‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace

Nursery Fresh is delighted to have once again worked with Jane Rickard and the flower arrangers of Surrey NAFAS in supplying the flowers for ‘Florimania’ at Hampton court Palace this weekend.

This year’s event entitled “Ladies with Flowers” will include floral displays and flower arranging demonstrations inspired by some of the most notable garden-loving Queens from Queen Mary II and her collection of exotic plants at Hampton Court Palace to Queen Charlotte at Kew Gardens.

Below are a few photos taken during the flowers sorting and delivery stages and we hope to post photos of the finished results soon.

Following our delivery of all the plant material earlier in the week it was lovely to receive the following email from Jane Rickard

“Just to say a big thank you for the simply gorgeous selection of flowers that you delivered to us today.  Really fabulous and as well organised as usual.

 It is always a pleasure to work with you all.

 Love

Jane x”

HAPPY EASTER

It has been an exceptionally busy week at Nursery Fresh – it has been lovely seeing so many Flower Arrangers from our local Cathedrals and Churches coming in to buy their Easter flowers from us. We have also dispatched several orders for churches further afield via our overnight delivery service.

We wish you all a very happy Easter and look forward to seeing you all again in the coming months  – fingers crossed for a busy wedding season too

 

HAND TIED BOUQUET WORKSHOP

 

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.

 

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

 

DIY Wedding Flowers

A lovely email to share with you from a customer who picked up an order from us last week for her son’s wedding. Whilst we had been asked to supply the Bridal Party Arrangements, the Groom’s Mother wished to create the church and marquee arrangements herself.

Dear Sally,

Very many thanks for supplying such amazing flowers for us. Sarah was absolutely thrilled with the bouquets, you got them just right.

I’ve attached a few photos of the end result, I was quite proud of myself!

Thank you, Tessa.

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
