First thing in my calendar is preparing for Valentine’s Day on Friday 14th February. I’m still in awe that its 2020! So, please get yourselves organised and place your order for my luxury bouquets for delivery or collection around Baildon and its surrounding villages and towns. I pride myself on using only the finest, high grade flowers and foliage, beautifully presented in gift bags and boxes.
Then it’ll soon be Mother’s Day, on Sunday 22nd March. I’ll be offering some gorgeous bouquets, full of pretty pastel, seasonal flowers from just £25.00.
And then? Let the Wedding Season commence!
The first wedding of the season is my own, yes I know! Time is going too fast and I can completely relate to all my brides-to-be, when I say, organising a wedding is not only stressful; it’s time-consuming and involves so many elements!
As you may or may not know, Miles and I have been together for over 4 years now, he’s been incredibly supportive with my pursuit of my dream to become a florist. We’re having an intimate wedding for our family at a superb venue towards Halifax, called Holdsworth House. It really suits our personality; quirky and has that warm, snuggly feeling, that really feels like a home from home.
I’ll be creating my own wedding flowers, crazy, but I just cannot imagine it any other way. We’ll soon be choosing bridesmaid dresses and suits and this will pave the way for the flower colours.
There are those flowers and foliage which are just my favourite and will form the backbone to my arrangements and bouquets. Eucalyptus grown by the Irish Green Guys, I love every variety, the smell, the colour, the textures! Eryngium, which to some are Thistles or Sea Holly, I love the longevity, the soft colour but contrasting shape, and Succulents especially the grey-blue ones!
I plan on creating a few sturdy Woodland themed arrangements, with mainly the above along with the frilly delicate petals of the Lisianthus, the soft grey balls Brunia, some full colour co-ordinating Roses, and of course my favourite fillers of Waxflower and Limonium. I also hope to feature seasonal flowers like white Tulips and Ranunculus too.
To save me an overwhelming amount of last minute work, I plan to create some arrangements using dried flowers and eucalyptus. This would include the buttonholes and corsages, the cake decorations and maybe a garland around our welcome to our wedding sign. Once I have my colours decided I’ll be getting underway with this task over the coming weeks.
The invites are out, and I’m in the process of getting my wedding dress fitted, luckily its just the length and a couple of tweaks!
Anyway, back to my planning and wedding preparations!
