Flowers are our planet's way of reassuring people and animals that no matter how many winters the earth endures, it still has the virility to grow its own hair. Comb the planet's beautiful floral tresses with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a floral-design class that includes a container and instructions for creating a finished arrangement at Grafe Studio (a $35 value).
Grafe Studio's efflorescence features flowers and greenery for all occasions, radiating a kaleidoscope of sense-pleasing scents and colors that owners Dennis and Betsy Grafe can help budding floral artists sculpt into pupil-pleasing arrangements. With blossoms flown in from South America, Italy, Australia, the Netherlands, and regional bloom harvesters, the staff of well-trained floral designers is on hand to advise do-it-yourselfers assembling their own arrangements. Dennis and Betsy offer a schedule of varied Monday-night floral-design classes from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The experienced florists provision up to 20 attendees with the necessary adornments to fashion hand-tied bouquets, extra-tall centerpieces, St. Patrick’s−themed blooms, or artfully arranged lilies to dress up mantels or the insides of trained alligators' maws.
