The first thing I'll say about this trip is that I learned it's not cool or acceptable to say "San Fran" in San Fransisco. I was advised of this not 10 minutes after landing by my friend Sammy who was just kindly trying to help me avoid looking like an idiot for three days, thanks again Sammy. 

Myself, Lambert Floral and Jenn Sanchez decided it would be fun to do a one day intensive course covering bouquets, centerpieces and installations with a small group of students. With the workshop taking place at the beginning of July we knew we wanted the color palette to be juicy, and juicy it was. We had a gorgeous assortment of farm grown florals from farms just outside of San Fransisco, garden roses from Rose Story Farm, and other beautiful bits hand selected from the SF Flower Mart. 

Sammy guided the students through building lyrical centerpieces, I taught bouquets, and Jenn lead a beautiful installation class that we installed right in our airbnb. It was casual and approachable in all the best ways, and we couldn't have asked for a better group of attendees. No shortage of carbs or laughs either, the good stuff! 

Thanks to Sandy Lee for the gorgeous photos, Loho Bride for the dress, and Silk and Willow for the silk ribbons.

I've had the great pleasure of hosting this workshop for three consecutive years. Each time bringing a new group of eager florists ready to dive into their love of flowers. Every year has a different feeling thats made up of different personalities and people from different walks of life and I've loved them all for unique reasons. This year was special, and the group was diverse. 

I really love to encourage florists to explore their own creative expression. While I definitely teach my methods for design, I think the best thing you can learn is really something that can't be taught at all. Finding that inner artist inside of yourself and letting it speak through whatever it is you are creating. It's no easy task finding this voice, but it's glorious when you find it, and almost as wonderful witnessing someone else find theirs.  

We spend our days observing and creating, eating and conversing surrounded by the season's best flowers. All the good things. 

At the end of day two we keep things casual and bring in take out from a local restaurant in Park City. It's my favorite, because it's usually something heavy on the carbs like pizza. This behavior rings true to my normal end of an event feast. After days of avoiding food until it's absolutely necessary, I want my celebratory meal to be delicious and satisfying. This usually that comes in the form of something fried or covered with cheese.

I ended  up staying up until 1:30 in the morning chatting with a few attendees and it was one of my favorite memories of those few days. I like getting into thought provoking conversations and blowing past the superficial topics as quickly as possible with people if the opportunity presents itself. I just really enjoy the act of connection, and working to understand what makes people tick. I think the beauty of flowers and people who appreciate flowers really share a lot of commonalities and it's always so interesting to me to discover those. 

Lots of emotions come out of everyone by the end, myself included and it just feels unbelievably gratifying. I feel so thankful that life has taken me here and that I've been given these opportunities to  be surrounded by some of the loveliest people the world has to offer. Flower people, really are the best people. So thrilled to be offering a Fall version of Color Theory, dates and details to be announced soon! Sign up for email updates here

For as much as I love to use color, I tend to work within fairly neutral palettes for weddings for the most part. When the bride told me she wanted bright vibrant pink for the main color, I was initially afraid of it! Rarely do I work with that particular hue, but these arrangements ended up being some of my favorites. There are some incredibly beautiful hot pink garden rose varieties that I never get to use in wedding work. They were the star of this wedding, and I loved the vibrancy paired with all of the late summer/early fall textures.

Some of my favorite spring bits colliding with the best summer roses. These images are from my demo pieces from a one on one with Sunny from Korea. She was such a delight to teach and really soaks up everything she can.

Beautiful photos by Jacquelyn Hayward.
