Do you ever look at beautifully styled images in glossy magazine and gasp at the fabulous flowers which celebrities have all around them? Then why not go along to the Flower Master Class at Blythswood Square, Glasgow, when top florist Nick Priestly of Mood Flowers will demonstrate the latest trends – while enjoying a glass of prosecco and a sumptuous afternoon tea!
Nick has designed pieces specifically for ‘A’ list celebrities visiting Glasgow including Keira Knightley, Kylie Minogue and Cyndi Lauper and it was his flowers which greeted P Diddy when he stayed in the Penthouse at Blythswood Square. He said: ‘Every client is different whether celebrity or not and I love the challenge of creating something which blends their personality perfectly with the backdrop for the arrangements.
‘For P Diddy I created beautiful vase arrangements of trailing crisp white phalenopsis orchids and tropical foliages which looked gorgeous in the Penthouse while for Rihanna’s hotel suite and dressing room at the SECC it was lots of mini vase arrangements using ivory Avalanche roses and nude coloured Vendela Roses.’
The Flower Master Class being held on Sunday 26th February is the next in a series at Blythswood Square. Nick added: ‘Guests joining me for this session will see me create current trends in floristry along side signature pieces. They will then have the opportunity to put together their own mini masterpiece which they can take home together with some ideas to help them create the boutique hotel look in their own home.’
The Flower Master Class costs £60 per person (maximum 20) and includes a glass of prosecco and afternoon tea. Also includes a beautiful arrangement of seasonal flowers created personally by each attendee.
