Happy Thanksgiving!

Hap­py Thanksgiving!

Each year, Flower Duet teach­es numer­ous flower arrang­ing class­es in Los Ange­les that are focused on hol­i­day enter­tain­ing. Here are a few ideas that we share with our stu­dents that you can use, too!

Suc­cu­lent pump­kins where you do not hol­low out the pump­kin, but instead glue suc­cu­lents to a top of moss, last from the begin­ning of Octo­ber through Thanks­giv­ing week­end. We cre­at­ed a how-to arti­cle last year so next year, you can cre­ate your own! You can even cre­ate mini ver­sions, too!

Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Last week­end, we had a flo­ral design class at our flo­ral design stu­dio in Tor­rance and each one of our atten­dees made a design like the one below. These will last for over a week! Per­fect for a Thanks­giv­ing centerpiece.
