Early Spring Bouquets


Ponderosa Master Class


March 19, 2020


Hello Friend! 

Did you Know?  March 19th is the first day of Spring! 

When I was a little girl, I liked to investigate the garden beds surrounding our house. Pressing the earth between my fingers and smelling the damp cool of the ground, watching and waiting for the bright green tips of the earliest flowers to start pushing their way out of the garden beds, nature was my escape.

As soon as the flowers were above-ground, I would gather handfuls of hyacinth, daffodils and blossoms off the plum trees, and turn them into flower "soup" or tiny bouquets for faeries. My pockets were always filled with flower confetti after I'd been adventuring all day.

I never dreamed that this exploration, and deep fascination of plant combinations would eventually lead me to discover my voice as an artist, but it absolutely did!

For me, this season is magic, the air is alive with possibility, anything feels possible.

To celebrate the first day of Spring, and this coming season of inspiration, I invite you to attend my Early Spring Flowers bridal bouquet class, March 19th in the Ponderosa Classroom! A light filled day, full of hope and joy and lots and lots of flower confetti!! 

Come explore your childlike wonder. Springtime is time to play!

I'm excited to meet everyone who comes! See you soon! 

Xx Katie Davis

P.S. This class is open to learners of all levels in floristry, and limited to 8 Students. I hope to see you there!

Come celebrate the first day of Spring with Katie and your new flower friends in the cozy, light filled Ponderosa Classroom for a day of meditation, conversation and flower making while we explore the fairy-tale magic of earliest Springtime in the Pacific Northwest.

During this full day course, we will explore using all the yummiest early spring flowers (Hellebore, Narcissus, and blossoms oh my!) to create the most drop dead gorgeous, Springtime bridal bouquets! 

We'll meet in the morning and begin with a flower meditation, taking time to reflect on this wonderful new season, and prepare our minds and hearts to enter Spring with renewed focus and joy. Katie will demonstrate and teach how to make a glorious Springtime bridal bouquet, and then you'll create your own, with Katie available to assist! When you are finished with your bouquet, Katie will teach you how to document and photograph your work, and at the end of the day we will enjoy a wonderful meal together at one of our favorite local restaurants.
