Because Holly Chapple intentionally returned to her Chapel Designers roots in 2017, the NYC workshop was planned as an intimate gathering for 20 designers just as it had been at the first CD NYC workshop 7 years prior. Mother Nature had a little surprise in store for us as a full-throttle blizzard blew in just one day into the workshop. Definitely a trip we won't ever forget! You have plenty of time to get acquainted with your new friends when you're snowed in!
We were thrilled to have 6 accomplished Chapel Designers joining Holly Chapple and Ariella Chezar as speakers for the 2017 workshop. All 6 were real working florists running profitable and successful businesses while showing leadership in the floral/event design industry and providing never-ending support to Holly and their fellow CDs. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate these women than to have them share their wealth of knowledge with others. Together with Holly Chapple these Chapel Designer teachers had 100+ years of combined experience.
