Special Floral Event Design with Schaffer Designs
Everything is bigger in the United States! This goes for weddings and floral events just the same!
The Special Floral Event course will be taught by Bill Schaffer and Kris Kratt, both award winning Event Florists with years of experience on the subject matter.
They are specialized in these types of events, from corporate parties to weddings with over 800 guests.
Large Scale Floristry
These type of productions take a lot of careful planning, delegating and concepting.
From calculating the amount and cost of flowers in a flower wall, to building and making the actual installments, it will all be part of this course.
We have had the pleasure to meet Bill and Kris years ago and over time joined their team to help create their amazing exhibits at the Philadelphia Flower Show (Which won gold multiple times).
They have a lot of respect for the craft of teaching and have a deep desire to share their accumulated knowledge with you; the future of this industry.
Some of the most fun experiences in the the flower business are to create flower arrangements for bigger weddings and events. How great is it to be able to make this type of specialist flower work? Good designers that work well in teams are in high demand!
Subjects of this Program
Making a big foundation for a flower arch, creating a stylish decoration for a company event, dinner, wedding or other memorable event, all techniques for these arrangement types will be handled during the course.
Combine the fact that you will be taught by two of America’s biggest event designers with the fact that 2024 marks the 44th anniversary of our school, this year’s Special Floral Event Design Course will be even more special!
