July Centerpieces Workshop Design Inspiration

July Centerpieces Workshop Design Inspiration

It is easy to get stuck in a rut with flowers - especially when you receive multiple inquiries asking for the same colors and designs. When it comes to floral event design, centerpieces can be viewed as either an opportunity to practice beautiful design multiple times, or as a mundane monotonous task. Sometimes, we simply need to cultivate creativity by allowing ourselves to create new and inspired designs!

Seven sweet souls gathered in the North Carolina mountains in July to do just that. They sought to cultivate creativity and find rest in inspiration. They overcame obstacles, broke through norms, and increased their design knowledge. And oh the creations they made! They poured their hearts into these flowers, so as you scroll through and admire the beauty they made, may you also be inspired to tap into the ingenuity within yourself.
