Floral designs by Francoise Weeks

Who wants to meet me in Portland Oregon? That’s right, I am going to Portland. I am thrilled to be a guest designer at Francoise Weeks floral design studio. We will be holding a wedding and event workshop. I have been following Francoise’s work for the last year and a half and I am honored to be teaching with her.  Many thanks to Amy from Botanical Brouhaha and Alicia from Flirty Fleurs who introduced me to Francoise.

The above designs were all created by Francoise Weeks.

Now about the class…

Time: 9am til 4pm (1 hour lunch break)

As I embark on new and exciting things I find I am living by this quote from Francoise Weeks ‘When the desire to succeed becomes greater than the fear to fail, I move forward.’  Those are words I can live by!!!

With that said, who is going to meet me in Portland?
