Crafting floral wreaths with soul
Using wreaths as an expression of personality and emotions, Quite Quaint creates meditative arrangements that elaborate on the story of the materials used, in turn, creating a sense of well-being and gratitude. To make these picture-perfect wreaths, attendees receive a kit containing a wreath frame, fresh seasonal flowers, a variety of naturally scented decorations, ribbons, pearls and floristry wires. Rich in culture and history, wreaths are a home decor ornament that can bring a magical touch of elegance to your house all year round.
“Creating a craft on your own can give you joy and a sense of accomplishment, wreath making is one such mindful craft that not only helps you live in the present moment but also allows you to boosts your creativity by learning different types of arrangements using a variety of beautiful flowers and materials,” says Nazish Zubairy Saif, Founder and Creative Consultant of Quite Quaint.
Having hosted several floral workshops at Tania’s Teahouse and Bakers Kitchen cafe in the past, Quite Quaint is open to collaborating with quaint cafes to host more workshops. Its unique perspectives in floral designs have been crafted and installed in several UAE hot spots including Abu Dhabi Corniche, Abu Dhabi Mirabad and Al Quoz Art Fest.
