Floral Arrangement Training

Araucana Lodge is opening in less than a month! Over the next few weeks we will be working hard to complete construction, decorate and set up the hotel, and train staff. Some trainings ahem, food safety, are boring and uninspiring. But some days, like today, are full of color and fun. Today was floral arrangement training! We foraged flowers and foliage on the property, foraged vases from the kitchen, and voila! I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

Concrete planters make great sturdy vases. We just put a bucket at the bottom!
