Flower arranging was one of my favorite classes at the Better Homes & Gardens Style Maker workshop I attended last month. It was led by Matthew Robbins, a talented floral designer and BH&G contributing stylist. He taught us how to layer our arrangements with different textures, but also reminded me that kale can be a beautiful addition to even the simplest grocery store bouquet. (Well, it did help that FTD supplied us with a lot of beautiful flowers to work with—but kale would be a great way to fluff up less expensive flowers or even blooms from your yard).
They displayed our creations at the party later that night. (You know, the one where I “met” Brooke.) The above bouquet was designed by my friend Beth. Alright, go put some kale on your grocery list. :)
