If you are still struggling with Christmas gift ideas for family or friends why not order a fresh flower bouquet or table centrepiece from us. With bouquets starting from £25 and table arrangements from £30 they make an ideal gift. Local delivery is included in the cost and if you need the gift to reach further afield, bouquets can be sent via overnight courier for an additional £10. Please call us on 023 9259 1422 to discuss your specific requirements (varying colour choices available).
If you wish to be more creative we can supply all the flowers, foliage and sundry items you may need to make your own Christmas displays (either locally or nationally) so do either pop in or call us to place your order ready for collection on the day of your choosing.
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
As promised we are delighted to announce details of our forthcoming programme of events some or all of which we hope you will be able to attend.
We are delighted to have booked NAFAS Demonstrator Irene Hickson for our Christmas Demonstration and whilst Irene is playing her cards very close to her chest regarding the displays she will be creating “Festive Fantasy” is certainly an intriguing theme.
Tickets for Demonstrations we have held during the past year have sold out rapidly so do book up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Our pre-Christmas workshops proved very popular and incredible fun last year so whatever your experience of Flower Arranging do try and attend one of these – if either of these dates are not suitable for you why not try and get a group of friends together and we can tailor make a workshop for you.
We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks
Following last years successful event, The Brookfield Hotel in Emsworth said a festive ‘thank you’ to companies who regularly use the hotel for business conferences and corporate lunches and dinners, by treating the staff, who make the bookings, to a master class in Christmas Wreath making given by Nursery Fresh Flowers.
The demonstration was given by Rebecca Warwick, who previously owned Emsworth Flowers and who now, following a break to have children, is a floral designer for the Horndean based florists. Nursery Fresh Managing Director, Sally Waddington and Company Secretary Claire Wadsworth were on hand to give advice to the participants.
The evening was the first of two hosted by the hotel and the ladies enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing and therapeutic ninety minutes sipping mulled wine, eating mince pies and creating some superb wreaths which they were then able to take home.
If your company would like to offer clients or staff a relaxing and therapeutic ‘floral experience’ at any time of the year, then contact Sally Waddington who will give you details of our workshops.
