adventures in flower school

August 3, 2010

I recently attended a Little Flower School class at Saipua hosted by Nicolette Owens of Nicolette Camille and Sarah Ryhanen of Saipua.  I have always been a huge admirer of Saipua and the style of flower design they and Nicolette Camille practice so when I heard about this flower school I was excited to try my hand at it.  It was specifically a Peony class and truly it is hard to make anything other than beautiful with such an amazing flower.  I had no idea though how many different varieties there were to love!  My favorite are still the soft pink full feathery ones but a new one is the coral variety with bright golden yellow centers.  The colors went from barely there pink to a deep red and all the shades in between.  We also learned about the other flowers and leafy greens that complement such a feminine flower including eucalyptus, nigella, hellebores and this amazing small spider web like flower that I have forgotten the name of.  When I took them home they didn’t last too long but while they stuck around they definitely made the days feel special. 

Check out for more pictures and information on classes.  A big thank you to a Little Flower School.
