Happy New Year

fullsizeoutput_366

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.

Flowers for Wedding Cars

IMG_2141

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.

Rose Gift Trees

IMG_1919These gift trees are a real treat to make. They consist of  lovely roses with a diamonte pins if desired and chocolates in the pot base.

I’ve made these up in many different colours to suit and if you don’t fancy chocolates you could have a selection of bath bombs, scented candles, tea bags it’s really up to you. Also as an added touch it can be personalised.

If you’re not requiring a gift, maybe you are holding an event, well these can make an alternative table decoration. You could have one sitting in your company reception area and refill the base with treats for your customers or clients. It just goes to show there are many uses for this design.

I love looking for different ideas apart from sending fresh flowers, although the classic bouquet will always remain a bit of a favourite for me. That’s what I love about any floral design, it can be large or small, little or bursting with colour and classic or contemporary, I’ve been lucky to make many different designs.

I hope to be share more with you in the future so come back soon.

 

Thank you for passing by.
