AIFD Debuts Online Design Classes
The American Institute of Floral Designers has launched five professionally produced design education classes conducted online. The program allows participants to work through the course materials at their own pace, within a two-week prescribed time frame. Three of the courses—while available to anyone--were specifically developed as one of the five optional education pathways required for a design artist to enter AIFD's Professional Floral Design Evaluation system, with the goal of becoming a Certified Floral Designer and ultimately a member of AIFD, the association says. Courses include "Introduction to Floral Design," "Elements and Principles of Design" and "Design Techniques and Applications."

New Linen Options Offered by BBJ
"Chelsea" linen from BBJ Linen (in photo) mixes cerise and citron hues to create a springtime mood. The damask linen offers rich texture, with the extra accent of an iridescent sheer sewn in the background, the company says. The company also offers "Natural Yuma," with the rustic look of burlap but without burlap's scratchy texture and distinctive odor. "White Pearls" provides a custom look but without a custom price, the company says, thanks to its white background accented with iridescent beading.
