Flower Arranging Workshop
Come learn and make your own flower arrangements with Caroline, owner of Floralia.
Did you know that floral arrangement is a meditative and highly satisfying ‘crafting’ activity which requires no prior skills or knowledge, and can be enjoyed with people you love? It’s a great way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon in a cosy and bright environment.
We currently have two classes:
Table centrepiece: This class is suited for everyone, all levels of experience in arranging flowers. It’s a great way to immerse yourself in arranging flowers with a more organic style. There is lots of choice. I really just want everyone to have fun and have learned a couple new things. Everyone goes home with something unique.
Vase is included.
Class duration: approx. 3 hours.
Hand-tied bouquets: Hand-tied bouquets is for people with some experience or are already somewhat crafty. You will learn to build an arrangement in your hands, so we will be concentrating on that technique more than developing your style. However once you are comfortable with this skill, it will be easy to develop the style on your own.
Vase is not included.
Class duration: approx. 2 hours.
Places are limited.
Demo on how to style flowers
Instructions on how to take care of your blooms
Personalized tips and guidance while you create your own floral piece
A glass of wine and some refreshments
At the end of the class you will take home a little better understanding on arranging flowers as well as your own unique creation.
Please email if you would like to book a private workshop (min. 5 participants)
Location: FAUNA - 5338 Boulevard Saint Laurent, H2T 1S1.

In my view, flowers are a passing pleasure that uplifts the heart; it’s no wonder that artists have been admiring them for centuries. When I work with flowers, my intention is to create the mood and visuals of a timeless memory, even if the moment only lasts for one day.
Growing up in Germany, my fondest memories were with my grandmother in her ‘secret garden’. She was the first person who inspired me to pick flowers from her garden and decorate the kitchen table with them. Since then, it has become a passion of mine.
I created the business Floralia by joining all my favourite things together; my background in visual arts, and my experience working on organic farms.
It’s a pleasure for me to get to know my clients; my goal is to create personalized designs that truly mirror what they are looking for in essence and to create a look that is uniquely theirs.
Loyal to the earth, Floralia respects the land by choosing organic, sustainable methods of cultivation that preserve and encourage the health of the soil, the plants, and the ecosystem. For us it’s also about respecting the people who work on the land, by promoting agriculture that does not expose growers to pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Locally grown organic flowers are the ultimate eco-friendly way to enjoy your bouquets.
During rare periods when flower production at our farm is less abundant, and to offer flowers during the off-season, Floralia also buys flowers from other farmers. Buying local is our priority. When this is not available, we purchase from certified ‘’Fair Trade’’ farms and pesticide-free greenhouses, or we seek to buy flowers produced in countries that maintain standards regarding pesticide use and workers rights. This is an ethical choice- we do this to ensure our flowers come from socially and environmentally credible farms.
