Bloomin’ Marvellous Flower School Christmas Wreath Classes
November 2021 by The Plus Ones
There’s a reason so many people started baking, painting and gardening in lockdown. Learning new skills and working with your hands in a creative way has been shown to improve mood and reduce stress. As Melburnians begin to reconnecting with their friends, family, colleagues and city, our love for getting creative and socialising has never been stronger. That’s why when my plus one and I were invited by ClassBento to a Christmas flower wreath workshop at Bloomin’ Marvellous Flower School in Malvern East, we jumped at the opportunity to experience something new.
Arriving at Bloomin’ Marvellous, we were greeted warmly by the flower school’s founded, Jemina. With a glass of fancy bubbly, and a delicious little cake we were ready to learn! This was our first time working with flowers to make a wreath and we couldn’t have been in better hands. With career spanning over 30 years, Jemina has collaborate with some of the best in the business and worked on many of Melbourne’s most prestigious events including the Melbourne Grand Prix Spring Racing Carnival and the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. Her passion for flowers and teaching shines through.
Jemina was quick to point out that our wreaths could be personalised to our individual style and taste and would teach our beginners class the basics to get started. Supplying fresh flowers, dehydrated orange, cinnamon sticks and other festive decorations like baubles and bird ornaments, we had a huge variety of curated ingredients to make something spectacular.
