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!
