I am so excited to share my new business venture with Alice’s Table.

“Alice’s Table brings women together to learn new skills, and live a social and creative lifestyle. Our goal is to be the bright spot in the modern busy woman’s life – the thing she looks forward to at home and on the town. Modern women don’t have time to be Martha, they need lifestyle delivered.”

Here’s how it happened.  I was on Facebook one evening and saw something in my feed for Alice’s Table.  I wondered what it was so I started clicking through until I came to their events page and saw they were hosting a floral arranging class in my area and I registered.  When I started reading their site and blog I was intrigued.  I love flowers.  I love to arrange flowers.  I love pretty things.  I love meeting new people.  I love making people feel special.  I love being up in front of people and I love teaching people new things to make them feel empowered.  So, basically this checked all my boxes.

My friend Andrea and I took the class together

I asked my college friend Andrea to join me.  The host teaching the class led us step-by-step through the basics of taking flowers you would find at the grocery store and transforming them into works of art you’d see in a florist shop.   Did you know hydrangeas drink from their stem and from their flower clusters?  To prolong the life of the hydrangea spray them everyday with a water mister!  I never knew this.

It was fun to visit with Andrea while we created and sipped wine, all the while I was observing what it would like for me to be the person leading the class.  What I did observe were the smiling faces of women who were genuinely proud of themselves for creating something lovely that they could take home to enjoy!  I went right home and scheduled an information call with their headquarters.  It was a delight to speak with Brooke and they invited me to join their team.

This is my centerpiece I created at the class!

So, what is it?  Have you ever looked at a photo in a magazine or on Pinterest and thought the floral arrangement was beautiful but you didn’t feel you possessed the skills to create it on your own?  Well, I will be teaching you how to design beautiful bouquets in a snap!  Each guest will craft an exquisite arrangement that they will take home or give as a gift.

How can I schedule a class?  There are all sorts of ways  — want to bring all your friends together to host a wedding shower, birthday party, girls night out, or women’s group we can do a private class.  Have a company that has a budget for team building and appreciation, I can do corporate classes.  Own a venue, boutique, or restaurant and want to invite 10-20 women on a slower night of the week to show off your space, food or boutique we can do that, too.   Planning a wedding, we can bring all your friends together to create centerpieces for your wedding day event!  If you are a blogger, we can arrange for you to attend a class so you can share the content with your readers!  The ideas are limitless.

The best part is that my company does everything.  We collect payment through our website, I bring all the supplies and high quality fresh flowers and we promote your company and the class on social media.  For about two hours guests can enjoy a cocktail or iced tea while they get lost in the atmosphere of flowers!  And maybe enjoy a bite to eat or a little shopping afterward.

My flowers from the class six days later!
