October 2018 Program

Susan Chambers presents “Re-Imagining Luxury for your Holiday Table”

Her aim is to deconstruct the hottest trends and bring these ideas, from magazines and social media, right into the homes of clients! Susan will demonstrate how to decorate a table with bud vases by choosing the right flowers and foliage; how living plants in glass containers can be botanically beautiful; how using clippings from your garden and placing seed pods at each setting becomes organically elegant. She will also turn a wreath upside down to become a green chandelier suspended over your dining table that will last from Thanksgiving to Christmas!

Susan grew up in Northern California – she is a former fashionista (working in high fashion & couture in the United States and Australia) who moved from couture fashion to flowers. She studied under Master Florist Dundee Butcher at The Russian River Flower School in Healdsburg CA and at the McQueen School of Flowers in London, England. Her business, bloominCouture, located in San Francisco, is an active member of Slow Flowers and is committed to using seasonal and locally sourced products when possible. Check out to see her work and her passion for finding beauty in organic materials and creating the perfect bespoke arrangements. A special thanks to Ann Gazenbeek for finding this terrific florist for our October program
