Our warehouse is currently ‘buzzing’ with Church flower arrangers calling to collect their Easter flowers. From Carnations, Chrysanthemums, Lilies, Lisianthus and Roses to Daffodils, Iris, Narcissi and Tulips our cold store is full of flowers in shades of cream, white and yellow.
Amidst the Easter preparations we managed to fit in a demonstration last weekend led by North Tonbridge Flower Association Chairman Gill Smaggasgale. Gill has been a customer of ours for several years, ordering flowers via our overnight courier service, and happened to let slip one day that she had recently qualified as a Demonstrator.
Her demonstration entitled ‘Listening in Colour’ was based upon song titles and during the course of the afternoon Gill created designs depicting the following songs – “Chicago My Kind of Town”, “Summertime and the Living is Easy”, “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”, “Moonriver”, The Girl from Ipanema” and “It’s a wonderful World”. Whilst arranging Gill also entertained us with the origins and story behind each of the songs.
We have had some lovely feedback and comments from those who attended and it was a most enjoyable way to spend a Spring afternoon as the following photographs show
In the midst of preparing for our Bridal Flower Open Day last week we also held another of our ‘tailor made’ workshops which came complete with cake and candles for one of the ladies who was celebrating her birthday that day . Some of the group had attended one of our Christmas workshops and had asked us to arrange a workshop covering hand tied bouquets and table arrangements with a Spring theme. The group who have now named themselves ‘The Flower Fairies’ had such an amazing time they have already asked us to lay on another workshop for them in September.
Following the event we were delighted to receive the following email and as you can see from the photographs a great time was had by all
Just wanted to say thank you for this afternoon we had a great afternoon of fun, and loved our tied bouquets and arrangements. Please give our thanks to Rebecca for her patience and clear instructions, she doesn’t realise what a talent at teaching she has. We are already looking forward to the next time, it’s always a pleasure coming up to see you all what a team eh ?
Love Hilary and the flower fairies !!
