Week 02: Foundation Wedding & Event Design

Week two at the PAUL THOMAS FLOWER SCHOOL is devoted to Foundation Wedding & Events, immersing students in the enchanting world of wedding and event floristry. The week begins with mastering intricate wiring techniques, essential for crafting exquisite buttonholes, corsages, and flower crowns.

We then delve into the art of bridal bouquets, exploring various techniques, flowers and foliage to create bespoke styles for a diverse range of brides. To equip you with the full spectrum of skills needed for designing captivating event florals, we dedicate classes to different styles of table arrangements. The week finishes with the creation of a PAUL THOMAS classic: stunningly seasonal urn arrangement.

Flower Care
  • Lift the bouquet out of the bag or box and carefully remove the paper wrap and hydration pack.
  • Do not remove the string as this holds the handcrafted design together.
  • Remove any leaves that would be below the waterline to keep the water clean and prolong the vase life.
  • Cut the flower stems on an angle and split woody stems with scissors. Trim to the right length for your vase.
  • Pour the flower food into your chosen vase and fill with freshly‐drawn, lukewarm water.
  • Place the flowers in the vase ensuring the water is high enough to reach any shorter stems.
  • Position the flowers away from direct sunlight, draughts, radiators or air conditioning.
  • If these steps are followed, a mixed bouquet should last 5‐7 days. The flowers may last varying lengths of time, simply remove any dying flowers as the bouquet ages.
Orchid Plant Care
  • Orchid plants should be kept in a well‐lit place but out of direct sunlight.
  • Avoid draughts and extreme temperatures of below 12°c or above 25°c.
  • Water/mist the roots and leaves regularly (approx. once a week) avoiding the flowers. The roots should remain moist but should not sit in water.
  • Wipe any dust from the leaves as required to ensure light reaches the foliage.
  • If this care guide is followed, orchid flowers should last for approx. 4 weeks. Once the plant has finished flowering, cut the flower stem back to the third node above the leaves. In time a new flower stem may appear.
Wreath & Garland Care

Our winter wreaths and garlands are handmade to order by our team of master florists. They remain fresh for approximately one to two weeks and dry beautifully.

  • Mist with water regularly (front and back) to keep both the foliage and the base moist.
  • Keep outside or in a cool place to maximise the lifespan.
