|European style cascade wedding bouquet by A Special Day Designs, serving Lake Tahoe, Placerville, El Dorado County, and Sacramento|
I was fortunate this month to attend the California State Floral Association yearly convention, and when I saw that they were offering a class with Tony Alvarez AIFD, CCF, and Reina E. Sumabat AIFD, I signed up. What a great class! Tony and Reina taught us some great techniques and gave me some great ideas, and I learned a lot of construction techniques.
Yes - flowers from an educated floral designer will cost you more than DIY flowers, or flowers you buy over the internet that are shipped on a hot or freezing brown truck. But you WON'T be seeing the streamlined, modern cascade like the image above arriving from them, either. It's your one special day - there are no do-overs. You can't drop-ship the artist.
