Catherine Muller Flower School : Decoration in Opera Garnier in Paris

Last April, it was so great to have the privilege of going inside the Opera de Paris to create a big decoration with the Catherine Muller team.
We were a team of 7 florists for this big decoration : 3 from Catherine Muller Company, and 4 students prepared for the event.

During the first days of the one week course, Catherine Muller teached us many techniques for middle and big size decoration. The title of the course was "the intensive : special event cocktail" (see the calendar for the next courses and the corresponding program).

On Wednesday we started to prepare the different structures of the decoration. On Thursday we started to work on the flowers. Every Rose Avalanche was treated specially with 2 projection of colors, to make a special effect with the light, something metallic with a reflect of gold.

Friday was the big day : we arrived in the morning at the Opera : everything must be finished at 13:00 p.m. We install the flowers on the most beautiful stair ever seen in the world, and on the balconies.

The result is fantastic, the effect is totally different when all the flowers are together, seen from far away compared to what you feel when you prepare the decoration : it is very surprising to see this completely finished !
