From the moment you drive up the tree lined driveway of Villa Floretti, you know that you’re being transported. I seriously could have been somewhere in Europe last weekend for their bouquet making workshop held by the uber-talented and all-round lovely gal Lauren from Poppy Culture.

Property owner Richelle Marks is a passionate floral enthusiast and generous hostess who runs the workshops amongst the flower orchards with picturesque views across the bay, or in our case, in the barn in the case of rain.

To be in the beautiful space that she’s created and to learn from Lauren was such a fun and inspiring way to spend the day with friends.

This would be a perfect thing to do on a girl’s weekend on the Mornington Peninsula.

Everyone walked away with a gorgeous bouquet that they’d made themselves, from foraged flowers. And a glass of prosecco and local fruits and cheeses to wind it up.

A fun and inspiring start to the weekend!
