Here’s a few photos to whet your appetite, fresh, dried, herby, green, there are endless combinations of wreathiness.
If you want something a bit wild and elegant, full of gorgeous foliage and no plastics you may want to order one of my wreaths, no two the same. If you have an idea of what you want, or want something bigger than average, get in touch, or simply order one and be surprised when you collect!
A new collection of dried flower arrangements will be available from this afternoon at https://www.facebook.com/smeatongallery/.
Direct commissions are always welcome.
All my flowers are locally sourced in beautiful East Lothian.
Here’s what the November delivery looked like, a big bundle of dried and preserved flowers and foliage. Lovely warm tones that will last for months, slowly fading but still retaining textures and structure.
Been working with growers choosing flower seeds for next year, very exciting, the monthly deliveries are going to be amazing!
I opened the doors to my first workshop as Flowersmith on Saturday. A perfect autumnal day of creativity unfolded helped by guest florist, Marie, over for a visit from France. It was great to see the students at the end of the day happy and clutching their delicate creations on leaving.
This autumn bouquet is stuffed with a rich palette of oranges and reds, hypericum berries, Chinese lanterns, hydrangea and anaphalis to name a few.
Having got my hands on some vintage boat vases I have been channelling Constance Spry
