Kenneth Turner Experience
If you want to stay away from the stereotypical hen party experience with something more sophisticated.
Then a Kenneth Turner Flower Arranging Masterclass might be what you;re looking for. This is ideal if you want to include your mother, grandmother or great aunt as flower arranging can appeal to all age groups.
Kenneth Turner Flowers, one of Britain's most established florists, marry flowers with candles and room fragrances which are sold across the globe and in London at Harrods and Selfridges amongst other places.
The masterclasses are run by Stormy lead by Laura Lee who worked with the influential florist, Kenneth Turner for 25 years and her colleague Jon Poulsom. They have partnered with Cheval Residences and the idea is that flower arranging masterclasses can be held for those staying at the apartments and want a one to one to learn how to create beautiful flower arrangements.
Our group were each given a basket, pussy willow, moss and an orchid which we had to personalise using various props and scissors. Having never done anything like this before I was surprised at how relaxing and calming the whole experience was. The session encouraged giggles and creativity as we got to grips with bending, preening, trimming, and shaping to get the full flower arranging experience.
After the session I felt educated and more knowledgeable on how to select and get the best out of flowers. Stormy cater for groups of about 20 people for the flower masterclasses and or they can come and show you how to professionally decorate your abode with flowers according to your house style from dining room tables and bathrooms to your Christmas tree or a room for a wedding shower.
Stormy are flower connoisseurs who only use flowers that are season and with a studio based inside Covent Garden Flower Market the flowers are guaranteed to be fresh. We are told the flower school will reopen in Covent Garden Flower market within the next two months.
Wedding tip from Laura Lee: flowers that are popular now are Garden Roses and Lily of the valley. Gerbera's are no longer in fashion. Oh, and if you want your orchid to last then it shouldn't sit in water.
