Join Oakland based florist Rust & Flourish for a full day of florals and tablescape design! We're so excited to be hosting a full workshop, full of florals and event designing! The first part of our workshop, we will be creating a floral centerpiece for an 8ft table, using in-season and locally sourced flowers. First time designing with flowers? Not to worry! We will go through the basic elements of design, from processing, to mechanics, to color theory and placement. In our second half of the class, we will show you how to create a full tablescape design, using different decor items (plates, menu cards, goblets, candles, props), and how to pull things together to create a cohesive look. Afterward, we'll photograph your finished product for you to use in your portfolio. We've teamed up with some of our favorite Bay Area vendors so you can show off your design skills!
This workshop is perfect for event planners, florists, photographers, or couples looking for wedding ideas! We also planned it to be around the holidays - as we move out of our heavy wedding season, we move into corporate and holiday party season. Our colors will be moody and dramatic hues of gray, pops of golds, creme and nudes, with subtle bridge tones of mauve, amber vintage glassware, with darker accents like rich black. This is a great way to break out of the traditional winter molds of 'white/green/red', and try somethings completely different!
Included in the workshop: all materials provided for centerpieces, clippers, cocktails and snacks, photographs for your portfolio, as well as cute custom swag bags, full of gifts from our favorite partners!
Once you RSVP, we'll send an email out with the location! We can't wait for you to join us!
