DE LA FLOR SCHOOL OF BUSINESS + DESIGN
When I first dipped my toes into the floral world, the main thing that held me back was the lack of educational opportunities. I couldn't justify giving up school and my other plans with the little education I did have. I needed more! It took me a year and a half and lots of money before I started my "side hustle" of floral design. But even after that, it took several months of running a business before I could feel confident in the business side of things. For this reason I offer a one-of-a-kind floral education course. During your Eight weeks with us we cover everything from technique, flower identification, mechanics, social media, business set up, and client consultations.
