Our Classes

Anchor 2
  • How far in advance should we book a wedding florist?
    It’s never too early to get in touch about your wedding, but we recommend having a few details figured out before you do (your wedding date and location, specifically). Typically, our couples reach out around 8-12 months prior to their event. We're also more than happy to help if your event is much sooner, so don't be shy!
  • Do you have a minimum order size?
    In order to provide high quality service during our peak season, we only serve a select number of clients. We have a $3,500 minimum on all wedding flower orders during May-October. Our average client spends $5000-$7000 on their wedding flowers. For private events (showers, birthday parties, holidays) our services have a $500 minimum.
  • Is our wedding too far away? Do you travel?
    We offer delivery, setup, and breakdown services in all of Connecticut plus the Hudson Valley and Westchester, New York regions. If your event is just outside those areas and you’d like to work together, reach out to us!
  • How will I know what my flowers will look like?
    We provide each client with a vision board including a color palette, flower images, and inspiration photos to give you an idea of what we have in mind. We also provide detailed descriptions in your proposal. If you wish to see an example of any of your wedding pieces we are happy to create a mockup at your final consultation for an additional fee.
  • Do you have items for rent?
    Yes! We have an ever increasing inventory of rental items including candles, ceremony arches, lanterns, and more. Check out our Rentals page for more information
  • Do you offer floral preservation?
    Yes! We've been preserving and working with dried flowers since our business began in 2015. It's our pleasure to create keepsakes using the blooms from your life's most special events. We can create resin preserved pieces as well as framed options and are always expanding our offerings. BONUS! Every wedding client receives a $10 credit per $1000 spent on their event to put towards preservation services.
  • How do I sign up for an workshop/class?
    Choose the event you’d like to attend from our list of available options and click “Book Now” to make your reservation. A calendar will show you what dates and times are available for that class. Choose your session date and time and click "Next" to complete your details and make payment. Your session is not finalized until you make payment, and receive a confirmation email. Make sure to check your spam or promotional folder if you do not see an email from us.
  • Can I sit with my friend?
    Yes! We'll make every effort to put you and your group together. You can convey your group to us in 2 ways: - you may reserve and pay for your entire group under 1 reservation. Please list attendees names in the Notes section - Individuals can reserve and pay separately and then link to the group by identifying other attendees names in the Notes section We cannot guarantee seat changes upon arrival.
  • When do you post new classes?
    We release our class schedule quarterly (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall). There may be months where we have a busy event schedule and aren't able to offer as many classes as others so be sure to check our facebook or instagram for annoucements.
  • Can kids come to classes?
    Our classes (unless otherwise specified) are not recommended for children under 12. Kids under this age may find some of the techniques difficult for their fine-motor skills. As well, we may be using utilizing tools such as hot glue guns, sharp knives and clippers, chemicals, wire and other materials so please use your best judgement when considering whether to bring a child to the class. Anyone attending under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and must purchase their own ticket to attend.
  • What is your Cancellation Policy?
    Due to the perishability of the materials used in floral design, we have a structured cancellation policy. Cancellations made more 48 hours in advance of class will be issued a full refund of the amount paid. Any cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance will be issued a class credit for the full amount paid, toward a make up session. Class credit must be used within 6 months of original reservation date. No shows will not be issued a refund or class credit. To cancel your session, please email kate@fountainheadfloraldesign.com. Please allow 3-5 business days to process your refund. PLEASE NOTE: IF A CLASS DOES NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT RESERVATIONS, THE CLASS MAY BE CANCELLED. Fountainhead Floral Design reserves the right to cancel any session due to unforeseen circumstances. All registered guests will be notified, via email, by 9PM the night prior to the event (when circumstances allow).
  • Can I bring my own food and drinks?
    Yes! Guests are welcome to bring any food or beverages they like to class. We provide ample table space as well as refrigeration if needed. We also provide any necessary cups, plates, napkins, cutlery and wine openers. Certain events may have special items such as free coffee or treats from one of our community partners. Check out our facebook and instagram for more info We ask guests to please clean up their food and beverage after class and recycle accordingly.
  • What's included with my class session?
