What You'll Get
Arranging a beautiful floral display requires an eye for design and the patience to mediate age-old turf disputes between he-loves-me and he-loves-me-not petals. Forge a lasting peace with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a floral-design class and a take-home arrangement at The Beach Flower in Dana Point (an $80 value).
The Beach Flower's petal pruners specialize in floral arrangements for homes, weddings, and corporate events; they also instruct aspiring greens keepers in the art of bouquet creation. Bring a gaggle of girlfriends, a bushel of boyfriends, or a botanically inclined bobsled team to this 90-minute class. Small groups will snack on light hors d'oeuvres and beverages as floret fanatics teach the basics of flower health and arranging. After the class, artists can take home their creations to decorate their boudoir or add an aromatic pop to exhaust pipes. Classes include all flowers, foliage, and ancillary materials to craft a delicate centerpiece. Flowers greet shears with the bravery of croissants destined for Napoleon's breakfast nook on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 5 p.m., and Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
