The Language of Flowers

So what did I do today? I took a break and attended a most lovely class. Its a nice feeling to take a break from work photography sometimes and just do a bit of passion photography 😉

I love the class! Well mostly because I LOVE flowers and I’m obsessed with it and anything to do with it including essential oils. Sigh.. that will be a topic entirely on its own..

It was held at Wilder cafe along North Bridge Road. Do Google them if you wana stop by. They have a unique menu and geared towards the healthy eating side. Still tastes just as delicious 🙂

Anyway, the class touched on a little of the history of 7 most popular flowers in the world which I absolutely LOVE! Nothing quite like hearing juicy, scandalous information to make me fall in love with them even more ^^ I do wish it was longer! And after that a little info about essential oils (20 minutes is not enough!) followed by a light brunch before we start our hands-on activity. Yes, I do feel it should be a full day event haha!

Shukri Kadola, the man, the Petalsmith, and founder of Bloem delivered the workshop with much flair 🙂 What I enjoyed about the workshop was, I am free to explore a simple flower arrangement that will still look gorgeous on my table without all the technicalities of flower arranging itself. Plus, I’m a girl who enjoys the little details and background stories which I thought was presented in a nice, bite-sized way. And the team that helped Shukri with the workshop was so helpful, friendly and giggly that they are just an awesome bunch of people to spend a Sunday morning with 🙂 So, if this sounds like what you will like, check Bloem out! The next workshop has been scheduled for April 🙂

Meanwhile, enjoy the onslaught of pictures here ^^
