Floral designers from all over the country attended the exclusive Floral Encounter Conference 2021 in Charleston, South Carolina. This 3-day ticketed workshop which took place March 8-10 united floral designers who wanted to enhance their floral design skills led by some of the industry’s top floral design professionals.
The tools they gain from this workshop include building arrangements of different scales, creating works of art that they can recreate and sell to their future customers. From tall and short centerpieces, to decadent ceremonial arches, these students got hands-on designing with flowers provided by Jet Fresh Flower Distributors in Miami. The event adhered to COVID-19 safety protocols and participants attended responsibly.
Renowned floral designers came together for this amazing occasion presented by Michelle Summers of Your Signature Designs, and starring Preston Bailey, Javier Valentino of Javier Valentino Designs, Sarah Campbell of Intrigue Designs, and Bron Hansboro of The Flower Guy Bron, including guest appearances by Lance “Lamar” Devereux of Designs by Deveroux, Leah T. Williams of Leah T. Williams Events and Noah Sanderson, the Bearded Florist. Last but not least, from Jet Fresh, we sent the amazing, Jimi “The Tulip” to represent us and also connect with the designers lending his personal expertise on products as well as floral design.
The event was given a glamorous theme to capture the celebration they were all feeling since the last conference, which was right before pandemic began. To commemorate this joyous occasion, they chose a white, black and gold motif to tell their flower story. All this glitz and glamor was achieved using fresh natural and color-enhanced flowers as well as dried and preserved color-enhanced cut-flowers. All of these items and more are available from Jet Fresh Flowers.
Jet Fresh Flower Distributors proudly imports and distributes a wide array of natural and color-enhanced flowers from top farms around the world. Many of the flowers we provided for the event came from these farms: EZ Flower, Flores del Este, Jet Fresh Flower Growers, Latin Flower Farms, La Toscana Farms, Alexandra Farms, Manzanares, South Pacific Orchid, Sande Flowers and Singing Flowers.
The flowers featured at the Floral Encounter Conference 2021 include:
After three days, the students created tall, luscious table centerpieces that were accompanied with an abundance of low accompaniments. However, it wouldn’t be a full floral workshop without a lesson in decadent floral arches. This arch was decked out in flowers from the inside-out, and created a lovely setting for their styled shoot. Enjoy all these beautiful photos captured by and courtesy of Kim Craven Photography.
