Crystal Joy of The Joy of Floral helped attendees tap into their inner “artist” and get creative during Fun with Flowers: Joyful Bouquets May 12.

She demonstrated how to make floral arrangements from beginning to end by choosing two or three core flowers, adding filler flowers to enhance the core flowers, then assembling the arrangement in a container of your own choosing. Joy shared practical ways to create a bouquet on your own with materials you might already own at home or that can be found in nature.

Joy is the owner and master floral designer at The Joy of Floral. Flowers have always made her happy. You could say they bring her “joy”! Her business creates beautiful floral designs or helps clients create their own bouquets.

Fun with Flowers is an educational outreach program that is open to the public. Founded by the Garden Club of Jacksonville more than 30 years ago, Fun With Flowers has served as a model for similar programs offered throughout the United States. Attendees learn the latest professional design techniques, then create breathtaking floral creations during the hands-on portion of the program.
