When it comes to learning floral and event design, there is so much to learn. If you’ve decided to take the plunge and want to sign up for a class, you may be wondering where to begin. Our classes are generally self-contained, so there isn’t a prescribed order. This is all about you and how you want to grow your business! If you’re ready to learn, here are a few of the topics that we cover.
Floral Design: This is by far where most of the decorating work comes from at weddings. While all weddings are different, floral centerpieces are an essential standard. Arrangements aren’t just about throwing flowers together. There’s an art to designing creations to wow your brides. If you’re looking to offer an additional service to your brides, this is definitely one that they will be looking for. Beyond weddings, floral arrangements can be seen at other events and parties as well, so you can use this skill in a variety of ways.
The Backdrops: If you’re looking for the “ooh” and “aah” factor, generally it’s the backdrops that add that extra sparkle to a room. While not every client will be asking for a backdrop, those that do will be expecting the grandeur of a well-designed piece. It’s a good idea to understand not only how to build a backdrop, but also how to price it. If you’re looking to up your game, taking a class to learn how to create backdrops will certainly help you get there.
Ceremony Décor: Many people focus so much attention on the reception, they forget about the ceremony. While there will be less décor involved in the ceremony, this extra touch will help you to gain gratitude from your clients for focusing on all of the details. Learning to create arches and adding finishing touches to a ceremony will help round off your education and ensure that you are well prepared to handle any decorating need that arises. Beyond the basics, you’ll also want to get a feel for other decorating techniques as well as learn how to use the knowledge to enhance your business and gain the confidence of your clients.
Of course, each class is different, and you’ll want to do your research first so that you understand the benefits of each and so that you’re prepared to make the most of the learning. Be sure to choose a class that will suit your needs, and be prepared to learn more than the basics if you decide this is a true passion for you.
