Our team has the privilege of working with flower design expert and celebrity florist, Michael Gaffney, founder of the American School of Flower Design. The American School of Flower Design has eight campuses around the country (San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Miami) offering students the chance to learn the tools to take their passion for flower design and make it into a full-time profession.

This fall, Gaffney will release a book to the public called Design Star: Lessons from the New School of Flower Design. We were able to take a sneak peek of the book and let me tell you – it’s wonderful!
