Floristry Workshop

Floristry Workshop

When bridesmaid Stacey reached out to me to ask whether we would be interested in hosting a flower workshop as part of Rachel's Hens, the answer was an obvious yes!! 

Rach has been shopping at Elma Park a while now and I felt like I knew her vibe pretty well. Natives were just coming into season, back when spinning gum was available (it is so sort after it's season always ends quickly), and I had recently met Dan at Kangaroo Hill Farm. Dan's native farm is just incredible and so close to us here in St Arnaud. From there I knew I'd need a florist to take the lead, Ruth having lived a past life as a florist working in inner city Melbourne was so obliging to help out. Ah... Fun fact, Ruth and Dan are now going steady! Absolute dream duo, just add match maker to my CV. 

To pretty up the space Sophie from Ardenflower Blooms put together the sweetest garden posies. Mel from Watts Cooking? baked the most delicious lemon sour cream cupcakes and behind the lens was Abbey from Abbey Tatt Photography. The afternoon came together seamlessly with our guests creating lots of incredible native bouquets, Prosecco and cake and then heading off to a local winery to continue the celebrations. 

Here's what Stacey had to say about it ... 

"Chloe pulled together an absolutely beautiful floristry workshop for our bride-to-be, Rachel.

We gave Chloe our budget and a few starting notes and she got to work. Her enthusiasm, attention to detail and love for supporting local small businesses were the perfect combo to create our event. All we had to do was arrive and enjoy the morning!

Thank you, Chloe!”
