I was full of good intentions when I started this blog. I didn't think it would be time to register for AIFD 2017 Symposium before I wrote again!  

To catch up a bit - Induction was incredible. The whole experience was fabulous.  The other members were so welcoming, everyone was so congratulatory. I took workshops with Leopoldo Gomez, Wendy Andrade and Beth O'Reilly. The stage presentations were so enlightening. The gala evenings had gorgeous decor. The vendor reception offered a chance to meet some of the folks on the other end of the phone and learn about new products. Gorgeous flowers  and designs with interesting techniques and stories were everywhere. Feel free to reach out to me via the 'Contact Us' page if you would like information about the American Institute of Floral Designers.
