A Floral Challenge – Working Outside your Comfort Zone
Love a design challenge? Enjoy connecting with floral designers who are equally passionate about learning new techniques?
Patience Pickner AIFD, PFCI, SDCF and Ace Berry AIFD, PFCI not only love a A Floral Challenge & design challenge, they love challenging other designers. The two floral friends joined forces to create ‘Inspired Design’ retreats. The focus of the retreats will vary … basic design, sympathy, wedding, advanced design, etc. The purpose is to challenge designers to work outside their comfort zones.
Online learning is currently popular and a convenient way to pick up new design techniques. But, it doesn’t offer the same inspiring feel and fragrance that designing with fresh flowers does.

The 4 C’s of Creating a Show-Stopping Wedding Cake Tablecloth with 1,800 Roses
So a bride asks her florist to create ‘something no one has seen before’ with fresh flowers, she’s asking for a real showstopper.
Ian Prosser AIFD, PFCI was asked to transform an understated four-tiered wedding cake into an amazing display. Ian and his team met the challenge by using a burlap tablecloth, 1,800 roses and 40 tubes of OASIS® Floral Adhesive resulting in a rose covered floral wedding cake tablecloth.
“It was truly a labor of love, but the end result was awesome,” said Ian. “I made a suggestion of covering the cake table in roses to the bride, then later wished I hadn’t. It was a lot more involved than I thought it would be. It took four people three hours to cover that table skirt in roses.”
Born in Scotland, Ian began his career with three successful floral design shops in Glasgow. His award-winning work has spanned more than 40 years and includes a long list of accolades and achievements. From Queen Elizabeth to Tom Cruise, this international designer is known for creating exceptional designs for celebrities and flower-savvy brides.
