It's not a big surprise anymore that I'm a big flower-lover. When I got the invitation from Bloomon to join a workshop near my hometown, I immediately said yes! I brought a friend with me who really had no experience with floral styling. New experiences; check!
When we came in at Cantine, we were offered a seat with a piece of banana cake and natural flavored water. So delicious! Not so long after, the flower fun could start. First we got some information about the way of working at Bloomon. It's really no lie that their flowers come straight from the growers and stay beautiful for more than two weeks. I've tested it already! If you cannot keep your Bloomon bouquet for so long, you are doing something wrong. :-)
Professional tips were given by the floral stylist. Afterwards everybody knew how to keep your flowers blooming for weeks, how to cut off the stalks in the right way and how to style your bouquet with the cross technique. Happy flowers equals happy home! Although everyone got the same flowers to work with, every bouquet was different. Receiving flowers is so much more than just putting them in a vase. You've got to work with different flowers, different heights and different colours. That's the fun part. You can still change the look of your bouquet.
So next time, when you give your flowers fresh water after a few days, style them again and enjoy a different aesthetically beautiful bouquet!
Curious about all the tips? Just join the Bloomon workshop yourself! It's really fun, you will learn something new and you will go home with a beautiful bouquet. Treat yourself and take a look at their Facebook page for a workshop in your neighborhood.
