Part 1 (1/31): Shopping at Mt. Eden Floral Company in San Jose, where many of the flowers for our altars and events are purchased. Learn how to select flowers and greenery for an altar or event, how to work within a budget, and how to gauge the quantity of flowers you will need. Bring warm clothes, as we’ll be in a refrigerated space.

Part 2 (2/2): Create bouquets to decorate the temple altar for Sunday Service. Let’s explore how to creatively work with the measures we’ve found to make a beautiful altar.
