Demonstration at Dullingham Flower Club

On the 11th November we packed up two vans and swept up the M11 on a wild and windy autumn night to Dullingham which is between Newmarket and Cambridge!
I don't usually have the time to do evening demonstrations for flower clubs but Lesley Bird who organises this club was very persuasive and managed to pack the hall with over a hundred guests. Itwas a fabulous evening and I was helped on stage by Anita and Hisako while my neice Katie efficiently organised the book sales!

Thanks to Lesley Bird and the flower enthusiasts of  Dullingham.
Grateful thanks also to  Waitrose for their sponsorship! - Next demo stop  - San Diego in April!

Anita, Hisako and Paula on stage!

White Amaryllis is a great favourite of mine for the festive season.

A typical Paula Pryke colour combo!
I adore pink and purple together as
any one who has visited our London
Studio will know!

Waxed mini apples in all the colours are inspiring our
Christmas Decorations.

This new luminous wire by
the Smithers Oasis company is
fabulous for corporate flowers!

Festive white and green topiary

Multicoloured Xmas

Birch is such a wonderful and useful wood!

Conical Topiary

Favourite Decorations

Hanging decorations are my favourite at the moment!

Exotic hanging decorations!

 Always on the lookout for new pink rose varieties. "Taboo" is a new large pink rose with a large head and last for two weeks in a vase:

This red "Naomi" heart was  a show stopper!

Perfect new variety for the Autumn:

We had once worked with these 1 and a half metre roses at the Royal Opera House but I couldn't resist being photographed with this vase from the Nervada Farm in Ecuador!

So  many great bi-colours!
