16 Floral Tips from Exploring New Places
Want to add new dimensions to your designs? Travel. Teach. Connect.

Understanding the flower possibilities and needs of another region or culture’s celebrations of life can help you develop new products and services to offer in your floral business.

Flowers speak when words fail.
This is just one of 16 tips and techniques you can use from a two-day American design program Smithers-Oasis Floral Design Director presented last month to Club Jardin de Guatemala at Instituto Guatemalteco Americano (IGA) in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

Tips include making design easy, tuning local materials into floral art and celebrating the chaos. 

The audience and Sharon explored floral techniques together while making new friends and having a lot of fun.
Discover the 16 tips along with more than two dozen photos. Just click the image above or green button below.

How Black Foam Changes Design Possibilities
With one simple yet brilliant why-didn’t-someone-think-of-this-before change, your floral design possibilities will expand this fall.

How? Black floral foam.
Specifically, OASIS Floral Foam Midnight, which has similar properties to other OASIS floral foam but is black, the color every other color seems to want to displace.

With Midnight, you can stop hiding foam. Instead, you can use it as a visible element in your designs. You can showcase elegance. And you can even use fewer flowers and foliage.
See for yourself: Click through to the blog to see the dozen photos of designs from Alex Choi, Loann Burke AIFD and Neville MacKay shown at the American Institute of Floral Designers Symposium earlier this month, where Midnight was introduced. Just click the image above or green button below.
