Join acclaimed floral designer Kim Beedie of Figa & Co on 2nd December in the the glorious surroundings of Glemham Hall where she will be demonstrating how to dress your home for the festive season and I will be serving lunch.
The morning session will be spent in the charming and atmospheric dining room where you will look at the various elements that go into creating a stunning seasonal table scape. Kim will be using various props such as candelabra, crystal and crockery to show you how to transform your kitchen and dining room accessories, creating sumptuous or simply stylish table decor.
Lunch will be prepared for you by me and served at the dressed table where you can experience dining in this wonderful historic setting while enjoying the floral decor at first hand.
For the afternoon session you will move into the Grand Hall with it’s imposing timber columns for a hands on experience where you will make and take home a beauteous amaryllis topiary.
We will have the privilege of being joined by Steve Coghill Head Gardener at Glemham for a half hour talk on the history of the gardens and his plans for their future developments.
The skills you will learn throughout the day will enable you to produce beautiful floral pieces at home for the festive season ahead while experiencing the unique character of a day at Glemham Hall.
