Francesca's Floral Workshops

Flower power
It has only been about eight months since Francesca Petherbridge decided to open her beautiful floral boutique in Paddington and it is going from strength to strength. As soon as you walk in the door you realise that this is quite special. There is the sweet smell of narcissi sitting pristine and white in a glass vase waiting to be taken by the next person who finds their scent irresistible. The tastefully put-together tables and counters with selective products draw you in. Explosions of colour from the flowers in glass vases take over one wall.

She has set her house in considerable order with a lovely cubby place for babies and toddlers to snuggle down in while mum and gran enjoy a scented pot of tea and a delicious cake. There is a workshop with ample light, a huge table, the convenient kitchen and facilities just next to it and the counter where you can order your bouquets, buy your scented candles or walk away with some aromatic soap.
