Painted Wooden Centerpiece Reviews

Not enough information regarding composition, colour, types of flowers or greenery may or may not go together. The instructors were very uncharismatic and low energy. Also, this class seems to be suitable only for those people who have access to a lot of materials (for those who own a flower shop), no indication of how much material one should buy for a small, mid-size or large vase. There is potential for waste if you buy too much or frustration if you buy too little. No information on how long arrangement will last, no info that I heard about how to make the arrangement last longer except for adding water, cleaning and trimming.
This project tweaked my memory of making arrangements when I was younger. I forgot how much fun it was! Watching the cleaning & combining of greenery and flowers into a vase, and learning how to position the pieces, what to watch for, how to add the color, and make a nice shape was expertly done and makes me want to make an arrangement!
