Flower Arrangement Workshop

22nd February, 2023

On the 22nd of February 2023, Ms. Priyanka Khandekar conducted a Flower Arrangement Workshop at the Sheila Raheja Institute of Hotel Management (SRIHM) for the RDM specialisation students of TYBSc (HS) in the Housekeeping lab.

Ms. Khandekar taught the students various flower arrangements, including Moribana, which falls under the umbrella of Ikebana – The Japanese Flower Arrangement style, as well as Western Flower Arrangement style. The workshop covered the measurements of various elements in a flower arrangement, angles of placement for different elements, and the position of the arrangement in a room. A wide range of flowers and foliage were used during the workshop, including Zumelia flowers, Gypsophila flowers, English Fern leaves, and The Song of India stems. The students were given a chance to practise flower arrangement themselves under the guidance of skilled professionals. The key takeaways from the workshop were the knowledge about different flower arrangement styles & principles and the importance of measurements and angles in a flower arrangement. The students learned about the position of the arrangement in a room and the importance of the subject of the arrangement. They gained knowledge about the type of flowers and plants to use for a specific occasion, and how to design an aesthetically pleasing flower arrangement. The workshop was a great success, and the students were grateful to both the college and Ms. Khandekar for organising and conducting such a useful event.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Ms. Priyanka Khandekar for conducting such an informative and interactive workshop. Her knowledge and expertise in flower arrangement have given the students a valuable experience that they will remember for a long time. We also extend our thanks to SRIHM for providing the students with the opportunity to learn and practise the skill of flower arrangement. The workshop was an excellent opportunity for the students to enhance their knowledge and skills, and we hope to have more such events in the future.
