This is something I'm looking for. I shall pop along to it.
Flower Council of Holland (FCH) and Florist at The Dorchester are providing free daily interactive workshops to visitors of the London Spirit of Summer Fair 2012, from Wednesday 16th to Saturday 19th May 2012.
Designer Florist at The Dorchester Wendy Black will show audiences how to arrange a specially designed Jubilee Bouquet (pictured), created by Black, to then take away.
The Jubilee Bouquet uses the nation's favourite cut bulb flowers: narcissi, iris, hyacinth and calla lily and also incorporates stephanotis, a plant originally used in the Queen's Coronation bouquet, which ties in well with the forthcoming Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The Flower Council of Holland is sponsoring all cut flowers for the workshops.
In addition to the cut flowers used in the Jubilee Bouquet, Black will also be showcasing other summer cut bulb flowers to inspire the audience for future floral creations.
Workshops run from 12.30 -1.15pm daily and there is a chance throughout the demonstration for Q&A. Attendance is complimentary and places do not need to be booked in advance.
Wendy Black, Florist at The Dorchester, says: "We are delighted to celebrate such a momentous date for the Queen with a bouquet in her honour. Spirit of Summer is always an exciting time for us to interact with its visitors and this year is that much more special, thanks to our Jubilee Bouquet."
Spring and summer cut bulbs flowers in vases are a simple way to add chic additions to the home and make ideal gifts for loved ones. For more information on how to care for cut bulb flowers and ensure their longevity, please see: www.funnyhowflowersdothat.co.uk.
