Class with Nicolette Owen of Nicolette Camille Floral Designs

by Jane

A few weeks ago, I attended a fabulous class in New York taught by Nicolette Owen, owner of Nicolette Camille Floral Designs. If you read flower magazines or keep up with the "flower world", then you know that Nicolette is a highly respected, published and admired floral designer. The workshop was titled "Bringing Nature Home", which is the title of a new book by Ngoc Minh Ngo, a well-known photograper. Nicolette designed all of the arrangements, and they are just out of this world! She is so talented, and so gracious! I have taken lots and lots of classes from many different floral designers in New York, and I have to say that they are the most kind, generous, and gracious people I have ever met. I guess anyone with a true love of flowers has to have a generous spirit. How could one not????

The flowers we were able to choose from were divine!!!! Again, New York, New York!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, those are carnations - a new creamy neutral. Everyone adored them. Yes, carnations have reclaimed their original place in history as a beloved flower!!! Just keep the baby's breath and baker fern out of them!

Pictures of my design are below! It was such a fun way to spend Sunday afternoon, especially after a walk through Central Park that morning with my husband and Yorkie, Chloe! A weekend to remember!

Loved our clippers!
