On Saturday afternoon we were delighted to welcome Dee Watkins, a lecturer in Floristry at Highbury College to our premises to give a demonstration entitled ‘Christmas at Home’. Dee showed us how to make an array of arrangements suitable for any home over the Festive season and inspired us with her innovative designs based around natural and recycled materials. At the end of the Demonstration all the displays were raffled in aid of Rowans Hospice

Floral Workshop & Bridal Flower Open Day

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

Hi Sally
 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 !!
Our Bridal Flower Open Day on Saturday was incredibly well attended and we were kept busy all day speaking with Brides and their families.
