The flower arranging party

Flower arranging party

Helena wanted to treat her friends as a way of celebrating her special birthday and asked if I’d come round to her place for a flower arranging party.  I was delighted to do so.

Helena had set up two tables.  One in her dining room, and the other in the adjoining conservatory.  She invited six friends.  I arrived before Helena’s guests and set out buckets of wrapped flowers, aprons and scissors.

There was lots of chatter and laughter as Helena welcomed her friends to her home.  Everyone gathered on the sofa and chairs in the conservatory, ready to find out what was in store.  I talked the ladies through the design that they were going to create – an arrangement in spring pinks and purples, supplemented with garden greenery in vintage vases.  Over the course of the afternoon we shared lots of flowery tips and savoured the most amazing cakes that Helena and her girlfriends had made.

Stunning arrangements

As you can see some stunning arrangements were made.

Helena sent me a note (and the photographs in this blog) after her party.  This is what she said:

“I wanted to do something different for my birthday this year and had the idea of asking Julie to do one of her flower arranging workshops at my house with a few of my friends. I had been to a couple of the more formal workshops that she organises and thoroughly enjoyed them and knew that she would do a great job if I hosted one. Some of my friends were experienced flower arrangers and some had never done any before. Julie designed a session that all of us could enjoy and follow and my friends who hadn’t done flower arranging before were surprised at what they were able to achieve with Julie’s advice and guidance. Julie provided all of the materials and presented them beautifully making it a really special occasion. Each of us finished with a vase arrangement that we were able to take away. I am now waiting for another reason to host another one!”
