First day of flower school!

I’ve been so excited to attend Michael Gaffney’s Floral Design school and have waited for almost 4 months! Today I attended my first class. Michael is an amazing instructor with very fun and exciting teaching style. I learned how to tie a European hand bouquet, properly assemble a dozen roses (American style) and how to create an English/Dutch design bouquet.

Here is the link to Michael’s website. He has done so much in his career. Really interesting background. Check out this link! http://milwaukeeschoolofflowerdesign.com/about Also you can see his book called Design Star at Amazon.com. The book has amazing pictures!

  1. I am loving the visuals with nature that my cousin Jeanne is creating! I’d love to share some of my Canadian foliage with her to create with! Way to go!
