Preston Bailey's Intermediate Floral Design

Preston Bailey’s Intermediate Floral Design, Part 2 of the Floral Design series, builds upon a florist’s knowledge of manipulation of flowers to create the breathtaking and detailed designs that Preston Bailey is most famous for when using a Table Top approach in designing an event. This course breaks down the many layers of design including table size, shape, materials, and flowers incorporated into table top designs.

Students will learn the process for creating and building each design layer incorporated into a Preston Bailey Table and how each layer works together to create a cohesive design using a combination of color choices, flowers, materials, and table shapes. Students learn how to utilize a design formula to properly plan, design, price, and execute a floral design to make a profit. Students will ultimately learn the financial side of floral design to confirm their formulas and pricing structures for floral designs for the table.
