Join Terri Schuett from Happy Vine Flowers and Kate Watters from Agave Maria Botanicals for a fun and inspiration day surrounded by a world of floral abundance and creativity at Orchard Canyon on Oak Creek, a lush oasis in Sedona, Arizona.

Growing and arranging your own fresh garden flowers is poetry for your soul! When you create a fresh, fragrant, beautiful bouquet from garden flowers, you are giving a wonderful gift to yourselves and others. We will begin our journey from field to vase the garden, learning how to select ingredients to provide an array of textures, aromas, colors and personalities for a natural flower arrangement. We will share the know-how about to make your garden grow, even if you have limited space. After a delicious garden-inspired lunch, the afternoon session will guide you through the elements of floral design as you make your own. We will discuss how to choose the right shapes to compliment your flowers and the arrangement’s setting.

Join us for a full day of all the flowers your heart could desire, garden magic, laughter, education, new friends, and fun!! Immerse yourself in this aesthetic journey into flower growing and artistic botanical design that will open a whole new relationship with yourself, your garden and flowers.
