We are excited to announce an incredibly special book launch with Annabelle Hickson.
Join us for the Brisbane launch of Annabelle’s incredibly beautiful and stylish book ‘A Tree in the House’.
Guests will enjoy a drink on arrival and canapés followed by a two course dinner. All guests will receive a signed copy of Annabelle’s new book 'A Tree in the House'.
We are thrilled to announce that special guest Gillian Bell will MC the evening, including a Q&A session. This creative duo of Gillian and Annabelle bring all the warmth and joy of gardening, cooking and country life together and are best known for their popular podcast 'Dispatch to a Friend'.
This is what Annabelle has to say about her book:
“My book was conceived as a how-to-do-the-flowers book primarily, but the more I got into it I realised it needed to be a book about seeing the beauty around you, wherever you are and what ever budget you have. You don’t have to be a trained florist, or particularly artistic and you don’t have to have deep pockets. Flowers and the simple joy that accompanies them can be for everyone.’
Date Thursday 28th March 2019
Time 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start
Cost $150pp includes a copy of book
