Stems of Windsor at Royal Windsor Flower Show

We are delighted to be taking part in The Royal Windsor Flower Show for the first time!

I will be making dried flower crowns. I have been concerned by the amount of plastic and fake flowers adorning the buildings and interiors in Windsor. dried flowers are beautiful, and most importantly, real!

Happy Easter to all our clients

Easter Bouquet

I love the colours of yellow, white and green for Easter – yellow yolks, pretty primroses, dancing daffodils, leaves unfurling on the trees.

Stems shop window

A few years back, we made this fun window display with eggs tumbling from a nest. This was in our beautiful shop in Sicilian Avenue, Holborn. We have since moved to Windsor, with an equally attractive shop.

If you’re buying flowers for the Easter weekend, the lovely daffodils are good value. Not the most long-lasting of flowers, they look best on their own. Tulips are the same – just a generous bunch in a vase looks great. Change the water every day, and snip a bit off the stems.

If you’re looking for a more long-lasting option, choose lilies, orchids or callas. I like to add birch or pussy willow to make them look spring-like.

Lily of the valley and paper whites

For something very special, choose lily of the valley. This posy also contains paper white narcissi and is highly scented.

The weather forecast is good for the weekend, so many of us will take to our gardens and begin pruning and planting – and no doubt, a few barbecues will be lit!

Happy Easter!

Weddings in Windsor and the best Flowers to choose

Stems of Windsor opened in April 2021, having moved from Holborn, central London.

With the pandemic still causing chaos to businesses, it was unknown territory, but we quickly gained some new clients, and brought many of our London clients with us.

In the summer, weddings at Hedsor House and Coworth Park kept us busy, as well as many smaller weddings locally.

hotter and more dramatic

Wedding at The Sir Christopher Wren Hotel

Now we’re a year on, and the beautiful spring flowers have arrived.

We are so lucky to have the beautiful Guildhall as a wedding venue in Windsor. it stands at the foot of Windsor Castle, on High Street.

I love to use seasonal flowers. Here are some of the best this year – hellebores, ranunculus, astrantia…

Christmas flowers at Stems of Windsor

We started with our Christmas flowers a couple of weeks ago, with two installations at restaurants.

Sustainable seasonal installation at The Frog by Adam Handling, Covent Garden.

We used carpet moss, tillandsia, cotton, cones, limonium and thistle.

The Fox and Hounds, Bishopsgate

We made scented garland of blue pine, dried fruit, Scandi style wooden decorations, cones and twigs to decorate the beautiful Fox and Hounds in Englefield Green.

Wedding at The Loch and The Tyne

My favourite place, because the food is amazing, the ambience is wonderful and it’s on my doorstep – The Loch and the Tyne.
