Where do you begin??

I was just like you until I began to take floral classes....creative, artistic...my passion was set on fire with floral design!

I am here today to tell you that floral design is for everyone!!

This changed my life & career path. My passion is stronger today....it wasn't always easy....but with practice everyday it became easier and prettier as well.

Compliments and sales for my floral designs also increased. I became a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers in 1992. What is AIFD?? A non profit organization dedicated to promoting the art of floral design as a professional career.

Then I found the best reward was sharing.... everything that was shared by my mentors and teachers!! How lucky I was to learn so many things about floral design.

Until today did you feel there is more to floral design & not finding the right information??? Join a class at the flower classroom...answers to all the questions in EVERY class.

No worries....all you have to do is begin. Classes for everyone, every month, convient times...

I provide: quality content
quality FLOWERS
quality design skills= a floral artist

Terrarium: is a tightly closed or open, clear glass or plastic container filled with small plants for growing.

Kokedama: an old Japanese art inspired by bonsai.  It uses moss as a vessel to hold the roots of a plant, which can be suspended in air.

New Variety Introductions
We have launched four new Garden Roses varieties for this year's wedding season. Although the production is relatively low, we are taking special orders for them. You can even order a new variety box with one of each of these gorgeous new garden roses! 

Mayra's Bridal Pink: is a new rose from the Mayra family bred in southern Spain. Bridal Pink is a flat rosette shaped rose with a white frame around a light pink center. Truly romantic is every bride's dream flower. 
Mayra's Bridal Pink

Rose Loves Me - Just a Little Bit More: This Danish beauty reminds us of Vuvusela: The bright pink rose with a strong Orange center. The contrast is quite striking. This rose has a vase life of 10-12 days.

Rosa Loves me Just a little bit more

Princess Aiko: We selected this rose from a Japanese breeder. Aiko has a peony shaped round head in a rich peach tone. The rose will open up quite nicely and hold 10-12 days in a vase.
Princess Aiko

 Princess Kishi: also from Japan, this striking rose is a bright purple color, often with an equally bright chartreuse center. This nice, long lasting rose is sure to make an impression.
