The Yardley Flower Co.’s Floral Design Class.

We have been visiting the 3rd grade classes throughout the Pennsbury school district for over seven years giving floral demonstrations. During this class each of the 3rd grade students were provided with guidance on how to design a centerpiece by one of our designers & given the flowers & supplies needed to make a flower arrangement. Each year the program has evolved from teaching one class at one school to all the classes’ throughout the district. Last year we integrated a floral design competition were the top students were selected from each elementary school. These “Best in Class” students were then invited to an evening design competition at Fallsington Elementary School. Family & friends were encouraged to come and watch their children in creative action. Awards were presented to each finalist as well as top awards for the top three students – “Best in District”.

We are excited to be able to present a program such as this throughout the district. We feel it a valuable learning experience for the students. We have found that both boys & girls alike take this experience very seriously. Our program exposes the students to a process that they may have never considered or experienced before. The look & excitement on their faces while they are “designing” their own arrangement is priceless.

The roots of our program date back many years ago. At that time, we had greenhouses in Yardley, Pa. The greenhouses aka Martelli's Greenhouses - students would visit the greenhouses & take a tour. The greenhouses have been gone for some time now

To continue this tradition with the children of our community, we have take our program directly to the schools & will continue this for many years to come!
