Just because.....

We have had a brilliant day today...meeting lots of brides!! Its been wedding crazy. Its so gorgeous that no one wedding is the same.Every bride has ideas that will make her day completely unique and her own. I love that we can play a creative part in making that happen. Wedding bookings have been coming in at great speed, in times when things seem a bit bleak its fab to know that we are doing something right!

Anyway onto more lovely topics and pictures....

While digesting the delights of CL, I came accross two rather yummy blogs....Check twitter out this week as I will be putting my wish list on there!!

Treats are a girls best friend

A rather delicious Young Blooms table centre
Well, as we have already done the first week back to work I wonder how its been for you??
I think we have both found that treats have been the way to get through for us!! This involved having nice massages, buying a copy of this months Country Living, & having nice coffee at the Fat Fowl in Bradford and as a reward for clearing the house and workshop of Christmas leftovers, I filled it with our beautiful fresh flowers.
It's also been a week for planning & looking at the year to come. We are both excited because following the success of our Christmas wreath workshops, we are planning more workshops later in the year -  dates and details are being firmed up so we will let you know once they are confirmed.

Valentines Day & Mother's Day surprises are both in the bag as well so look out for the delicious designs that will be filling our workshop!!

Weekly arrival from the Isles of Scilly

We have begun getting our weekly delivery of scented Narcissus from the Isles of Scilly - they are certainly good for the soul when its tipping down with rain, so do come and pick some up at Hartley Farmshop as they are on special offer for a limited time.

Wherever you are, make sure to treat yourself this week!!

New Year Resolutions

Well, I am sat here making plans.... New Year and all that! Lucky old us had a weeks holiday after the madness of Christmas. A chance for lazy mornings in bed, long lunches discussing plans for the future, and quite frankly a lot of shopping!

So we started the New Year with a good spring clean of the workshop and are now excited and inspired - looking forward to the year to come......

On that note I found these photos that never made it into a blog so enjoy.........

 We received some lovely thank you notes from brides last year which I thought I would include. We are always touched to receive these and it helps us know that we are doing a great job!!

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the flowers you did for my wedding. Everything was perfect!! The Bouquets were just as I wanted them - simple, and the candelabras looked amazing with the roses and ivy. Also, thanks for being so flexible with the church flowers so late in the order. You have both been a pleasure to work with and so professional and friendly in all meetings".     Suzanna St John (Nov 2010)"

A belated but huge for helping to make our wedding day such a successful and memorable day - the flowers we so beautiful, they really were just what I was after!"
