Last weekend I documented a fab workshop for the newest Events hosts on the block, Make Do Drink was created by Nicola Darwen & Helen Brady and last weekend the lovely ladies hosted their first event; Along with Florist Jenna from Elegant Blooms and design who taught lucky participants how to choose, cut, arrange and care for their own created bouquets.

The Mothers day Floral workshop was held in the stunning cocktail bar Elia a hidden gem underneath Preston’s The olive tree. With delicate Mediterranean tiles, soft wooden accents and a nod to the industrial with their abundance of copper piped lighting, it really was such a stunning spot for their first event.

From start to finish the entire thing was planned meticulously down to the very last detail. From the soothing folksy tunes, the glittery Rose Prosecco cocktails and the beautiful array of flowers and foliage delicately decorating the whole space. It was just wonderful to shoot. I can’t wait to see what the ladies come up with next!

Thanks for having me Make Do Drink ladies!
