Elvamay Floristry Program (Since 1947)


In 1947, Elvamay School of Floral Design was established in California by Ms. Elva May McLeod Devlin(1898 - 1981).

Ms Delvlin was a professional florist in Fullerton, California. At her age of 49, she decided to retire from the flower shop business and founded Elvamay School of Floral Design in order to pass on her experience and give proper education access to those who would like to join the floral industry. Professional floristry education was rare in the forties and Elvamay School was one of the very few.

Elvamay Floristry Course is an accredited vocational training with internationally recognized professional qualification. We specialize in training professional florists, with emphasis on commercials design techniques and profit-making in floristry business. Students learn through an intensive curriculum which teaches design, buying, make-up, selling, and profit-making.

Over the past 52 years , Elvamay School has trained many thousands of versatile florists who work in flower shops and other floral design outlets. Students come from all over the world. Many of the graduates in time become designers or educators through their further efforts.

In 1987, Elvamay Floristry Program has its professional training spread over the Pacific coast and now has her Registered Instructors/training centers in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland China.
