23 May 2018


This May we are excited to be heading up to Perch Hill, the home of Sarah Raven.   Join us as we take inspiration from her garden and weave the seasonal flowers into floral arrangements.

With a passion for growing and using British flowers, we will demonstrate how you can create romantic bouquets and eye catching statement arrangements for weddings and events. In the afternoon, Sarah will teach you how to grow some of the flowers that have been used.

We are both inspired by seasonal offerings and will talk about how to carefully select the right flowers for the right arrangement. In the first session we will demonstrate our signature style bridal bouquet and discuss the finishing touches that create a wild romantic arrangement.

In the second session we will move on to demonstrate a large footed urn arrangement which would be a statement piece for any event. We will also show how you can work the colour scheme and design right down into a smaller scale arrangement which would be perfect for a dinner table.

In the third session – with Sarah – she will discuss our selected varieties and teach you how to grow some of the things we used in the morning arrangements.

The day lasts from 10.30am till 3.30pm including tea/coffee on arrival, morning tea/coffee break with home-made biscuits and a delicious 2 course lunch using fresh produce from the garden at Perch Hill.
