Harmon’s Floral Company
, located on Congress Street, is the only florist in the downtown district that sells a tremendous selection of fresh flowers. In this behind the scenes tour, we were given a preview of the Flower Happy Hour and the process of flower arrangement.
The Flower Happy Hour is a weekly class held on Wednesdays. Jennifer Miller, the instructor, teaches attendees how to arrange flowers based on color, width & texture, and weight. Jennifer demonstrated the full process; beginning with the trendiest greenery, to describing the occasion the arrangement is made for.
The class often holds from 8-12 people with a party-like atmosphere, that includes refreshments, wine, and music! Jennifer said that Harmon’s Floral is a great flower shop because they have been in business for a long time and have access to a stupendous variety of flowers. They can get any flower you want based on the order.
