Join Jordan Calgaro, floral designer from Event Floral, to learn tips and techniques for creating a beautiful floral design. From selecting your flowers, processing and preparing them for a design, choosing the right containers and accessories and actually starting the design, learn how you can turn store bought flowers into a custom arrangement. We will work with fresh blooms to create a simple and seasonal hand-tied bouquet using techniques you can easily replicate at home.
