The second day of the workshop started with the step-by-step realization of creative floral design concept which speakers have got the inspiration from British colonial decor, palette, prints and interior elements. Students recreated the ceremony installation and the wedding reception table decoration with an elegant setup. 


The ceremony installation was represented by the accumulation of hanging fabric-printed patterns and prints imitating the typical colonial wallpaper which were inhanced with the bold suspended floral compositions and finished with the floor compositions incasing the ceremony venue. 

Table set up had it's unique centrepiece arrangement - one floral composition gently flowing from one vase to another by connecting the accent floral colours. The main part for vessels was given to the Chinese porcelain.

Creating this masterpiece all students were governed by two primary techiques - grouping colours and multi-layer space planning that have special features, traits and secrets could be learnt and practiced by participants on the spot. And many other nitty-gritty tricks were revealed during this invaluable session.

Speakers and organisers have honored all students with Workshop Certificate and captured group excitement on a group photos.

It still feels so surreal that I’ve just attended floral_style’s workshop in KL! It was an eye opening experience in learning about their thought process in conceptualizing, and also witnessing how the installation comes to life.  It was indeed a good floral retreat & I’m so glad I’ve went with these floral buddies as well!

When East meets West. The western and Asia culture has a long heritage, both beautiful in colors and rich in history. It’s interesting to see when these two cultures come together, will they clash or create a wonderful masterpiece?

 

With guidance from the florists from @floral_style, we worked on a floral installation with the theme ‘Western Trends in Asia’. Using flowers that are rich in colors, complemented by Asian elements such as Chinese ceramics and adorned by western culinary accessories, the final outcome was truly a breath-taking masterpiece!

 

We feel inspired from this experience and look forward to creating more beautiful floral art work and installations in the future!

Bloom: a beautiful process of becoming. 
From time to time, flower has brought us together. 
As a local florist, I still can't believe how lucky we were to be able to attend floral workshop conducted by floral artist from Moscow. @art_petrov @floral_style, @floral_style_school! Shoutout to @midsummer.events which organised it extremely well, along with the translation provided.

The floral installation themed 'Western Trends in Asia' was very inspiring and free, thus allowing us to push our imaginations to the limits. 
It wasn't just the colours, the floral species, or designs that inspired me. 

 

This workshop sparked a realisation in me, that we need to train ourselves to have eager eyes, to notice the most minute details often ignored and to be attentive to our instincts. 
 

We learn by paying attention to how others work, to be invigorated by their passion and simultaneously learn from our mistakes. 
It's always exciting to be surrounded by talented florists and event planners from Malaysia! 
We learn, we love, we bloom!
