Mary Elizabeth Snee has combined her professional training as a florist with her love of nature and crafts to offer a range of wreath making kits for summer, fall and Christmas. This new idea is part of Ms. Snee’s Mary Elizabeth Flowers business.
“Floristry is really in fashion, connecting nature and crafts, floristry ticks many boxes when it comes to satisfying the nation’s urge to slow down and enjoy gentle creative activity using our hands, âsaid Ms Snee, born in Banbury and educated at The Warriner. School. Her training as a florist was undertaken at Warwickshire College, Moreton Morrell.
“The growing attendance at floristry classes, engagement with florists on social media, and even a place among Bake Off-style television competitions, with the Netflix series The Big Flower Fight, seem to exemplify this increased interest.”
This new line of craft kits is designed to feed the current floristry virus. They contain everything you need to make a seasonal floral decoration using real dried flowers, foliage and herbs and come with comprehensive advice and a step-by-step illustrated explanation of professional florist techniques used in wreath making.
âAs a florist, I am constantly aware of the joy and satisfaction that flower creation brings. My crown making kits are a way to share this with other people, allowing them to enjoy the same soul-restoring magic of a quiet hour of using your hands and focusing on the colors, textures and shapes of the flowers to make a beautiful end product, âMs. Snee said.
The most recent version, an Autumn Wreath – Build Your Own Craft Kit, takes the creative process a step further. It lets you make your own craft kit, selecting your own decorating materials to create an autumn wreath of your own design, including mini dried pumpkins if you want to bring a Halloween touch to your home.
Also in the range, a kit to make your own Christmas garland to decorate a fireplace or act as a table runner for your festive celebrations.
The kits produce floral creations for the benefit of longevity. Unlike working with fresh flowers, these decorations can be wrapped and stored to be showcased year after year as part of the family’s seasonal traditions. They also make unusual gifts.
