The Foraged Collective 

March 9th-11th, 2020

Charleston, South Carolina

Toni and her team at Roadside Blooms are thrilled to host their 3rd 'Foraged Collective', an ethereal inspired hands-on floral workshop, here in historic Charleston, South Carolina.

 

Join us as we engage in hands-on, meaningful instruction from Alicia & Adam Rico of Bows and Arrows Flowers. These two are some of the most dynamic and beloved designers of our time.  

 

With the help of Luke Wilson of Luke Wilson Events, we have curated a luxury experience for our guests. From the beautiful rooms at the boutique Restoration Hotel to the florals, to the food, no detail has been overlooked. Designers of all levels are invited to join this intimate workshop atmosphere which is limited to 23.

 

This 2 day intensive workshop will focus on building large beautiful installations. From conception, ordering, installation and troubleshooting, they will cover all bases to help you take your Clients' visions to the next level. Designers will construct multiple installations at an amazingly beautiful, historic, and private venue just outside of Charleston called Runnymede. All will be captured on film by the amazing Clay Austin Photography. His images literally take our breath away.

Roadside Blooms gets much joy in creating a magical and meaningful experience for all of the designers who participate. Read testimonials from our 1st Foraged Collective workshop from 2017 which featured Ponderosa & Thyme, Bows and Arrows, and Jennie Love. And others from  the 2nd Foraged Collective workshop with Sweet Root Village in the summer of 2019.
