Bringing joy and beauty to Haringey

I was absolutely delighted today as Flower Bank made its first design for Haringey Registry Office. We used lilies, eustoma and a sprinkling of glitter

I really enjoyed making Kokedamas with lovely women and children at Tottenham's Flower & Produce Show yesterday on Saturday 16 September.

These are the entries from Priscilla Wakefield House in the "bake off" tent at Tottenham Flower & Produce Show. Unfortunately none of our entries were placed but there's always next year!

On Friday afternoon I spent the afternoon with 7 residents creating designs to enter into the fresh cut flower category at the Tottenham Flower & Priduce Show. Everyone had great fun making their arrangements and they even named them!!

Deliveries to Priscilla Wakefield House and Haringey's Contact Centre

Thanks to Morrisons and Aldi for their end of code flowers.

The second delivery was to Priscilla Wakefield House.

When the designs were delivered to the venues, the young person arranged the displays in situ.

The second pot was a copper basket which was filled with a variety of summer flowers including Roses and Hydrangea whose stems were cut short and inserted into the oasis foam.

He selected flowers from a similar colour tone and left the stems straight and tall. Moss was used to hide the oasis and gave the design a vegetative feel.

He cut the flower stems with scissors at a 45° angle which makes the stems easier to place in the foam.

Friday 16 June - The Young Person used different pots to create different designs. Using pre-soaked Oasis foam as the base he began to create his designs.

Friday 23 June – In our session today , the young person used a number of different flowers to create 2 arrangements which were delivered to Priscilla Wakefield House and Haringey’s Contact Centre and Lady Sarah Cohen House. The Young person used the end of code flowers donated to “The Flower Bank” by Morrisons and Aldi.
