Shakespeare 400 Anniversary Flowers

Little did we know when we were asked to supply flowers to one of our customers in Stratford that her arrangement would appear in the national press as it was paraded through the streets of the city as part of the celebrations to mark the 400th Anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare last weekend.

We can supply flowers to virtually any location in mainland UK via our overnight courier service so if you need flowers for any occasion please do get in touch to discuss your specific requirements

HAMPTON COURT ‘FLORIMANIA’ 2016

It has, once again, been our pleasure to work with the Surrey Area of NAFAS in supplying the flowers for ‘Florimania’ 2016 which takes place at Hampton Court Palace this weekend.

During the weeks leading up to the event, we work with Jane Rickard of Surrey NAFAS in collating the orders which are then placed with our suppliers for delivery to us the day before they are delivered to Hampton Court. We then have a busy day sorting all the flowers into individual orders which are then transported to the Palace early in the morning, ready for distribution to the Flower Arrangers.

Below are just a few photographs taken during the delivery and distribution of the flowers and we hope to post some more of the finished displays in due course

 

Chidham Church Flower Festival

Yesterday morning we were delighted to welcome Nina Bates and her team of helpers from Chidham Church to sort the flowers for their Flower Festival. Over the past few weeks we have been working with Nina on her flower order which we then purchased directly from our suppliers in Holland. To save time on their set up day, it was decided that a small team would come over to our warehouse so they could sort the flowers into individual orders. We then delivered the flowers directly to the Church this morning.

The Flower Festival, entitled “Magna Carta – The Flowering of Democracy,” takes place at St Mary’s Church, Cot Lane, Chidham, West Sussex on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th June from 10 a.m.  – 6 p.m. and on Sunday 21st June from 12.30 – 6 p.m. Entry is free and refreshments will be available.

As you can see from the photographs below the ladies all had great fun sorting their flowers

Hampton Court ‘Florimania’ 2015

Sally was delighted to visit Hampton Court Palace on Saturday afternoon to view the exhibits created by the very talented members of Surrey Area of NAFAS for ‘Florimania 2015. All the arrangements were made using plant material supplied by Nursery Fresh with each one depicting a different era of flower arranging from the past five centuries. As you will see from the photographs below each one was stunning and it was a privilege to view such creative work. A big thank you to Hampton Court and all those involved.
