At a flower club you meet old friends and make new ones and this month Emma Remington made a first visit to BFAS, but we hope it won’t be the last. Emma describes her style as ‘ contemporary country floral design’. The light touch and informality were appreciated by her audience.
Trees are important in all our lives and Emma’s arrangements were inspired by her connections with them and memories around them.
Emma used a vast array of flowers and foliage to create five very different designs including two foam free arrangements ( it is always interesting to see the new and creative ideas for mechanics). She gave us many tips and new ideas along the way – including a new way of opening up rose flowers, using spare rose leaves to create depth, cotoneaster to provide movement and threading carnations onto aluminium wire.
Emma kindly agreed to share photographs with us.
Thank you for a very enjoyable evening, Emma
