A flower girl

Indeed I am now, I have been dreaming of approaching floristics for a while now, holding my breath in admiration of the amazing somewhat wild blooms created by Ariella Chezar and Amy Merrick, ever since visiting the magic world of Hermien and Alida’s  Flower foyer,  thinking these ladies must be fairies to bring such beauty to this world.

And just imagine now I have got this magic dust on my fingers as well))) all thanks to Nikita Dementiev at First Florist school who shared his secrets and inspiration with us.

I have been feeling so happy discovering the tricks and magic of the flower world, feeling stronger each time that I do belong to it. The school itself is enchanting, all green, filled with books, flowers and vintage decorations.

flower girlApart from what we learned at school there is another thing – I remember once asking Hermien if it was right to hang succulents on the wall to what  she replied: “here we can do whatever we want, it’s our world”) this basically became the floral rule for me – no rules, just creativity and fantasy.
