A fresh bouquet of flowers does wonders for brightening up a room (and your mood). And at a dinner party or home gathering, it makes a beautiful centrepiece and conversation starter. Rather than popping down to the florist for a pre-made arrangement, learn to mix and match blooms so you can put one together yourself.
Florist Katie Marx is hosting a workshop at Andrew McConnell’s Morning Market in Fitzroy. She’ll spend the afternoon demonstrating the art of putting together a dinner-party table centrepiece using foliage and tidbits from around your home.
There’s also a hands-on component where guests can compose their own simple floral arrangement to take home in a glass vase.
Tickets are $230 per person and include a welcome drink, the demonstration, the activity and a floral arrangement, vase and secateurs to keep.
