Flowerona Reflects: blooms & bloggers

It’s so lovely to finally feel that spring is here with the temperature starting to rise a little in the UK.

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week…including buying these new (and very budget friendly) spring blooms to brighten up my desk. They smell absolutely beautiful…


My week

Monday, Wednesday & Thursday

Mainly stay-at-home days…writing blog posts for Flowerona plus guest blog posts, editing images and using social media (Twitter & Facebook).


On Tuesday evening, I travelled into London for a ‘Making your blog work for you’ event organised by Made.com.

It was a really great event with guest speakers Daniel Nelson from Heart Home magazine and Vivien Man from Affiliate Window.  They gave us lots of advice on how to monetise our blogs.

And it was lovely to catch up with fellow bloggers Carole from Dear Designer, Jo from Stylist’s Own, Zoe from My Interior Stylist and Kelly from Light Color Design. Plus meet Juliet from Creative Salvage.



On Friday, I went to a Press Evening to celebrate the launch of A Most Curious Wedding Fair.

It was lovely to meet some of the florists who are taking part in the event :

The fair is taking place this weekend at The Truman Brewery, Loading Bay Gallery, 91 Brick Lane, London, E1 6QL.

If you’re a bride-to-be, why not pop along? You’ll see some stunning floral arrangements created by the florists there, including this amazing design by Dora Kovacs.


And there are also wedding dresses, photographers, wedding stationery designers and cake designers.

I couldn’t resist capturing this wonderful flower adorned cake made by Katie at Pomp de Franc.  Isn’t it just so pretty?

So, that’s a round-up of my week.  I hope you have a lovely Saturday and I’ll be back tomorrow with lots of flowery links.

    The Curious Wedding Fair looks very interesting and I see there are some cake decorators exhibiting there that I do not yet know about – so thanks for the link Rona!
    I used to work with Paula Rooney! She is one of the happiest and most talented florists that I know – and has sunshine in her heart and soul – a winning combination for any bride.
    Have a lovely weekend Rona
