Green Mountain Florist Supply welcomed Holly Heider Chapple on Friday, March 4, 2016.
Holly Heider Chapple joined Green Mountain Florist Supply for a day of business coaching and hands on design time to an enthusiastic group on March 4th.
Here are some of the creations from that day:
Holly started her home based wedding and event floral design studio, Holly Heider Chapple Flowers, 24 years ago. The studio was created in Holly’s home to enable her to create beautiful weddings and events for clients while raising her children. Holly and her husband Evan are proud parents of seven wonderful children. Holly’s studio services weddings and special events in the Washington DC area. She is also the founder of the Chapel Designers, a group of designers she brought together from around the world to connect with one another, broaden their resources and establish relationships with others in the floral industry. Holly has shared her expertise through workshops and conferences in Russia, Australia, London, New York City and California. Holly, along with the several of the Chapel Designers, designed the flowers for The Knot Dream Wedding 2014 at the Biltmore Estate.
In 2015 Holly Chapple was chosen as a Martha Stewart top wedding floral designer. In addition her work can be seen in numerous print and online publications. On July 30th 2015, Holly and Evan purchased a 25 acre farm that they named Hope. Hope Flower Farm is a flower art farm and Bed & Breakfast. Designers and educators from around the world will be gathering at Hope Flower Farm for educational workshops and art installations. Hope Farm is also available for weddings, special events and photo shoots.

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year for 2016.
Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure.
Serenity is weightless and airy, like the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate a balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
WHAT IS THE PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR?
A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.
