My Weekly Missive
I was so excited to receive in the post yesterday, delightfully wrapped, a bespoke floral paperweight from the Flower Preservation Workshop. They kindly created this for me from wedding flowers I sent to them last Summer. I have wanted for some time to actually see one these beauties up close and personal to ensure they were every bit as gorgeous as they appear on the Flower Preservation Workshop's website and advertising material. I can heartily give them 5 shiny stars - the paperweight exceeds my expectations. It will be joining my Wedding Box of individual stunning ideas I now show to prospective brides during my journey with them to create their wedding designs.
My paperwieight contains Serruria "Blushing Bride" a fabulous South African flower which I used for the first time last year for a wedding where I also created my first "floral layer" for an actual real life wedding cake - photos of this wedding and Sam's lovely bouquet are on my Wedding page.
