With wedding season starting to pick up pace and a high profile wedding taking place this weekend (!), today I’m delighted to feature 12 breath-taking bridal bouquets showcasing romantic, timeless David Austin roses. Let’s start off with one of the most popular, Juliet, above.
Today I’m delighted to feature an exclusive interview with Florence Kennedy of London-based florist Petalon, where she shares her inspiration behind her new book, ‘Flowers Every Day’.
Hello…well, what a wonderful month it’s been already! You may have seen on Instagram and Instagram Stories that I was in Italy last week attending an amazing McQueens Italian Masterclass. I’ll be featuring it here shortly. Today, I wanted to share with you the exciting news that I’ll be taking part in a workshop called The Floral Artist, run by A Still Life in York next month.
Launched in March this year, A Still Life is a fusion of creative workshops, gatherings and curated events held within the village of Crathorne and the City of York, North Yorkshire. This new brand is founded by Floral Stylist Kirsty Johnson and Vicky Trainor of The Linen Garden, pictured below. The workshops are delivered by Kirsty and Vicky with guest hosts from a range of creative industries.
In this month’s Houseplant of the Month post, we’re taking a look at ‘In & Out Plants’, as in plants which can be grown both inside and outside. Pictured below on the left hand side from top to bottom are Campanula, Balloon Flower, Cockscomb and Lily. And on the right hand side, Calla Lily and Balloon Flower.
This week’s video features an incredibly inspiring interview with Fiona Humberstone, The Brand Stylist. Fiona’s book, Brand Brilliance, is all about getting to the heart of what makes your brand brilliant!
In our interview, Fiona shares lots of hints and tips about branding for florists, whether you’re just setting up your business or have been working in the industry for many years…from choosing your floristry business name to how to compose proposals.
It’s the longest video I’ve ever featured and is just over 30 minutes long! So, grab a cuppa, a pen and a notebook…and settle down. It’s definitely a ‘must-watch’ for all florists!
