Hi everyone! Welcome to Spring and the countdown to Christmas! Below is an update for all things happening at Periwinkle!
It's amazing how fast this year seems to of gone already, spring is definitely here with a beautiful array of sweetly scented blossom and spring blooms filling the shop.
We do offer a full floral service and we can deliver at no charge to the Leeston Township and we can courier elsewhere in Selwyn or central Christchurch once a day.
It’s a good idea to order in advance if at all possible so that we can create that special arrangement for your loved one and have it arrive all in good time for you. We can create anything from sweet little tussie mussie posies to large celebration bouquets, wedding bouquets, funeral tributes, gift boxes for all occasions and there are always gift wrapped plants ready to pick up as you rush past.
Seasonal veges, seed potatoes, herbs, perennials and annuals are all ready for your spring planting in the nursery.
This year Periwinkle will be creating gorgeous Floral Crowns to wear at the races; this is becoming a very popular and gorgeous fashion trend! What girl can resist wearing a stunning floral crown of scented and colourful blooms in her hair, a fantastic and feminine look to enhance her outfit on this exciting day!
Details of styles, colours, prices and photos will be on the website soon. These do need to be pre-ordered ahead of Cup Day so please get in contact with Kim to discuss the perfect flowers to compliment your dress.
Already stocks of Christmas goodies, foliage’s and novelties have started to arrive this week and the children's and adult class dates and times are on the website now.
The children's holiday classes are very popular and great fun for the children creating their own special pieces in small friendly classes. These holidays we are decorating a wooden Christmas Keepsake Tree, a 3 dimensional tree that is painted, glittered, decoupaged and will look very festive and ready hang on special little treats in December. $30 per class.
A festive hanging cane Christmas Star can also be made; this has a beaded hanger and looks very pretty as it moves in the breeze. $20 per class. The classes are booking up already so checkout the website and book online or by phoning the store so your little ones don't miss out.
Also a list of the dates for the Adult classes are online, these run from mid-October to end of November. The class runs for approx. 90 mins, either evenings in the week or Saturday afternoon. There is a lovely variety of gorgeous items that can be made: Christmas wreath, topiaries, table centre pieces, swags, kissing rings to name a few.
It is up to the individual as to what they would like to create and how many classes they would like to attend. All you need to do is to call into the shop to see the wreaths etc. on display, or check out our Christmas gallery to give you some ideas and inspiration as to what would enhance your own festive home.
Periwinkle will have everything you need to create your own special piece, ribbons, wreath frames, foliage’s, berries etc. to purchase and you may also have some materials you can bring along from your own Christmas box. Have a chat to Kim or her friendly staff and we can give you guidance as to what you will require for your creation.
The class fee is $27, which includes tuition, wire, glitter and glue. (Other materials can be purchased in store or you are welcome to bring your own decorations). These classes are held in the shop, in friendly small classes. Bookings are essential as they fill up very quickly and can be made online or by phoning or visiting the shop.
