Speed Skating, Flower Arrangement and Holland Lover‼︎

Dear Flower Lover

She was standing…and watching our flower arrangement booth. She looked slightly different….
“Who is that young lady standing there?”
I asked ….Hata sensei.
“I don’t know.” she replied.

That was our first meeting with the speed skating and flower arrangement loving lady.
Her name was Yoshimura Naho san and she visited the Netherlands several times to watch speed skating races. During that she got interested in Dutch flower arrangement and the Netherlands itself. She started to take lessons at Dorien Flower Design and passed the Dutch Flower Arrangement exam.
With this diploma she was ready to make her own bouquet for her wedding in the Netherlands in May 2019.

After the DFA graduation ceremony at the Dutch embassy she followed her dream and moved from Tokyo to the Netherlands. While working at a Japanese food company she continued studying flower arrangement in Diny’s flower shop in Gouda.

Yoshimura san kept following her dreams…
And her dream story didn’t end there, they are expecting…

Relax, Smile and Enjoy the Flower Power

Love from Dorien Roling Flower Passion Team.🇳🇱🌹

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.
