Next week’s going to be such an exciting week! On Tuesday, we’re holding our Branding for Florists workshop and in the evening, the very first Flowerona Event is taking place, an interview with Kally Ellis from McQueens. Then on Wednesday, we’re holding our Social Media for Florists workshop.
Fiona, my co-host, and I are so looking forward to meeting everyone. Workshop delegates are travelling from all over the UK, plus as far afield as America, Canada, Abu Dhabi and Hungary!
As I’ll be busy putting the final touches to everything, I just wanted to let you know that this will be my last blog post for a couple of weeks. (I’ll be taking some time off after the workshops.) I’ll still be dipping in and out of social media though, especially Instagram. And I plan to post Instagram Stories next week, if you’d like to see behind the scenes.
Before I sign off though, I just thought I’d share with you some of the wonderful people who work together on the Flowerona Workshops. Pictured above, starting top left and clockwise, are co-host Fiona, chef Maddie, photographer Katie and Flowerona Intern, Steph. They’re all responsible for making the workshops such very special events. And I feel so grateful to work with such an amazing team.
Fiona‘s creative attention-to-detail is awe-inspiring! She styles all the workshops and here’s a peek at the mood board she created for the workshops next week. I LOVE the moody colour palette. And you may have noticed that recently my Instagram feed is echoing this…
Delicious, nutritional food is very high on the agenda at our workshops. Discovered by Fiona on Instagram (of course!) is the very talented Maddie and her food is always a huge hit with the delegates, especially the elevenses!
I adore Katie‘s photography’s style! She effortlessly captures our workshops so beautifully and especially the floral elements.
Our Flowerona Intern, Steph, works tirelessly behind the scenes looking after our delegates. Plus takes care of all the flowers…naturally!
So, that’s the Flowerona Workshops Team. And here are several other people who make the workshops happen…
We’re so lucky to have a fantastic flower sponsor, namely Graeme from Zest Flowers at New Covent Garden Flower Market. And we’re very excited that this year due to the workshops taking place in September, we’ll be benefitting from his amazing British flowers selection!
Since Day 1, we’ve held our workshops at the fabulous, inspirational venue, Brixton East in London. And we can’t thank Andy, the owner, enough for all his help. Nothing is too much trouble…
And last but not least…thank you so much to Justine who beautifully screen-printed our workshop goody bags, designed by Fiona. Don’t they look fab? One of my tasks over the next few days will be filling them with all the gifts from our wonderful sponsors!
So, we’re now just counting down the days and making all the final preparations for next week. The Flowerona Event with Kally is fully booked (it sold out within 3 days!), but there are just a few spots left on our Branding for Florists and Social Media for Florists workshops. It would be lovely to see you there!
