You may or may not know my story - 14 years ago I was (what I thought) the least creative person around (with arty type things anyway) - I couldn't draw to save myself & whilst I sometimes enjoyed crafts I certainly wasn't 'good' at them...
And then I bought a florist shop!!
I have to be honest I had never bought a bunch of flowers in my life nor had an interest in becoming a florist. I was interested in business & growing this gorgeous little shop that I had found. What I didn't know then was my journey ahead! I had no idea that I would develop the passion that I have today for flowers & the appreciation I have for all aspects of nature. I became a florist & learnt many aspects of floristry. I have even spent several years producing Wedding flowers. And what's more - they were beautiful! I don't say that with arrogance but rather great happiness. I learnt to do something I thought I never had in me!
This is what I say to people who claim they are not creative... you would be very surprised at what you can do when you want to (or have to) and with the right guidance. If you have an inkling to do something fun or creative - whatever you do, please don't let the excuse of 'I'm not creative' stop you - life is too short so have a go & you will be very pleasantly surprised! :-)
I am a testament that even the 'least creative' people can make beautiful things.
And this has brought about my new passion at The Blu Tulip. Sharing with people the experience of learning how to make flowers that they can take home…my passion is extending to helping people do what I did – take the belief that they are not creative into realising that they can produce something beautiful with the right guidance. I wanted to make the experience even more though – to give these lovely ladies a wonderful night out that they thoroughly enjoy on a higher level.
We now stock the beautiful Land of Lilly Natural Skincare range so I thought what better experience than to bring these two together. So our flower workshop has evolved into a Flower Workshop Pamper Party Experience… somewhere you will feel relaxed, refreshed & energised afterwards. First Nicki from Land of Lilly will take you through a self-facial using her high quality organic skincare which is produced right here in SA & then I take the flower workshop segment where you get to create your own flower arrangement.
The experience was just as I imaged afterwards… seeing people who didn’t think they were that creative bring together a beautiful milk bottle posy flower arrangement that they got to take home was fantastic - & they absolutely loved the experience.
