Learn the design skills you have always wanted to master, and the business techniques that will help you attract your dream clients.
Enrollment for our full-day Retreat workshop is opening in Winter 2022! Be the first to know when it re-opens and get exclusive updates!
We believe that you can create a thriving, beautiful floral design business that meets your goals, and attracts clients who love your work. Learn how to fine-tune your design skills, create florals that you are proud of, and grow your business with confidence!
The Retreat is a full-day floral design workshop focusing on bouquets, foam-free arrangements, and large-scale foam-free installations. The Retreat is for both florists and flower-lovers of all skill levels. Sign up for updates so you can join us when registration re-opens in Winter of 2022.
Learn our approach to artistic floral design, and watch us demonstrate how we create hand held bouquets, foam-free arrangements in vases and large-scale, foam-free floral installations.
At the end of the day, you’re invited to stay and share a meal with us and the other attendees. This is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on our day of flowering, ask us any lingering questions, and get to know each other better. There’s a seat for everyone at our table, we’d love to have you there! And you know this table will be beautifully designed!
To showcase the work you’ve created, we will orchestrate a styled shoot during the workshop, with a model and a professional photographer. These photos are yours after The Retreat, and you’ll be able to use them for your own personal and professional use.
As you create all of the items mentioned above on your own, we’ll guide you and give additional hands-on instruction. You’ll also get to take your arrangements home at the end of the day.
We know that being a florist is a lot more than just designing. In addition to asking us any business questions you have as we instruct, there will be a set time to talk design, business and marketing, pricing, sourcing flowers, etc. Our goal is for you to leave feeling empowered and full of clarity for your business.
In addition to our design methods, we will also demonstrate our approach to tablescape styling, and have an in-depth discussion on where we source our styling items from.
The entire day will be photographed by film photographer Hayley Waldo, including headshots and styled shots of your work with a styled tablescape and a model. All of these photos will be available for you to have and to use.
Each Retreat workshop is set in a new, different location - at one of our favorite venues in Tulsa or Oklahoma City. Sign up below for updates on where the next retreat will be held!
When we started in the floral industry over eight years ago, we truly felt like we were out on our own — and no other florists were willing to share how they built their businesses, or how they approached design. It took us years of trial and error to get to where we are now — a thriving floral business with our own studio, store and hundreds of high dollar weddings under our belts.
We have such a passion to take care of other aspiring florists. We want to share everything we know and everything we have learned over the years, so that you can approach your art and business with confidence.
Anthousai Retreats are typically held once a year in March or April - the best time of year for flowers! Sign up for our email list to be the first to know when the next date is announced.
We open Enrollment in January of each year.
The retreat is perfect for anyone who loves flowers and wants to expand their knowledge of floral design. That being said, it is most beneficial for florists and aspiring florists - anyone who is wanting to sharpen design skills and business skills. Any level of experience is great! We have had people of all skills levels attend in the past - from brand new baby florists to florists with decades of experience. We curate the experience to meet you where you are.
