The holidays are a time for traditions, and that is no different for the flower industry. This time of year, people fill their homes with garlands, wreaths, holly and of course, poinsettias! But how do we keep the spirit going and help our favorite Christmas flowers last past the holidays?
WFFSA has come to the rescue and put together this helpful guide! Enjoy!
In the last installment of his Mayesh Design Star series, Jerome makes a not so traditional holiday topiary for the harvest time of year. This a great trans-seasonal design that will look perfect on any tablescape or buffet table.
We would like to thank Jerome for an incredible design series! We hope he has inspired you as he inspired us! It was a pleasure working with you, thank you Jerome!

Tim Ferral gave us an excellent presentation on the upcoming holidays and opportunities to increase speed in creating designs, increase profitability when selling customers and increase customer satisfaction by asking appropriate questions to establish customer expectations. He provided an excel spreadsheet tool and demonstrated how to calculate flower allowance, labor and selling price for each arrangement.
