Spring in bloom at Eleanor House

flower arranging - North London - Eleanor House

The arrival of spring was celebrated at McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living PLUS development in St Albans, Eleanor House, when homeowners and staff became florists for the day at a masterclass led by Mother and Daughter duo Cindy and Samantha Jackson from Perfect Moment Florists.  

The homeowners’ lounge at the development on London Road was its blooming best, as everyone took part in a flower-arranging workshop.  All those who attended the event had the opportunity to put together a bouquet full of their favourite flowers, under the expert eye of visiting Florists Cindy and Samantha, who shared their passion for all things floral, as well as the benefit of their combined 62-years of experience.

Everyone also enjoyed a selection of tea and nibbles, while they took the time to admire each-others’ seasonal arrangements; and one lucky attendee won two tickets to RHS Wisley’s “Butterflies in the Glasshouse”, which has been sponsored by McCarthy and Stone.

Tracey Muponda, Estates Manager at Eleanor House, said: “With the dark days of winter behind us, it was wonderful to get everyone at Eleanor House together for a very spring-like celebration – and a reminder that the gardens here will soon be busting full off buds, blossoms and blooms. 

“We certainly have a lot of talented homeowners here – and the many green-fingered retirees at Eleanor House made the most of the opportunity to learn a new skill in Floristry, just in time for spring!”
