Each month, we cov­er a cur­rent event in the flo­ral trade, flo­rals from real wed­dings, our lat­est flower adven­tures and endeav­ors, design tips, cur­rent flo­ral trends, flo­ral design class­es and work­shops, book rec­om­men­da­tions and flo­ral tool tips.

Since 2010, we’ve cre­at­ed a hot list of what’s on for flo­ral design in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia and beyond. As guest speak­ers inside and out­side of Cal­i­for­nia, we know what clients are search­ing for in the wed­ding and event indus­try. We are your trust­ed resource for flo­ral design tips and tech­niques for all lev­els of the flower enthu­si­ast.

Kit Wertz and Casey Schwartz, sis­ter design team of Flower Duet, have been com­mit­ted to edu­cat­ing our stu­dents and fans since we start­ed our flo­ral design busi­ness in 1999.

We don’t share our email list with any­one! So, you can rest assured, your email is safe with us.

Blush and creams continues to be a hot bridal trend for 2017.

While blush col­ored flow­ers paired with creams con­tin­ue to dom­i­nate the wed­ding col­or palette for 2017, we will see a turn toward more green­ery and nat­ur­al col­ors in the com­ing year. We have many requests for lots of green­ery for wed­ding and event flow­ers.

White flowers with greenery continue to be a popular combination for weddings and events.
