Destination Floral Design Classes and Supplier Tours
Coming soon! Check back for details regarding my 2016 Floral & Wedding Design learning programs. I’m currently researching locations that include the Rocky Mountains, the west coast, and hopefully somewhere warm and on an island somewhere. Hawaii would be nice.
I am looking for unique and unusual settings and locations to share my passion with those in the floral industry. Please contact me if you’re one of the following:
- Floral Wholesaler
- Flower Farm
- Flower Shop
- Wedding Planner
- Floral Association
- Garden Club
Flower Styling for Everyday Arrangements and Occasions
I want to help others learn to express their artistic style, while remaining in sync with client preferences. I hope to inspire today’s florists with my 35 years of experience. I’ve seen styles come and go and can help explain and dissect basic principles, as well as today’s trends.
Styles come and go, and I’ll show you the best of what works for me. I’ll then let you display your creativity, once we’ve discussed basics of building the bouquet, pricing and other considerations.
- Congratulatory and showy pieces that show affection
- Creative and unusual pieces that demonstrate an artistic flair
- Traditional pieces for sympathy messages
- Romantic and dramatic touches with branches and filler
- Containers, wraps and handles
- Wreaths and special events
