First time ever!

The Floral Hostess is offering an extraordinary experience!
April 4-6
In the French Quarter, New Orleans

Known as “The Floral Hostess”, Maura Whalen is taking her floral classes on the road partnering with interior designer, Katie Scott of Houston, Texas.
Attendees will enter and work within the extraordinary and renowned La Laurie Mansion - a home on every French Quarter tour
but one that has never before been opened to the public.

Much more than a floral workshop -
it's a unique French Quarter EXPERIENCE!


Enter the historical (and once haunted) La Laurie Mansion where you will tour and experience the glamorous interiors with designer, Katie Scott. This home has not been opened to the public since the mid 1800s! Once inside, you’ll gain insights into the home’s past, its present and its future and become a part of the story as the power of flowers work their magic.

You will partake in hands-on floral lessons with Maura Whalen, owner of Casablanca Floral and her team. You need not have any experience to partake - just a desire to be pampered while getting your fingernails dirty and a love for playing with stunning flowers in a most extraordinary place.
