There’s something about spring time that gets everyone in a crafty mood. Maybe it’s the idea of creating something new for your home, or simply getting creative and trying something new. If there’s one thing that can brighten anyone’s day this time of year, it’s fresh flowers! Rather than having a bouquet delivered, why not create your own… yourself! We’re loving the idea of DIY flower arranging classes for a weekend afternoon date with your beau, a rainy day activity with your kids, or an evening out with a group of friends. We’re hand picked these fresh flower arranging classes to get you in the spring spirit!

For A Girls’ Night Out

The New York Botanical Garden’s Adult Education series hosts a wide variety of flower arranging courses, but the one that really stood out to us is the Girls’ Night Out Spring Wildflowers class! It’s the perfect way to celebrate spring with your favorite gals: friends, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, or (hint hint), this would make an excellent Mother’s Day activity for you and your mom!

The way the Botanical Garden puts it… One part class, and one part party! The class includes wine, hors d’oeuvres, and music – all while crafting your very own professional bouquet out of spring blooms.

For Learning the Art of Japanese Flower Arranging

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement, and Resobox teaches a class in this every Saturday in Long Island City. Along with creating beautiful bouquets, you will learn the history behind this art. You”ll be working with the flowers in a “free style” manner, which infuses your own personality and taste into creating a unique finished product. For our newbie flower arrangers out there, this class is a perfect blend of instruction and education on Japanese culture with flower arrangements. Mix your free style and inspiration!

Price: $20 + cost of materials onsite (generally an extra $10)

For Small Classes

While the rest of the classes on our list are a bit larger (ranging from 12 to 20 people), the Fresh Flower Arrangement class at Miu Flower School in Soho is capped at only 3 people – meaning you’ll get plenty of one-on-one direction from your instructor!  This class will teach the basics of arranging a table arrangement using a variety of blooms, and if you’re interested in becoming a certified flower specialist, you will also earn a credit towards your certificate! Trial lessons are also available for preserved flower arrangement classes.

Price: $200

Location: 145 Avenue of the Americas 7th Fl
At Dominick St

For Crafting Flower Crowns

If the traditional bouquet isn’t your thing, how about a fresh flower crown?! They make the perfect accessory for spring and summer, and you’ll learn how to make them at this Brooklyn Brainery class. You’ll learn how to construct a solid base, securely add the in-season blooms, and voila! You have a perfect crown ready to wear to an upcoming music festival or to decorate your spring table! Plus, we absolutely love the Brooklyn Brainery because they tap into the talent of their local community, and find experts to lead these classes, so cool!

For Peony Lovers

If there’s a flower arranging class that was meant for me, it’s one with peonies! Avid gardener or not, a lot of people have a few specific types of flowers that are their go-to. From creating a centerpiece for your dining room table, or designing a pot for your outdoor balcony garden, peonies are a great choice to add color to your space.

The Flower School in Chelsea is holding their Open Studio Featuring Peonies this spring, which allows you to create a beautiful, seasonal arrangement while learning some tips and tricks of floral design. Their classes each have a specific design focus, such as hand tied bouquets or low compact centerpieces, so you’ll walk away having mastered a specific skill!

Price: $150

Location: 213 W 14th St Ground Fl
Between 7th & 8th Ave
New York, New York 10011
