At Lake Forest Flowers, floral design is both a passion and an art. The gift of a one-on-one private class for a friend – or for you, a ‘ladies night out’ event, or hands-on garden club program offers a wonderful opportunity to learn about floral design. Participants will work with an array of fresh seasonal flowers and other fresh & hard materials imported from around the world, discovering how to create one-of-a-kind designs. It is Lake Forest Flowers’ pleasure to share with you or your guests or members, some of the secrets to making flowers look exceptional, and explore the artistry of design.
