Tom De Wilde: Little Shop of Wonders

We visited the Poelman & De Wilde shop in Belgium during our 2013 European Tour. It really is a “little shop of wonders.” Here are some scenes from our visit. Note the containers and the innovative displays of flowers not usually seen in the U.S. Tom’s shop was a huge influence on the design of our own Faith Flowers school and studio. You can come see our studio – and attend an intimate hands-on workshop with Tom – October 14-15. In the meantime, enjoy the photos!

Tom De Wilde: Cutting Edge European Designer

If you haven’t heard of Tom De Wilde yet, you probably will soon. Tom is one of Europe’s up-and-coming young floral designers. He is co-owner of Poelman & De Wilde in Melle, Bel-gium and an instructor at the Belgian Flower School for professional florists. (We will take a tour of his fabulous shop in our next blog.) Tom’s innovative designs are seen at parties and events, restaurants, corporate offices and art installations. Take a look at his creative and artistic work. We are delighted that Tom will be teaching an intimate hands-on work-shop at our studio October 14-15.
