    Red Roses Everywhere

    Valentine’s Day was busier than ever this year, and ended when we took a phone call at 4pm for 24 Red Roses, large Teddy and a bottle of Proseco from Canada to a local lady. Luckily we just had 24 red roses left, so we ended the day pretty much sold out, all bar a few mixed flowers! A few days later, just as my fingers had recovered from the weekends thorns, I took a call from a local care home asking if I could supply flowers for one of their residents who had passed away the day before. They asked if I could supply a 6″ based cross in…

    Valentines Day is coming at Floral Exuberance

    With all the Christmas decorations away, it’s now time to turn my attention to another of my favourite times of the year despite the lack of sleep that it usually brings – Valentines Day. I am working on designs and ideas for this year, and hope to have a dedicated section of the site up by the weekend. The biggest seller every February 14th is without doubt the Red Rose, be it a single cello wrapped stem, or twelve gift-wrapped in a vase, but each year I like to throw something different into the mix. If anyone has any ideas, or an individual item that means something special to them,…

    From Bridal Bouquets to Christmas Wreaths and Trees

    Yet another year seems to have flown by, and 2014 has been another busy one for Wedding Flowers in particular with Brides getting more varied, and dare I say adventurous, with their ideas for what they want for their Bridal Bouquets. I have a few fresh ideas for 2015 already booked, but I can’t reveal what they are until after the big day – suffice to say, there will be a few eyebrows raised from the traditionalists, but it is refreshing to be able to give inspiration to brides to set their day aside from the norm. As the year draws to a close though, everyone’s mind turns to Christmas,…

    Colour Matched Bridal Bouquets and Flowers

    Towards the beginning of this year, I had an enquiry from a bride who knew EXACTLY what she wanted – right down to the exact shade of flower she wanted. Normally, it makes things easy for me when the customer can tell me every detail of what they need, but on this occasion it caused more than a few sleepless nights. After visiting every local wholesaler, and scouring the net for an eternity I was at the point of giving up. We had agreed an exact bouquet, and the exact rose to use, but it wasn’t available in the colour required – unless we ordered 10,000+ in which case they…
