On the 20th January we held the first in a series of workshops, starting with floral emergencies led by Simon & Victoria of Euphoric Flowers. Tickets sold out very fast and I know there were a few planners disappointed they couldn’t attend so I thought I would give you a little taster.
The evening started with Simon explaining how to make buttonholes using the appropriate florist tape and wire, as you can see from the photos we are concentrating very hard!
Simon and Victoria came round giving us all individual assistance, we then learnt how to transform the buttonhole into a beautiful corsage, of course there was a bit of healthy competition amongst us planners to see who had the ‘best’ one!
Simon and Victoria showed us how to make a hand tied bouquet before we were put into groups of 4 and timed to see how fast we could make a bouquet of tulips, some were naturally more talented than others!
The next workshop on wedding dress emergencies will be in April, again numbers restricted to 12, we are very excited about what we have planned for this workshop. Details to be published soon but if you wish to be put on a waiting list please email email@example.com.
With huge thanks to the talented photographer Lloyd Dobbie who captured the action!
Simon & Victoria were fabulous – I can’t believe that in such a short amount of time they could have shown us so much – whilst reminding me of the importance of a good florist – so we don’t ever have to do it!
