Flower Happy Hour

floral arrangements

Join Lisa Weddel, co-owner of DIY Designs Inspired by You, for a new kind of monthly happy hour! Each session features a different design style and technique, and each participant takes home an impressive, one-of-a-kind arrangement. Grab your friends, grab a beverage, and learn how to design a stunning floral arrangement built around seasonal blooms!

All floral supplies are provided and bloom selection changes seasonally. BYOB wine and beer are permitted. Please be sure to bring valid ID if consuming alcohol.

In 2024, we will be focusing on Color Theory. Each month will feature a different arrangement designed to highlight various concepts within color theory. The concepts to be covered and a full schedule are listed below:


Achromatic - Color harmonies that are devoid of color. They include any combination of white, black and gray.

Analogous - Combines any three hues side by side on the color wheel.

Complimentary - Contrasting hues located directly across from each other on the color wheel.

Monochromatic - Color harmony features only one hue but may include multiple tints.

Polychromatic - A discordant color scheme that combines many colors without concern for their relationship on the color wheel.

Primary - A group of colors from which all other colors can be obtained by mixing - red, yellow and blue.

Split Complimentary - Combines three hues: a selected hue on one side of the color wheel and the two hues adjacent to its direct compliment.
