Saturday 11th May

Who can deny that flowers are as integral to a wedding as the dress and the cake?  They create the romantic atmosphere filling the air with their perfume.  So why not come along to Reveley, where Christine will demonstrate how to make a traditional buttonhole, table setting and hand tied bouquet.  You will make a contemporary buttonhole and simple place setting, and learn how these deceptively simple ideas will influence your choice of table decorations and flowers.  In addition Christine will answer questions such as: themes; what flowers will be in season at the time of the wedding; can I use foliage from the garden; what equipment do I need; and how much should I budget for and (the all important) is there any way to save money?  

On arrival we will be serving tea and coffee and homemade biscuits,  lunch with a glass of prosecco is provided as well as a goody bag of bits and instructions, you will also have the opportunity for a guided tour of the garden at Reveley.  Come on your own or bring your Mum or your bridesmaids for a girls’ day out and just talk weddings.  

This will be an all day event.10:30 - 3:30 at Reveley Lodge. Cost £55


Spring, Summer, Autumn all 10:30 - 12:00 at Reveley Lodge. Cost £10. Ticket includes free entry into 3 raffles of the arrangements Christine will do on the day, tea/coffee and home made biscuits. Details for the Winter event will be announced later.
