Get Creative and Make New Friends at our Floral Workshops

As we shared in our first Core Values blog post, one of our most important values at Aleen Design is hospitality. We want to create a space where people can belong and feel like they’re at home. That’s why we are opening our studio doors a few times each month for floral workshops. 

If you haven’t joined us for a floral design workshop at our studio in Yorktown, you are missing out on an amazing time of creative expression, laughter and community. This is an experience where women from all backgrounds and walks of life are invited to come into a safe, welcoming space and express their creativity together.

Floral Workshops: Creating Something Beautiful, Together

In order to create an intimate setting, our floral workshops are capped at 15 registrants. The small group setting allows you to connect with the people around you, and maybe even discover a new friend across the table. It also ensures everyone can ask questions and receive one-on-one help from the instructor if they need it.

  • March 13 & 14: Going Green
    Green is the new black! Join us for this workshop, where we’ll be using a variety of foliages to create an on trend greenery arrangement, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. We’ll be creating this arrangement using sustainable methods that prioritize the environment and don’t utilize floral foam. To make sure we have a relaxing experience, we’ll be starting our workshop with a 20 minute chair yoga session. Certified yoga instructor Maureen Lamar will guide us through this relaxing practice to help loosen tight shoulder and neck muscles. 
  • April 9 & 10: Large Vessel Arrangement with Spring Blooms
    Come and create a beautiful large arrangement for your Easter table! At this workshop, you’ll learn how to style a large floral arrangement in a wide open vase, without the use of harmful foams. We’ll be using a variety of lovely spring florals, including tulips, veronica, roses, ornamental kale and more. Don’t miss this chance to create a gorgeous, vibrant arrangement perfect for your Easter festivities.
  • May 8 & 9: Mother’s Day Workshop
    We are so excited to treat all you wonderful moms with a special Mother’s Day workshop.  If you’re a mom looking to get away for the evening and enjoy a creative workshop with other women, join us on Friday, May 8th. If you want to create some memories alongside your daughter, join us Saturday, May 9, to create a special mother-daughter arrangement.
