Are you getting married?

Is this your year? Are you making the jump to matrimonial bliss? You may be needing some flowers then. It’s an exciting time but also can be stressful unless you have some good people who you can go to for information and to help you make those important choices.

As a bride and groom you are the focus of your special day, everything else just compliments you as a couple and the beautiful commitment you are about to make to each other.

Your florist should be there from start to finish, advising you along the way of colours that would blend with your theme, flowers which would suit your day and most of all listen to you, a good florist won’t just sell you flowers they will sell you part of your dream.

I remember being a bride in waiting, I did all the planning for my wedding and absolutely loved it. I was so lucky to be able to draw on the experience of friends around me who were so talented in their own fields. I had the day I’d always dreamt about so I know exactly how you feel.

So what is current for this year regarding weddings? Well the shape of bouquets are down to personal preference but also need to flow with your chosen outfits. You may be someone who likes to keep things simple and elegant or go bold and vibrant, it really is up to you.  I can tell you what the chosen Pantone colour for 2018 is and that’s ‘Ultra Violet’……..

I love purple, it’s my favourite colour so I’m quite happy and it is a colour that can be blended with so many other colours making it very adaptable. It is a colour that can be injected into wedding flowers as a definite statement or subtly placed around pinks, other purples, creams and greenery to make a pastel wild ‘meadow like’ theme.

A Wild Rustic Bouquet

I do like a bit of a wild bouquet with a kind of rustic feel. It makes a change from the more traditional bouquet wrapped in cellophane which I do admire but it is nice to think outside the box a bit sometimes and design something a bit different.

This bouquet is a mix of the following flowers wrapped in a simple hessian square and tied with raffia bow.

I also took some of these flowers and made a small arrangement which is perfect standing in the living room but with an added parcel tag it would suit any table decoration for an event or a wedding.

Happy New Year

I thought I’d treat myself to a brand new pinny or should I say apron/overall for the new year. I’m hoping this apron is going to be very busy and help me to bring lovely designs to lots of people.

I hope you enjoyed the Christmas period and the New Year celebrations whether you partied until dawn or just lounged around in your pyjamas. There have been some fabulous floral designs around this Christmas, Graham Norton’s tv show won my award for most festive flowers. I was so distracted by all the flowers that I had to watch the programme again to pay attention to the guests and to Graham of course. Sorry Graham! There were flowers everywhere including a full archway too. Congratulations to the designer who created them all, so jealous! I always think it’s great to have a little envy and respect to other florists, it gives you the drive to create your own designs and gather confidence to improve.

So here we go into 2018, I wish you all the best in whatever you have planned, please bear us in mind for any special dates, events or moments where we can help make life a little easier.

Thanks for reading and join me again very soon.
