Don’t miss out on the fall Ultimate Women’s EXPO on Oct. 25th & 26th, 2014 @ the LA Convention Center!! They have asked the Los Angeles School of Flower Design to represent the ‘Flower Design Stage’ that weekend. Kim Rivas, our LA Instructor, will be there sharing her knowledge in the art of floral design and doing demonstrations throughout the day Saturday & Sunday. This is a fantastic event, so mark your calendars!!!
During the Masters Courses students can look forward to expanding their resumes to include: gorgeous event pieces, funeral sprays, cascading bouquets and much more as they progress through the 4 week course.
At the Orange County School of Flower Design, we run a masters class at the end of each ‘Design Star’ semester with the intention of expanding our students flower design knowledge. The Masters course focuses on the larger event, wedding and funeral pieces that are often requested in the industry today. Once our students obtain and fine tune the instructions that they receive during this course, they can then go out into the industry and put into motion all that they have learned…becoming a true ‘Master of Design’. We believe at the American Schools of Flower Design, that to be a true ‘Master’, you must gain ‘real life’ experiences in the field using the building blocks that have been given during the school session, like any other professional field.
We encourage all of our Design Star Graduates to take the masters classes, as we want all of our students to be fully prepared for success in the Floral Design Industry.
Ever wonder if the flower food packets you get with your flowers at the supermarket really work?
The flower food packets are used to ‘extend the life’ of your flower arrangement…Well, first we should think about what is killing the flowers in the first place.
~BACTERIA, BACTERIA, BACTERIA!!
Before you mess around with those messy packets of flower ‘food’, I would encourage you to keep the water clean and change it every 2 days or so….this will extend the life of your flowers with out messing around with the packets. Flowers are like our bodies and do the best when hydrated with clean fresh water….when changing your water on a regular basis, you are cutting down on the environment that bacteria grows best in.
At the American Schools of Flower Design, we instruct our students to add 1-2 DROPS of household bleach into the water of their arrangements to take care of any pesky bacteria that insists on polluting your water.
So as a recap of the design tip of the day….
1. Change your flower’s water regularly
2. Add 1-2 Drops of household bleach
Preparations for the Fall semester at the Orange County School of Flower Design have begun and we expect a fantastic turn out.

Thank you to A to Z Floral Wholesalers for making our OC school feel right at home!
