I’ve written about Bloom Series before, so was chuffed to finally attend one of their events last week. It’s an evening filled with flowers run by floral stylist Jardine and photographer Lisa.

We started with champagne and nibbles before Jardine explained a little about each of the flowers from the the rainbow-esque display. We then got a demonstration on how to make a posy in her incredibly beautiful natural style.

It was great having so many different flowers to play with and I enjoyed giving a little bit of help to those around me. It was such a treat to make some new floral friends, namely Amy of Henry Hudson and John from Blooming Lovely, and the talented photographers Lisa and Pete from And a Day. I feel a little like the dorky new kid on the block, but am amazed by the warm welcome you have all given me.

At the end of the night I helped wrap all the bouquets and it was very interesting to see all the different interpretations presented to me. There were beautiful colour combinations and unusual designs. All of them had something special about them.

Last week we had a visit from floral artist Doctor Cooper. She created unusual structural arrangements of olive branch and persimmon for a party we were throwing at the office. I think they compliment the masculine industrial feel of the space nicely. Check out some of her other creations below.

Pretty Streets Botanicals is a Brooklyn based floral design studio. They also run a little flower stand at the Bedford Cheese Shop. Owner Kristen Ossmann has her own flower garden and tries to use home grown flowers whenever possible. I love this new movement if florists growing their own or having really direct relationships with small local flower farms.
