Last Nights Workshop Photos..

Last night, we had another 7 lovely ladies to the shop for our Christmas table arrangement workshop. Their task was to create the above, a circular design of Roses or Germini, Spray Carnations, Hypericum and beautiful foliages. There were also big bowls of oranges, walnuts, cinnamon and vases of ting ting and branches to enhance the decoration!

The stand, full of Sorbet Roses, Blowsy Blooms and Amaryllis, is waiting for everyone to arrive!
The sumptious Grand Prix Roses we used for our focal flowers.

Everyone did a beautiful job! Even with the same materials, they all turned out differently - brilliant first attempts! We hope you all enjoyed yourselves - if you need any help with more table arrangements, just let us know! 
ps. Don't forget that everyone who attends one of our workshops gets 10% off of their first order of sundries. xx

Break the mould! A guide to Buttonholes & Corsages.

Buttonholes don't have to be boring & consist of a Carnation and Leatherleaf.. they're a great way to express your personality at any event! Not only for Weddings, corsages look amazing at parties and dinners - and can be worn on your wrist, bag, shoes or in your hair.. anything is possible!

Anything can be included too - not just flowers and beads! The above designs are of Anemones, Conkers and Quail eggs for a country walk design and red spray Roses, Blackberries and Acorns for a cornucopia of Autumn... Vintage lace and buttons, as well as berries and bark also look fabulous.

If you don't want to be too bold, a boutonniere is the perfect design. Smaller than a buttonhole and consisting of just one or two blooms, they're lovely on a jacket for lunch out or a more casual occasion.

..and of course, the classic rose buttonhole is timeless. Teamed with another seasonal or favourite bloom, (here we have used Hydrangea,) they ooze sophistication.

Or why not go for something completely different - floral jewellery. We can create any shape or colour necklace to compliment your outfit perfectly.. you'll certainly stand out from the crowd! xx
