Wedding Floral Design Workshop

Learn the ins and outs of selling, handling and designing wedding flowers. Participants will discover how to sell wedding flowers, creating the “win/win” with clients. We will cover floral care and handling materials and techniques that make flowers last. Learn how to correctly execute hand-tied bouquets, save time with adhesive-mechanic corsages and boutonnieres, be creative with centerpieces and design a spectacular altar arrangement. This class is outlined for those with very little, if any, professional wedding floral experience and those who aspire to sell wedding flowers at a profit. My approach is practical and emphasizes labor-saving techniques for the busy business-owner. Flower farmers are especially encouraged to attend. Bring cut flower knife, wire cutters, ribbon shears, pruners. Lunches included; please let us know if you have dietary restrictions or special considerations.
