Country Homes & Interiors, the Judith Blacklock Flower School and Rococo Chocolates invite you to an exclusive readers’ day of inspirational Christmas ideas. Join us on either Wednesday 16th or Friday 18th November 2011. The event will take place in the heart of Knightsbridge, London, at the Rococo Chocolates’ shop and the Judith Blacklock Flower School.
Judith will demonstrate how to create simple seasonal floral decorations and you will make a hand-tied bouquet to take away with you. At Rococo Chocolates, discover how to make truffles (also to take away) and learn about the history of chocolate and how it is made today. Readers will be divided into two groups, with each attending either the flower arranging or chocolate session in the morning and then swapping over in the afternoon. Enjoy a glass of champagne between sessions, before sitting down to a light, two-course lunch at Belgravia’s famous bar and restaurant, Motcombs.
