Inspired by all the pretty fleurs I see on Instagram, I’ve been meaning to learn more about floral arrangements and finally got a chance when I could make it for Yilian‘s workshop session in March.
The workshop was held at a lush private roomorama.com villa in Yarwood Avenue. The venue is gorgeous and tastefully done up. The flowers are beautiful, colorful and made the entire room smell heavenly. It was pure enjoyment to just sit inside the room!
Yilian brought along a variety of flowers for participants to choose and work on. Love how Yilian shared a little about each type of flower she brought along for us to gain better understanding of the flowers.
We were given some tools to help us along as well. These would be most helpful after I make my next trip to the nursery.
She got us to choose a main flower we want to work with and went around to help us along as we put together the filler flowers with the main flower we selected. I chose a whole bunch of flowers I never quite knew prior to this workshop – ranunculus, billy buttons, chrysanthemum pom poms, and hypericum berries!
It’s quite amazing how every one’s bouquet turn out differently with the same variety of flowers provided.
The most challenging bit was the wrapping of the flowers to me. Thankfully, I had the professional to help when needed!
Tadah, my first attempt with basic floral arrangement!
Fancy a workshop that allows you to be surrounded by all things pretty and nice smelling scents while creating something beautiful? This would be it.
