AIFD Symposium, Seattle WA 2017

Symposium- July 2017 - A time to reconnect with flower friends and make new ones, a time to learn new techniques, a time to work behind the scenes, a time to see innovative programs, a time to congratulate the new inductees to AIFD, a time to encourage those who tested to qualify for AIFD, a time to meet the many vendors that support the floral designers, a time to visit the sites of Seattle and be awestruck by the artistry of Dale Chiluly. I'm excited for next year - Discover 2018 in Washington, DC!
