Earlier this summer, I attended a drop-in Flower Workshop at West Elm in London. It was run by the lovely Saima from The Cut Flower Project. And today, I’d like to share with you a few photos from the event. First of all, Saima talked the attendees through how to make a simple flower arrangement, which could either be made in a vase bought from the store or a rustic tin can.
Then, everyone chose a selection of blooms for their arrangement, including stunning peonies, tulips, hyacinths, gypsophila, craspedia, stock and alliums.
Here are some of the attendees in action, with Saima on-hand to help anyone who needed any advice.
There was such a great atmosphere in the store. And what a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon…
I was completely blown away by the magnificent window display at the shop! The amazing oversized flowers crafted in paper didn’t just stop me in my tracks, but also lots of passers-by in Tottenham Court Road.
Aren’t they incredible? And I couldn’t resist including a photo of the fabulous green wall, which is growing inside the shop…
