When we teach flower arrangements at the classroom, we usually don’t make huge decorations mainly because of the limitation in the cost of flower materials and time available for the lesson. Once in a while some students show me the picture from a magazine or website requesting me to teach how to make a pretty big arrangement like the one displayed at the hall of hotel or wedding place. If the student’s request is reasonable, we sometimes offer the irregular instruction prepared for a special request from a student.
In this case, the student must have already earned the decent flower design skill, the level of which is at least Fresh Flower Arrangement Intermediate Course and she/he has a resourceful sense in flower arrangements. If she/he is considered a qualified student and the special lesson fee is accepted, the instruction of a custom designed arrangement is implemented. Once in a while this kind of special lesson takes place on a work load permit basis.
Since most of decorations we teach at a regular class is ordinary European flower arrangements with medium to small size which fits the interior flower designs or regular centerpiece decoration displayed on the cocktail table of a living room or dinner table of a dining room.
Most of such designs are also recommended for the decoration displayed on the console table in the living room or hotel elevator halls. Such console tables are usually equipped with a wall mirror that fits with sophisticated small size floral decorations.
Usually the depth of a console table is very limited and provides a much smaller space than a regular dinner table, tiny floral arrangement is preferably decorated on it. Many of high quality console tables are designed and manufactured in Italy and France where everything is much smaller than the standard size of the United States. In order to fit with European sense of furniture, you can make a perfect match with European flower arrangements offering a sophisticated atmosphere.
I always try to train our students so that they will earn skills of detail oriented and sophisticated designs of European floral arrangements by way of hands on training of ONE ON ONE instructions. Usually by the time they complete all the requirements of Intermediate Course offered by California Flower Art Academy, many students earn practical skills of European arrangements. The method of instructions is based on the manuals provided by Flower Decorators Association that is one of the best established and most sophisticated floral associations taking the initiative for promoting European flower arrangements in Japan. California Flower Art Academy has been teaching a variety of floral arrangements in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley (San Jose) since 1990 as a floral school certified by Flower Decorators Association (Tokyo Japan).
