Taught by the Best

Amy Steiner, AIFD, is our instructor. She took second with her design in the Lincoln Cup competition. Of course, we thought hers was the very best!

Get Well Zone

I'm going to show you my design for the student competition before I start posting all the other fabulous flowers at the Illinois State Florists' Association Convention. The theme of the student competition was Get Well Zone. And this one was truly a get well arrangement, since I'm recovering from a particularly nasty bout of the flu.

It was nearly 70 degrees here yesterday and I looked the yard over for any daffs coming through. They weren't there yesterday, but I went out to check this morning, and there they were. (Although I probably shouldn't get too excited--there's a winter storm watch in effect.) These came from Mark's grandparents' farm and no telling how old they are. They were in a field, probably where an old farm house stood in years past.

Practice Piece

This was made with leftover flowers from class the other night. I like using the stems!
