I am the creative visionary and highly sought after floral 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 26 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 high dollar 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.

Yes! The course is designed so you can learn at your own pace. In fact, we specifically filmed this online course so we could help people who don't have time to travel to in person workshops.
Just one week, April 2-9! Being available to support purchasers and answer their questions is important to me, so the course is only available when I have time, and the busy wedding season starts in mid-April!
Probably. But, if so, the price will be higher. We are so excited about launching this course that we are offering it at a special introductory price on this round only.
