wake up & smell the roses

floral workshop

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to a workshop at sofa.com. I picked flower arranging with Daisy Doodle Dandy because the idea of walking away with an arranged bouquet of blooms sounded very inviting indeed. They run so many other creative workshops as well from up-cycling to screen printing to pinata making that there’s aways something exciting happening there. All workshops are held upstairs at their Chelsea Harbour showroom (a midst their gorgeous sofas) and there are both daytime and evening ones to choose from. It was such a lovely way to spend a morning, swimming in flowers, chatting to other ladies and nibbling on Pearl & Groove cakes.

This was what I brought home. I enjoyed that it looked Autumnal but not obviously so. I felt it was looking a bit drab until I introduced yellow to the colour palette which gave it a little lift. Then I suddenly thought how lovely these colours would look with my ‘Into the woods’ wedding stationery so being the geek I am I photographed a few bits with the flowers and decided I definitely was a fan of the combination. Just a smidgen of Autumnal wedding inspiration there for you…not that you asked for it.
