Course DescriptionFloral arranging is much more than simply putting a bunch of flowers into a vase and filling it with water. Learning the basics of floral arranging will help you put together a simple vase of flowers so that it looks elegant, professional and classy. In this course you are going to learn the fundamentals of floral arranging, from the basic tools you will need, to how to prepare for a big event and be able to pull it off with confidence.
In this course you will learn the elements and principles of design, how to use the flowers and foliage available to you in your area, and the mechanics of arranging flowers in vases, in floral foam arrangements, and as hand-held bouquets. You will learn how to create the classic flat bouquet and hand-tied posies, as well as bouquets that are arranged in a variety of containers, such as baskets, boxes, and bags.
Stop thinking that there are difficult rules about creating beautiful floral arrangements. Learn to trust your own vision while you are creating a floral work of art. Flowers are meant to be enjoyed--by you and by people who love to receive them. Once you complete this course you will have the ability and confidence to create floral arrangements for all types of events, from a Mother's Day tea party to a simple and elegant wedding.
