First things first let me introduce myself. My name is Karen – I know so who is Margot? Margot is me. My middle name is Margaret, shortened to Margot (by my husband). A name I shared with my mum and one I've always truly loved. It therefore felt so right to represent all things Flowers and Lifestyle; my dedicated part of the internet where I'll be sharing my love and tried and tested approaches for interior design, quick and easy recipes and everything to do with flowers. Naturally there will also be some adventures with our Border Terrier Millie along the way.
Just before I go any further – you should know I love flowers. For me flowers are a perfect way of showing someone you care, whether it's in joyous times or times when there are no easy words to find. Having them in my house brings me great joy and they are my number one accessory and as a result feature a lot in my home and garden.
It was this love and passion for flowers that encouraged me to embark on a floristry course at the Cambridge Flower School. I’d been considering doing some for a while but it wasn’t until last year when my husband kept asking me (in a slightly panicked voice) what I would like for Christmas that I considered enrolling. My work contract had just come to an end so it was a perfect opportunity to bite the bullet and give it a go. And from that very first course in January 2019 Flowers and Lifestyle was born. My website and journey into social media followed and I will shortly be opening an online shop selling some of my home floral arrangements and bouquets so watch this space. I’ll regularly be posting blogs and updates on Instagram and twitter so sign up if you wish to be kept up to date on everything Margot.
