The convention was an inspirational event. It is at conventions, and in classes that we learn new trends, new techniques, and most importantly, we learn about new flowers and what we can offer our customers. It is this information that becomes invaluable to us as we strive to be leaders in our industry.
A fun new tip that we picked up at our luncheon was the introduction of the use of various succulents in floral designs. Using live plants to add texture and a natural quality really made the luncheon centerpieces pop. They also alternated 3 different designs; 2 high and 1 low, to add variety to the room. All three pieces were different in style and design but they all incorporated the same elements and color scheme; which created a sense of unity through out the room.
