Floral arrangement is the ultimate combination of technique and placement that sets the tone of a room. As a focal centerpiece, each arrangement needs to fit the occasion and match the personality of the artist. Additionally, each unique design requires a visual balance of color and texture. In this class, Alisa will guide you through the basics of florals and how to properly care for each piece as they come together in a beautiful fall centerpiece and wreath. Through Alisa’s loose and airy style, she will show you how to create the perfect mix of fall colors and textures to your home.
What you will learn
In the Art of Floral Design, each student will learn the mechanics of a floral vase design. Starting with your own personal style palate, you will learn the different types of accents and fillers that will create the base of your own design using local fall foliage. You will learn how to create centerpieces and wreaths that pulls away from symmetry and flow with natural movement. Using fall’s dahlias, eucalyptus, and other seasonal greenery, you will create gorgeous, aromatic pieces that match your aesthetic and color preferences. By learning the qualities of seasonal foliage, you can refresh any room with a touch of the outdoors and the autumnal scents that welcome the upcoming season.
With an emphasis on romantic and ethereal arranging, Alisa deeply believes that beautiful flowers have the power to transform a person’s mood and ultimately the energy of the room. However, each piece should also carry the wholesome, transformative properties that come with locally-sourced foliage and responsible ecological practices. The flowers used in each of Alisa’s arrangements are sourced from local farmers where they are planted, tended, and harvested with the attention of a master. With a literal grassroots beginnings, each piece is grown responsibly to reach the highest standard of beauty to perfectly match the specific mood and style for any event.
