A lot of stuff going on at home so suffice to say my mojo left me a while back and not really seeing it coming back soon.  Will post some new stuff soon I promise.  In the meantime I will try to find some pics of things I haven't posted yet..

In the meantime, please bear with me

My day at Jane Packer Flower School

I had a brilliant time doing the one day Contemporary Flower course. We did three different arrangements and used over £150 of flowers. I found it hard at first but once I relaxed it was really nice to be creative in a completely different way.

The purple hand tied bouquet was a real strain on the hands but looked so impressive when finished. It even made it home on the train!

Here we are hard at it.

Bento Box

Another project from Saturday

This is very contemporary but I learned such a lot about flower preparation and care and how much has changed since I last did this. I will never be happy cuttingnoff the headsbofborchids though. Thisnone weights a ton and DH carried it home for me thank goodness.

My first arrangement.

Flower Challenge

Love these colours so wanted to show them to you to challenge you to make something using them.

Today I am in London at the Jane Packer School of floristry so this picture is quite apt. Will show you my version next week.
