Well, last week was a busy one and of course in the midst of the madness I decided to start making a real effort to do the blog even if only for my own entertainment! So, here we have last week in pictures and my ramblings…
Monday – A local business wanted some arrangements for a event they had at their premises. Modern, whites and greens, fresh was the brief, we used Anthuriums, Gladioli to give height and white Roses to give a classic look, plus a few brassica (that’s ornamental cabbages to you). Three arrangements later…
Wednesday saw us going a bit wedding mad, brides and enquiries coming in left right and occasionally centre, 2015 is booking up already, which is FAB!! We’ve also been doing lots of ordering for, shall we say, ‘seasonal’ stock which is very exciting, like shopping but on a big scale, lots of glittery gorgeousness and some really lovely scented candles will be in stock soon.
Plant deliveries and re-arranging the shelves in the shop took up a couple of days, dusting, changing round, etc… We’ve gone for a more natural look as well as displaying some of our glassware (yes, we do sell the vases, we just like to make them look nice whilst they are in the shop).
Alocasia Polly, one of my FAVORITE plants, so interesting looking, thinking he may be a contender for the Halloween window!! 🙂
And of course bouquets, the daily delight of making up bouquets for the lovely customers who come in, phone up or occasionally shout through the door 🙂
Until next week… x
