Earlier this spring we teamed up with the lovely ladies behind the monthly ‘Styling the Seasons’ series, Katy from Apartment Apothecary and Charlotte from Lotts and Lots, as well as eight prominent at{mine} bloggers to host and judge a styling competition, #StylingSpringAtMine. We were blown away by the phenomenal response and quality of entries, and the judges had the toughest job at hand to select the group of winners from over 300 participants.

The judges and winners were invited to a floral wreath and posy making workshop at Homemade London in central London, taught by the lovely and talented Caroline from Wild Rubus.

Trust a group of floral-enthusiastic bloggers to go bananas when confronted with a near endless choice of beautiful blooms that came courtesy of innovative online florist Bloom & Wild, who pioneered the ‘flat pack’ delivery of blooms directly through your letterbox.

It was such a joy to watch all the creative talent in the room come up with such a wide range of personal creations, all while chatting frantically with old friends and new acquaintances over a creative chaos of florals, cookies and coffees.

Photographer Katharine Peachey was there to capture the day on old-school film, and how lovely it was to finally receive the developed shots and re-live the day!

Hugest thanks to Katy & Charlotte for teaming up with us, to Nicola at Homemade for the beautiful venue, Olivia at Bloom & Wild for the most gorgeous blooms, Katharine for the wonderful photography and of course Caroline from Wild Rubus for teaching us her craft.

Last but not least, a big thank you to all the amazing judges and winners for making it such a fun day, and to everyone who took part in #StylingSpringAtMine. We’re looking forward to more events, collaborations and competitions – watch this space!
