Art in Bloom DC 2024

March 14, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - March 17, 2024 @ 4:00 pm

Art in Bloom DC returns to Anderson House for a fourth time on March 14-17! This popular event fills our historic headquarters with dozens of floral arrangements inspired by the art and architecture of Anderson House. Art in Bloom provides a unique opportunity in the nation’s capital to stroll through the museum at your own pace, viewing interpretations of specific artworks, furnishings and architectural details rendered in a floral medium by some of Washington’s most creative and innovative floral designs.

Visit during regular viewing hours to explore the floral arrangements, tour the museum, and participate in special demo sessions with featured floral designers. And join us and the premier local florists who created the displays for an evening reception exploring these floral artworks and the collections that inspired them.

Anderson House is the exclusive venue for Art in Bloom DC and is co-produced by the Institute, Margo Fischer of Bright Occasions, and Ashley Greer of Atelier Ashley Flowers.

Saturday, March 16 at 2:00 p.m. — Presentation by Sarah Khan Event Styling

Inspired by her background and upbringing as a first-generation child of immigrants, Sarah developed an eye for creating beauty at a young age. The conglomerate of fading techniques of Pakistani and Indian artisans of days old took a new life as Sarah used her skills to create distinct event experiences in the D.C. metro area. As the Creative Director, Sarah looks to every client as an opportunity to be a visual architect with a desire to create timeless beauty.  Over the last decade, Sarah Khan and her studio have designed exquisite weddings for the creme de la creme of D.C.’s social scene. Her aesthetic and design concepts have caught the attention of coveted publications, lifestyle brands, celebrities, and politicians. Khan’s creative team has found itself featured in digital and print publications in Harper’s Bazaar Bride India, South Asian Bride magazine, Modern Luxury, Washingtonian, and television features on Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise and the full series of Season 2 of Full Bloom on HBOmax. Sarah’s approach to the creative space is to focus on self growth unaltered by the opinion of others. She attributes any success she has to Islam, its principles in business, and the discipline it requires to move forward every day to do your best regardless of circumstance.

Sunday, March 17 at 1:00 p.m. — Hanakubari Method presented by Keith Stanley

In this demonstration I will explain various methods of Hanakubari. For those interested in sustainability in design, this demo would be of interest to you. Hanakubari is a technique using natural materials for flower support that integrates the material in the design, rather than covering the mechanics. We’ll discuss techniques to create these designs and the most suitable mechanics.
