String of pearls are back in stock. We had lots of enquiries about them this week so we made sure we sourced some for you. Did you know that the senecio rowleyanus (that is the string of pearl plant’s Latin name) is very fast growing and can reach 60-90cm in length?
It’s the middle of January, currently 1 degree and everyone’s talking about the impending Blue Monday. Well, pah! to that. We’re starting 2019 as we mean to go on; every few weeks we’ll be giving something back to the local community of people we love, with our Random Acts of Kindness campaign. But we need your help! Head over to our Facebook page and nominate someone on the post whose day you would like to brighten, we’ll pick a winner and deliver a FREE bouquet of flowers to them…just because! You have until midnight tonight and we’ll make the delivery tomorrow, Saturday 19th January….in time to starve off Blue Monday 😊 We’ll be running Random Acts of Kindness throughout the year, so there’s plenty of opportunity to get involved and put a smile on someone’s face. Please make sure your lucky-someone lives within a 3 mile radius of our shop in Didsbury. Full T&Cs on the Facebook post Let’s spread some kindness… 📸 @jonnydraperfoto
Today Grace and I are heading to @topdrawerlondon to source new stock for the year ahead. We will be looking for unusual vases and plant pots to go along side our existing range and we’re keeping our eyes peeled for new items. If you head over to our stories we would love to know if there any products that you would like us to stock in the shop.
Wow...what a Wedding! It was a pleasure to be asked to create the flowers for @tinaob83 and @adamcrofts for their New Year’s Eve wedding at @eclectic_hotels . I loved how involved Tina in the whole wedding planning process. Tina loves texture and delicate flowers so we incorporated these in to the designs along with some fuller flowers for the backdrop. We used lots of varieties of beautiful flowers in wintery berry tones with an abundance of @irishgreenguys eucalyptus. It was an honour to work along side @thesoireestylists, @knockknockpennystudio, @thewordislove, @marieantoinettecakes_uk, @knutsford_wedding_gallery, @weddings_at_eclectichotels and not forgetting my amazing team of florists on the day. Mark, Adam, Grace, Emily and Steve, we couldn’t have done it without you! We can’t wait to see the second issue of @ok_mag next week with photos of their wedding breakfast and hopefully the statement staircase design that you might have seen on our stories the other day 😃
I’m not sure about you but our home feels empty without the tree. It feels as though the house needs life breathing in to it. We have a huge plant delivery arriving today with plants ranging from bedside table size to Christmas tree size. I think a few may have to come home with me for research purposes of course 😉 If there are any plants that you would like us to stock let me know and I will see what I can source for you 🌱
We’re very busy with wedding consultations at the moment for 2019/2020 weddings at the moment which is giving us the perfect excuse to look through some of the beautiful weddings that we worked on last year. This stunning wedding was at @owenhouseweddingbarn and we think this framework looks perfect suspended above the top table. If you are looking to discuss wedding flowers with us please get in touch on the wedding page of our website (link in bio). The dates are filling up fast so we have limited availability 📸 @kylehassallphotography
