Old Friends, New Beginnings…
As specialists in floristry holidays and travel, we are proud of our long-standing friendship and partnership with the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS). For over fifteen years, we have provided expertly curated tours to some of the world’s most exciting global floristry events both for clubs wishing to travel as a group and individual members who like to travel with like-minded people.
We believe in the continued legacy of NAFAS, its importance in spreading knowledge, joy, friendship, and beauty. NAFAS is a ‘national treasure’ to celebrate and safeguard for future generations. It is for these reasons that we are delighted to have renewed our partnership and look forward to new beginnings of sharing our love of travel and flower friendship.
Mutually ensuring the NAFAS Legacy
Did you know, we make an annual donation to NAFAS so by booking one of our NAFAS branded tours you are also helping to preserve the legacy of this marvellous and important institution.
Message for NAFAS Area Chairmen:
Theresa is always delighted to hear from you! Perhaps you would like her to assist in creating a special tour programme for your Area? Do you have an event you would like Theresa to attend, she can provide an informal talk on WAFA, our longstanding relationship, supporting the fabulous work of NAFAS or what floral elements to enjoy in a particular tour destination such as Singapore? If you have an Area Day, Theresa always welcomes the opportunity to support and attend.
Regional and local clubs are vital in promoting and partaking in our NAFAS tours as this strengthens the organisation as a whole and helps support your local groups.

Did you know:?
While you can book any of our NAFAS branded tours as an individual, with a friend or small friendship group – you may not realise we still offer group tours for clubs that may like to travel together by coach or air.
We can organise staycations, visiting fabulous UK gardens, flower growers and stately homes. We can even include evening events such as floral demonstrations or talks.
Europe is always a delight to travel to, from the Netherlands, Belgium and France, going by coach with a group gives you added sense of adventure, travelling door-to-door, plenty of space for shopping and exciting visits along the way.
