| ||Variety of Artworks |
California Flower Art Academy is pleased to introduce a variety of floral arrangements that were actually designed and made during lessons at our classroom. These arrangements were made by our students and instructors. In order to educate our students so that they can be floral designers, we offer hands on training of ONE ON ONE instructions which is a semi-private lesson.

Students with no previous experience in floral arrangements can start from Introductory Trial Budget Program. For more information, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
| ||Japanese Ikebana-II |
Most people who learn Ikebana at our school are entry level students. All the arrangements introduced in this page were made by our students (or some by graduates) under the instruction of our Ikebana teacher. Therefore most arrangements are beginner level.
Recently we can find some floral artists who learn Ikebana arrangements in addition to European (or American) flower designs. Some people (who already earned skills of making European floral designs) find a different kind of beauty in Ikebana arrangements. Only because they already learned regular kind of floral arrangements, they are in a position to make a fair evaluation about Ikebana's graceful beauty.
Those floral artists often make very creative and unique floral arrangements by way of mixing/blending European style and Japanese style of floral art. As a matter of fact, we can find some Ikebana artists who adopt European style of designs in their Ikebana arrangements. This fact means floral artists are giving influence each other on the way of flower arranging between European style and Japanese style.
Namely learning Ikebana will help you change your style of floral designs and you MAY create quite unique designs, which definitely contribute to expanding your portfolio of your floral arrangements.
If you are interested in learning Ikebana arrangements, why not join under mentioned AFFORDABLE programs that are designed for beginner students who have no (or only little) experience in Ikebana arts:

| ||European Design-II |
Among various styles of floral arrangements, European design is considered very elegant, graceful and full of profound beauties with its reasonable size. European floral arrangement is widely used not only for professional floral decorations for a variety of events such as weddings, funerals, holiday decorations, birthday arrangements as well as various corporate arrangements but also for interior home decorations. Namely European flower arrangements can be used for business and hobby as well, which is good for you to enjoy your artistic floral life.

| ||Wedding Design-II |
Among our students who learn wedding floral arrangements, we can find some people who want to implement DIY (Do it yourself) for their own weddings. Namely in order to minimize the amount of budget for wedding flowers, they want to learn wedding flowers and make floral decorations for their own wedding.
This is a pretty tough project. Most of them are supported by family members who also help make wedding flower decorations at their wedding ceremony and party. Some students join the lesson together with their fiance, in which case they MAY plan to have their own floral shop in the future. After their wedding is over, they MAY help make wedding flowers for their family member(s) and friend(s).
In order to earn skills of making wedding flowers, students need to earn basic skill of fresh flower arrangement. For this purpose, many people start from Fresh Flower Arrangement Basic Course offered by California Flower Art Academy. After completing this course, they join a program specializing in wedding flowers introduced introduced below:

| ||Bouquet Design-I |
It takes more time to make bouquets than making regular floral arrangement. Namely it usually takes about two hours to complete one bouquet. Although it is a time consuming project, you must be satisfied with your own bouquets when they are completed.
The most common way of usage of bouquet is what is called bridal bouquet or wedding bouquet. There are three major types of wedding bouquets. The most popular one is round bouquet (also known as composite bouquet), cascade bouquet and also teared bouquet. The one held by a bride is called hand-tied bouquet. Bouquets are often displayed in a bouquet holder instead of being held by a woman.
You can also find MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WEDDING BOUQUETS here.
The beauty of brides are always enhanced by bouquets and in this sense bouquet is one of mandatory decorative items at weddings. The slide show in this page shows a wide range of bouquet which were actually made at the classroom of California Flower Art Academy. In this page various types of bouquets are introduced. Some of them are held by a woman and some are displayed in the bouquet holder.

Of course you can display a basket arrangement when decorating your home as a small interior arrangement. The slide show in this page shows various types of basket arrangements.

| ||Wreath Arrangement |
The most popular wreath is a garland type wreath although easel mounted type (standing wreath) is also widely displayed at various occasions. The small wreath is a garland type which is usually worn around a neck like a lei in Hawaii.
Large type of wreath is usually made using floral foam and such wreaths are mounted on easel. This type of wreath is often found at the entrance of a party or ceremony or at the reception of some events. Easel mounted wreath is also popular at funeral ceremony. In addition to garland type and easel mounted wreaths, we can often find home decoration wreaths mounted on Front Door and the Wall over Fireplace.

Easel Mounted Wreath (Standing Wreath or wreath mounted on wreath holder)
| ||Funeral Arrangement |
While lots of people pay special attention to wedding floral arrangement when learning floral designs, they are apt to forget about learning funeral floral decorations. Quite frankly speaking funeral floral arrangement is as important as wedding decorations. The reason behind this is that there is very high demand for or funeral flowers.
On top of that the business of offering funeral floral decorating services is quite stable. Regardless of season, they are obliged to hold funeral ceremonies as far as "Man/woman is mortal". In this sense we are unable to avoid funeral ceremonies for which funeral flower decorating services are mandatory.
For those who would like to learn funeral floral decorations, California Flower Art Academy offers Funeral Floral Decoration Course. In order to join this special course, students must have already learned basic designs of European (or American floral arrangements). If you have no previous experience in floral arranging, you can join Fresh Flower Arrangement Elementary Course where you can learn basic designs of European arrangement.
| ||Vertical Arrangement |
There are various types of vertical arrangements among which beginners can pick up their most favorite ones that can be easily made. Compared to horizontal arrangements, vertical arrangements usually need much less space which greatly helps designers display in various locations. Although horizontal arrangements do not use line flowers, when it comes to vertical arrangements, you can create a variety of atmosphere by way of making the best use of line flowers.
When making arrangement to decorate your home, you can display it on various tables such as dining table, console table and cocktail table. Also on the mantel over a fireplace, vertical arrangements can be easily placed. If you have opportunities of displaying your arrangements in a office, reception counter may be one of the best locations where visitors to your office always enjoy viewing beautiful floral arrangements.
We often find vertical arrangements on the front desk of a hotel and also the cashiers counter of banks and restaurants. In the elevator hall of a hotel, we sometimes find a console table on which beautiful vertical arrangement is displayed.
Slide show in this page shows some of vertical arrangements that were designed and made during actual lessons at California Flower Art Academy.
| ||Horizontal Design |
When learning floral designs, most people are usually recommended to start from vertical arrangements. As the skill of floral designing get advanced gradually, they MAY have interest in other type of designs such as horizontal arrangements.
Horizontal arrangements need a little bit wider space for displaying, which is one of reasons that some people do not like this type of decoration. Especially those who live in a small house have only limited space for placing a large dining table or cocktail table etc.
If you have sufficient space in your home, why not challenge making horizontal arrangements ? When using horizontal arrangements for floral business, one of typical cases is wedding decoration. On the head table at a wedding party, gorgeous floral arrangement can be displayed, which definitely enhance not only the beauty of a wedding place but also enhance the atmosphere of wedding party.
Enjoy the slide show introducing some of horizontal arrangements that were designed and made by California Flower Art Academy.
| ||Triangle Arrangement |
As the name of this design shows, triangle arrangement is made in the shape/form of triangle. Some people call this type of design "Triangle Arrangement". Common type of triangle arrangement is made with fresh flowers. However some people do this arrangement using artificial flowers such as dried flower etc. For your information, we uploaded examples of triangle arrangements using fresh flowers on the slide show in this page.
California Flower Art Academy offers a WIDE RANGE OF PROGRAMS from which students can make a choice of their most favorite course according to their taste, purpose, goal and budget as well. For more information, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
| ||All round arrangement |
All round arrangement (or all around arrangement) is one of styles which can be recommended for entry level students who have recently started to learn floral designs or have not yet earned sufficient skills. One of the main features of this type of arrangement is that this way of decoration can be enjoyed from any kind of angle. Namely it is necessary to make all around arrangement so that the shape looks similar no matter from which direction it is viewed. Needless to say the shape of this arrangement is round like a ball when viewed from the top of design.
The height of this type arrangement is not very high unlike vertical arrangements. Due to its shape of this arrangement, line flowers are not used for this particular design. All arrangements introduced in the slide show were actually designed and made at the classroom of California Flower Art Academy. You can enjoy viewing several examples of this arrangements that are uploaded on the slide show of this page.
If you love flowers and would like to learn floral arrangement, following beginner programs are recommended:
| ||Parallel Arrangement |
Parallel arrangement is one of quite unique ways of floral decorations which can be seldom found in our daily life. This arrangement is not very easy for beginners to make. As seen in photos uploaded on the slide show of this page, it features several vertical line flowers that stands in parallel each other.
If this arrangement is displayed at the entrance of high class restaurant or at the reception of wedding party, the atmosphere of the place can be definitely enhanced.

| ||Easy Arrangement |
They often say "Simple is the best". When it comes to the floral arrangements for entry level students, this is true. They don't have to make a big deal for making floral arrangements. Especially when enjoying floral decoration for domestic interior purpose, it is not necessary to spend lots of time and money.
They can minimize the budget which is very good to continue the hobby of floral arranging as a lifetime hobby. One of examples for simple and easy floral arrangement recommended to novice designer is "glass container arrangement".
In this case, the container used for the arrangement is cube glass and many of them are transparent.
It is possible to buy a small glass container for a very affordable price ranging from $3 to $5. Go out to your garden or flower shop for buying small pieces of fresh flowers you like and arrange them in the container in the style you like. You can use floral foam or if you don't want to use it, make arrangement without it.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org

| ||Cup Arrangement |
If you can't find any good vase or container for arranging fresh flowers, you can use any kind of daily items in your home such as tea cup, coffee cup, mug cup or teapot whatsoever. There is no rule for daily tiny arrangement regarding not only the choice of flowers but also the type of containers. The photo in the slide show some of examples of simple and easy floral arrangements using a mug , teapot and coffee cup.
Enjoy making your own floral decoration on your dining table or cocktail table.
| ||Wine glass decoration |
There is no rule for the choice of container when making floral arrangement. Some people use simple cube glass container for arranging flowers. If you don't find any suitable container or vase, you can use even a wine glass as a substitute of a floral arrangement vase.
As you know, the size of wine glass is usually quite small. However you can still place flowers in such a instant vase by choosing small size flowers and minimizing the amount of flower materials. The photos in the slide show of this page shows typical example of floral arrangement made in a wine glass.
| ||Heart Shape Design |
When sending a floral gift to your boy friend, it is a good idea to make a Heart Shaped Arrangement with which you can express your deep love to the recipient. This arrangement is a little bit difficult for a beginner to make. Many of heart shaped floral arrangement are made with artificial flowers and some other ornaments.
You can practice how to make it so that you can give this valuable gift to your boy friend on his coming birthday. The recipient will be very impressed with this hand made gift and he must highly appreciate it.
| ||Green Leaf Design |

| ||Topiary centerpiece |
Topiary is a round shaped floral arrangement but it is different from pomander. Although both topiary and pomander are popular as wedding floral designs, topiary is not a wearable arrangement and it is never held by a bride. The similar point is both are in the shape of a ball. Topiary is arranged in the pot or vase. The photos show some examples of topiary that is a mandatory floral decoration at a wedding party.
Students who learn floral arrangement at California Flower Art Academy

| ||Chair decoration |
Most of people engaged in floral designs must be familiar with table arrangements. How about "chair arrangement". Have you ever heard of this word ? Maybe answer is No. Strictly speaking this arrangement should be called "chair back arrangement" or "chair back decoration". As the name shows, floral arrangement is done with the back of chair. If the floral decoration is made for line of chairs at a wedding ceremony, this is often called "Aisle Floral Arrangement".
All chairs placed in the line are decorated with flowers and it looks very beautiful. Apart from weddings, chair back arrangement is found in the dining room where you MAY find chairs, the back of which is decorated with flowers.

Therefore the place of displaying floral decoration is business related places such as entrance hall of a hotel, banquet room, office reception counter or event hall as well as a restaurant entrance whatsoever.
