In the Victorian Era, a proper etiquette among the upper class in England was totally different to modern days one and those restrictions gave rise to flower language. At that time there were many rules and customs that no longer exist; People were expected to be more subtle: outright flirtations were prohibited, and questions about relationships were taboo. Most of it will fill a bit odd those days, but it was mainly based on simple good manners. Inability to express your feelings freely created a culture where secret messages were conveyed through the flower language.
Recently I discovered a fantastic botanical artist Carmen Almon and decided to share her designs with you as they are truly fantastic. Her botanical structures may look fragile but they are tougher than they look.
Flowers can make any event look fantastic. We all seen mesmerizing floral decor at weddings and flower shows, but what about smaller events? This post will show how a simple picnic in a park can be transformed into a glamorous event just by adding a couple of blooms.
A couple of weeks ago I had a pleasure of attending an exclusive floral event organized by WSJ+ in partnership with Robbie Honey a well known florist. At this event, Robbie Honey shared with the public the secrets of beautifully designed flower arrangements, and here I will present the best of them.
Fast gaining popularity British florist Philippa Craddock teamed up with the LSA vases in order to offer live flower arranging demonstrations and to celebrate mothers day in style, one of which I was pleased to attend. This fabulous event was full of fresh blooms and stylish glass creations.
Today I will share my experience with you.
For the last couple of weeks I was captivated by the idea of Veggie Vases. I saw quite a few cabbages, watermelons, pumpkins in this business, but pineapple was always forgotten. I though that it is a bit silly as the sweet middle part is the only edible bit in a pineapple and that’s exactly what you need to cut out to make a veggie vase. Below is my step-by-step guide of how to create this mini pineapple flower arrangement. It is really quite simple.
I am all about fresh flowers and flowers in general (call me an addict)!
Ok, ok, it is not a post dedicated to Parks or Walks, but it’s winter and I wanted a splash of flowers that we all missing so much. With festive spirit being packed up until next year we have slowly moved into that time of the year when we are waiting for spring and sunshine. Unfortunately, I am not a magician and so I can’t speed up time, but I can treat us to some nice flower photography. So enjoy and smile.
My other passion is guinea pigs. I had piglets for many years and they always managed to make my life a bit better. Those little balls of fur have almost magical powers to bring fun and spread cuteness. So I decided to combine two of my favourite things in one post in order to achieve perfection.
