This Fall at Quinn’s elementary school there was a contest and kids could enter all kinds of forms of art from poems, dances, photography, drawings and paintings- you name it, it was enterable.
Of course my mini me decided she was going to do a flower arrangement and I was not so secretly thrilled by her decided upon entry manner. So I ordered her flowers and when the day arrived for her to create this masterpiece, I was a mixed bag.
The mom in me was cheering her on, letting her do her own thing while the florist in me was biting my lip and shoving my hands in my pockets because this was her original art and I was not allowed to mess with it.
I have to say, I think she did really great for a 5 year old! And mom definitely gave her a couple of pointers but I cut the stems and she placed and arranged every stinkin’ last one of them, y’all.
I might even hire her someday!
Sadly, I don’t think the judges see the value in this art form YET… but we’re going to slowly work them down because fresh flower arranging is an art.
