I have plenty of ideas for lots of projects and will keep you updated, please get in touch if you require any flowers but for now, kick your feet up, relax and get possession of that remote control before someone else does!!

 

Flowers for Wedding Cars

I love a request to put flowers together, hang on that’s why I’m here isn’t it? Yes but I love it. So I was excited to provide these designs to a local chauffeur service for their wedding appointments.

I made a small arrangement in artificial flowers to be placed on the parcel shelf in one of the cars and a garland for the front shelf in a mini bus. The flowers I used were ivory Lily’s, Roses and Stephanotis and I accompanied those with some green Ivy, Wisteria, and  Eucalyptus.

The small arrangement can also be used for a table decoration for a wedding or event and garlands also can be used at events in many different ways. They can be twisted around candleholders or placed along the front of a top table at your wedding. They can also be made in any colour to match your preference in fresh or artificial flowers. Oh so many ideas, makes a creative brain like mine nearly burst with excitement to be honest.

It was such a pleasure to provide these designs to Kevin from Nottingham Chauffeurs and Derby Chauffeurs and I hope he enjoys our flowers. I have included his details below so if you are looking to hire VIP cars for any event or journey then please take a look as there is quite a remarkable fleet to choose from.

Christmas Planters

Now I’ve never been a big fan of plants so much, I do keep a few in the garden but always felt a pull more towards flowers than plants, well until now.

I do love these mixed planters as they make an excellent gift idea and they look really pretty. My mum is plant crazy, w can never pass a garden centre without going in and buying the whole plant section. You know that scene in Jaws where they are hunting the shark itself and there is that classic line ‘we’re gonna need a bigger boat’ well I quote a similar line which is ‘we’re gonna need a bigger car’ when it comes to plant buying with my mum.

Yes you’ve guessed it, she has already snapped one of these up and they have actually given me a new love for plants, I may reconsider now and learn to love the plant. It has given me a bit of inspiration for more ideas for gifts as an alternative to flowers. As florists we have to keep our minds open to new ideas all the time.

Feel free to contact me about anything you see here or for any of your floral requirements.

Thank you for reading.

Christmas Arrangements and Wreaths

I think I’m getting a little excited for the festive period as I’ve gone wreath crazy. They are really enjoyable to make up and as floristry crosses over to crafting it involves a glue gun, my favourite piece of equipment.

I’ve added two more artificial wreaths to the collection which are a little smaller than some of the others I have done. These are 14″ (35cm)and include cream and gold decorations, a glittery rose, hypericum berries and wooden Christmas toppers. The red one pictured is decorated with artificial poinsettia flowers and red berries.

I also made a flower arrangement within a cracker, this can be made in artificial or fresh flowers and makes a great table decoration or a feature on a mantlepiece. The crackers are available in gold (pictured), silver and red.

So please get in touch if you see anything you like or for any flower requests. Follow me on Pinterest, Instagram and please feel free to join me on Facebook.
