      • Floral Styling for Events Short Course

        Are you wanting to start a career in Floral Event Styling or just increase your knowledge & upskill? If so, then this course is for you!

        WHAT WILL I LEARN
        Over 6 consecutive sessions (Saturday’s) you will gain all the skills & knowledge required to cost-out + quote, design, construct & install the latest floral event designs sort after by both wedding & event clients.

        The 6 sessions will cover:

        • Floral Wall/Backdrop
        • Hanging Ceiling Installation
        • Bridal Table Styling
        • Floral Arch
        • Elevated Table Centrepiece
        • Client Consultation, Costing & Quoting

        For the larger designs (Flower Wall, Hanging Ceiling & Arch) you’ll work in teams, as you would on-site, & you’ll construct the the Bridal Table & Elevated Centrepiece designs individually. We will also discuss & show you how to incorporate these into a larger design.

        You’ll be working with the latest equipment & sundry items – importantly how to keep the flowers fresh throughout the event. And we’ll also show you how to adapt all the items to whatever purpose you require, showing you how to think outside the box.

        There’ll be lots of discussion regarding working on-site, working with event & hospitality staff and your client, and most importantly we will also advise you on how and when to construct the designs, how to store them prior to the event and how to transport them to the venue.

        You’ll learn how to consult with the client, costing from wholesale to retail and presenting a professional quote to the client along with all the pitfalls of under-estimating &/or over-valuing. We will also do a full costing of each design in class.
