THERE IS NO PLACE I WOULD RATHER BE THAN HOLLAND IN APRIL, I HOPE YOU CAN JOIN ME.

DURING OUR FOUR DAYS TOGETHER WE WILL IMMERSE OURSELVES IN THE SPLENDOR OF DUTCH SPRING FLOWERS - PICK THEM, SHOP FOR THEM AND BEST OF ALL, DESIGN WITH THEM! WE WILL DESIGN ABUNDANT CENTERPIECES, LARGE SCALE ARRANGEMENTS, BRIDAL BOUQUETS AND FINISH WITH EVENT DESIGN. I TEACH TO ALL LEVELS, SO THE ONLY REQUIREMENT TO ATTEND IS A LOVE OF FLOWERS.
