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





Last week…

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…IMG_2443



IMG_2440 IMG_2445  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). IMG_2446

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
