nature and elsewhere. I learned about Flower Duet, a pair of floral designing sisters named Casey and Kit, bases in Los Angeles. For the record they run a full service event and wedding design studio and also teach workshops. They creased a floral design dvd for those who could not attend their LA workshops.

The easy-to-follow instructional series is perfect for beginners and will give you the confidence to be creative with flowers available daily at your local grocery or farmers' market.

I think of this as a life-saver for brides on a budget who want to create their own wedding flowers . It also provides a solution for what to do with those flowers you can buy at the grocery store - but don't know how to make them look "cool."

I was inspired to work with daises, but my goal was to properly prep, clean and condition them so they would last longer than my store bought arrangements usually do and Casey and Kit provided those very important tips too.

In under 30 minute you see a lot. What this flower arranging how-to DVD includes:

First, the sister team of Flower Duet, Casey and Kit, take you on location to their favorite wholesale flower vendor and show you how to choose only the freshest flowers – just like they do for all their clients in person!

Then, it’s back to the design studio where they show you how professional florists prepare flowers to optimize their vase life.

In addition to tips on color and flower choice, they teach the easiest and most adaptable way to create a hand-tied European wrap bouquet using three different sets of flowers.

I would love to learn how to arrange flowers! My favorites are tulips. My hubby and I grew our own for our wedding.

I so need help with this...I'm the worst at arranging flowers! I would say one of my favorite flowers are runaculus. Stopping by from SITS Girls ~Krissa (http://www.morethanmundane.com)

I could definitely use the help because my expertise involves buying flowers on a whim at the grocery store and coming home to put them in a vase of *regular* tap water! Pretty sure that's all kinds of wrong. LOL #SITSBlogging

I love flowers and arranging them, but have found the last few times I have received flowers that I am TOO allergic to be able to enjoy them...sad!

This looks like a fun lesson - I really love the first photo with the tall stems!
