The more intimate nature of the Diet FLOAT event meant that each instructor could teach each class just one time to the entire attending audience. Patty Sorell, CBA, shows the class how to do centerpieces without using helium.

Diet FLOAT's host hotel was literally on the beach in Miami, and breaks in the classes were scheduled so out-of-town attendees could enjoy some seasonal sunshine. Amy Veltman Cullen, CBA, shows off her company logo right before she slips into her bathing suit!

FLOAT likes to emphasis the artistry of non-round work in decor, and very few are better at it than Royal Sorell, CBA. Here Royal teaches large scale figure sculpting to the attendees.

Royal Sorell, CBA, does an amazing job with his large scale figures. While on the one hand he creates the iconic princess, he also creates a piece that included a subtle salute to his wife and partner.
