From no experience in floristry, I managed to create a beautiful vintage bouquet and boutonnière.” – Nilam
Our Floral Design Wedding Workshop, held in Richmond earlier in September was a great success and we are so happy that all of the participants thoroughly enjoyed it! It was completely sold out and we will be scheduling another due to popular demand, later this month! We also have a number of Floral Design Courses coming up in early October which we are very excited about.
In our September workshop, Carolyn presented a popular vintage-style wedding theme for Spring. For each season, Carolyn uses different flowers and during Spring the fragrance of the flowers is exceptional with the art studio transformed into a perfumed paradise.
The workshop was open to all skill levels and this time we had a range of experience. The students created a number of stunning arrangements, all of which they got to take home:
- Mixed spring flowers and herbs wedding bouquet
- Matching button hole and corsage
- Mixed Spring flowers in vintage style glass bottle/small vase
- Vintage-style table design ideas
One of our students, Nilam, commented that, “From no experience in floristry, I managed to create a beautiful vintage bouquet and boutonnière.” Nilam is also an avid photography and took the following photos of the incredible bouquets that were created during the workshop. Thank you for sharing these with us Nilam!
