Floral Design Classes! / by Alexsandria Vaughan

Birchwood is proud to introduce our new floral design classes!

With ten years experience in the floral design industry in multiple styles of design, I'm confident that you will learn lots from our design classes. Back in New York I taught classes and they were a great success. All my students had a good time, as did I. I'm so excited to be offering these new and improved floral design classes here in Nashville.

In each of our classes you will learn about basic flower care, choosing a color story, and picking the proper flowers to make the biggest impact. Every class includes all the materials you'll need as well as a print-out to refer back to when designing in the future. Each class has a specific goal and set of techniques and of course, your creations are yours to take home and enjoy!

Our classes:

The Perfect Bouquet: Learn techniques to create the perfect handheld bouquet that can also be easily plopped into a vase to double as a simple and gorgeous vase arrangement.

The Table Centerpiece: Learn techniques to create a low and lush table centerpiece that doesn't get in your guests faces but compliments your surroundings.

The Modern Arrangement: Learn techniques for making a modern arrangement in the architectural style with clean lines, and using negative space.

Using Your Own Vases: In this class you'll be asked to bring in two of your own vases from home. You'll learn what flowers and design techniques are appropriate for the various types and shapes of vases. This class is recommended for those that have taken previous floral design classes.

To participate in one of our classes you have two options.

Option 1 is to click on "Classes" at the top of the website homepage and then select "class calendar". Here you will find a list of our upcoming classes. Click on the class to see a more detailed description and sign up instructions. Or click here for a shortcut.


Option 2 is to host your own class. Once again, go to "Classes" and then select "Host a Class!" from the drop down menu. Here you will find individual classes for 1, 5, 10 or 15 students. These classes take place in your home or community center, or where ever you wish to host. This option is great for birthday parties, bridal showers, ladies groups... you get the idea. Simply purchase the class and we will contact you immediately to set up a date, time and location for your class. Click here if you'd like to purchase a class.

I hope to meet you all in person very soon!
