Christmas reflections

It's beginning to look at lot like Christmas!! Just come back from the supermarket and they are running out of really funny things, that's when you know Christmas is nearly here.

It's been an amazing year and there have delightful highs and equally delightful lows but I have to say I LOVE having my own business. I love working with my Sister-in-law and love all that we have built in these delightful economic times! I'm proud of the fact that we have grown as a business with record bookings for next year. I adore the mix of Brides that we meet and the flowers that we create!I'm looking forward to next year and all that it will bring at Hartley Farm as it seems to go from strength to strength. 

A bit of festive we built!

A yummy winter bouquet

We have two days until we are finished and man are we looking forward to it, but if you do want to stick your head in before the great day then please do! Bring a smile and we may even give you a mince pie and of course some gorgeous flowers.

We wish all our customers/readers a very merry Christmas & a Happy 2012!

P.s enjoy the photos and I'm off to find a drink!! 

My favourite roses!

Smelling like Christmas....

A florist in the making...
Its been a fantastic weekend at Young Blooms HQ and our workshop now truly smells like Christmas. There is spruce needles everywhere, a fair amount of cinnamon sticks crushed under foot and a marvellous smell of orange slices every time you open the door.

Have you guessed that we had wreath making workshops this weekend??

A rather gorgeous creation!!

We both really enjoyed it all as there is always a great atmosphere at these events. Catching up with old friends and making new ones, we all drank buckets of coffee and enjoyed rather yummy mince pies and admired all the creative efforts!!

So enjoy the photos and hope you all have a fabulous week.

So proud!!

The coolest wreath of the weekend I feel...

Beautiful and stylish!!
