As I write, we are all living in unprecedented times, so the text I wrote last year for this course seems rather frivolous. I have decided to put this course back on sale for those who are after something creative to help take their minds off what we have going on around us. I have reduced the price from £24 to £18 as I know we are all more mindful at the moment.
One thing that is helping me, is seeing the seasons change on the numerous dog walks I've been on since lockdown started back in early spring. Everything is looking so lush now we're in the summer months, there's a gorgeous array of colours about - nature is doing her beautiful thing and it's something I'm really appreciating right now! Florists are now open and flowers are easier to get hold of so you can have a fabulous play and team what you find with foraged bits and bobs. If you have a garden you may have anything from roses, snapdragons and foxgloves to cornflowers and Nigella choose from.
So what is In Bloom? It is a creative mini-course designed to inspire you to play with flowers and brighten up your home during this strange period we are in. I have created four super-pretty floral projects for you; there’s a flower crown, an on trend mantel arrangement, a simple summer table idea and a pretty wall-hanging. Each project has easy-to-follow step-by-step photographs to guide you along and I am to hand via my email at [email protected] or message me on instagram for any help you may need.

How much is In Bloom?
It’s £18 (which includes vat as Teachable adds it on automatically)
Is In Bloom for me?
Yes if you'd love to learn some fun and easy ways to decorate your home with flowers this season and are after some insider styling tips too!
It's perfect for beginners or more experienced flower folk alike, I break the projects down into easy step by step images to guide you along.
I really enjoyed Sophie’s winter mini-course! There were 4 great step by step projects, easy to understand and with detailed instructions on how to manage even the difficult parts! Decorating my home became so much easier and the projects were also a great base to modify with different add-on flowers and foliage of my choice. Absolutely amazing value for money!

‘Sophie’s 20 years experience as a stylist for magazines and photo shoots has given her a wealth of experience which she shares in her easy to follow Style with Blooms e-course’

Hello, I'm Sophie and I've been an interior stylist and journalist for 20 years working on many of the UK's top national interior magazines. Flowers are used in every shoot I've ever done - they add the final touch, that burst of colour and life that lights up the photograph. In 2018, I launched my Style with Blooms series of flower styling courses to share my floral styling knowledge with all of you fellow flower lovers out there. Last year I trained to be a florist as my passion for flowers was starting to take over *whoops* and so The Prettiest Posy was born with the simple philosophy: to offer beautiful blooms in stunning colours and textures that epitomise 'prettiness'.
