Learn my classical meets modern methods for dynamic, effortless floral design in my adopted city of LISBON! We'll start the day with a walk through the city's flower market and we'll learn how to shop for flowers, with insight along the way about the local Portuguese culture pertaining to flowers. Next, we'll enjoy tea and snacks while we go over my flower philosophy and how to choose the right ingredients. We'll process flowers, then enjoy a light lunch before making three styles of arrangements with locally sourced fresh cuts in addition to a selection of foraged flowers.

"Spending the morning with Chelsea was the highlight of my birthday trip to Lisbon! After meeting at the market and getting the inside scoop on ordering coffee in Portugal, we gathered up the biggest and most beautiful assortment of delicate and feathery garden flowers I have ever had the pleasure of helping to select! The afternoon was spent learning to tie bouquets and snacking on delicious meats and cheeses. In short this experience was magical, and everything I could ever want in a day!"-Megan, USA
