Samantha Wilson of St. Johns Flower Market taught classic French techniques in floral design at Fun with Flowers on July 14. Guests learned how to make gorgeous floral arrangements in a few easy steps, mastered the arts of color theory, proportion, shape, and texture, and created an arrangement of their own.

Wilson is coming up quickly in the floral industry. She is a brilliant, passionate florist who joined St. Johns Flower Market in 2020. She recently trained with Los Angeles’ finest French florist, Jean Pascal.

Fun with Flowers is an educational outreach program that is open to the public. Founded by the Garden Club of Jacksonville more than 30 years ago, Fun With Flowers has served as a model for similar programs offered throughout the United States. Attendees learn the latest professional design techniques, then create breathtaking floral creations during the hands-on portion of the program.
