    This lesson gets your creative juices really moving. Watching and learning form you and Jimmy Zhang how to make the flowers and the vases to put the flowers in, has been very helpful in making centerpieces for many of the different events we do. I have also used this lesson to make several centerpieces for my own home and small gatherings. I really enjoyed this lesson and would recommend this for those that enjoy entertaining and being creative.
