found: bloom florist collective

This past Tuesday I attended a BYOC (Bring Your Own Container) class sponsored by Bloom Florist Collective and hosted at Pot & Box's cozy event space here in Ann Arbor. The Collective was created to "educate and inspire," and is made up of four independent florists: Susan of Passionflower, Holly of Sweet Pea, Tracy of Red Poppy, and Lisa of Pot & Box. Read more about the Collective here.

I decided to bring a bright yellow vintage teapot I found at an antique mall several years ago. At my previous house, the teapot graced the open shelving in my kitchen but, when we moved, I couldn't find a place for it. Sadly, it has been living hidden in my dining room sideboard, which isn't a bad home if you love midcentury modern.

Thanks to the experience and wisdom of our instructor Tracy, of Red Poppy Floral Design, I brought this home:


  1. Thanks Amanda - it still looks gorgeous! It was so nice to meet you, and thanks so much for the kind feedback - hope to see you again soon! Tracy :)

    Tracy is a pleasant talented "teacher" !!
