Flowers for Florence

It was my birthday on Saturday! Another one! I think I’ve reached the age where it really doesn’t matter and it’s just another day.

So my husband and I headed into the city to visit the David Jones flower display. Every Spring DJ’s goes all out and decorates their Elizabeth St Store with the most magnificent floral displays. This year the theme was Florence Broadhurst so I was determined to see it.

All her fabrics were translated to floral displays in the windows and also on the ground floor of the store.

I loved the Florence-isms that were in the windows too.

I thoroughly recommend if you have not read her biography, you should. The woman was soooo ahead of her time. Reinventing herself at every turn and never, ever saying it couldn’t be done.
