Good Old Days Florist

Floral Design Private Wedding Classes


If you would like to try to make your (or a friends) wedding flowers; then this is for you….before you do.  In these workshops I will teach you what you need to know from buying your supplies to creation.   These are 1 on 1 and side by side teachings.

In Workshop #1 using assorted fernery and greens, flowers, and accessories you will learn how to make a proper bouquet, corsage,  and boutonnierre.   Designing a bouquet will also help you to define what style you are and like.   This class is invaluable for the creative Bride or those creating for her.

In Workshop #2 using seasonal flowers and fernery, we will create a standing arrangement and a table centerpeice to continue your decor for the ceremony and reception.    We will also tackle a large bow making 🙂 if you would like to decorate your aisles.  Class gift certificates make great engagement gifts-just a thought.



Wedding Classes 1 and 2

A wonderful opportunity to look inside the world of floral design-one on one, to share in my passion.   Flower arranging is an experience like no other; and one that I am passionate about sharing.  I really feel everyone should immerse themselves into the flower world.   It is one of the gentler arts that has been handed down for decades and always seen as a proud accomplishment.

Whether you ar just an enthusiast interested in creating bouquets for yourself, for an event, a Bride, or maybe toying with a career as a future professional.  

The classes are for all levels from the stark beginner to more advanced.  We will be working with all variety of flowers, capitalizing on seasonal and of course….local grown.  The garden flowers, wildflowers, and herbs are abundant in New England from May to November; and November to April we will use the crops of our temperate states.   My teaching style blends the must have-technical training of proper mechanics with vintage nature,  and a load of whimsy.     I  make sure the classes are as instructional as they are encouraging of free thinking. 

All classes are held at the store in the design room, and include all supplies.  You will finish and take home your beauties at each class which last app. 2-4 hrs. depending on your skill level.  

The private classes are available:

Daytime-4:00 Tues, Wed, Thurs.

Sat 2:00

Evening-limited but available

Please remember: 

All class requests are contingent on both yours and my schedule.

Sorry, no classes the week prior to any holiday-obviously 🙂

Please note: Unfortunately, florists never know what will be ordered on any given day, and there may arise a situation where I have to dedicate your class day and I must reschedule you.  I will do everything I can to avoid this but If this occurs, you will be notified the morning of and we can hold the class on the next available day.
