I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
Perhaps over the Christmas period engagements might have taken place. Congratulations.
Now comes the preparation for a wedding maybe this year possibly next. If you need to discuss
flowers, please do not hesitate to contact me. Budgets for flowers can be put on the back burner, but it
is always good to have an idea on costs to add to the mix.
Last year I was trying to run a more sustainable business. No floral foam and moving on to use wool blocks instead. It has been a learning curve but getting there I have to say. As a suggestion to anyone organising an event and wanting to use many flowers - lovely - it might be worth thinking about re-purposing some arrangements. Those used in the church being transported to the reception and those used at the reception being gifted to someone special at the ended of the day. Or use plants as part of the design. I love using these., for tablescaping they are invaluable. As are bud vases. Choose one variety of vase or joy of joys different varieties. Look fabulous.
I have had the honour of providing bespoke flower tributes for funerals last year. This made them particularly special for the families. Speaking with the funeral directors to make sure we get everything right is a must.
Bouquets for every occasion have flown out of the workshop. Some favourites have been with some rather spectacular French tulips, which are a particular favourite of mine. Then dahlias, hydrangea of the deep red variety, and many many more.
I am looking forward to another year of being surrounded by gorgeous flowers and foliage. Unfortunately I do not have a shop in Lavenham, but you are always welcome to visit - phone ahead first - to discuss your flowery needs.
