Between 1 and 3 p.m., celeb flower designer Michael Gaffney (and founder of the Chicago School of Flower Design) will be hosting a Alessio Alessi floral event that will teach guests how to create DIY flower arrangements by playing with different heights, colors, shapes, and textures. If you're lucky, you might walk away with one of Gaffney's creations — Alessio Alessi container and all (score!). So, there's no reason you have to wait for spring to make its cheery appearance. This weekend, put a little pep into your pad like a pro. With gray skies and flurries in the forecast, what else are you doing?
Bloomingdale’s Home Store, 600 North Wabash Avenue (at Ohio Street); 312-234-7674.
