Flower Classroom & Florists Review tip of the week

October 28, 2013                 Florists Review Tip of the week

Design with ease

Adding a couple of inexpensive resources to your design table could make a big difference in the speed and ease with which your designers work.

A sturdy lazy Susan is a great tool for 360-degree designing, allowing one to easily access all angles of an arrangement without moving around.

Another tool for designing all-around arrangements is a mirror. This can either be mounted on the wall opposite the design table, or a small tabletop mirror can be used. Place the mirror opposite the designer; she or he will be able to view both the back and front of the arrangement with just a quick glance.

Flower Classroom Tip of the week

Besides resources…keep you design table top clean from extra flower debris….this will enable you to look at your designs at all angles.

Keep your tools sharpened!!  A good clean 45% cut on your stems with a sharp knife or scissors will allow the stems to DRINK& DRINK……Flowers LOVE fresh clean floral preservative water.
