Alavana Place is full of floral displays after spring workshop 

Alavana Place, our beautiful Retirement Living community for the over 60s in Kendal, Cumbria, was filled with flowers as well as homeowners and guests at our spring flower arranging masterclass this month. 

Katie Davis from Made in Flowers shared her top tips on floral designs during the session, using spring flowers including tulips, carnations and Eucalyptus. 

Louise Flynn, Divisional Marketing Manager for McCarthy Stone, said: “We were so excited to see the turn out and it was lovely to see the beautiful bouquets dotted around Alavana Place.”  

Katie, adds: “It was so much fun to visit Alavana Place and celebrate the spring season. Flower arranging is becoming increasingly popular as a way to connect with nature and the changing seasons. It was lovely to meet everyone and work together to create all the arrangements.”
