KianaUnderwood_WeddingFlowers_Facebook_815x315

Memorable weddings are all about the details – from the shy flower girl to the spirited bouquet toss. Flowers are our way of symbolizing the living, budding love of a couple. Join renowned florist Kiana Underwood for a 2-day course dedicated to teaching you how to turn a simple arrangement into a work of art.

During this hands-on event, Kiana will cover every aspect of designing and creating gorgeous bridal and attendant bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and centerpieces. You’ll explore what makes a cohesive floral arrangement as Kiana guides you through methods of pairing flowers based on color, style, scent, and even significance. Kiana will cover ways to gain inspiration for new arrangements from the colors, seasons, and locally-available flowers all around you. You’ll also learn about incorporating unexpected elements and home garden-sourced flowers in your designs. The lush, organic arrangements you learn to create in this workshop will be as unique and stylish as the the couple they celebrate.
