Little April showers are back

18th April 2012

Been so long since we have had a good old chat…..

We are well and truely knee-deep in beautiful weddings.  We haven’t really stopped since New Year, and we are so lucky to be the florist of choice for so many.  We have four stunning weddings this weekend.  Jim is collecting his bride to be posy and travelling afar to a private affair, and the lovely Fiona, who brings us lovely cookies for our tea, is marrying in St Peters Chapel, just across the road from us.  Also Hannah, one of our very first brides to book their wedding flowers with us when we first opened, is marrying her fiance at the ever romantic Airth Castle, and flower lover Louise marries her man in Brigadoon in Ayr.  We are very much looking forward to our Four Wedding Weekend.

We have had lots of fun in the shop of late.  Rosie has been workjing on a theme of “A door wreath is for life…and not just Christmas!!!”  and creating beauties for you spring door.  Pop in for inspiration, and chat to the lady in the know for some ideas.  Jemma has been travelling out and about, and recently headed to the Radisson Blu in Edinburgh for Sarah and Calums nuptials.  Spring was a huge part of their theme, and Sarah carried a ball of white ranunculus, and her maids carried the red variety.  Congratulation Mr and Mrs Cruickshank.  we had a fabulous time arranging your wedding flowers.  And with the amazing Rebecca Barnett on board it must have been a fab day.

Our best sellers this past few weeks have undoubtedly been our vintage perfume bottles, with a splash of coloured water and a flower of your choice for 7 pounds. And our lovely customers have been love love loving them.

So David and I had a lovely few days in Bishop Stortford with my sisters Liz and Jane, and the Bride and Groom to be, my niece Victoria and her fiance Damien, where we chatted all things flowery….with the wedding on April next year, I think I had better go shoe shopping soon….yup….hardly any time left to shop….

So i’m off to be technical assistant to the Artistic Directors, Kevin and Owen as they are creating an enchanted garden in the window tonight…very exciting…
