We continued our beloved annual tradition with our 5th Halloween Open House event! The kids all got goody bags filled with treats and got more candy as they made their way through the Market. The pumpkin decorating station was a hit! Selfies were taken with costumed characters. Most kids were wearing their own costumes too. Each family got to take home a free bunch of daisies. What a fun event!
Our Wine & Floral Design Series continues with our Wedding Centerpiece Design Class! Team member Krista led this class focused on the ever important Wedding Centerpiece. Whether you’re wanting an all floral type of centerpiece or a mix of floral/non-floral, stunning wedding centerpieces are one of the easiest ways to elevate your wedding reception. Krista is our wedding expert and has hundreds of ideas for wedding centerpieces from simple, to unique, to classic, to modern. This class taught the design techniques of a simple, yet elegant, DIY wedding centerpiece. Students could recreate this look for a Thanksgiving or Christmas table as well.

Our annual event, Petal it Forward Free Flower Giveaway broke records! It was the best attended one yet. This was our 5th year participating in this nationwide movement in the floral industry. Florist from almost every state participate every year. Petal it Forward is the floral industry’s take on “pay it forward.” The Market gave away 2 free bunches of daisies to everyone who came into the Market on 10.23. No purchase was necessary. We only asked that they keep one bunch & give the other bunch to someone who could use a pick me up. It could be a family member, co-worker, even a total stranger! We gave away 700 daisy bunches! This feel good event gets better every year. Local station FOX10 was on hand to report on the day’s festivities.
Nothing gets you into the Fall spirit quite like pumpkins. For many, fall is their favorite season. Well known local designer Brian Vetter, AAF, AzMF, AIFD, PCFI, walked the class through the design process of arranging in a real pumpkin! The quintessential fall favorite. As always, Brian shared his tips & tricks with the class and guided you through the design process step-by-step. He also showed them many clever variations of designs that they can try at home.
