Discounted Flowers for Students

written by


One of the things that we teach our students is the power of building networks within the industry.  Every Wedding or Event is a team effort and a great Planner and Designer knows that an event’s success rests on their ability to pull together a great team of Suppliers for their clients.  At the Academy we are no different and we are fortunate to partner with some of the best in the business to offer course enhancements to our students. Training on design software is one and example and now for our Australian students, we are able to offer the benefits of a partnership with wholesale flower supplier, Tesselaar Flowers.

Tesselaar is the leading wholesale flower supplier in Australia and they deliver to your door, Australia wide and we are so excited that our Australian students can now enjoy special discounted rates when ordering flowers for their projects.  Any of our students can apply for the discount but this is ideal for students of our Diploma in Floral and Event Styling course.
Of the partnership, Tesselaar says;

"Tesselaar Flowers provide Australia's largest range of highest quality cut flowers at competitive wholesale prices and we are happy to offer registered Australian Academy of Wedding and Event Planning students a further discount. We can deliver (usually in water) to most corners of Australia and offer expert customer service to help you choose the right products for your design needs. You can order online or over the phone and you are also welcome to drop in to one of our 3 flower markets, in Melbourne (Monbulk), Perth (Leederville) and Brisbane (Coorparoo)."

Our Diploma in Floral & Event Styling course includes many practical demonstrations from expert floral stylist Dee.  As these are delivered via video you are able to watch them over and over again, rewind, fast forward and pause; which means you can learn at your own pace. For our students, these videos are an unbelievable training tool as they allow them to complete practical projects and gain the knowledge and skills to work as a Floral Design & Stylist.  And now, you can order your flowers online, at a discounted rate so you can get all the practice you need.  Early in the new year, I will be back to show you how easy it is to order flowers online with Tesselaar and I will also share a video of my using my flowers to create one of the designs from the Floral and Event Styling course.
For current students of any of our courses, please contact me to find out how to apply for the discount and if you would like to learn more about the Diploma in Floral & Event Styling, I would love to hear from you too.  Phone 1300 854 200 or email me.
