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.
