FLOWERADE – Hydrate Your Creativity with the Florida State Florists Convention

We just got back from the Florida State Florists’ Association‘s Mid-Season floral convention. The theme of the show was FLOWERADE – Hydrate and Refuel Your Creativity and the florists attending really did get refueled with creativity! Flower Shop Network also sponsored designer Anthony Swick, CFD, FSMD, during his Floral Mechanics presentation.

As you can see, there is a lot to learn for florists at your state conventions. It’s always good to come out and meet others in your industry, but also take home some much needed inspiration and FLOWERADE!
