MAY EDUCATION PROGRAM
THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF FLOWERS!
Just in time for the spring season, when so many gorgeous flowers are in bloom, we’re taking a deep dive into the world of floral arrangements with Anya Conte from Le Magnifique!
Flowers bring vibrancy to events and elicit emotion from the guests.
Floral is an element of the event décor that’s always included in the event planning…and oftentimes a challenge because we’re not educated enough about selecting blooms by season, and we’re not really savvy about how to guide clients to budget for floral. Being able to collaborate better with your floral designer will improve the conversations you have with clients to help them make the wisest decisions possible that fits their budget and captures their vision!
During this hands-on program led by Anya, you’ll learn about:
History of flower arranging and design around the world: We’ll discuss popular and forbidden flowers in different cultures.
A Virtual Tour of a Flower Market: Learn about different types of flowers, what they cost (and why!) , year-round availability of certain flowers, and the place of origin for many of the flowers we all love so much.
Understanding the Seasonal Aspect of the Flower Industry. Learning how to fit into a tight budget , using available flowers for a date of the event. Holidays and price change. How to budget your event around it.
New Industry Trends in Design: You’ll get first-row seating to have a look at new styles and popular looks, and learn how to match an interior of your chosen venue with flower decor.
Hands-On Education! Each participant will get to make their own flower arrangement in a vase from start to finish: Cleaning, preparing, cutting and arranging flowers in a fashion that tells a story!
This education program promises to be a highly informative and enjoyable evening in a relaxed environment at Anya’s studio.
