Join Ariella Chezar to learn the the best methods to use her signature vessel, the compote!
A signature of Ariella Chezar, the compote can be challenging, but is an effective container with a shallow depth and footed base. It is ideal for a romantic style which enables flowers to look their most natural. During this class, students will make a compote design in the signature Ariella style using fresh flowers from the New York Flower Market. Ariella will teach the best techniques to create a lush, romantic and natural aesthetic compote design including how to appropriately use a flower frog. This is a special opportunity to work with a true master of color, style, composition and shape.
This series of classes is intended for beginning-level students who have an interest in learning foundation level skills in floral design. Skills include how to correctly handle and care for flowers, how to use a floral knife and clippers, and the conditioning of flowers for optimal vase-life longevity.

Among the rarest of the colors for flowers blue, is “suggestive of expansiveness and continuity.” This particular azure blue “…reassures us with the promise of a new day,” according to the Pantone Institute. Olivier, having grown up under the azure blue skies of the South of France, is the perfect choice to work with this color palette which is both delicate and masculine, soft and subtle. Olivier’s designs grace many of the best hotel lobbies in New York City — his sense of style is reflected in every arrangement that he creates.
