Christmas Workshops

We are now feeling well and truly festive having held two of our Christmas workshops. Today and last Thursday the groups created beautiful arrangements under the guidance of our principle floral designer Rebecca Warwick. For their first design the ladies filled a willow basket with a succulent plant, silver Eryngium, moss and stunning white Amaryllis to create a beautiful table arrangement whilst for the second design a florette was decorated with white Carnations and spray Carnations, Noble Fir, Pine Cones and other Christmas decorations of their choosing. This design could either be made as a table centrepiece or for hanging from a door. As you can see from the photographs below a great time was had by all those who attended

Busy, Busy

Our feet have hardly touched the ground in the past two weeks as we begin the lead up to Christmas.

On Saturday 15th November we once again welcomed NAFAS Demonstrator Gill Smaggasgale for a Winter Demonstration entitled ‘Have You Ever Stopped to Wonder’ which started with Gill reciting the first verse of a Christmas  Carol she wrote as a child for a Blue Peter Christmas Carol competition. Gill delighted everyone with displays all with a Christmas theme interspersed with ‘Stocking Fillers’ of individual arrangements which gave everyone inspiration for their own Christmas decorations. The demonstration ended with the remainder of the Christmas Carol and raffling off of all the arrangements in aid of Rowan’s Hospice for which we raised an amazing £90.

Last Saturday was our Bridal Flower Open Day which was attended by in excess of 50 Brides / Grooms and their families. We were inundated with enquiries and now have a busy few weeks compiling quotes and meeting with couples who booked appointments for consultations with us. It was lovely to see so many people and we were also delighted to be joined by local companies Eliza Mabel, Queen Bees Treats, Carro’s Cakes, Hana Venn Photography and Quaint and Quirky Event Hire who all loved being part of the day.

Next on the event schedule are our Christmas Open House mornings which take place on Saturday 29th November and Monday 1st December from 10.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. Do join us for a coffee and a mince pie and a chance to view our range of Christmas sundries. We also now have in stock bags of Spagnum Moss, Noble Fir Bundles and 12″ Noble Fir Wreath Frames.

We do also still have some places left on our Christmas Workshops which take place on Thursday 11th December and Tuesday 16th December from 10.00 – 12.30. These Workshops are always great fun and enjoyed by all those who attend. Please contact us for further details.

Unbelievably Christmas is now only a month away so do let us have your Christmas flower orders and we will look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks

Bridal Flower Open Day

We will be hosting another of our highly popular Bridal Flower Open Days on Saturday 22nd November from 10.00 am – 4.00 pm at our premises in Horndean. If you or anyone you know is planning a wedding in the coming months do pop along. We will all be on hand to show you an extensive display of Bridal Party and Venue Arrangements and our cold store will be filled with a wide selection of cut flowers. No appointment is necessary and we look forward to meeting you.

Flower Workshop

Last week we once again held a tailor made workshop for our group of ladies known as the ‘Flower Fairies’ who were also joined by our own Clare Hodgson. They had requested a workshop covering Bridal bouquets, buttonholes and corsages and were delighted with their work under the guidance of our Principle Floral Designer Rebecca Warwick. Much laughter accompanied what became a fun filled afternoon of floristry. If you would like to get a few friends together for a similar workshop on a theme of your choice do let us know. We are also holding Christmas themed Workshops on Thursday 11th December and Tuesday 16th December and we still have free spaces on both so please let us know if you are interested in attending.
