I am the creative visionary and designer behind Holly Heider Chapple Flowers. I am also an inventor, and my "egg" and "pillow" product line with Syndicate is changing the industry. But I'm most proud of my accomplishments as "the Flower Mama," a title given to me by my students. As a leader in the florist industry, I have taught floral design around the world and throughout the USA. I am known as an instructor for my practical knowledge, gained during my 28 years of wedding and event experience, and for my passion for helping my students and empowering anyone who wants to be a successful florist. Including you.
As a mother of seven who started her business in her kitchen, and as a designer who has worked on trendsetting weddings and in the White House, I'm excited to invite you, wherever you are in your floral journey, to enroll in our life-changing course. I want to educate everyone who wants to work in this industry, but I can only reach so many students in person. That's why I filmed Gathered and Styled, so we could learn together, wherever you are in the world.
"I absolutely LOVE Gathered + Styled. Holly and Evan filled this course to the brim with the most valuable and pertinent information possible. They take you behind the scenes of their business and share EVERYTHING about how they work with their clients and run their business--all the while teaching it in a way that is comfortable and lighthearted, like sitting down for coffee with friends. Gathered + Styled is worth its weight in gold. I've been in the business for close to 20 years and learned so much from the course! "
"I love, love, love Holly’s design aesthetic. But even more importantly, I love that Holly (particularly on Instagram) often talks about staying true to ourselves. When we start out it is easy to fall into the trap of trying to mimic another designer’s work instead of learning to improve on our own aesthetic. Can’t tell you how impactful her message is and how much that has helped me as I have built my own reputation (albeit on a very small scale!)."
"I REALLY had a hard time deciding on whether or not to purchase the course because I was afraid. Afraid that I wouldn't get enough out of it to justify the cost. Afraid it was geared mainly towards new event florists and I would be retreading old territory. Afraid that I would be wasting money that frankly I don't have too much of to lose. Then I listened and watched. SO much information and it was just the first section. It was perfect. Methodical and sensible and professional advice from a true business person speaking directly to me. I have run a successful retail florist for 10 years and had finally decided that I wanted to grow and make profitable my event work. Time management and profitability has always been challenging, and so much of what you shared in the course speaks directly to that. "
"I'm so glad I invested in the online course! It's given me confidence and been a source of inspiration!! Holly is a flower hero and shares her knowledge graciously. I sing her praises to every designer I meet. I would love to see universities teaching floral design incorporate this into their curriculum! I'm not sure I've ever had such a thorough explanation on the value of our services and how to price accordingly. Kudos for raising the bar!! "
"The cost held me back, but then when I thought of how much Holly was giving, I didn't think I could find anyway of gaining all that knowledge for twice the price. That is what made me able to take the leap! And I loved all the classes! I love how Evan and Holly do it in interview style and the banter they have."
Gathered and Styled is broken down into 16 lessons, including 8 hours of video content, supplemental notes, checklists, and recipes. Plus, Holly's husband Evan provides complete specs for large installations like chuppah and arches, among others.
