Thanks to the wonderful folks at Syndicate Sales, I had the opportunity to travel to Santa Barbara to meet with a great group of florists from all over the world.
I was sent to document a beautiful event called Design Days, which took place in the gardens of Lotusland. The attendees worked with many stand out florists in the industry including Amy Osaba, Ariella Chezar, Hitomi Gilliam, Francoise Weeks, Holly Chapple , Alicia Schwede, David & Leanne Kesler, and Emily Carter & John Daly. Attendees worked on many projects and bouquet styles with each guest speaker. Attendees also worked to construct an amazing table scape with Holly Chapple and Syndicated Sales.
Even though most days were filled with rain, there was little fog. The skies were clear and you could see in all directions-- an event that only happens in January, so we were told.
Thanks to everyone for such a wonderful event. Looking forward to next year!
