Our History

PAFA was launched in 2017 with the mission to share the love and knowledge of the flower business while providing a creative outlet to our students and guests. Professional techniques, design basics and the history of the flowers are the cornerstone of all our classes and programs. Vicki Beuth, an FTD Master Designer and flower educator, has been teaching and talking flowers for 30 plus years. Most recently she has taught the flower program through Butler County Community College. Now with the opportunity for teaching within a flower warehouse, our Saturday design classes should be very exciting and informative. If you interested in a flower career or making something beautiful for yourself this is the school for you!
