Testimonial from previous class:
I want to thank you for the terrific floral marketing class. It was a great opportunity to take a step back and look at my online presence and social media participation as a whole, and really up my game.
For me, it makes such a difference to have another floral professional evaluate my marketing. I feel like you completely understand my work, and the way that I want to present myself to the world. The feedback I got from you was on point, and practical. We were able to implement most of the changes right away, and have a long term strategy in place to continue to improve.
I am delighted to be a part of your online community, and hope to work with you again.
All the best,

Whenever I see Pieris Japonica (aka Andromeda) I think of my friend, Alex of Exquisite Events in Chicago. Alex LOVES Pieris Japonica! It’s easy to see why, Pieris just adds such an interesting texture, flow and color to flower arrangements.
I spoke with Debbie at Florabundance about availability and she said it is typically available March & April for a few weeks and again in the fall – August, September, October and November. It’s availability definitely fluctuates with the weather.
Here are a selection of lovely designs featuring Pieris Japonica..
Our last Fall Foliage Challenge was quite the hit – thank you to all who participated! I’ve had a few of you ask about doing another Challenge, and I’m happy to oblige! So here goes!!
The December Challenge is: Winter Greenery & Berry
Design an arrangement of foliages, berries, fruits, etc – but NO flowers!
All materials must be collected from your property or surrounding area. For this challenge we will say within 1 mile of your designing location. (time to hit up the neighbors!)
Who’s taking the challenge??
