Well it’s Christmas Eve and everything is ready for tomorrow, presents are wrapped and I think it’s time for a cheeky chocolate or two and a glass of something stronger.

I hope you have wreaths hanging on the door, table decorations at the ready for that all important Christmas meal, mistletoe hanging for a special kiss maybe?? however you spend your time enjoy it.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for taking time to read my posts and I do hope you keep on coming back to see what is going on in Suzy Blues world.

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!!

 

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.

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.

Christmas is coming!!!

Yes we have to face it Christmas is approaching fast although I haven’t seen the Coca Cola lorry on the tv yet so for me that’s when it’s official .

I did well then to get in the mood for Christmas Wreaths, thought I’d better get cracking, ha ha see what I did there – cracking – crackers, oh I’m wasted as a florist. Not really, I know, I’ll stick to the day job eh?

I loved making these wreaths up, they are all 20″ (50cm) apart from the two in the top left corner – the red one is 12″ (30cm) and the gold roses one is 16″ (40 cm). All on artificial spruce rings (red one – top left on polystyrene ring) and I’ve used a mixture of artificial flowers, and bows to decorate.

These would make a beautiful decoration to any door or to hang above a fireplace?

Not long till the tree goes up…..c’mon you know you’re ready!!

Thanks for reading, get in touch if interested in any of my designs.
