DIY bridal floral

Want to add a personal touch to your upcoming wedding? Bachman’s is offering a floral design workshop, designed for the DIY bride.

Participants will learn professional designers’ tricks for making dream wedding flowers, including a hand-tied bouquet and techniques for arranging flowers at parties and the reception. Bachman’s bridal consultant and award-winning floral designer Karen Ortiz will lead the workshop.

The workshop will be offered twice, from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday and 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Design Room at Bachman’s on Lyndale, 6010 Lyndale Av. S., Mpls. The cost is $40. To register, call 612-861-7311 or visit

Sample sale

Looking for designer home goods at a discount? The Minnesota chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) will host its annual sample sale this week, offering 50 to 80 percent price reductions on designer furniture and one-of-a-kind home decor items. Sale items will be available in many showrooms throughout International Market Square.

During the sale, roving ASID members will be on hand to provide one-on-one consultations and advice on everything from accent colors to room concepts. Shoppers also can sign up on-site for free 30-minute appointments with a designer each day of the sale, and are encouraged to bring floor plans, room dimensions and clear photos of their space.

Sale hours are noon-7 p.m. Thursday, 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at International Market Square, 275 Market Place, Mpls.

Free carpet squares

Fall is a good time to refresh home decor. But no one wants to buy a big rug and bring it home only to find that the colors don’t quite match the space.

If you’d like to “test-drive” a floorcovering before you make a purchase, carpet-square design resource Flor is offering “sample square Saturdays” every Saturday in September and the first Saturday in October. Anyone who visits the store can choose two free carpet squares to try at home, in preparation for Flor’s coming sale, Oct. 7-29.

Flor is located at 1426 W. Lake St., Mpls.
