McBean’s Orchids Launch New Shop in Chelsea

McBean’s Orchids have a new shop at 11 Cale St, Chelsea, SW3 3QS

McBean's Opening Evening - Chelsea, 26 Nov 2015

The head of retail, Will Kerr is one of the nicest people I’ve met and is a great friend so he invited me to the opening – pictured below with the owner Rose Armstrong.

Will was previously the manager for McQueens in Claridges and Moyses and has been featured in Professional Florist Magazine and Wedding Flowers Magazine – so he knows his floristry!

The flowers and decor of the shop are amazing!

L’Arche Candle Making Workshop in West Norwood

Fab Candles at L’Arche Craft Workshop

The Candle making workshop at L’Arche in West Norwood was a great success – lots of people came and another workshop is being planned!

Some people asked if it was every weekend!

Here are some photos of the day – lots of lovely candles and a few ice candles were made too (the round ones with ‘holes’ in them which are beautiful) – the workshop was suppose to last a couple of hours but it went on all day – some people had to go back in order to finish the candles.

Another workshop will happen possibly the last week of November but we will post up information soon. (see below for L’Arche social media links and for Rock Paper Scissors & The Stitch who will be posting when it will be)

Szilvia makes a candle…

… and makes her mother proud 😀

Szilvia of ‘Fitness with Szilvia‘ and ‘Szilvia’s Pets‘ making her candle – a lot of people put colours in the wrong way around – the candle is made upside down – Szilvia’s colour scheme is based on a flame which is appropriate! – click the links to visit her facebook pages. (She has yet to decide on the name of her fitness business so the page is currently ‘Szilvia’s Fitness’ – I personally like the first version 😉
