What is the story behind your company?
I wanted to buy a friend a custom charm bracelet for her 21 birthday in 2009. Every bracelet I found didn’t haven’t charms that related to our friendship. Then I found one that was perfect except it was £250! I decided to go to Hobbycraft and buy charms and the necessary findings from there and make my own.
I showed it to her mum who showed it to some friends and then I gave it to my friend for her birthday.
When i recieved a telephone call asking me if i was up to this job, I ddn't hesitate to say 'of course'. IT was only when we started going through the order that i started doubting my self..
19 Large candleabras
4 Very large Urns
16 Topiary trees
Large bar arrangement
And that was just for starters, we hadn't got to the Bridal flowers or the church yet!!
I remember sleepless nights in the begnning, a mixture of excitement and anxiety. Its amazing really, i am a fully qualified Project manager and Florist, but even with (or because of) the experience i have behind me i knew that this was a huge challenge.
Having spent the week in Cornwall last week I've have been inspired by the whole vintage rose and flower theme. Everywhere I went there were flowers and patchwork.
If the weather ever picks up this summer I will be decorating my garden with bunting and vintage bottles filled with flowers from my garden and spending glorious afternoons with friends and family. Although if i find myself making Lemonade someone will need to give me a sharp talking to (Life's too short to make lemonade!
Wedding flowers on a budget
Looking for Flowers on a budget can be tricky, the cheapest florist is not always going to be the most appropriate for your big day. So how do you find Flowers on a budget without resorting to DIY.
1. Speak to the Professionals - Be honest with your florist and if you have a budget tell them, most Florists will tailor your needs to your budget - If they won't then perhaps they are not a wise choice.
2. Hand tied bouquets will be cheaper than traditional shower bouquets or any wired wedding bouquet - There is a lot less work needed to create a hand tied bouquet.
Wow what a weekend, started with a request from the lovely Toni @Food for thought
, asking if i could supply two displays for her wedding fayre stands. I was more than happy to oblige, especially considering that we were attending the same wedding fayre on Sunday and Food for thought is such a fabulous company.What i wasn't expecting were the fabulous photos of her stand.
This inspired me to go on and create a number of things this weekend, firstly my products for my Stand atFirefly weddings
