    Art of Floral Design

    Have you ever looked at a wreath and thought, "Pssshhh. I could make that." Well, it's harder than it looks. Perhaps this is the course for you. As an overview of flower design and arrangement, you'll learn the mechanics of a floral vase design, starting with your own personal style. You'll learn the different types of accents and fillers that create the base, and then you'll create a centerpiece that pulls away from symmetry and flows with a natural design matching your aesthetic, color preferences, and occasion. Finally, you'll learn to create a flower crown that brings together these techniques into a wearable and reusable personal statement. Not bad, for one day! Now go out into the world and try your hand one-upping that wreath you've been eyeing. You'll dance circles around it!
