Team Building DIY Workshop with GUIDE, Inc.

I had the pleasure of spending this morning with a great group of people from Gwinnette United in Drug Education (GUIDE, Inc.).  GUIDE, Inc. is a Gwinnett County driven initiative for change in alcohol, tobacco and drugs, focusing primarily on youth substance abuse prevention.

They had a team-building DIY Workshop at Flower Bar, and we all had so much fun!  These lovely ladies worked well with, and around, each other, as I decided last minute to hold the class inside the shop-- we usually do it in the outdoor veranda room, but it was too hot!

It's always fun for me to do a "free style" class, because I get to see each personality come through in their creation.  Occasionally, I'll be bold enough to read a personality out loud, and I'm usually right. :-)  Today's group included "the exotic and unusual one who's not afraid to be different" and "the woman who could decorate her house at Target, but it would look like she shopped at Crate & Barrel" and "the big in generous and big in confidence personality, who is a great leader."

Here are a few more photos of this group creating their masterpieces...

August DIY Workshop Recap

Last night was a ton of fun, and I want to thank all of our DIY Workshop participants for coming!  Our August DIY workshop was "freestyle".  Everyone got to pick which flowers they wanted to use, and it's always fascinating to me to see each individual's personality come out in their creations!  Here are a few photos from our event. 

Caveat-- I am the worst event photographer ever, every photo is somewhat blurry, but it's almost so ridiculous I had to post anyway...

My guests enjoyed some lite bites along with a few sips of champagne provided and whatever refreshments they brought themselves, which included some tasty looking sangria!  We used clear glass cube vases that were lined with ti leaf. After demonstrating a few tips on mechanics, it was then up to them how they wanted to complete their arrangements (with a little coaching here and there).

Everyone did something very different.  Take a look at each of their masterpieces!


Flower Bar offers DIY Floral Workshops at least once per month.  We will add events closer to the holidays as well, so you can make your own holiday centerpieces, Valentine's, Easter and Mother's Day bouquets.  Check our website at for updated schedules.
RSVP required to participate.
