Floral Design Sampler
Reviewed by Anonymous on 8/18/2019
My daughter and I really enjoyed the class and thought the arrangements we did were lovely and enjoyed Michael as a teacher. He made it fun and now we know the basics of making beautiful flower arrangements. I thought the space was a bit tight where the class was held. Also, we booked through Coarse Horse and the wrong address for the class was on the confirmation that was sent. (it was a private home) Fortunately, we called a floral shop we found online and they were able to give us the correct address; otherwise it would have been very dissappointing since I came from Arizona to attend the class. Hopefully you have fixed that error.

Well, I just looked at my Visa...I was charged the full amount $150.00 on August 23, 2018 and then the instructor told me I had only been charged $100.00 and he charged me an extra $50.00 yesterday(Sept.10, 2018). PLEASE credit the extra $50.00 to my credit card!!! The Class was very good and the instructor was great!!! There were a few problems...We was told there would be about 15-20 in the class and there were close to 40 people in the class! They had combined several classes together... The class began about 30 min late because they had to keep adding chairs and supplies and the instructor was collecting all of the money.( maybe he should have had a helper take the money) They also had a very nice lady talking about herb oils but my friend and I weren't interested in learning about oils because we came to learn about flower arranging. Please feel free to contact me! I look forward to getting my $50.00 credit ASAP... I would like to sign up for future classes. Thank you very much.

Really good class but a lot of time was wasted as the instructor ran people’s credit cards. I paid online, so I just sat there waiting.
