Happy Anniversary

This is our beautiful bouquet we have named Happy Anniversary. We gave it this name when we created it for a dear friend’s wedding anniversary. I love the rich red of the roses with the purples – strong colours that hold their own beside one another.

In contrast, this pale bouquet of gentle whites, pinks and greens that we have named Mon Petit Chou, makes a suitable gift for many occasions. It contains white agapanthuus, white roses, cabbages and foliage, including myrtle and berried ivy.

Wild World

This part foraged bouquet includes cabbages, celosia, teasel and berried ivy with pussy willow and trailing amaranthus. I love the wild, natural look of it. I love the diversity of the requests we get for flowers too.

Autumn as a season is best eeflected in the golds, green and rusts of the changing leaves and the golden sunshine, with a touch of blue/grey clouds. This bouquet, which you can find in our Autumn Specials in the online shop, depicts just that.

The purples, mauves and whites of summer are still available. This bouquet was purple, white and green, and delivered in a vase for a guest at a local hotel. Long stemmed roses, lisianthus and limonium with cabbages and pussy willow in a clear glass vase.

The offices in Holborn are still literally empty. I know many people like working from home, and it’s safer than travelling to the office, but it’s having a devastating effect on the Hospitality industry. Let’s hope a vaccine is found soon, and we can return to some sort of normailty.

Wedding flowers ideas

Wedding flowers are a joy to design! Such an important day, and we are the right people to help create the fairy-tale look for your flowers!

The softer tones are definitely popular at the moment. We love the vintage shades in bouquets, including the gorgeous Memory Lane roses. The introduction of clematis to the cut flower collection adds the wild look, as well as Green Bell, which looks like Shepherd’s purse, with its tiny, heart-shaped leaves.

Eucalyptus is the favoured foliage, keeping the look very gentle. Astilbe is wild and wispy, and the spring ranunculae look like little peonies.

We recommend going for either the palest peaches with soft green and white, or the vintage pinks. They both have a very gentle, serene look.

If you’re having rectangular dining tables for your wedding or event, little clusters of vases look fab, perhaps interspersed with candles.

Circular tables can have a ring of flowers, surrounding a storm lantern with a candle, or filled with flowers.

It’s a good idea to create a Pinterest board for your florist, which can show the feel you want for your day – dresses, venues, flowers you love….

We have been supplying wedding flowers for over thirty years, and have seen all the changing trends – and returning trends! The best thing about now is the vast selection of flowers there are to choose from. From big Colombian roses to the tiniest, snowflake rosebuds, from indigenous, English country garden blooms to exotic orchids fron the Far East.

roses and romance


Roses have always been associated with romance ” My love is like a red, red rose…”
We have the luxury of so many colours available all year round, with imports from all over the world. One of my favourites is Memory Lane – a vintage pink, long-lasting rose that opens beautifully. If you have a particular colour rose you’d like to send, give us a call on 020 7831 6776 or mobile 07932 052411 or email janet@stemsfloraldesign.com
