I recently completed the basic floral design distance learning program. I just wanted to say hats off to you for putting together such a great video course. And hats off to Elizabeth (lilybloomers) for being such a great coach. I wasn't quite sure how I would like a distance learning program as I am truly a hands-on person and prefer to have someone right there with me to watch and ask questions. But between your excellent video demonstrations and Elizabeth's thorough evaluations, comments and suggestions, it felt like I had a personal instructor and coach which combined to make a wonderful learning experience. The basic course covered so much more than I expected which makes me all the more eager to take the advanced course. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to do that in the near future. And if I ever get to Portland, you can be sure I will stop by to personally meet both you and Elizabeth! Thanks again, and keep up the great work! You are truly an inspiration! Diane

Thanks so much! It was an incredible experience and I truly feel that I was taught by the best! If you ever need a recommendation or a "testimonial" I would gladly attest to the wonderful teachers and the great program that you have. I would someday like to have my own shop, but I realize that I need a lot more experience and knowledge so I will continue with some of your advanced courses and would love to do that in person. I will see what my schedule will allow and sign up for a class this summer. Thanks again for all your help and constructive criticism....it really helped me a lot. This is not goodbye....but will see you soon! Cindy

I loved the Wedding Specialist course and learned so much, having the DVD's for reviewing what I’ve learned through the FDI is an added plus. I'm very thankful to FDI for offering the online courses, and of course the awesome teachers.  Teresa

I'm thrilled and honored to receive the certificate, its such a beautiful and gorgeous design. I'm glad that I have chosen your school for my floral advancement, and thank you again for your expert guidence.  Cristina

It's been two years since I had my class at your school and life was not the same after that. I am writing to share with you how successful my first business venture is. I decided to open not just a flower shop but a party rental and event company. To date, I have the nearby hotels around me that have us as their preferred vendor. Our presence has made a mark in the industry with the quality of work we do. Thanks to all you have imparted to me and for the inspiration of "doing something you love"!"  Dani

Last year, after doing a lot of research on different schools, I enrolled for the Basic Floral Design online classes with FDI, and I must say it is the smartest thing I have ever done for myself. They are so truly interested, they are easy to get a hold of, so positive, so inspiring - and as AIFD they have incredible knowledge and a respect for the craft that shines trough in everything they do. After one year of Basic Floral Design I landed an internship and because of them I am never in doubt that I know what I am doing, simply because I know I am trained by the best.  If you are going to choose a school, this is the best one you can find. Meredith

I continue to be extremely grateful for the empowerment that all you taught me has given me. You filled my floral design toolbox with countless treasures for exploration and floral design fulfillment. I simply love it! Karan

I had an amazing time in your Distance Floral Design Course! I learned more than I ever thought I would! It has made my love for flowers even greater, and I have gained a greater appreciating and understanding for floral designers and all that goes into making beautiful arrangements! So thankful I found this course to help me through this rough time in my life, and thank you for all your help and understanding along the way! I look forward to furthering my floral design education and can’t wait to see where this career path takes me, when I am feeling well enough to work again! I hope to make it to your location and meet you all in person! Shannon

Hi Leanne! Just a quick note to tell you I'm LOVING the basic floral design class and am wondering if there's room left in the advanced course that immediately follows?  Robin 

Before any more time passes, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed my first experience at the Floral Design Institute. I took the Basics of Floral Design class last week as a personal gift to myself. I love arranging flowers, so I wanted to see if this might be a career path. Kathy was our instructor. She was excellent - made the class informative, fun and a beautiful. I learned a lot about the process of floral design and how hard florists and their staff have to work to produce the beautiful creations we give and receive. I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thank you for an awesome day!   Brenda

I want you to know how very much I enjoyed "flower school"!!  Your institute is a top notch, first rate organization.  Previously in my life I have attended various other vocational schools and even taught dental assisting at a post secondary school in Las Vegas.  Your school far exceeds the standards and quality of education provided at any other school I have ever been associated with.  Everything from the curriculum, the enthusiastic talented teachers, the incredible arranging supplies, to the delightful work space is absolutely perfect!   Kathleen

The Floral Design class at Las Cruces High School in Las Cruces, New Mexico, would like to thank you for providing such a great educational tool for our classroom. We watch your video's every Friday (we call them “Leanne Friday’s”) and other occasions when we deserve a break. Again, we thank you for being with us in our classroom! The students wanted me to tell you “We Love You Leanne!” Jessica

As I take my next step in my floral career, I wanted to let you know how thankful I am for the opportunities you have given me. Contributing to both my personal and professional growth, I would like you all to know how much I appreciate what you have helped me accomplish thus far. Bryan

Today was the first day in the flower shop! I go back Monday and Tuesday too! The owner let me jump right in and start designing. The owner stated that my designs were beautiful, look nice and full and held well during delivery due to my weaving technique. It was a grand day and I look forward to doing it again on Monday and Tuesday. Shelia

Finding FDI was the best thing that could have happened to me! After being home with my kids for 10 years, floral design had been a love and a hobby of mine for many years. As my kids all went off to school I had to opportunity to figure out what I really wanted to do career wise. To be able to pursue my education in floral design from my home was a dream come true. And to be able to get such a great education and continued support was more than I could have hoped for. Thank you!   Kimberly

I have thoroughly enjoyed the videos and the kind of communication your school is known for. I feel that my status as a student in your distance learning means that I am cared for by the school. This is not an easy thing to accomplish via distance learning. You all do a fabulous job making this an intimate and a positive experience for the distance learner. Bottom line, I really am enjoying your school. You all are doing a fabulous job serving those of us in the distance learning community. Bravo!  Gwen

I had always assumed that I just lacked the intrinsic knack for floral design, but was determined to give my daughter the flowers she wanted for her recent wedding. I closed my eyes, jumped off the cliff, and signed up for your Wedding Flower Boot Camp class. The instructors were so much fun, and I felt so successful even after just one day that I was able to approach my daughter's wedding with confidence! I'll definitely be back for more classes. Who knew you could be approaching fifty before you realized what you really loved doing? I think it's never too late.  LuAnn

Thank You, your institute has given me a well rounded approach to floral design. It has also given me a foot forward in this industry far exceeding my expectations. I could not have gone as far as where I am today without your excellent instructions and hands on approach to design. Furthermore, your institute is my lifeline if I have any questions about Floral Design ,and or questions pertaining to the Floral Industry. Many thanks to Leanne & Dave Kesler and your wonderful staff for their hard work, and dedication to the Art of Floral Design. Tomasi

Thank You FDI for the incredible training, which inspired my design confidence!  I just landed a great design job!   Kim

Hello Leanne,  First of all I just want to say "I love you" .  Thank you so much for your video sessions.   I've been following you in years.  I even went to take some classes, with you teaching approximately 4 years ago. I just want you to know that I appreciate all your floral videos.  You have given me so much knowledge and support throughout the years. You are the most talented, beautiful person on earth next to Martha Stewart :).  I wish you continued success. Your forever avid fan, Amy

I am very excited to reveal the opening of Pretty Petals floral shop!!! I actually did it!! I am so excited and want to welcome you all to a Grand Opening of my little shop..... Now that I have made my dreams come true.. I am so excited and can't wait for the warmer weather and more beautiful flowers!! Corinne

Many thank yous for the excellent, comprehensive, interactive, enjoyable and exhausting class ! Two days later Tess and I are still synthesizing and mulling over the information and ideas you two and Kathy imparted, as well as the content and practices gleaned from the group conversations. Meg

Thanks for everything. I want you guys to know that I have learned so much. Every class I've taken with the Floral Design Institute has been excellent in every aspect. Keep up the good work. Terri

I just wanted to tell you that the entrepreneurs weekend was absolutely fantastic. Alisa and I learned SO much! My mom and I have been planning and dreaming for some time, and now I think we have the information to get us started. Eden

Leeann I just can't praise you enough for he inspiration you give to me. The designs are always so beautiful and unique. My dream as a little girl was to be a florist. However Motherhood and finances came to interfere. Now at 67 I enjoy your emails and the encouragement that I can actually put together a centerpiece for a holiday and make it look beautiful too. Thanks you for the encouragement to continue to please others and myself. Shari

Absolutely wonderful! I signed up for classes on a whim and couldn't believe how it changed my life. The instructors were professional and practical. After I finished the beginning classes I kept going back for other classes and bought the educational videos. Raven

Thanks again. You and David (and the Floral Design Institute) are the best investment in my future that I have ever made!!!!! Tracy

I just wanted to send you a quick note and let you know how much I LOVE the brand new monthly wedding DVD's series. I've gotten so much from them and I look forward to ordering them each month. Roberta

I have really, really enjoyed these classes! You are the best! Tanya

Dear Leanne, I've been watching and re-watching this fabulous series of clips for some weeks mainly because of you, your manner and evident love of floral art is so accessibly presented, the projects, interesting and well thought through, easily repeated by the enthusiast or professional. I eagerly await further demonstrations, and wish you every success in doing what you so obviously love! Kelly

What a wonderful experience I had attending your class. You can’t imagine how much you have helped me and in so many ways. Kathleen

I just want to take a moment after finishing my module 7 (almost half of the course!!) to let you know how I'm feeling about this great distance learning experience. I am very happy with the course and although it is challenging, and a bit stressful, what I'm learning and experiencing is really, really worth it all. I have been learning a lot and feel that these lessons are exactly what I was looking for. Ana
