Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to spend the evening with The White Company. The event was held at one of their flagship stores, in Marylebone.
The store is simply stunning, this image above is just one of the beautiful displays. I was, to put it in simple terms, in White Company heaven. Once I’d met my fellow Instagram bloggers and had a little glass of fizz (had to say yes of course!) we got started.
The evening was in honour of the amazing Mother’s Day range The White Company has put together. For the event, they had teamed up with the very talented florist team of Philippa Craddock. They were to be our guides, in styling either a concrete planter of succulents or a scented spring bouquet of flowers in a gorgeous Luddington Vase. Being the self proclaimed killer of succulents, I chose the latter.
Our teacher was Norie, we got to work learning all about the different spring flowers we were using, from a kangaroos paw (yes, it’s true, there really is a flower called this!) to lisianthus, we were showed how to arrange them all in the vase. Starting with the foliage and ending with the blooms. I was pretty pleased with my effort, and it’s still going strong today.
After we’d taken a short break, lovely Norie then showed us how to create a hand-tied bouquet. She made it look incredibly easy. Such talent.
As well as the stunning bouquet in its vase, we were also handed a beautiful goodie bag full of very gorgeous gifts to take home. With the theme being Mother’s Day Gifts, the contents were (see below) a Mother of Pearl Frame, an Advanced Skincare Essentials Kit and a Grapefruit Signature Candle. All of which are simply divine and fabulous gift ideas for Mum, or any special lady in your life.
Thanks for having me White Company, it was a truly wonderful evening, not only am I an expert flower stylist now (well, learning anyhow) I’m an even bigger White Company fan than before, Amy. x
