Summer Wilds

During my first Summer break after my freshman year in college I got my floral design certification and ended up putting it to use in the following years, working part-time at a flower shop in Brooklyn while I earned my degrees. While those days are long behind me, I am grateful to have been taught the science of constructing a hand-tied or vase, mixed-flower bouquet and find it one of my most utilized skills from my days in school. Large, fancy, floral foam-based arrangements are impressive and crucial for big events or memorial pieces but the seemingly simple act of putting together a lower-priced table arrangement from your farmer’s market finds is one that I rely on far more heavily in my post-floral professional life.
