Last month 17 Finnish ladies, readers of Viherpiha magazine, visited the UK for a tour of select gardens across the South of England. Some of the tour’s highlights were a visit to the Hampton Court Flower Show, Wisley Gardens and attending one of our half day workshops at Beaumont House in Windsor. Despite an exhausting day at the Flower Show our ladies buckled down and enjoyed today’s session.
Pasi demonstrated how to create table decorations and button holes using flowers and greenery that one might find growing wild in the countryside and a domestic garden. Gathering the materials from the Beaumont’s gardens, the ladies – working in four teams, began to a series wild table settings. The finished creations were so good they could easily have graced the dining tables at Beaumont’s restaurant.
The button holes also looked superb; the ladies wore them for a photo shoot at the end of today’s session. How proud and glamorous you all look. Well done indeed!!
