We had a great time at the Designer of the Year Workshop on Sunday, Mar. 10th! There were designers of all levels learning different techniques for competition. Each participant designed a surprise package, buffet and wedding piece. These were all then critiqued and the results were shared with everyone. Hoping we’ll fill up the room for DOY at the convention!
Education is so important in our industry. We are in an ever changing retail and wedding world, Being a part of this association and participating is part of how we learn and grow. It’s what keeps us “going!” I am constantly amazed by the exceptional creativity of designers in our state. Take advantage and learn. Your customers will thank you.
Thanks to all who participated and to Michael Whaley AIFD and Stephanie Garrett AIFD. A special thanks to Cleveland Plant and Flower Company, Curtis Flower Farm, and Hardins for donating flowers and product. Please be sure and give each one of them a personal thank you! We’re also grateful to Fresh Affairs for their great design room!
Thank you all!
