We’ll fill you in on how to make our signature green looping (a Big Apple Florist specialty), and we’ll also share some our favorite professional floral design resources for purchasing fresh flowers, vases and greens in the city. By the end of our professional floral design class, you’ll be able to go home and create your very own unique floral arrangements, sure to dazzle any Manhattan apartment.

Learn Modern-Compact Techniques in Our Comprehensive Flower Design Class

Big Apple’s floral design class will be led by our lead floral designer, Brianne Tuthill, and our very own Big Apple Florist blogger Georgeann will also be there to assist! Each participant will have the opportunity to design two floral arrangements from scratch, using two different techniques: “greening” and “gridding”. We will make use of a variety of high-end, seasonal flowers in seasonal colors, such as:
  • Antique hydrangeas from Holland
  • South American roses from Ecuador
  • Orchids from Thailand
  • Dutch calla lilies and freesia
  • Locally-grown sunflowers
  • Textural accents such as berries, dried pods, and mini gourds

After a basic floral design technique overview, participants will be free to create their own floral combinations, colors and styles, with help from the pros. And the best part? All participants will also get to take their two amazing floral designs home.
