Spring is an amazing time for blooms, from bulbs to blossoms! 

Drop in and celebrate Calthorpes’ House 90th Birthday and create a posy in the garden. In this hands on activity, children will make an arrangement inspired by the flowers the Calthorpe family used to use to decorate their house. 

The Calthorpes preferred pinks, yellows and tawny orange colours, which matched the colour scheme of the house. The style of the 1920s was for open, natural looking arrangements.
