Blue Bouquet was featured in Flower Magazine! Here is my favorite quote from the interview...
Blue Bouquet's Answer : Just do it. No need to educate yourself first, though you might want to read online just a bit about how to cut and prep your flowers. Usually, I’d advise starting with something simple—maybe just a single, smaller vase and a single type of bloom. We’re coming up on peony season, and that would be a great place to start. Always think about what you are doing. Look at the arrangement as you go, and try hard to think about what is working and what isn’t. That’s how you’ll learn. There are lots of great books on floral design, and they can be helpful, but they’ll never replace what you can learn by just jumping in there and making something."
