Flowers in Holborn to brighten the short days


We keep a beautiful stock of flowers in Holborn, and specialise in speedy same day delivery in the local areas of Holborn, Bloomsbury, Covent Garden, the City and the West End.
It always amazes me how different colours of the flowers look in the changing seasons – orange roses become almost luminous in autumn, the pinks don’t look as soft as in summer, the browns and golds match the falling leaves of nature and the golden, autumn sunshine.

We’ve had the usual run of interesting customers lately, including a lady whose wedding flowers we supplied in the early 99’s! She hadn’t been back since, and was delighted to find us still in Sicilian Avenue after all these years.
Then there was the guy secretly in love with a girl at work, a bouquet for a film set, plus birthday bouquets, thank you bouquets and new baby gifts.

Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t like the Christmas window display to go in too early. But I suppose it’s about time, with Christmas office parties starting at the beginning of December.

Holly, mistletoe, blue pine, cones and cinnamon smells so good. We like to keep our displays as natural as possible. Luckily, blue pine, ilex and cones are very log-lasting, so you can buy well before Christmas.

We are very excited to be appearing at The Chelsea Flower Show next year, and we’re busy designing a beautiful Shakespeare garden for our booth, which is for Gerit Quealy’s amazing book, Botanical Shakespeare. It covers all the plants, trees, herba and flowers in Shakespeare’s works.

If you need to send flowers in Holborn and surrounding areas, do give us a call on 020 7831 6776 or email janet@stemsfloraldesign.com. We also have an online shop for your convenience. You can call if you’d like to discuss your requirements. We supply flowers for weddings and corporate events.

Florist in central London


As a florist in central London for the past 32 years, ( we are in Sicilian Avenue, Bloomsbury), I’ve seen many changes in the flower industry.
The biggest changes have been the supermarkets taking a larger share of flower sales, and of course, the internet.
Many shops used to survive on orders from a relay company, such as Interflora or Teleflorist, but with the help of Google, people can now contact a shop direct in any given area.
A good florist will always do something far better than anything you will find in a supermarket. Most florists are passionate about flowers, and you’ll end up with something special.
With the big day, (Valentine’s) approaching, make sure you place your order in plenty of time. We can source almost any flower, grade A1, and deliver a beautiful bouquet to your loved one.
