TAKE THE FEAR OUT OF USING SUSTAINABLE MECHANICS

Does making the change to 100% sustainable and reusable mechanics sound scary? No idea how to start?

 

At the NCD Retreat we will teach you what mechanics to use and how to convert your business from FOAM to FOAM-FREE. Not only will our techniques save you MONEY (reusable!!) but by using WATER-BASED mechanics your flowers will be happier and fresher while eliminating toxic micro-plastics and waste.

LEARN HOW TO DESIGN FOR LUXURY CLIENTS

"I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS!"

"IT'S SO MUCH MORE THAN I THOUGHT!"

Dream words from clients- it's what we hope to hear and I have been lucky (aka worked hard!) to be on the receiving end. Whenever I design for a client, I take the time to curate landscapes of intention and meaning. 

Let me teach you how to tap into your authentic design voice, taking your florals from standard to extraordinary while keeping true to YOU.

PRICE FOR PROFIT NOT PENNIES

It's time to make you money! I will show you Behind the Scenes of how NCD prices our events and how we make profit! We will go into detail about my GAME CHANGER, the thing that took me from price haggling and burn-out to guaranteeing you make money while making full and thoughtful flower designs without compromise.

HEAR WHAT OTHER FLORISTS HAVE TO SAY....

MENTOR | ARTIST | TEACHER

Learning from [Nicole] in an actual educational setting, it would be insane! She has so much to give, is so generous, and doesn't gatekeep anything.

Natalia

Nicole is a true industry genius. It is through her instruction and eye that I gained such confidence in my design and installs.

Nereida

This investment is bound to be a priceless experience, offering a blend of beauty, innovation, and the chance to learn from the best in the field.

Kelsey

I think she can be of help to so many others looking to further their floral career. With her I can assure you that you will leave feeling a whole new way about your craft and art as I did

Dani

What I want to do for YOU...

  • Empower YOU to create and connect with your floral art
  • Provide YOU with tools, techniques, and resources to change the way you work
  • Teach YOU how to create an immersive experience and LEVEL UP your designs 
  • Connect YOU with our industry so we can support and create new standards

I'M IN! What's the schedule?

APRIL 30 : WELCOME DINNER HOSTED BY NCD

NCD will host a welcome dinner for attendees and vendors. A private chef will create an art-driven dinner menu for guests. Our goal will be to set intentions and prepare guests to create the following day. This will be an “all white” party with food art and sunset cocktails.

02

MAY 1 : WORKSHOP DAY 1 

We will start the morning with a sound bath, followed by breakfast and setting intentions for the day.

 

For the rest of the day we will create interior floral installs and bouquet design.

 

Finishing the day will be different artists discussing their inspiration, creative process, and business strategies in a complicated market.

03

MAY 2 : WORKSHOP DAY 2

We will start the morning with a guided meditation moving into creating wearable florals. Each attendee will take turns having their portrait captured.

NCD and attendees will move into the afternoon building a full exterior installation culminating in an editorial shoot.

A final dinner will mark the end of the workshop.

ADDRESSING THE "WHAT ABOUT"

Q

I see the value, but I'm not sure I can afford it.

A

We have created the highest-quality training that will truly add value to your business. After the Retreat, you will SAVE TIME, MONEY, AND STRESS in the future.

We believe in our Retreat, and don't think money should stop you from saying YES. We offer payment plans to get you there an on your path to sucess.

Q

I know some of what you're teaching already.

A

Our retreat is about LEVELING UP your design and business acumen. Our advanced techniques, especially sustainability, will give you SUPERIOR knowledge compared to general techniques known in the industry.

Q

It's hard to get away from my family and business commitments.

A

I myself am a mom of 2 young children, running my own business, and taking care of my friends and family. I GET IT. However, I know from experience how important it is to give OURSELVES time to get away, re-center, and take time to add new skills to benefit our businesses. When I invest in myself- it always has a return on investment for my business and family.

Q

There is a lot of Floral Education out there, why the NCD.

A

The value of hands-on experience by credible instructors is what sets us apart from online how-to's and other in person workshops. NCD will teach you the tools and techniques you need to apply to your work-- to bring your own informed look to the industry that stands out from the sea of basic event florals.

We will develop YOUR look, and teach you how to flush out new, innovative ideas of your own. I will not teach you how to be NCD- I will give you all my tools to be YOU.

Q

Can I use the photos and content for my OWN portfolio work

A

YES!! We are collaborated with renowned photographer Anya Kernes. At the conclusion of the event, a full gallery of images will be sent your way with publishing rights with appropriate social tags.

Furthermore, Anya will take a new, professional headshot for you to use on your website and marketing materials!
