I'm so excited to be sharing the images of the design elements of our two day workshop Canadian Mountain Love with you all. We had two very talented florists, and equally talented event planners with us, and we had fun watching them do their thing!! The images were taken by the photographers whose work we shared last week. Have a look over the next few days, and let us know if you too want to join our workshops in the future!!

from Clarissa of Foxtail Floral Designs:
I started my business in January of 2018. Officially on paper. But I took the Floral Design Certification at Mount Royal University in September of 2017.
I originally started my business because I wanted to work for myself and have the flexibility to have a family one day but still work.
I’ve been a full time contracted RMT for the past 5 years and really love running my own business. I always knew deep down that one day I would work 100% for myself.
I fell in love with working with flowers back when I’d help my wedding planner friend with setup (Final Touches) and I knew after those experiences that the wedding community was something I wanted to be a part of.
My goals: 1. Grow my business while providing exceptional/beautiful designs. 2. Be 100% self employed by the time I’m 35. 3. Have 10-15 weddings each year.

During our design challenge day, we gave each of our designers, a chance to deconstruct the florals and use our decor store to design and style their own table scape.
I love the use of the red apples to accentuate the red tables theme, with the use of florals in the dark green goblets as well as the main centrepiece atop the stack of vintage books.
Our full vendor list for the design challenge:
OrangeTrunk Vintage Styling & Rentals
Shannon Valente Weddings
The Knot Garden YYC
Hobbysmith Glass Co.
Needle & Pine
Fall For Florals
Hope you all love seeing our design challenge, and features on our event planners and florists. I look forward to sharing more with you in the coming days!!
