Apologies for the lack of posts in recent weeks but our feet have hardly touched the ground during the Summer.
We have supplied flowers to a record number of Brides and Flower Arrangers this year both locally and nationally via our overnight courier service and are already taking bookings for 2014 and 2015. Judging by the Testimonials we have received, similar to this one, we certainly seem to be ‘getting it right’
Flowers arrived before 9am this morning – the hydrangeas in particular are stunning – so pleased!
Thank you! Carol
Yesterday we were delighted to supply the flowers for the commissioning ceremony in Portsmouth Dockyard of the Royal Navy’s newest destroyer HMS Duncan. Having previously supplied presentation bouquets for the homecomings of her sister ships HMS Dauntless & HMS Diamond it was a privilege to be involved in this special event.
We are currently in the process of finalising our Christmas Programme of events and will post the details on the website in the coming days but can already announce we are to hold another of our popular Bridal Flower Open Days on Saturday 23rd November (see Events page for full details or visit our dedicated Bridal Flower site www.bridalflowersdirect.com) for full details. If you know anyone who is planning a wedding in the coming months do please let them know.
Nursery Fresh were delighted to welcome Flower Arrangers to a demonstration by Liz Pelley entitled ‘Church Wedding Flowers’ at their premises in Horndean on Saturday afternoon. The idea behind the theme of the demonstration was to show arrangers new and innovative arrangements using traditional flowers and working within the tight constraints of Church wedding budgets. Whilst creating several arrangements from pew ends to pedestals, Liz also passed on money saving tips and ideas all of which she has gained from her years of church flower arranging. All those who attended commented on how much they had enjoyed the demonstration and left feeling inspired to re-create some of the arrangements in their own churches. A big thank you to Liz and all those who attended.
Below is a selection of photos taken during the demonstration.
Nursery Fresh hosted the third of it’s flower workshops today.
Ten ladies were treated to a demonstration by Nursery Fresh designer Rebecca Warwick, before creating their own fantastic Christmas table decorations to take home.
Nursery Fresh plans to host several of these intimate workshops throughout next year, with varying themes.
With a maximum of only 10 participants, a relaxed and enjoyable time is guaranteed .
If you are interested in participating in a workshop, or can get together 8-10 friends for your own private class, then call Sally Waddington on 023 9259 1422 for details.
