A Fabulously Flower-Filled Event At The Florist!

A Fabulously Flower-Filled Event At The Florist!

Hey everyone!

I recently attended my second event as a blogger and man was it fun! If you haven’t read about my first one at the Harbour Hotel Spa yet, you can check it out here. My Bristol blogger pal Becky kindly invited me along as her +1 as due to being a little off the radar recently due to illness, I must’ve missed the sign up for this event. You can give Beckys blog a view here as she will also have a post up on the event and some lovely photos!

According to the invitation, the event began at 6:30pm. The prompt and panicky person that I am, of course we arrived a bit early but they were super kind and let us in to get some fabulous photos of the interiors before it filled out. We were also informed that it was a free bar (cue “This Is What Dreams Are Made Of” playing in the background) and given an optional schedule for the evening. We chose our first cocktails, I went for “Violet Bloom” and Becky went for the “Elderflower and Lychee Daiquiri”, both terrific tasting and decorated with super cute flowers.

People just kept coming round with platters of indulgent and incredibly decorated cocktails, who could say no to that?

We headed on over to the Photography workshop which began at 7pm. We all know photos are usually what draws people in to anything on the internet so I was very much excited for it. With The Florist being a cocktail bar and restaurant, of course they were focusing on capturing the essence of food and drink. It was brilliant to learn a few extra tips about the composition of items in a shot and some basic bits about camera settings to accentuate certain parts of an image. We then took advantage of the beautiful flower displays in the top room and captured a few photographs. I can’t believe how stunningly this place is designed and decorated – is it bad I already want to have the reception of my future wedding here?

We then headed on down to the recipe masterclass but couldn’t see all that much as it was quite crowded so we swooped in at the end to sample some food. There was warm, fresh bread, goats cheese dip with what tasted like chive and onion flavouring alongside polenta, sweet potato and regular chips and the most gorgeous (and vegan!) mayonnaise I have ever tasted. I hadn’t had any dinner and I was a few cocktails down so making a chip and mayonnaise sandwich was quite literally the best idea in the world at that point.

There were a few other things going on like a gin mixology masterclass and flower arranging but by that point everywhere was extremely busy. We took it upon ourselves to explore The Florist as it is a huge place with lots of different rooms and some beyond fabulous decor. After doing so, Becky and I decided to grab a final cocktail and find a quiet corner to chill and chat about the night. Upon leaving I also kindly received a tote bag with the logo printed on containing a fresh sample of the tasty goats cheese dip, a miniature bottle of vodka and a can of mango pale ale which sounds so yummy!

I think Bristol is an absolutely perfect location for The Florist. It is super funky and oozes sophistication with brilliant attention to detail in its interior design. The Florist serves a wide range of delicious drinks and from what I have seen and tasted, innovative and incredibly flavoursome food. I really cannot wait to come back here with my other half for a date night to try a full meal and test the dining experience which i’m sure will be just as delightful.

A HUGE thank you to The Florist for such a wonderful event. Have you been to an opening event before?

’Til Next Time,
BTB Xx

    This sounds like the loveliest time! I’m glad you both had fun. The cocktails all sound so yummy, and the mango pale ale you got in your gift bag sounds particularly amazing. I’d have been most excited by the sweet potato fries if I’m being honest. It’s so cool that they had little tips for how to capture things, I’d love to go to something like this x
