The weekend is getting closer and I am surrounded by flowers and foliage to pull together for the show. We are excited to be providing the bouquets for the opening catwalk show and looking forward to find out which bridal designer we will be teamed with.
Our stand will be a continuation of bouquets offering brides the unique chance to touch and hold a bouquet before the big day - bouquets of all shapes and sizes available for you to hold and take a selfie to help you make a decision for your big day.

Cooling Castle Wedding

Mon, 27/07/2015 - 14:42 -- Marion

I love the opportunity to work at this very popular and beautiful venue in the middle of the Kent countryside. We spent a whole Saturday morning preparing for the wedding of Melanie and Stephen on 25th July. With 117 guests filling 11 tables we had our work cut out. We decorated the tables with lily vases filled with draping natural arrangements of peonies, roses and garden-like foliage, adding mirror plates, tealights and sprinkles of petals. Even every napkin was decorated with a flower! The top table was dressed with a mismatch of jars filled with roses and sprigs of foliage.

Funeral Sheaf

Wed, 06/05/2015 - 11:30 -- Marion

If buying funeral flowers this week you might want to consider a handtied sheaf arrangement. This is a modern arrangement and suitable for family members aswell as friends or work colleagues. Opt for a large flower such as sunflowers, lilies, gerberas or even a tropical flower - either blend with similar colours or go bold with contrasting colours to suit personality.

Change of Seasons

Wed, 29/04/2015 - 14:29 -- Marion

As the seasons change from Spring into Summer there is a transformation of available flowers on the market. Although it's a shame to see my favourite tulips and daffodils gradually disappear the range of Summer flowers is enormous and these are the best months to visit the flower markets.

Sunflowers are in abundance, stocks appear in all colours and I cannot wait to buy peonies to include in my flower arrangements (plus a sneaky few stems to keep at home!) Look out for the gorgeous Sarah Bernhardt Peonies in pale pink with ruffles upon ruffles of petals.
