I want to say thank you to everyone at Fortnum & Mason for inviting me to take part in their Celebrate the Season event, and for being so helpful and welcoming. I made fresh flower headpieces from scented roses, demonstrating floristry and millinery skills and offering advice. Fortnum & Mason is itself a magical space, calming and at the same time uplifting, so it was a joy to be able to create there. 

It would not have been possible without The Real Flower Company sending me such beautiful roses to use. Many people couldn't believe the roses were real, because they looked so perfect, convinced only by the beautiful scent of the blooms. In fact I think it was the scent that lured a few people over to my table. My idea of heaven is a garden filled with David Austin roses.
