Today we have great-and-super-awesome fortune to attend a  multi-day bridal flower workshop given by HitomiGilliam with Barry Cowart and A Floral Affair.
Are you familiar with Hitomi’s work? All we can say is: WOW. Like, totally. If you are unfamiliar, looking her up is worth the effort because Hitomi is absolutely fabulous.

Tonia McElveen, a senior floral designer, is traveling to Hilton Head to represent the Colonial House.

We’re so proud. 

Last week while in NYC, I had the pleasure of conversation with Laura  Iarocci of Faith Flowers. “You’re going to love visiting with Hitomi. She’s a dear friend. She is practical… knows a lot about mechanics. And, she is interested in encouraging the love of flowers in children… for future generations to carry-on this art,” she said.

We are eager to experience what Laura is referencing, to learn, to grow at this conference.

Have fun, Tonia. Give it all you’ve got! So, so, so very proud of you.
