Oktoberfest with FlowersOctober 14, 2015
Last night we had an amazing Oktoberfest celebration at Jacob Wirth in Boston! Oktoberfest is the world's largest beer festival, and we kicked off the night with an array of Sam Adams brews. Jacob Wirth provided German staples including soft pretzels, sauerkraut, sausages, and potato pancakes. We were so appreciative to have been able to celebrate Oktoberfest with such an incredible host. Thank you Jacob Wirth!
We created an arrangement around sunflowers from Siena Farms. Siena Farms is a local farm just outside of Boston offering excellent produce to restaurants and homes in the greater Boston area. If you haven't experienced their farm share, you need to! The sunflowers were the star of the show!
Below is the flower recipe from last night. For the cocktail recipe, check out tomorrows post on the Blue Haired Lady we created!
- 4 Sunflowers
- 3 Dianthus
- 2 Hypericum Berry
- 1 Cabbage
- Start with one sunflower and work your way outwards.
- Add in the cabbage and adjust the leaves for a more pronounced look.
- Add in accent stems of dianthus and hypericum berry.
- Join us at our next event for a detailed lesson on flower arranging!
