Floral Kids Camp: Fresh and Pressed Floral Bouquets
July 19, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$150.00
Here are Sweetwater, we LOVE kids! Children who come in and select their own flowers from the bouquet bar are celebrities for our team.
This day is all about BOUQUETS! We will help your children learn how to go from selecting beautiful flowers, to pairing flowers and greens that go well together, and learning the technique to make a beautiful hand tie bouquet. After a fun lunch, participants will have the opportunity to learn how to press flowers over time or in the microwave. They will then use pre-pressed flowers to design a beautiful pressed bouquet of lasting flower art to place in a frame to take home.

Pressed Flower bouquets in a Frame: Abigail Leger’s love for beauty and creating started at a young age as her mother sewed, and planned community events for children and adults. She majored in Education and minored in Studio Art at Taylor University with training in watercolor, drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, acrylic, and cooking. Colorful things are her love language. One of her mottoes is “Everything is better when shared.” In high school, she worked at a specialty toy store for 3 years hosting birthday parties for children ages 3-11 years old, and in college she designed and lead 6 week day camp for 60 children.
Hand Tie Bouquets: Nina Jalenak hails from the amazing state of Louisiana! She moved to Colorado after graduating from LSU with a degree in Art. She enjoys making and selling art around Colorado Springs, Skiing, and learning new skills as a florist. As a camp counselor for many years, Nina enjoyed teaching kids of all ages how to make beautiful things. She is excited to combine her love for kids of all ages, flowers, and teaching in order to make floral design accessible to the Colorado Springs community.
