Event Information

Floral Design Class Package – $1,200.00

Floral design is an intricate and thoughtful process – much more complex than simply putting stems in a vase. Learning the fundamentals of each step in the practice will give you the foundation needed to design a floral concept, craft an elegant arrangement, and even succeed in coordinating florals for a major event. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll become comfortable handling flowers, develop your abilities and style, and walk out of class feeling like a pro – with a little something to take home.

Tailored Twig’s Floral Design class package will include six classes taking place every Wednesday evening over a six-week time frame, beginning July 3rd at 6:30pm. Each guest will receive two glasses of wine and a cheese plate at each class.

Darin Bahl is more than just a wedding florist; he is the visionary behind the Tailored Twig brand. 
Sought after by clients and respected by fellow designers for his fresh, novel approach to floral design, Darin can often be found foraging for natural materials to create that hand tailored look for which he has become well known.  A product of the Midwest, Darin pulls from the fabric of his father’s farmland upbringing, which instilled a community mindfulness and an unwavering entrepreneurial spirit, fundamental in all his considerations.

From customized dinner parties to hand constructed welcoming packages for house guests the thoughtful nature of his handwritten, hand-picked, guest centered components set Darin apart. From an exquisitely personal wedding at an exclusive estate on Maroma Beach, Mexico, to an elegant union in the French Alps, the driving force behind Darin’s enthusiasm consistently comes back to the privilege and responsibility of honoring our guests and being more than just a florist.
