Christmas Planters

fullsizeoutput_314

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.

Happy Birthday Bouquet

I provided this bouquet for a special lady’s 60th Birthday and decided to decorate the box to that theme. I think it makes the box a little more exciting and personalises it to the individual.

These boxes are great as the bouquet can sit in it’s bag of water and the flowers are not overcome by a lot of cellophane and tissue paper, so much better for the environment. Get me trying to save the planet, well it makes sense.

I filled the box with Pink Roses, Pink Wax Flower, White Lisianthus, and some nice Green Ruscus and I finished off with a hessian bow. The golden glittery number 60 was added complete with a couple of champagne glasses, a happy birthday tag on the front and a celebrate tag on the bag……well it is worth celebrating! Any excuse for me.

If you have a celebration coming up or you would like a themed bouquet for someone special please get in touch. You may have someone who loves cupcakes or tea, maybe they are a cat lover or dog lover – I can design a bouquet for every interest. Different eh?

I will include more as I go on so watch this space.

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.
