【ディプロマ DFA1】



Dear Flower lover

Time for celebrating from YOU CAN DO IT to YOU DID IT !!!
The Dutch Flower Arrangement examination is not easy, technique, design and the time limit need a lot of practice to succeed this examination.

All the new fresh Dutch Flower Arrangers and the Advance Dutch Flower Arrangers got their Diploma from agriculture counselor Dr.Evert Jan Krajenbrink at the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Tokyo 10 April.
The students are so happy and I am so proud of them. One year study and a lot of homework – 100% passed !!

Since 1994 we organize the professional Dutch Flower Arrangement examination in Tokyo.
This diploma is recognized by the Netherlands government and the VBW national florist organization.
The next step can be our Advance DFA course and or join the EFDA Instructor course what I HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you are a teacher!!

You are welcome to join our newly Dutch Flower Arrangement course in our Yokohama atelier on June 16 DFA OPEN SCHOOL.
For info; http://dorien-flowerdesign.jp or e-mail; info@dorien-flowerdesign.jp or call; 090-4028-1427 Dorien.

Lets enjoy the flower power and learn new techniques and designs. Looking forwards seeing you in our atelier.

Love Dorien Roling



His camera is coming so very close to my arrangement!!

Are you too enjoying the Sakura petals dancing in the air​, it gives me butterfly feelings in my belly.😃

Last Saturday 31 March we took the last 2 arrangements videos 🙂 🙂 :)now Shimizu san is working with full power on editing and I am writing the text documents. This will be in English and Japanese.
I hope this videos will help you to make beautiful DFA arrangement by your self. I will ad a self check list so that you can evaluate your own arrangement.

You cant wait to see it I know >FROM 1 OCTOBER 2018 it will be ON-LINE.😃 Taking step by step photos of flower arrangement for my books is something total different then taking video!!!!

The video camera man has to do booth and taking video from all angles ..(his camera is coming so so so very very VERY close to me and my arrangement….) and he has to take step by step photos for the text documents.
I am very impressed by the skills of my just graduated fresh video camera man and director. This very exciting video project needs a great team spirit Hata Atsuko sensei EFDA DFA INSTRUCTOR was the director of the video project and closely watch each video shot from Tsuchiya Shodo kun – what is important and where to focus.
Standing up 4;00 am buying flowers at the flower auction market in Tokyo, driving to the atelier and put all the flowers in water with Chrysal. We love to take care of top quality flowers and make top quality DFA arrangement.
All the arrangement are exact as in the matrix of the international DFA examination, ready to put in the examination room be judged. 😃 and get 10 points!!?? We have a great job working with FRESH FLOWERS.
I am feeling blessed to be able to work with my great video crew.

As you can not wait to see the first video I can not wait to hear your comments!!! Will be continued.

Please come again🙏🇯🇵❤

Dear flower lover,

Smiling kids is the biggest reward you can get!!
Especially from the children who experienced the earthquake & tsunami in 2011 March 11.
Please come again 🙏 asked principle Mrs.Kajiya sensei after our first warm heart project.
The kids went school after this tragedy crying every day, but the flower power put a smile on their face again.
2011~2018 ❤️ 18 times we shared the flower power in Onagawa villages Tohoku, Japan.
The flower power also healed myself after feeling and seeing so much grief and sorrow.
My mother sended me 500 beautiful drawings from the children in Gouda, and my friend Jotika Hermsen from Sangha Metta Amsterdam sended me donations-this was the start of our warm heart project.
It was not always easy and cried a lot myself, but I learned a lot.
After food and a place to sleep mental care is a big issue.
Warm heart project created warm hearts ❤️ and many great friendships.
We finalized our project and like to thank you for your support and all the donations, together we could realize this beautiful project.
Togetherness and caring for each other makes all our hearts warm.
Thank you very much🙏🇳🇱❤️🇯🇵 For all the photos, videos and rapport please look on FB- http://www.facebook.com/ATATAKAIKOKORO

Love from our warm heart project members !!
Dorien Röling.
