2018??!!

2018? It surely can’t be?! Where does this time go? We celebrated five years of being open in September and already we’re another four months gone!!

Yet again, we had a very busy wedding season (although season suggests a set period of time and these days it just never seems to end…not that we’re complaining)! Our last weddings were on the 16th December, one at our neighbourhood venue, Crow Hill, and one in Salford at the Worsley Court House and our first wedding of 2018 came on the 12th January….so season, schmeason…

 

Thanks to Elizabeth Baker Wedding Photography for the pictures of Amy and Marks wedding in January, below.

 

So, as always this year, we’ve got Valentines coming up, thanks to Pete for doing this fabulous window display, I think this year needs to be me against Pete window battle, the battle of the windows…and whoever wins…gets Christmas off…HA! Vote for your favourite on Facebook!

 

Mother’s day is next, the opportunity to spoil that lady in your life who looks after you, whether it be Mum, Grandma, Aunty, Sister, your next door neighbours daughter, Fairy Godmother (yes, that’s a thing)! I believe these people should ALWAYS be lavished with flowers and gifts BUT sometimes we forget, Mother’s day is the day not to!

Keep a look out on the blog and our Instagram page for more fabulous Mother’s day ideas, flower arranging classes, monthly flower deliveries, gloriously scented candles, plants galore or sophisticated silk flower arrangements…for those people whose houses are just TOO HOT for fresh…doesn’t happen often in Marsden!

And then we’ll be back into weddings, this year we’ve got some real floral feasts for you to peruse over, hanging pomanders of flowers, garlands of greenery, spring fandango (I like that word, expect to see more of that), and a wedding abroad…Portugal, here we come!!

Until next time…which I PROMISE will be before Mother’s day…see diary entry…

Keep updated on our various social media thingies, Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. We’ll also be showcasing some our wedding expertise at Holmfirth Vineyard wedding fair on the Sunday 4th March and of course at the Crow Hill Wedding fair on Sunday 18th March. xx

Christmas time…mistletoe and wine…

It’s here, the festive frenzy that is Christmas!!! The shop has been dressed for a couple of weeks now but I thought I’d give you an opportunity to look around even if you don’t manage to physically get into the shop, how lucky are you?! Come on in…wp_20161203_11_40_03_pro

 

First up, our Christmas windows…no, we didn’t win the window competition this year, Congratulations to Cubecure by the way, (she says, through gritted teeth) with their fabulous wooden wonderland. But, we’re still very happy with ours, despite the torment it causes me every year!! 🙂

We’ve got some beautiful Christmas gifts stacked around the shop at the moment and that loveliness is only going to get better as we get closer to the big day. Christmas visiting starts as soon as December hits so we’ve got lots of cute pick up gifts ready in the shop, priced from £5.00 they’re the perfect little something!

Next up, we have wreaths for your door, a selection of Spruce or Holly ones…or even, FULL ON GOLD GLITTER ONES!!!

We’ve got some lovely little bulb planters in the shop, Hyacinths/Crocus, all waiting to get into the warmth and bloom for you.

We have city scape candle holders that create a lovely glow sat on your fireplace or window sill and priced at only £4.50/£11.95 they are a bargain!

Hampers and bags to pop all those lovely goodies in, a few different sizes, big and bulky, small and petite and elegantly slim line (I’m not sure how a bottle bag can be elegantly slim line but it sounds good, sooo…) Priced from £2.50 why not fill them up with other goodies from our village, toys from The Magic Box, Cheese, Biscuits and WINE from Goodness me, some fabulous art from Enjoy Art and other little trinkets from Cubecure!

 

Flower deliveries will commence on the 22nd and we’ll be delivering right through until Christmas Eve! A few examples are below but all our bouquets are bespoke, made individually and designed on the day, feel free to request specific things, Lilies, Amaryllis, Berries, Gerberas, Roses…the list goes on and on (it really does).

 

Table Centrepieces can be ordered now and then collected nearer the time – candles, no candles, flowers, no flowers…I fear I’m giving you too much choice now!

img_2529And with that, I’ll say goodbye, hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and I’ll soon you in January, hopefully as fresh as a daisy (see what I did there)…if I don’t indulge in too much mistletoe and wine! 🙂
