FlowerstoEat.com Training Classes:
I have been creating fruit bouquets for family
events, and when the thought of doing this as a business came to me, I started
looking for formal training. Soon I found ‘Flowers to Eat’ on the Internet along
with a few other people . The Flowers to Eat arrangements had an appealing look
and techniques that distinguished them from other websites and suppliers. You
could tell those are artistically and thoughtfully designed bouquets. After
comparing the training details from several other places I decided to go ahead
with the Flowers to Eat. My communication from the beginning was very well taken
and answered by Nancy and Ruth. I loved working with both of them. I felt very
confident and comfortable with the whole idea of doing this as a business after
Ruth is a perfectionist, hard working, determined and very generous person who
would always teach you the best and guide at each step of the training. I liked
her training style which is very hands on and explaining the details on
different aspects of business, marketing, sales. They supplied enough details
and are open to answer my questions after I finished the training.
They helped me with some of the difficult questions where I wanted to customize
my products, how the sales would work, best ways to market the new business and
what to avoid, customer experiences, costing etc.
I would recommend this training to anyone who is new would like a head start.
The class I took at Flowers to
Eat has given me the skills to take my own fruit bouquet business to the next
level. Ruth’s passion for what she does is apparent, and her unbelievable wealth
of knowledge pertaining to every aspect of the business is sure to save me
thousands and thousands of dollars in the years to come. Not only did I learn
tips and tricks pertaining specifically to the fruit and chocolate, I also
learned many other easier (and less expensive) ways to run my all ready
operating edible fruit bouquet business. I would highly recommend any of the
classes at Flowers to Eat, and if at all possible, take them in Tampa as the
things you learn just from being in their kitchen are priceless.
Owner of Absolutely Edible,
Taking my first lesson at Flowers to Eat was the best
I'm in the process of opening my own business and the staff at Flowers To Eat
provided me with all of the information that I needed to jump start my own
Endeavour. Not only did they show me how to make the most beautiful arrangements
but also they shared all of their experience and know how saving me loads of
time and money; if I hadn't attended their training I'm sure I would have wasted
a lot of money in trying products and techniques that just don't work as well,
by sharing their knowledge on what works and what doesn't they saved me tons of
time and I'm sure I'll be able to be open to the public sooner than I expected.
I was really happy to know that they are also always willing to answer any
questions or explain anything further.
I hope I can take their expert class soon!!! Thanks again guys!!!

I started my business 5 months before taking the class
at Flowers to Eat. Within two months of working, I realized that I needed to
learn and sell more elegant and unique baskets. I began looking to see if anyone
offered classes. I found two classes, Flowers to Eat, in Florida and another one
in Los Angeles (which is where my store is located). After speaking with both
companies I chose to fly across the country to learn from Flowers to Eat. While
making my decision, Flowers to Eat was accommodating, kind and gave me clear and
specific objectives for the class, as well as creating a custom class for me
based on what I wanted to learn. They answered all my questions, told me exactly
what I would be learning, provided me with all the information regarding
supplies, techniques, suggested prices, organization suggestions and marketing
materials.Taking this class taught me new skills but also made me very confident
in the abilities that I already had. I left that class feeling that I had a
strong foundation in terms of skills and it boosted my confidence in my creative
ability to create new baskets in the future. Both Nancy and Ruth were extremely
kind and helpful, answered every question imaginable while I was there and
afterwards. I highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in learning
whether for business purposes or just for fun.

I recently moved to Spain and thought this would be a
great idea for a new business to introduce into their market but had no idea
where or how to begin. Ruth and Nancy gave me all the tools to begin and move
forward on my own professionally. I can proudly say that I make beautiful
bouquets and get rave reviews from all my customers. And, without exaggeration,
EVERY piece of advice that I was given on flower arranging is taken into
consideration with every bouquet I make and business planning with every
decision made simply because with time I realized they were right and it was the
best advice. Ladies you have it down to an art, thanks so much for

Flowers to Eat™ Highly Recommended!
Olivia and I have truly been blessed to have crossed the path of Flowers to Eat™ and its staff. When we first came up with the idea to venture into this business my wife thought it would be best for us to undergo some formal training. When we searched the internet your business was the first to come up and we started to consider taking the class but thought that was a lot of money for us to afford to spend. I dismissed the idea of the class but Olivia was persistent and had the faith that God would provide; I later joined the journey of faith in God's provision. God truly is amazing and He worked out the finances for us to attend that class at a very critical time.
We are truly grateful for your expertise in fruit
arrangements. The techniques and knowledge you provided were so instrumental in
our business venture thus far. Although the class was intense for the amount of
knowledge we received in such a short time, it proved so beneficial to our
understanding of the techniques and creativity necessary to offer such products.
One may think the upfront cost of attending such a class may be much, but we
dare say it is worth it because the money you will spend in ignorance trying to
make it on your own will prove much more costly. What we do appreciate also is
the support structure that you provide after the class; always interested in our
progress, always willing to give additional advice or answer any questions, even
being willing to assist in the ordering of supplies for us. We have certainly
appreciated the head start that attending this class has given us and the
confidence it has given us to stand on our own and develop our business as we
continue into the future. Ruth you have exceptional talent and your warm
personality compliments your work and what your offer to your customers and
students. Nancy is also an excellent inclusion to your business and very helpful
not only to the customers but the students alike.
Thanks A Million!
