I hope that you all saw my last post about where I have been hiding.
I have been a busy bee setting up my new floristry business.
I have been cleaning up my workspace, buying lots of great vintage pieces for my designs and making business plans.
I still have a mountain of work to do but it is happy work with a happy end in sight.
I will have a tonne of before and after photo's of my workspace but I still have a long way to go. It is Mothers Day here in Australia next weekend so that is my debut onto the world stage.
MAYFLOWERS VINTAGE FLORIST will be officially in business.
I am so very fortunate to have so many wonderful supportive friends and family who have been spreading the word and I have been inundated with orders.
This makes me HAPPY :-)
I have so may ideas to share but I will keep my ideas under wraps for a little while........it's a secret ! lol
So NOW I will share this weeks design from class.
We are focusing on bridal work at the moment and I am learning some really beautiful designs.
This week we wove our own vine wreaths which was lots of fun.
The wreath was then used as a base for a bridal bouquet.
I LOVED this design !
It would be perfect for a rustic French country or shabby chic wedding.
I chose all pink blooms and green toned foliage this week.
The fragrance is amazing !
I bound the stems with simple twine to blend in with the wreath.
My daughter kindly modelled my design for me.
She was a little shy about revealing her petty face because "I have no makeup on Mum !!!!"
(Oh, the life of a teenager is soooooo hard !)
One day my beautiful girl will carry a pretty bouquet of flowers.
But today it was just for fun.
So that is what has been happening on my end. What has been happening on yours ? I feel like I have been absent for months not a couple of weeks. I have found lots and lots of vintage goodies on my travels and I cannot wait to show you all.
