Come and get your Christmas craft on

Now that the weather is turning colder #shame, and the leaves are getting decidedly browner #nice, it is time to start thinking about the big C….yep Christmas is just around the corner and if you are the crafty creative type you are in for a treat this year. Come and join me at our studio in Battersea where we will be running a series of wreath-making workshops

The session will address wiring techniques, examples of finished wreaths and the various styles that can be achieved using a variety of foliage, fir cones, cinnamon, whole oranges or apples. Materials will be provided and I will provide step-by-step demonstrations, as well as personal tuition to produce the perfect, truly unique holiday wreath for your door
Refreshments and morning pastries will be provided and participants will of course be able to take their work home with them to proudly display to friends and family. The wreaths should last right up until Christmas

The workshops, running on Sunday 3rd, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December,** from 10.30-12.30pm, cost £60 per person and are based in our creative home at the New New Covent Garden Flower Market, in all its twinkling and festive glory, a truly magical place! They would make a unique seasonal hen party or just a fun day out with friends and family

To book your place on our wreath-making workshop, or enquire about other workshops please contact Liz on liz@blueskyflowers.co.uk or call 07973 601 045

Dartmouth House wedding venue

One of my most favourite places to flower for a wedding is the wonderful Dartmouth House.. set in the heart of Mayfair, it has a lovely history and is currently the home of the English Speaking Union. But it is also a truly fabulous venue in which to get married

From the magnificent staircase that takes you to the first floor reception and ceremony rooms to the enclosed and private terrace, it is a stunning building that is all yours once you step over the threshold

Here is Charlotte with her bridesmaid and sister after getting married to Sean last year

The landing on the staircase is the perfect place for a welcome urn and the panelled Churchill Room is ideal for saying your vowsceremony flowers by blue sky flowers at dartmouth house
