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...
