The Garden and Home Workshop at Multiflora

Khali and her students were invited to participate at the Garden and Home workshop held at Multiflora City Deep on the 11th October. There were 400 attendees at the event and a fab time was had by all as they had the opportunity to watch Khali do a demo and presentation on wedding flowers and decor. She gave tips on caring for flowers, flower arranging, décor, brides and trends. Volunteers from the audience joined in to assist her in completing the overall look and feel.
All décor stock was provided by Grandiflora and The Wedding Specialist for the four themed tables – a pastel table; a forest themed table; a navy, white and crystal table and a monochrome table with a pop of colour using orchids and lilies.
