Summer Flowers Moon Canyon Style

Summer Flowers Moon Canyon Style

Naomi Yamada Moon Canyon Flower Class

I can't quite remember the first time I saw flowers by 'Moon Canyon Design' - I just know I became a quick fan.  Her wildflower rustic aesthetic really vibes with me.  Last Sunday, I spent the afternoon learning how to create some cool things the Moon Canyon way - we made a summer arrangement and a floral crown - sourced with local flowers of course.  Here's a snippit of my notes (I took plenty) and a photo of the finished product.  I also did this little story on my iPhone of the making process which Kristen/Moon Canyon made so fun.  I learned about placement, fairy flowers, the power of asymmetry and a little bit about sourcing and maintenance. Hopefully, I can re-create something pretty to have handy for photo shoots and dinner parties.  I cannot say enough about how sweet and talented Kristen is - she really gave it her all to make sure everyone was  enjoying themselves and getting fun results.  Also, thank you Poketo for hosting great workshops and Hillary from Just Say Native  for all your thoughtful help and encouragement.  I love learning and spending time just playing and trying something new ♡
