Banbury florist feeds dried flowers fashion with wreath-making craft kits

Mary Elizabeth Snee has combined her professional floristry training with her love of nature and craft to come up with a range of wreath-making kits for summer, autumn and Christmas. This new idea is part of Ms. Snee's business Mary Elizabeth Flowers.

"Floristry is really trending, Connecting nature and craft, floristry ticks a lot of boxes when it comes to satisfying the nation’s urge for slowing down and enjoying gentle creative activity using our hands," said Ms. Snee who was Banbury born and educated at The Warriner School. Her floristry training was undertaken at Warwickshire College, Moreton Morrell.

"Growing participation in floristry courses, engagement with florists on social media, and even a place among the Bake Off-style TV competitions, with Netflix series The Big Flower Fight, seem to illustrate this increased interest."  

This new range of craft kits is designed to feed the current floristry bug. They contain everything necessary to make a seasonal floral decoration using real dried flowers, foliage, and grasses and come with full guidance and a step-by-step, illustrated explanation of the professional floristry techniques used in wreath-making.

“As a florist, I am constantly aware of the joy and satisfaction creating with flowers brings. My wreath-making kits are a way of sharing that 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 forms of flowers to make a beautiful end product," said Ms. Snee.
