ECN 6th Annual Workshop - Professional Floral Design

During the 6th Annual Event Coordinators’ Workshop: Designing for Excellence, many attendees participated in the professional floral design breakout session lead by Valarie Bell, a talented local floral designer. 

During the session, Bell demonstrated four floral design pieces of various sizes, costs, styles, and functions. She used beautiful flowers in her arrangements such as white hydrangeas, carnations, orchids, calla lilies, and other accents such as lily grass, sheet moss, and monstera leaves. She utilized several vases (tall glass, square glass, bubble bowl, gold plastic dish, and black disposable tray), and a variety of supplies – bind wire, oasis blocks, waterproof ribbon, Just For Flowers color spray, “UGlu” dashes tape, and bamboo sticks – to assemble the pieces. Through her simple and elegant arrangements created on a very small budget, Bell helped to demonstrate that even while watching costs very closely, you can make creative arrangements that enhance your event.
