There seems to be no end to the creative output of Nicolette Owen and Sarah Ryhanen; the duo behind the Little Flower School is a particular favorite of ours after having worked with them before. Now, just as visitors to the Garden are admiring spring’s blooming peonies, Nicolette offers a brief how-to on getting the most from your peony arrangements at home. —MN
Sarah and Nicolette, the floral virtuosi behind the Little Flower School and popular NYBG instructors, are featured in the February issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. But that’s not all. As an added bonus, Martha Stewart’s At Home in the Garden blog did a Q&A with some of the students featured in the spread (who just happen to be some of our very favorite bloggers!). Check out the beautiful floral arrangements that these ladies were able to create after just one class, and you’ll probably feel inspired too.
So, I guess it’s a very good thing that we have a class in Manhattan coming up with these very talented ladies! On February 21 at our Midtown Center, Sarah and Nicolette will be teaching a class all about one of the most beautiful, alluring, dare I say … Victorian, of winter flowers, the anemone. The class will teach basic floral arranging techniques culminating in an opulent display to take home that may also include dainty ranunculus, daring amaryllis, and cheery citrus. Sign-up soon though. Space is limited, and going fast. I think you can see why! ~AR
Another dispatch from the floral design wilds of Brooklyn! Inspired? There are still some spots left in our classes with the ladies from the Little Flower School!
