Just got home and found a bit of time to chill out and write something about my first week at McQueens. I honestly cannot believe how fast it went! Very true that time flies when you have fun and I definitely enjoyed every moment of it! Five days of great designs, thousands of flowers and good vibes. Let me speak about the teachers Wagner, Diana and Alina as they are simply fantastic. I am absolutely in love whenever I see them playing with flowers and creating beautiful arrangements. They are super clear, very kind and so, so funny which makes things easier and more relaxed. Also if you have any doubt or any question they are really there for you, caring and looking after your needs. It's lovely to learn something new but it's equally important to find great people that make your experience a very special one!
Back to the class now. As I wrote in my previous post, the first day was focused on some hand-tied bouquets to practice the dome type shape, McQueen's signature. It didn't take too long to approach the table arrangements though and that made my week! Low arrangements, tall ones, long and low with cascade, elaborate tables: what a dream!
I can't hide my enthusiasm whenever I see something creative and arty taking shape in front of my eyes but it's even more exciting when you are actually working on it and doing your part! So many new ideas, so many tips and advice on the mechanics but above all a beautiful mix of colours, lovely flowers and stunning designs! And if you still haven't had enough, well you can just spend the very last part of the day making some tiny posies with the leftover flowers to take home for your friends and family. While I'm writing this, I am already thinking to next week and looking forward to new blooming adventures for my floral journey!
