This comprehensive and hands-on curriculum was designed with the intention to pack in EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW about floral & wedding event design. It starts with the basics, teaching you the core techniques needed to successfully assemble florals; to applying unique color palettes or simply adding a flair to a classic design making it your own. We even cover working with vendors to make your designs transpire and teach you how to maximize your designs and your clients budget.
In the LEVEL Floral & Event Design intensive you will have direct training with real products and blooms, creating centerpieces and WOW factor designs. We will teach you how to create a proposal that inspires your perspective clients and how to effectively translate your designs from paper to reality. In addition you will be pairing rentals, lighting and linens to take your designs and event to the next level!
We don’t stop there! We will cover the keys to a successful consultation, networking goals and requirements, the vendor relationship, basic marketing and branding tips to giving you a luxury feel and ways to unlock the mindset we each possess that will light a fire under your business!
