Flower Arranging, with Tara Dixon of Specialty Floral Design

For me, arranging flowers to inspire and spark joy isn’t just a talent—it’s a passion. As a professional florist for over a decade, I have gained extensive experience with a variety of flowers. From creating simple bouquets to lavish displays—and everything in between—floral artistry truly is my calling. When people ask me what my favorite flower is, I tell them I don’t have one. I prefer to look at the design, consider the event or occasion, and then determine my favorite flower for that unique arrangement. An arrangement isn’t just individual flowers thrown together. It’s a complete concept that must work harmoniously to inspire and captivate. My favorite thing about being a professional florist is the opportunity to challenge myself and continuously learn about floral artistry. Whether I’m working with exotic tropical flowers or arranging a classic rose bouquet, my goal is to transform something that is already beautiful—the flowers—into enchanting arrangements. I regularly attend floral artistry classes to stay up to date on new techniques and trends. I attribute my artistry and passion for creating beauty to my mother. She was an amazing artist and I honor her memory with each and every arrangement. Class maximum: 20 students. Sign up here.
