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
