So here we are on Halloween eve already. How quickly October has passed by. So for those of you who have not seen or heard about my exciting news: when at Fleurex during the gala dinner I was presented with my certificate for the becoming a British Master Florist. This is such a prestigious title to be given, along with initials to use after my name M.D.P.F.
The photo that I have used for this blog is of myself; Amanda Winsor and Victoria Lawrence-Turner. Amanda and Victoria are two florists that I met when I first started training at the Academy of Floral Art. Since meeting, and over the years we have become extremely good friends and had a fascinating floral flower journey during our studies. We have had some wonderful ‘road trips’ to various floral events; attended masterclasses with some of Europe’s top Master Florist’s; had emotional tears at various times, but best of all tears of laughter. It maybe the end of one such floral journey, but its not the end for flower fun and friendship.
This photo was taken after the presentation of our certificates by the B.F.A (British Florist Association). Victoria was presented with the cup and flowers too. This was because Victoria had the highest scoring marks in the theory paper that we sat.
The wedding season has slowed now, so I will have time to upload wedding photos that brides and grooms have given me. This will enable you to see what bridal bouquets and other wedding designs I have been creating.
Although I do not have any weddings to design flowers for this month, I am extremely busy with wedding consultations and dates are filling up very fast for next year. I am looking forward to returning to some venues too.
That’s all for this blog, is Happy Halloween. Stay safe and enjoy
