I know i havnt done my blog in a while so please excuse how long this one will be.
This started off with a bang with us having the opportunity to do a fresh wedding along with wedding venue flowers for a lovely couple who got married in Birmingham. I was given 5 weeks notice and complete free reign on the designs- a florists dream 🙂
We delievered thier flowers to them at Birmingham registry office and placed all buttonholes on every guest there, we then went on to decorate not one but 2 venues… Now these venues were something really special and ones i cannot ever see me decorating again, hence my excitement..
Venue one was Bar Epinay In the Mailbox Birmingham, our job was to place flowers onto the tables at the back of Bar Epinay in the wine room. The flowers were arranged in groups of 4 in stunning silver mercury vases ( my choice of container to go with the main venue)
Our Next Venue was THE ONE.. AND ONLY… MARCO PIERRE WHITE’S PRIVATE DINING ROOM at the Mailbox eeeekkkkkk….yes i did scream LOL. Again FREE reign was given for this.
We had to make 2 visits for this weddding,as the bar epinay flowers were to be put with the other venue flowers afterwards.
Well this is what Marco Pierres White’s Private Dining room flowers looked like Day and Night View.
When i saw the evening picture after i was emailed, i must admit it took my breath away… Needles to say the happy couple were very very pleased which makes me a very happy florist.
This month consisted of Valentines day and another wedding the day before valentines Day, The bride wanted a mix of fresh and silk flowers, the bride had an all red rose bridal shower ( pic to come). This wedding at Somerford Hall. The bride was delighted with her flowers too. Valentines day was also extremely busy.
In amongst all this we have been busy doing funeral flowers, bouquets and silk wedding flowers, most of them being shipped overseas to America. We had phonecalls from Austrailiaand France for bouquet orders which makes life very interestin.
Well what another month it’s been, We have had Mother’s Day and then we WON AN AWARD – whoop whopp- go us 🙂 We we also asked a local Blogger Madwblog if she could interview us about our award and what a florists job is like and what we do. Feeling chuffed as i have never been interviewed before. Please feel free to READ OUR INTERVIEW
