Demonstration at the Florida State Florist Association’s Annual Convention
It was such an honor to be invited last fall by the Florida State Florist Association to do an on stage program, and teach to a hands-on workshop at their annual convention in Orlando in June 2015.
The presentation on woodlands and botanical couture and the workshop were sponsored by BloomNet.The topic of the workshop was woodland bouquets and the students created fantastic designs. Mayesh sponsored the flowers for both events and Oasis provided the european bouquet holders as well as all the cold glue.
A heartfelt thank you to these companies for their generosity which made this opportunity a reality. I am also very grateful for all the help and coaching from my friend Jo Jarvis for this event.
For 2 days we prepared woodland and botanical couture pieces in a workroom that we shared with Dutch designer Pim Van den Akker. Creativity was unleashed to make the many designs for the program. I enjoyed watching the program of several of the designers and it was fantastic to meet such a great group of creatives!
