Floral Design with Juliska

Floral arranging... a skill I wish I had. I'm working on it! I recently took a class at Juliska with florist Jakkelyn Iris hosted by bloggers Julia Dzafic and Meg Hall. I left with this beautiful arrangements and some great tips.
Jakkelyn pointed out that the vase we were working with, Juliska's Ines Vase, is an ideal size and shape for versatility.  I have so many ginger jars and vases around my apartment but often feel like I never have the right size for whatever flowers I'm working with. I think this one will be put to great use. She recommended the same vase for 2 bunches of tulips, which you will now easily find for a great price because they are in season.

We had gorgeous greens and blooms to choose from. We started off with greens and the protea (the large tropical pink flower) and from there added the other flowers, varying the height and positioning. We were encouraged to buy greens and flowers separately instead of a pre-made bouquet the next time we are picking up flowers.

If you are in Fairfield County, I highly recommend one of the classes at Juliska in Stamford with a friend! If you don't live here but find yourself traveling through the Northeast, the boutique is just off I95 (exit 8) and has a cafe inside. My kind of coffee break!
