Back To School–Flowers For The Teacher—With Apples–Part Two

It’s back to school time and Boston where our school is located is rocking!
But what kind of floral art can we provide for that great teacher?

In this video, the second part of our “flowers for the teacher” presentation we focus on the apple as symbol. We show a number of wonderful floral ideas for the teacher incorporating apples. ENJOY!

Note: Some apples are picked into these arrangements. We strongly recommend that the recipient of the arrangement be told NOT to eat any apples with picks placed into them. Those particular apples are for decorative use only-not eating. Instead provide the recipient with loose unpicked apples to enjoy….

Quick And Easy Floral Designing Using Floralgrids

One of the biggest problems with floral designing in water based media is the issue of control. How do you tastefully arrange your flowers so that they will look nice, and yet control the angle of placement when the water itself is sloshing around? ….. Many solutions have been proposed through the years.

At Rittners Floral School we believe that floral designing should be quick,and easy. The folks at floralgrid have sent us some wonderful materials to play with that make floral art in water based media, quick easy and fun.

We hope you enjoy this floral demonstration from Rittners Floral School in Boston, MA. and use these materials to make your own floral designing, quick, easy and fun!

Awesome Short Evening Course to start May 22nd at Rittners Floral School

 

Whenever I talk about  any course that we offer, I usually will comment that it is awesome (or words to that effect!) But I really mean it. I am proud of each and every one of the courses that we offer here at Rittners Floral School, as I am the folks who take them!

All of our courses are carefully designed for very specific consumer needs (not staff’s egos). In fact, some students have told me that one reason they are attracted to our school is that they can see that orientation.

Our Short Evening Course is a good example of that. We are offering it only once*** this season, starting May 22nd. It is designed specifically for folks who have asked us for a floral art course that features professional floral design content, yet is at night, is very short duration, and is as reasonably priced as possible.

This program meets that criteria. In fact, to our knowledge it is the most reasonably priced program of its kind in the region.

The advantages of this course for you are many—

It is at night making it an easy course to attend if you have job commitments or other obligations during the daytime.

It is short, which appeals to complex work and lifestyle schedules.

It is very reasonably priced which appeals to the pocketbook…..

Get out, have fun and meet some new people. Learn practical floral designing skills…. Enjoy the great teaching that our school is known for!

If you want to take a professional level course, and get the basics quickly and easily you can’t beat this one!

It is starting May 22nd, and is now filling.  I  have a limited number of spaces still available. If you are interested in this one, give me a call at 617-267-3824
