Mixology shoot for the holiday edition of Hooray Magazine

A while back the talented styling guru of Melbourne, aka Sooti, aka my mate and I got together to create something fun, bright, tropical, yummy and summer time friendly for the holiday edition of Hooray magazine. The result, was good!

We had the lovely and talented Alison take snaps and here are a few of my faves!

Behind the scenes

As soon as I tell someone "I'm a florist" the first response is always either - "Oh that must be so lovely" or "Wow you get to be around beautiful flowers all day" or "You have the best job, such beautiful surroundings!" 

And while this is all true, I love my job and I love the flowers! But it can often be seen through rose tinted glasses. The hours are long and the works demanding on your body and mind. You are forever doubting yourself and your ability to "get it right". Your day often starts at 4am and finishes again when its dark. And the paper work.. well thats another story. 

I am in no way complaining though, I would never consider another career because I truly love what I do. So while your scrolling through my Instagram pictures that I select carefully and edit thoroughly, here's what you don't see! 



P is for Pinterest!

So we all love to pin, and I'm always looking for more images to pin!

Each week I'm going to post my top pins so you can see what Im loving right now. Not always flower related, as it's amazing what can inspire you through everyday life!

If anyone has any suggestions on who else is great to follow on Pinterest, let me know! 

Enjoy!

#STYLESESH with Hooray Magazine!

stylesesh-blog2

Last month I was lucky enough to be involved with the #StyleSesh class that Hooray Magazine hosted in Melbourne.

It was so much fun! Not only did the amazing Amber from Sweetpea Darlingheart teach a class full of keen bakers/party planners/desert enthusiasts about how to bake and create a stunning sweets table for their party or wedding, there were also a handful of talented people working behind the scenes making the day one to remember!

The class was held in the gorgeous Raw Materials Studio in Footscray. A big industrial type space full of recycled wood and old wine barrels, this place is literally the ideal wedding venue. Elizabeth was such a gracious host and truly went out of her way to make sure the day ran smoothly.

The wonderful Sooti Events styled the venue, making sure it was full of colour, sparkle and most importantly: confetti. I loved the way Thetis just came in with her team and worked her magic!

Neiyo from Neiyo Photography is responsible for all these stunning images your eyes are seeing. She was a true whiz with the camera and captured every moment beautifully. What a pro.

And last but not at all least, C2 - Wedding Videography were there to catch it all. And did so perfectly.

What an awesome day and I'm so happy I was a part of it. Thank you to everyone involved as it went so smoothly.

P.S After the class finished I went back and wrapped all the flowers for the students to take home - I would have to say that was the highlight of my day, seeing the smiles on everyones face!
