The demand for floral design classes in both NYC and LA is increasing more than ever now! People are just ga-ga over floral design, probably because it's so fun and you get to feel like a kid or an artist in that moment. I've been doing corporate classes for team-building and just for something fun as a treat for their staff.
I've also began to teach at Brooklyn Brainery, which is an awesome little spot and has a million classes to chose from. My Intro and Wedding classes sold out in a jiffy. Some students in the wedding class were there because they couldn't get in the first one. I will be teaching regular classes there including Advanced, Wood Boxes, and Garden Baskets. I love inspiring people and this truly isn't work for me. I've gotten the nicest emails from students after each class, and it really makes it all worth it!
Check out my tips for how to keep flowers fresh! I loved shooting this segment and the reporters couldn't be nicer. We had a lot of laughs behind the scenes. They like my soda dig and said Mayor Bloomberg would be proud;)
I absolutely love this color scheme. It is so elegant and classy while incorporating the colors we think of when we hear Santa Barbara. Carrie's wedding took place at the 5 star hotel Bacara; with it's sprawling views and gorgeous architecture, this is the venue of choice for those that want a creme de la creme wedding (no, they didn't pay me to write that;)
I booked this wedding through my friend Stacey of Stacey Lynn Design. The couple lives in Seattle, and we had never met until the day of the wedding! Through an extensive phone consultation and numerous emails, we were able to nail down this look.
They had a lot of small details for their guests including this Cigar Bar. The guests danced the night away to a live band.
We used mini green hydrangea, calla lilies, cymbidium orchids, and tulips mainly.
