Christmas door wreaths have been appearing on many a door in our neighbourhood lately, including ours! I’ve been very fortunate to attend three workshops this week and above is the design which I made from scratch at Ruth from All for Love’s workshop at the Garden Museum in London.

This week on my YouTube channel I shared Part 3, the final part of My Career Story. It covers from 2011 to 2019 of my Flowerona journey and all the various aspects of my career in the floristry industry as a writer, photographer, blogger, trainer and presenter.

Out & About
It’s been such a lovely and very sociable week! In addition to the All for Love workshop, I also attended workshops with Mary Jane Vaughan Flowers and one with Blue Sky Flowers and made two more Christmas door wreaths.
It’s been such a pleasure having chance to not only do some floristry, but also to mingle with other people. Yes, it can be pretty lonely sometimes working on your own from home. So, I was thrilled to be invited to attend these workshops this week and each design that I made was different, using different materials and different techniques. Thank you so much Ruth at All for Love, Mary Jane Vaughan and Liz from Blue Sky Flowers!
I also paid a visit to one of my very favourite florist shops, Zita Elze‘s shop in Kew. It’s become an annual tradition, when Kew Sparkle is taking place. And it was so lovely to catch up with Zita and her team. Look out for lots of photos of Zita’s magical festive floral designs on this blog in the run-up to Christmas. Plus, in this coming Tuesday’s YouTube video, I’ll be sharing with you footage of inside and outside Zita’s shop.
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s round-up and get chance to recharge your ‘floral batteries’ today…
