1-800-FLOWERS.COM and I recently hosted a DIY Holiday Flower Tree Workshop for some of our friends and fellow bloggers! I am so proud to be a part of this amazing community of women. The workshop was low key and intimate, which gave us all a chance to get to know each other and catch up, in a very creative and relaxing environment. Basic instructions for making a Holiday Flower Tree were provided, but each participant was encouraged to then take the instructions and run with them. Once you know how to make the base of the tree, you can make it any size, use any waterproof container, and add flowers and decorations of your choice. In the end, the finished trees were as unique as their creators.

Here are some photos from the workshop as well as the basic step by step instructions if you would like to give the Holiday Flowers Tree a try! If you do, I’d love to hear how it went and see some photos. I too created a few versions of my own that might give you a few ideas. I’ll be posting those photos shortly.

Thanks to my friends Tracy and Vilma: Ascending Butterfly – Katia: Skimbaco Lifestyle – Lisa: New York Chica – Nikki: Blasian Baby Notes for your continued enthusiasm and support. It was fun!
