Welcome to the 2023
Shelley Simone Creative Workshops
Registration for 2023 is now open
Here at Shelley Simone Creative, we are passionate about designing, executing distinguished events, working with gorgeous designing elements and simply creating beauty. Our greatest passion, however, is working with people. We love encouraging people, listening to their hopes and dreams, and then empowering them to find tangible ways to achieve those dreams by sharing our experiences and knowledge.
This is the passion and purpose behind the Shelley Simone Creative Workshop.
LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE
People come, and they leave changed.
We have many people attend who have never worked with flowers before, and they leave knowing how to create something beautiful. Others who have been in the industry for years leave with a renewed vision and passion for their art. Individuals who didn’t think it was possible to start their own company left with a plan in place to start heading down the road of pursuing their passion. People felt released to dream big and believe anything can be accomplished. People felt empowered. Everyone leaves with new lifelong friendships and a community of support.

THE ART of FLORAL DESIGN
This is a hands-on, action-packed workshop created for the individual who wants to focus on floral design and learn how to create beautiful arrangements. We will instruct on how to order, process and care for flowers in addition to teaching the mechanics behind how we build our signature lush and organic centerpieces, bouquets and arrangements. We will fill the studio with a sea of the freshest seasonal flowers available and spend each day doing hands on learning. We will also discuss sourcing beautiful product, ribbons, fabrics, vases, supplies and other materials. Additionally, each workshop will also talk through business strategy and how to grow your business through website, branding, social media and email campaign so you can land your ideal client and increase your revenue. Students will walk away with images of their work for portfolio and promotional use.
THE ELEMENTS of EVENT DESIGN
A beautifully designed event goes beyond a pretty flower centerpiece and involves layers of textures and elements to make that event come to life. We will explore all of those elements and reveal the steps we take to design a cohesive event from start to finish. Each student will have hands on experience with building centerpieces, bouquets, large-scale event installations, table setting etiquette and breath-taking table design. Students will create a distinctive photo shoot that incorporates the different layers of event design. The photos from this photo shoot can be used to create a website, high end branding and a showcase portfolio. We will also discuss sourcing beautiful designing products, supplies, rental items, and other materials. Additionally, we will talk through business strategy and how to grow your business through branding, website, social media and email campaign so you can land your ideal client and increase your revenue.
REAL WEDDING WORKSHOP
This experience is for anyone who wants to go behind the scenes and be part of putting a real Shelley Simone wedding together. I will be teaching the different elements of event design, in addition to how we create our signature lush floral arrangements. Each student will have hands on experience with building centerpieces, bouquets, large-scale event installations, and over the top table design. Those arrangements will then be taken to the real wedding, and we will work together as a team to install all of the design details for both ceremony and reception, making the day extra special for a real couple. The photos from this wedding can be used to create a website, high end branding and a showcase portfolio. We will also discuss sourcing beautiful product, flowers, vases, supplies, rental items and other materials. Additionally, we will also talk through business strategy and how to grow your business through branding, social media, and email campaigne, so you can land your ideal client, price for profit and increase your revenue.
