Overview

You are warmly invited to join me at Country Style & Life as we take time together to celebrate a pre-Mother's Day Saturday with an exclusive fun and fabulous workshop amongst a small group of lovely ladies! Enjoy doing something special just for yourself – or bring along a girlfriend, your mother or your sister! All are welcome to enjoy a lovely day soaking up the country ambiance on my West Gippsland property – just 40 minutes drive from Berwick.

I love the pots of gorgeous bulbs that I create each Spring! When the season comes around, I am always so glad I took the time in Autumn to ensure I have lots of glorious colourful, bulbs bursting through in the Springtime. I design and create all sorts of sized and shaped flowering pots using a variety of bulbs, such as bluebells, crocus, daffodils, hyacinths, ranunculus and tulips.

For this workshop, I will share my planting tips and tricks, and show you how to assemble and look after your plantings to ensure you have a gorgeous blooming pot of flowers in Spring! I invite you to design and create your version of something fabulous for your home and garden while spending a happy, half-day out here at the property. Select your own pot size, bulbs and companion seedlings so you can create a gift that will bless you with beautiful, fragrant blossoms and blooms later in the year.

Your potting options are endless, so allow for whatever creative spark comes to you on the day! Choose from one bulb in one little pot, through to however many bulbs in however many pots you'd like! It could be 10 bulbs in a mid-size pot or 50 bulbs in a large bowl. It could be 25 bulbs in a round pot or 3 bulbs in a window box. Your imagination and budget are all yours. You can buy just one variety of bulb or mix and match bulbs together. By paying for the materials on the day, you decide what suits your budget and your creative vision best!

All materials are available to purchase at standard retail prices. Individual bulbs vary from $1.50 to $3.00 per bulb depending on the type. Pot prices (including the required amount of good quality potting mix) range from $10 to $40 depending on the shape and size. Accompanying flowers, herbs/lettuces are from $2 per seedling.

Details

10:00am – Arrive to enjoy meeting and greeting everyone because today is all about making connections and friendships. We'll start with morning tea of a cuppa and traditional scones, cream and jam brought to us by the local ladies at the Country Women's Association. What a gorgeous way to start a day in the country!

10:20am – Bring your tea or coffee as we go on a quick tootle around the property so I can share with you the story of how it all came to be. Then it's time to go shopping in the nursery, making your selection of pots, bulbs and seedlings from the wide range on offer.

11:00am – Our workshop begins! Find your place at the table and let's start creating! I'll be taking you through my tips on successful planting and creating a pot that not only looks beautiful but one that will also flourish with long-lasting blooms. Get your hands in the potting mix, go at your own pace, create your work of art, chat and catch up with the other great women, take in the views, relax and take time out just for you!

12:30pm – Lunch is served! A casual, hamper-style lunch of a range of gourmet sandwiches, garden salad, local Gippsland cheeses and chocolates. It will be a time to relax and reflect on our morning together. Feel free to have a wander through the garden at your leisure, or potter around the shop, selecting something special from the carefully curated offerings that reflect our design aesthetic here at Country Style & Life.

1:30pm – 2pm – Time for goodbyes! Pop your pot and goodies in the car, kisses and hugs to all and head off for a safe trip home.
