Flowers, flowers! We’ve had a very busy week with a wedding, two events and weekly office flowers, as well as many visits to the shop for birthdays, leaving gifts, new babies, anniversaries and any other occasion that warrants flowers!
It’s been so cold this week, and the plants and flowers we keep outside the shop require at least 2 degrees, so we’ve had to keep them all indoors until the temperature rises during the day.
We’ve been using these lovely echeveria succulents in our arrangements this week, and cactuses too. The shapes and textures are amazing. Mixed with cut flowers and a selection of cut foliage, they demonstrate the huge choice of flowers we can enjoy nowadays – just like the food we have on offer. This is fusion floristry!
We prepared wedding flowers for a lovely young couple today – all white and green, with clouds of gyp, hellebores, lisianthus, Athena roses, alstromeria and Green Bell with eucalyptus. They were so laid back, and decided to go for a hearty breakfast before picking up the flowers. He offered to pay, she said, “thanks” with a brilliant smile.
Everyone longs for the arrival of spring, and we try to reflect it in our January weekly office flowers. The days are becoming lighter, a sign of warmer days on the way. We use lots of bright colours – yellows and oranges that make you feel warmer!
I love all the twigs and branches at this time of year. We have pussy willow, forsythia, twisted hazel and white blossom in stock. It adds another dimension to the arrangements, and can be used again and again.
If you are hosting an event in Central London, give us a call and we will guide you through how to choose the best floral displays within your budget.
