4 great looks with glass vases

Even if you only have one glass vase at home in your cupboard you can create lots of different looks with a few simple techniques. Utilising pretty things you can find in your own house or garden you can change the look of your vase to match the flowers, a theme or the decor. For more great tips come to one of PSf great Courses for Fun.

In this first picture ww have used silvery gumnuts and foliage to tone in beautifully with the soft pretty flowers. It's a very soothing effect.

 In this second picture we are using fine pieces of spear grass to line the vase. The vibrant green not only offsets the brightness of the blooms but also hides the stems of the flowers.

To create another style for your vase we have used a plastic container inside the vase wrapped in rope to give the vase a lovely rustic feel to match the country-feel flowers.
For our last look we are using pebbles in the vase. The white pebbles give the design a clean fresh feel.

Wow! Valentine's Day

Preparation for Valentine's Day is just amazing, past and present students from our Pearsons Commercial Course have had a great few days helping us prep thousands of roses and other beautiful blooms for delivery on Tuesday.
It's a great way to test your skills and get to know how to prepare for and run such a busy day. Part of our Industry Program includes students doing work experience in the Pearsons design centre for large events and special floral days.

It's all in the finishing touches!

When it comes to Full Day Styling Sessions at PSF, all our trainers fight to teach the wedding sessions (our clients love them too;they always book out early!). In late March we've got a gorgeous Sunday planned - SUNDAY WEDDING STYLING SESSION: 'AFTER FIVE'.

Spend the day creating the scene for a striking 'After 5' wedding gathering. Using seasonal blooms, luscious foliages and textural branches, and covering a range of styles we encourage our budding designers to see beyond the typical table arrangement and truly challenge the possibilities of decorating with flowers.

From the table to chairs and settings all will be covered. Discuss the finishing details that create the perfect wedding and personalise the flowers to suit the theme and personality of the big day!

Pictures from this wedding below, created by the talented team from the Pearsons Florist design centre, really inspired us with the attention to detail and perfect little touches. We especially loved the brooches on the flowers - absolute vintage glamour!
