The Flower Chef

-







One of the things I wanted to accomplish on my 20 By 20 list was to take a class just for fun. At UCLA, I'm taking of really interesting, challenging, and intense classes. Sometimes it's nice to learn a new thing just for the fun of it. If you follow me on snapchat (which you totally should!) you might remember a few weeks ago when my mom and I took a floral arranging class at Fleurish. It was so much fun and I would definitely recommend going there for a super fun, unique, and creative afternoon! During that class, I realized what an art form floral arranging really is. My mom used to be a florist, so her arrangement turned out beautifully. Mine on the other hand, was not quite as expertly done! I definitely needed a little help from the professionals... :)

When Carly sent me her new book, The Flower Chef, the timing couldn't have been more perfect! I had just taken that floral arranging class and wanted to improve! Her book basically has "recipes" for different arrangements. I love to bake, so this concept of following an exact recipe made so much sense to me! The "ingredients" are the different flowers you'll need, and she gives detailed, step by step instructions to create the arrangement.

I gave it a try, and have to say, I improved a lot! The arrangement was so fun to create, brightened up my dorm, and added a little more sunshine to my day!
