Students arrived to be greeted by the Oh Flora team, yummy snacks & hand woven seagrass totes filled with beautiful & personalised gifts.
It was a tropical and summery theme to the day, entwined with Oh Flora’s signature airy and romantic style.
Attendees watched & noted as Tanya demonstrated her way of creating bouquets with a playful colour palette, then had a go at a bouquet of their own with personal instruction from Tanya.
Following bouquets, we had a delicious lunch break, keeping with the theme of colour & the tropics.
Attendees then sat down with Tanya to discuss all things business, pricing and Tanya’s BTS processes for Oh Flora. Then it was installation time! Tanya began with demonstrating a large scale ceremony or editorial arch installation using all kinds of blooms and tropical foliages.
Attendees then got in on the action, working together as a team to complete the group installation.
Using mini lilies, dahlias, garden roses, amarthus, anthriums+ many more varieties & foliages, including giant banana leaves & finished with a string garland of pink florals.
The day and each students creation was captured by Lana Ivanova Photography.
