Everybody loves flowers; we all know that for a fact. Yes, puppies are cute, but nothing is as sensational a feeling as when you sniff a flower from a place you've never been to. And just to say, sniffing puppies isn't really the most fun thing ever—well, nothing compared to flowers at least. Flowers can be expensive, but you’ll save a lot through these classes with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a flower-arranging class at Chicago School of Flower Design (a $200 value).
The Chicago School of Flower Design is going to teach a class about putting together tulips, roses, tropical flowers, gerbera daises, and lots of other flowers to make beautiful arrangements. The flowers fly in from places such as Colombia, Hawaii, Holland, and Israel and parachute down, landing at the Chicago School of Flower Design. Arrangements will feature summer colors such as yellow, mango, red, pink, purple, and white; the flowers bring thoughts of summer from around the world. In each 2- to 2.5-hour class, students will have all of the tools and flowers they need to make arrangements for sick friends, weddings, or for their girlfriends' birthdays.
Students will leave with about $200 worth of beautifully designed flowers and the expert knowledge to not mistake any tropical flowers for cacti. The class schedule can be seen here.
