We asked Deanna a few questions about the workshop and floral arranging in September!
Quirk Gallery: What will be the style for this floral arranging workshop?
Deanna King: Loose, airy, gardenesque, picked from the field.
Where does Strawberry Fields source their flowers? (We are so excited to use locally sourced flowers and greenery for the workshop!)
We source our flowers from several local flower flowers including Wind Haven Farm in Topping, VA, Prospect Hill Farm in Bumpass, VA, Essex Farm in Tappahannock, VA and Burst and Bloom in Powhatan, VA.
Can you give us a few tips for floral arranging at home?
1. Always keep your vase and water clean; the flowers will last so much longer if you change the water every few days, clean the vase, and re-cut your stems.
2. Keep your flowers in a cool place, not near a heater or the direct sun.
3. Criss cross your stems while arranging to keep your flowers in place.
