Yesterday we made our now annual trip to Hampton Court Palace to deliver the flowers for their ‘Florimania’ event this coming weekend
It was our absolute pleasure to, once again, be working with Jane Rickard and her team of flower arrangers from Surrey NAFAS
The theme for this years’ event is “Flowers from around the world: exploring the continents” so a vast array of flowers were chosen by the arrangers including the largest quantity of tropical flowers we have ever supplied
The photographs below were taken during the handout and conditioning of the flowers and we look forward to sharing photos of the finished arrangements soon
We are delighted to announce details of the following events which will take place at our premises in Horndean during November and December
Tickets for these events generally sell quite quickly so if you wish to attend please book your place as soon as possible
What beautiful weather for last weekend’s couples – fingers crossed it is a sign of things to come for the rest of the Summer.

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

This morning we were delighted to be joined by a group of ladies who had requested one of our tailor made workshops.
Under the direction of Clare the group learnt how to put together a hand tied bouquet of mixed flowers and also a small posy which would be suitable for use as a Bridesmaid bouquet at a wedding.
As you will see from the photographs below, a great time was had by all and the group have already requested another workshop in a few months time.
If you and a group of friends (minimum group of 4 people) would like to get together for your own workshop please do let us know.
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

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.
On Tuesday afternoon we welcomed a group of ladies to the warehouse who had requested a tailor made workshop. The group, who have previously named themselves ‘The Flower Fairies,’ were shown how to make a front facing modern hand tied arrangement with an autumnal theme, a corsage and finally Clare demonstrated how to feather a carnation.
Tailor made workshops can be organised for a minimum of 4 people and can generally cover any theme of your choice. If you are interested in arranging your own workshop do get in touch.
We now have our Christmas sundries on display so do come in and take a look. From pine cones and cinnamon sticks to birch and ting ting we have a wide selection of products ideally suited for creating Christmas arrangements
