Special Events and Themes

Special Events and Themes Course is an advanced level Course, and may completed in 8 weeks by attending – 2 hours each week. Please note: for your Certificate another subject of 8 weeks must be attended; choices are Corporate Design or Wedding Specialist; the Wedding Specialist is actually the latter half of the full Wedding Specialist Certificate Course, however, will teach you mostly Bridal Table and Guest Table Designs, Church and Pew Decorations, Garlands or Swags and modern and traditional Topiary Trees, all in fresh flowers; or you may request to do something else you may have been thinking of learning.

Special Events and Themes Course is for those who wish to design flower arrangements for Corporate functions, Banquets, formals, balls and special events, most balls will have a theme; whether it is black and white; or “Cointreau”. Frequently, the theme will flow through from the entrance to the table designs and to the stage area, where the band will be and the announcements during the evening are made.

For luncheons, such as Football Clubs, the focus will be on the Club’s colours and in the case of a Melbourne Cup or a function like this, the theme may be to do with Horses, or luck, horseshoes, numbers, Jockey silks, etc.

Our Special Events and Themes Course will expand your ideas, imagination and creativity, which are all important for this type of work and our aim is to bring this out in your Floristry ideas and designs for all types of occasions, whatever need may arise.

You will learn to do suitable table designs for rectangular tables, round and corner tables.

You will be taught about timing, for the opening of flowers, to be at their best for the special day. Lasting/lifespan of certain types of flowers, preparation and planning; ways to make it easier and also how to work faster – when a large number of designs may need to be completed for the one day.

This all comes from knowledge, experience and understanding of which is the key to arranging a large function or event, by good management, organization and co-ordinating everything to come together at the same time. For an event to run smoothly, it takes much thought, planning and care. Our complete training will equip you with the knowledge, skills  and awareness for all your Special Events and Themes for the future.
