Come and get some flowers for Christmas! We can deliver, or you can visit our beautiful shop in Sicilian Avenue and choose grom a wonderful selection – we will have berries, blue pine, roses, amaryllis, lilies and coloured birch twigs to add sparkle. Whatever your colour scheme this year, we can design a beautiful bouquet for you.
We have lots of Secret Santa plants to choose from, and we supply Christmas displays for your office reception desk or Christmas parties.
We’ve been dressing the shop window with some lovely Christmas lights and wreaths. The spathphyllum (peace lilies), with their white flowers and dark green leaves look pretty, nestled amongst a variety of succulents, cactuses and hanging plants.
Part of the fun of Christmas is the planning – the menu, the colour scheme, the style and the flowers. We look forward to helping you create a perfect Christmas!

Christmas falls on Tuesday this year. You can buy your flowers on the Friday before, and choose long-lasting lilies, orchids, amaryllis, berries and pine. We can also make you a table centre display, with our without a candle. If you keep the flowers watered, and change the water in vases every other day, your flowers will last well.
We’re giving a wreath making class at ITV next week. We’ll be giving a demo while the ITV staff enjoy a glass of wine.They will then make their own wreath to take home.
If you want to make your own wreath,
You’ll need a wire frame, some moss, string for binding, blue pine and other foliage for the base. You can then decorate with pine cones, berries, bows and sparkly twigs. You can hang the wreath on your door, or use it as a table centre with a big candle in the centre.
Spray mist the wreath to moisten the moss and keep the foliage fresh.

Send some beautiful flowers on Valentine’s Day


Next Wednesday, send some beautiful flowers to someone you love! Valentine’s Day, the most romantic day of the year, symbolises the onset of spring, light and love.
We always have great fun in the shop that day – fabulous card messages and a lovely, excited feeling in the air!
We made the bouquet of 100 red roses last week for a marriage proposal. It was over dinner at The Dorchester. I expect she said yes!
We’ll even help you with your card message! It’s amazing how many people ask for our advice on what to write. I suppose we live in an age where card shops provide the sentiment for us.
Personally, I tend to buy blank cards and write my own message.
But the main thing is, the flowers do the talking. There’s nothing better than receiving a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
We deliver flowers in Holborn for the past 32 years!
We deliver in Holborn and surrounding areas, and you can send 6, a dozen or more red roses.

We also have a huge selection of flowers if you prefer a mixed bouquet – lilies, lisianthus, orchids, gerbera, freesia, tulips, limonium, cabbages, gyp, veronica, scented foliage and roses in every colour.

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.
