Kathleen Quo Vadis – Quo Vadis Flowers

I would like to take this opportunity to recognize Maureen Sullivan Design School. I am writing this letter regarding my life changing experience learning about floral design from Maureen and her staff.

I walked into her store to order flowers and noticed she was offering floral design classes. Having no Experience about floral design I was curious and asked about her introductory course. I took the intro course and was astonished that I would fall in love with flowers. I learned so much from Maureen that I decided to keep going and take all the courses she offered.

Maureen taught me the basic structure of design but most importantly to be confident and creative. We used the most beautiful flowers and the vases were chosen with thought and care. She encouraged us to find our own style.

I started my home studio 2 years ago “Quo Vadis Flowers”. I have been very busy making custom arrangements but specialize in wedding and events.

I am forever grateful to Maureen’s design classes. Thank you Maureen and staff.

After completing my training at Maureen Sullivan Floral Design School I started my wedding and event business November Blooms.

My business has taken me to all different events and venues all over the lower mainland and the Okanagan.

I’ve done weddings with 20 guests to over 200 and although at times it’s been challenging and stressful I have never regretted a minute of it, I mean who doesn’t want to work with beautiful flowers!

Maureen, Kathleen and Trish are extremely helpful, generous and very encouraging and their shop is gorgeous and very welcoming. This school is a MUST for anyone who is thinking of a career in floral design.

The Maureen Sullivan Floral Design School set me up with a foundation of technical skills and an irreplaceable mentorship in my career as a floral designer.

Their supportive and encouraging approach gave me the confidence to take the tools I was given in their program and develop my own unique style and brand that is Floralista today.

I highly recommend their program for those looking for a comprehensive education in floral design.

The skills that I gained from the Maureen Sullivan Floral Design School are invaluable. Not only was I provided with the foundation of floristry, with best practices, techniques and tools but also the encouragement to pursue my dreams. The classroom is positive and organized with access to a wealth of knowledge through each instructor and a variety of beautiful flowers and vessels to design with.

Flowers are my passion, so relating to other like minded colleagues was amazing, with some becoming close friends. It is inspiring to watch Maureen create and observe how passionate she is about flowers and design. Everything I mastered throughout the program has given me the foundation for each new floral challenge I have taken on and allowed me to develop my own style.

They have offered me continued support and provided me opportunities and projects in the floral world which I would not have had otherwise. I am so thankful for the skills and confidence the design school has provided me and would highly recommend the program and the Gilligan Girls!
