Making Dreams Come True
Hello and welcome to Tales From Apple Tree House.
A little bit about me!
My name is Anna. I'm a mum of 3 (nearly) grown up children and live and work from my home based studio in Battle, East Sussex. I started my working career as a printed textile designer then went on to work in the fashion business as a Buyer. After 10 years in the fashion industry I decided to leave to pursue my dream. To work with flowers. The rest, as they say, is history......
Turning dreams into reality
The Apple Tree House Studio is where I do most of my floral work and host many of my workshops. It over looks the cutting beds and garden. The cutting beds have been developing over the last 5 years, something that started as a hobby but now supplies many of my floral designs. It's still very much a learning journey but one I love. I usually have my Jack Russel, Charlie on hand as my sidekick when I'm working alone and a team of skilled freelancers that arrive for events and wedding work. It's also a bit of a family affair with all three of my teenage kids helping to take down events with me and my daughter helping learn the ropes, setting up with me, loading the van and generally being a very wonderful sidekick. She's also my model when I need someone in shot! My youngest has also been known to lend a hand to hold a bouquet for a photo, much to his horror.
My flowery journey is documented via my blog and on Instagram.
Hopefully you will join me at some point and we can create something beautiful together.
