Event Overview

Dabblers, it's Summer! Let's celebrate with flowers. Join me for a Floral 101 class, where we'll focus on the basics of making everyday foral designs. You will walk away with your own unique arrangement to enjoy all week long, and a whole new skillset to make your own designs week after week.

At this workshop, you will learn everything you need to know to pick out, care for, and arrange cut flowers to create eye-catching designs for your home.


I'll bring a mix of flowers, greens and medium glass vases to choose from. We'll start with a lesson on how to think about different types of materials when you are designing, then design principles like color and shape and how they apply to florals, and show you a short demo. I'll also cover current trends like incorporating dried materials, creating a loose, natural aesthetic, and foraging. 


In the second half of the class you'll get to work on your own design to take home. During this hands-on time I'll work with you one-on-one to make sure you create something you love.


Invite your bestie, your mom, a date, or your coworkers! This is a fun workshop for anyone who wants to get started bringing more flowers into their everyday life.

    My brother and I took my mom to the spring floral class for mother’s day and the three of us had the best time creating with Leelee. She was knowledgeable and taught us some tips that we can use to continue creating beautiful floral arrangements at home. She gave each person in the class the attention they asked for to learn and create. This was our second class with Leelee, and we’ll be back for more!

    LeeLee was great! The space was awesome and the flower selection was beautiful. My friend and I had a great time chatting with the other students while we sipped our wine and learned some VERY helpful tips/tricks. I've officially graduated to a more adult version of flower arranging and will be back for another event!

    The flower class was held at an adorable shop in Logan Square. It was perfectly sized, with 6 people, which gave the instructor lots of time for one on one help. The class was a great intro to flowers and being able to create your own arrangements. It was scheduled for two hours, however the actually class was about an hour to an hour and a half. It was a bit pricey for the amount of time/materials, but overall a fun time!

    I had so much fun in Leelee's class! There were tons of different types of flowers to choose from and everyone could design an arrangement to their own taste rather than having one set arrangement everyone made. Leelee was able to give a lot of personal attention and offered as much or as little input as we liked on our arrangement. Shop 1021 is adorable and was such a cozy setting for the class!

    This was so much fun! The event was held in a super chic loft space and there were about 12 women in total - I love girl time. Leelee was awesome, first running us through the basics of flowers and bouquet design, then giving us freedom to create on our own. She had roses, tulips, tons of greens, dried flowers, flowers of every color- anything we could need or want in our own arrangement! She was very encouraging and helpful. I would definitely take a class with her again!

    Great class and instructor! I love that Leelee let us pick the flowers we like most, and then taught us how to create an eye-catching arrangement based on our preferences. She was very helpful and came by to help out if needed. I learned a lot and my flower arrangements look better already! Looking forward to taking other classes with Leelee. Thank you!

    This was the first Dabble class I've taken, and it was great! I went with a couple of friends as something new and fun to do. The class took about an hour and a half and Leelee was great. She walked us through how to care for the flowers and then a method on how to make the best arrangements- she made it so easy! She made it clear that she wanted you to leave with arrangements you LOVE. She was constantly walking around helping people and making suggestions. I made 2 mason jar arrangements in this class and I love them! I can't wait to do it again myself :)
