For as long as I can remember I have wanted to take a class at Flower School NY. I am inspired the roster of instructors who include industry leaders such as Michael George, Lewis Miller, Meredith Waga Perez, Emily Thompson, Matthew Robbins and many more. Well on my recent trip to NYC my dream came true and I had the opportunity to take a design class at the Flower School NY with the fantastically talented Ariella Chezar. The class that I had the fortune of taking was on the art of the compote. Ariella shared her thoughts on the benefits of designing in a compote, her theory on color and her process of composing an arrangement. This was an amazing opportunity and I can’t wait to return to NYC so I can take more classes at the Flower School NY. Here is my compote centerpiece design!
