Giving flowers can send many messages, such as "congratulations," "I love you," and "I just bought new hedge trimmers." Compose a fragrantly meaningful message with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a three-hour flower-arranging class at Dogwood Floral Design in Melrose (a $100 value).
Owner Theresa Arsenault and the petal-pushers at Dogwood Floral Design teach the art of building a beauteous bouquet. With no more than eight students per class, this small informal workshop explores how to artfully arrange a few hand-selected seasonal blooms. Pupils will play with color palettes and learn to layer textures, as well as discuss which blossom looks best on a trick squirting boutonnière. The price of tuition covers floral shears and a take-home vase or container for each colorful creation, as well as light refreshments to be enjoyed at the session's end.
Winner of WeddingWire's Bride's Choice Awards 2009–2011, Dogwood Floral Design's studio provides a comfortable venue for brides-to-be to acquaint themselves with which buds they'd like to take along to their ceremony. This class is also a fine fit for mothers and daughters seeking some special time together, or girls' night out groups bored of BASE-jumping from the roofs of day spas.
