BUDDING florists can bring a little floral cheer to their home or office this Christmas, with tips and tricks from Brisbane florist Bouquet Boutique.
Bouquet Boutique’s creative director and floristry educator, Geraldine Hore, is sharing her years of experience and passion for floristry design in a series of private and group flower workshops at her New Farm store in November and December.
The first workshop kicked off this week, themed around ‘Floristry at Home’, and the next will be in the tune of ‘Christmas Floral Design’ on Tuesday, December 12.
Geraldine said fresh flower arrangements were popular this festive season, as more people delve into do-it-yourself themes for private events and parties.
“Summer is a great time of the year to add some natural colour and fragrance to your home or work environment, particularly because flowers and are in abundance this season,” Geraldine said.
“With a few simple tips, you can adorn a long table with low-lying foliage or brighten up your front entrance with some tall vases, while savings money on store-bought decorations that are likely to be out-of-date by next Christmas,” she said.
“Floristry really has become fashionable right now, so it’s encouraging to see more people showing an interest in making something magical for themselves or their friends this Christmas.”
Geraldine brings more than 10 years experience in the florist industry to the workshops, with her knowledge spanning native flower cultivation and traditional floristry design for events, weddings and corporate styling.
At Bouquet Boutique, she combines her greatest passions – creativity, nature and interior design – to produce outstanding floral visions that are at the forefront of the industry.
