Fleur Elise Bkln is a new Floral Design company started by Elise Bernhardt. With a decades-long background in dance and the performing arts, especially in site- specific performance, Bernhardt has studied floral arrangement at the Flower School, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and at the Sogetsu Ikebana school in Tokyo. She has created arrangements for numerous events- weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, galas and for individuals.
Fleur Elise Bkln arrangements are bespoke, completely individualized floral designs. Bernhardt starts with the container, what is available at the 28th street Flower Market - the shape, weight, textures and colors of the flora, and the environment in which the design will be seen, to create a completely "in situ" arrangement.
Elise was really sweet and laid back, would definitely recommend this class for beginners!
Technical and helpful in learning the basics. Elise was thoughtful and provided all necessary materials + flowers. A good way to begin understanding the fundamentals of design and how to incorporate that into your own style.
