Flowerona reflects: amaryllis & arrangements


I hope you’ve had a lovely week.  Only a few days now until Christmas Day!

Here’s what I’ve been up…

Out & about

Saturday & Sunday

Last Saturday and Sunday, I was very privileged to be invited by Javier and Tony of By Appointment Only Design to shadow them…and what an amazing experience!

On Saturday morning, I went with them to a client’s house to refresh some Christmas floral arrangements for a party that evening.  Then I spent the afternoon making up hand-tied bouquets for a wedding the next day.

The Instagram photos in this blog post are of the beautiful wedding flowers…



On the Sunday morning, I helped Tony and the freelance florists decorate a chuppah in a synagogue in north London, which you can see below.


Then I spent the rest of the day, watching, taking notes and photos as the By Appointment Only Design team styled one of the stunning banqueting rooms and a private room at The Savoy for the wedding.


I’m so looking forward to sharing the photos with you when I blog about it!

Monday & Tuesday

They were mainly ‘stay-at-home’ days.  On Tuesday, my friend Lisa Cox came round.  We spent the afternoon stock-taking each other’s blogs and discussing new ideas for 2013.

Then in the evening, we went to Surbiton for a Christmas drink with some wonderfully creative ladies and fellow bloggers…Selina Lake, Torie Jayne and Caroline Taylor.  It was such a fun evening.

Wednesday, Thursday & Friday

Mostly ‘stay at home’ days…writing and scheduling blog posts for this and next week, dealing with emails, writing my guest blog post for Garlic & Sapphire and submitting feature ideas to magazines.

On Friday, I scheduled all my blog posts for next week.  So, even though I’ll be taking a few days off, there will still be new content on Flowerona every day over the festive period.
