Flowers are such a terrific accessory to make any home more beautiful whether you are staging it for selling, or decorating for living.
I wanted to let you know about a floral store and school that I just discovered in Surrey BC. With the guidance of a community leader, June Strandberg and her daughter Casey, Just Beginnings Flowers is helping ‘women with barriers’ get back into the workplace by teaching them the craft of flower arranging. They along with Margita’s Flowers in North Vancouver they are the Official florist of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver. That’s quite an accomplishment. The students will be making the bouquets and I’m sure feel very proud.
Just Beginnings Flowers is located in Surrey behind the Surrey Memorial Hospital. Check them out at www.justbeginningsflowers.com. Phone: 604 582 8298
We held our local monthly Pres members only meeting at Just Beginnings Flowers and June taught us some simple arrangements using artificial and real flowers. Love the idea of women supporting women!
