Fabienne Egger Floristry Class At Morton's Club London

Event at Morton's Private Member Club in LondonRegardless of the topic, I've noticed I tend to sneak some form of nature into each blog post in one way or another.  So, you can imagine my delight at spending yesterday afternoon knee deep in flowers!  Better yet, knee deep in flowers at the Morton's Club in London's Mayfair and in a beautifully bright, fresh space.  Early in the afternoon, I made my way in the sunshine to the private member's club, where the media were to be introduced to both Fabienne Egger and her new venue for Floristry Classes.  With a schedule of creating a luxurious table centre design, followed by the chance to create a picture-perfect flower frame, I put my apron on and prepared to get stuck in...

Floristry classes by Fabienne Egger at Morton's ClubFirst impressions are everything, and I truly couldn't have imagined a more beautiful location in central London for a floristry class (or two!).  The first tutorial 'Thrill Your Guests' came in the form of creating our own table centrepieces for an informal event.  It was a lot of fun to work with oasis floral foam, and I loved the inclusion of Eryngium (thistle) and roses in Fabienne's floral selections for the class.  Though more than anything, the ease of the process appealed to me.  And by this I mean in comparison to many other floristry classes, I wasn't asked to bring anything along - it was all provided.  Which was a relief, because nobody wants to be sat on the tube armed with secateurs!

Psst!  Check out some of Fabienne's beautiful Wedding Floral Designs in action on Laura from SheHearts special day!

After a quick step-back to admire our handiwork, the creations were lined up to form the perfect elongated table centrepiece for an informal dinner.  Surrounded by tea lights, the result was truly beautiful and sure, on some level had me feeling like a proud mum watching her little one line up for its first day of... flower school?

Thanks to Rebecca from Model Type Face for the photo! 
After taking photos (uh, a dishevelled one, in my case) with our pretty-in-pink creations, we set up for round two, a class aptly titled 'Create Your Own Painting'.  As much as I enjoyed the first class, filling a large frame with bundles of flowers was a special and entirely unique experience and something I'd never heard of before - let alone tried for myself!  We were once again provided with a bucket of various flowers, and from there given creative control over our designs (see last photo).  Featuring an array of fresh flowers, the end result could best be described as impactful - the kind of thing you want to show anyone and everyone!

My 'Flower Painting' creation - so pleased!
The entire afternoon was really enjoyable, and provided a perfect introduction to the beautiful Fabienne, along with her new and unique floristry classes at Morton's Private Members Club.  If the colours in this post have inspired you, try an (early) Springtime version of my DIY Autumn Wreath, or make your way over to Fabienne Egger's website to find out more about the 'no-experience required' classes that she runs (inc. half day, full day and evening).  You won't regret it!

  2. I’ve always wanted to try create my own floral arrangement! Yours turned out gorgeously! The place looks really beautiful & somehow, you even look beautiful while “dishevelled” haha (I don’t think you look dishevelled at all). I definitely want to try & make my own now!

  6. I didn't even know flower classes were a thing that you could do! I love the look of that flower painting as well, I was expecting it to just be a normal painting but it's so much more unique than that. If I did one of those I'd probably proudly take a million photos and send them to everyone I know haha

  8. What charming arrangements these are. I took a floral design class last year and it really helped as inspiration, especially when I had to create some arrangements for a friend's wedding. There is such an art in floral designing that I appreciate. This sounds like it was a great event with splendid results to boot! x

  9. These arrangements are truly beautiful and add flair to every table. But the "flower painting" is what intrigues me most. Such a unique way of displaying flowers!

  21. Such a gorgeous post Gabrielle, I'm ever so glad you enjoyed taking part in the class and what beautiful creations you created :)

    Fabienne is incredibly talented and it was wonderful having her as the florist on my wedding day which you can see here http://shehearts.net/winterweddingfetchampark/ :)

    When it comes to floral arrangements I think it's always great to have the help of an expert that's for sure and making creative ideas come to life. Having a personalised class is such a wonderful way to learn how to make gorgeous florals in your home!

    Your arrangements are impressive and particularly love the picture frame you made, it's really beautiful and you look so pretty surrounded by all the flowers too.

    Glad you enjoyed the event Gabrielle!

  50. If I lived there, I would sign up for this class asap. Flowery class is something that sounds right up my alley. I love flowers and I would love to learn more about arranging flowers.

    This floral class must have been a very interesting experience. I love that you weren't required to bring anything along but rather they provided you with everything you need. That first floral arrangement you created is so beautiful...so perfect it is almost hard to believe these creations are real. How pretty they do look on the table!

    The second floral arrangement is also gorgeous. I love how it is framed to make it look like a painting. I love this concept (I bet you knew I would!) of creating a floral painting with flowers. The painting you created is quite exceptional. If it were mine, I would have wanted everyone to see it too.

    Such a creative workshop! I think there is a special satisfaction that comes from creating something with our own hands. Today when everything it is so digital, it is so refreshing to see something 'real'. I'm sure that these creations look even better in person- but your photography is certainly beautiful.

    I still didn't decide what kind of floral arrangement I want on the flower for Valentine's day. I was thinking of picking up a simple bouquet today and then perhaps add my own touches to it? Or maybe I should go along and buy the flowers and do everything by myself? I will give it some thought! I love floral arrangements that are a bit messy, that have elements of wild to them, like branches and stuff like that.

  58. The older I get the more I appreciate floral arrangements. You must love nature! I took a walk around 7pm yesterday; it was beautiful. it had just turned dark, the air was crisp, and I felt alive. I decided I'm going to take a walk every day. There’s something about being outside that feeds my soul. I love the picture frame arrangement. You are truly talented Gabrielle
