Spring Wreath Making with The Enchanted Garden

Monday 15 April 2019

Recently I realised that my hobbies have basically all dried up. Because of my carpal tunnel photography is no longer an option, and I haven't been blogging often. All I do is play Pokemon Go and I needed something more. When I saw The Enchanted Garden advertise their spring wreath making class I immediately messaged my Mum, Nanny and auntie to see if they wanted to do it with me. When I was a kid I always thought being a florist seemed amazingly cool, so I was super eager to give this class a go. My Mum was sadly busy but with my Nanny and auntie by my side, off we went to our class.

We met The Enchanted Garden when looking for an independent florist for my Grandad's funeral, and since then we've used them several times, including also for my Grandma's funeral. They are always professional and lovely, and come up with beautiful work. This class cost £30 each, which included the whole base of the wreath (which is reusable), and all the flowers and foliage used.

We were shown how to create the base of the wreath using willow which is surprisingly bendy and durable, and then it was onto the foliage to begin the base of the flower section. We used a real mixture of different leaves including pistachio, ivy and eucalyptus.

We were provided with a real mix of flowers for the main section, roses, carnations, daisies and more. I saw some lovely little white flowers and lavender roses and knew exactly what I wanted to do.

One of the fun parts of the class was that we were offered a huge mix of flowers in different colours, so everyone's wreath looked really different to everyone elses. My aunties was very colourful with a rainbow of flowers, and my Nanny chose yellow as her focus. They all turned out beautifully!

We tied them off with a ribbon of our choice and instructions to water the wreath daily to keep it at it's best. Hopefully they should last a week which is awesome!

I really loved the course and will for sure be keeping my eye out for the next one.

Much love,
Kitty xxxx
