Design your own Christmas centre piece!

November 15, 2016

What could be nicer than a beautiful Christmas table centre piece or hall decoration. It does' have to be complicated, sometimes less is more, very chic and sophisticated.

If you want to keep it really simple, take individual stems from one of our Christmas bouquets and put them into 5 or 6 tall glasses and arrange them along the length of your table, surrounded by glittery baubles or confetti.

For a fairly simply display, pick one of our bouquets that suits your colour scheme and decorations best, if you want a silver theme, choose Twilight or a red one either Sparkle or Red Spice.  All you need to do is to put the ready made bouquet into a glass vase filled with water and strings of silver beads or baubles.  After that you just put some festive candles around the vase or little tea lights in sparkling holders.  Make sure you have at least four to five around it, to balance it out.

If you want to be a little bit more adventurous, buy a plain wreath. Order one of our Designer range bouquets like Firelight or Rose and Lily Shimmer, which are full of fabulous festive flowers and sparkling foliage. Cut the stems of the flowers so that they are long enough to push into the wreath, about four or five inches long, depending on the size of the wreath you have bought.  Arrange them in stems of three, so that they cover the whole of the green area along the top and sides of the wreath. When you have finished it, put a large candle into the centre of it, either in a glass vase or on its own, but make sure it is at least four inches proud of the top. 

For the really easiest just put one of our beautiful Christmasy trugs, anywhere that people will see it, to share it's Christmas magic!

Voila, you have your table or hall centre piece sorted out!  

 

Flowers bring you happiness!

November 15, 2016

The State University of New Jersey, has run a research project which proves that nature provides us with a simple way to improve emotional health - flowers. The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed.  This has to be good.  We all love beautiful things in our houses, especially ones that are going to make us feel better.

"What's most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way," said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher on the study.

Flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. We all know that  happy smile people give us when we hand them a bouquet of flowers. The study participants expressed "true" or "excited" smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal, occurring in all age groups.

Now it 's official - make someone happy today!

Caring for your flowers

November 09, 2015

When you receive flowers from us, please remember to:

  1. Place the flowers in a vase with fresh, lukewarm water and use the flower food provided. DO NOT use metal containers!
  2. Cut the flower stems at an angle and remove any leaves that will fall below the water level. This will ensure that the leaves do not contaminate the water.
  3. Change the water ever few days and keep topping it up inbetween.
  4. Keep away from sources of heat, direct sunlight and draughts.
  5. Your flowers may appear to be droopy after transit, but after a few hours they will rehydrate and fully recover - they just need a good drink!

Special Instructions for:

Carnations
Carnations are normally sent out whilst very young and still in bud, ready to open at home for maximum longevity. Never cut on the joints of the stems.

Freesia
To encourage extra flowering, pinch off dead or dying flower blooms, just as you would do in your garden. Freesias need lots of water, so keep topping up the vase.

Lilies
Lilies are usually sent out in bud, ready to open at home for maximum longevity.

Lilies require tall vases to support the weight of the stems. Lily pollen can stain clothing, furniture or worktops - you can remove the stamens to avoid this if you like. However, if pollen does fall onto a surface it is best removed decliately with sellotape. Lily pollen can be dangerous to cats and other household pets.

Rose Care:
To stop the roses from drooping, after cutting the stems stand them in one inch of boiling water for 30 seconds before placing them in a vase as fresh lukewarm water.

A characteristic on some roses is a dark tinge on the outer protective petals - this occurs naturally during transit and is not a flaw. Simply remove these petals from the roses to enjoy their full beauty!

Oriental Dendrobium Orchids
These tropical flowers will stay at their best when you follow the instructions below:

If your Orchids are wilted on arrival, simply submerge the whole Orchid sprays for a maximum of 10-15 mins in cool tap water. Be sure to untangle the stems with care, trim up to 5cm off the stems at an angle and place the flowers in a clean vase of water with the flower food provided. Dying flowers can be continually removed to enocourage more to bloom.

Finally, enjoy your beautiful flowers!
