My daughter (6) and I spent a gorgeous afternoon at Blossom Floral Events with Lisa. We were in her lovely wooden workshop and we created two beautiful floral arrangements which we were then allowed to take home.  Lisa made it fun for us both, and we learned a thing or two – Lisa showed us how to let the oasis soak up water and how many of each flower we should use to make the arrangements look their best. There was a huge choice of leaves and flowers – dried and fresh – and some sparkly and colourful decorations too. We had a laugh and spent some lovely time together as mother and daughter. This would be a great day for grannies and grandchildren, mum or dad and children, or even for a child’s birthday party. Lisa is a really lovely, funny, natural person who is very passionate about floral design and is keen to pass on her knowledge and love of flowers. A super day out. Thanks Lisa!

Highly recommendable from start to finish, I learnt so much as Lisa is so knowledgeable and the guidance, help & advice flowed nicely. The 4 hours flew by ,I couldn’t believe that I made such beautiful pieces (my family were amazed at the photos), a hand-tied bouquet, wrapped & presented in a box with ribbon, a funeral or centrepiece as well as a lovely thistle and heather buttonhole, all to take home. Amazing that Lisa was able to get all this from an absolute beginner! The workshop itself is beautiful, well designed, so relaxing & peaceful. Just perfect. Booked my second workshop for the following week straight away. Can’t wait! Thank you Lisa’
