More flowers for 2019! Join us and the flowers for a fun program soon. Can't make one of these dates? You can always find us at the Keene Valley farmers' market.
I’ll teach you best practices in sustainable floristry for wedding and event work and together we’ll build a large installation piece, a bridal bouquet, boutonnieres, and a centerpiece. This program covers not only sustainable floristry mechanics and materials, but also the selection of appropriate local flowers and greens for each type of project. Which greens will hold up out of water in an installation? How do you make a sturdy, but moveable free-standing ceremony arch? I’ll chart a course for our time together based on your questions and interests. This class is everything I wish I’d had when I started designing. Professional photography included. Participation limited. More details coming soon!

Learn the ins and outs of our most proven marketing and design strategies and put them to work for you same day! I hear often: “Do you ever sleep?” “How do you do it” “I want some of whatever you’re taking!” These comments always make me giggle, but the truth is I had a nice leg up when I started my business on account of my background in visual arts and communications. Did you know that I started my professional career with the Discovery’s Channel’s Online Marketing Department? Shark Week - Yep! I worked on that. Join me for a day long look behind the scenes at our marketing strategies and best practices. We’re sure you’ll walk away more confident in your ability to make your brand shine online! Details coming soon.
