Come along to a venue in Lincoln* (AnShen Acupuncture on West Parade will be the main base) with your nearest and dearest for an afternoon of flowery fun.
Learn how to make a flower crown that you can then wear for the rest of your celebrations. Suitable for the younger (minimum age 14) and older members of your family who maybe don't or can't trail round the bars. Or team it up with going out for a meal or afternoon tea** if drinking isn't for you.
I can either supplier neutral colour flowers or team it up with your wedding colours and flower varieties, depending on how secret you are keeping them. (If you are a bridesmaid I will need permission from the bride to use exact flowers/colours used for wedding. Otherwise it will be a general choice). All items required for each person to make a flower crown will be provided along with refreshments.
Each workshop will run up for up to 3 hours, leaving plenty of time for fun and laughter with no pressure on getting crowns made.
6 guests (minimum) £240 (£40 each)
8 guests £300 (£37.50 each)
11 guests £350 (£35 each and bride goes FREE)
£40 booking fee required to hold the date per workshop and final payment is 3 weeks before.

A post that you won't want to read!
We may not want to think about it but at some point in our lives we will have the need for funeral tributes. We will all have to say goodbye to a loved one.
From previous posts I know this will not get seen by many, but it is a large part of my business. For those that have asked us to provide these displays it is a fitting tribute to their lost loved one and hopefully eased the day just a touch.
They are after all still pretty flower displays, just for a sad occasion.
This is just a small selection of what can be created
Single ended autumnal spray
Pretty pinks, purple and white double ended spray
Autumnal inspired wreath
Gold posy pad
GRANDPA with white ribbon and autumn colour sprays
Based on football colours
We can create any name, family title, or words to suit. They are priced per letter (POA) and can be any colour ribbon (or you can have foliage) and spray with the letters usually in white but can also be yellow and pink.
Lovely spring spray in pink white and blue
Red winter wreath
We create so much more and a guide price list can be sent if required.
We can cater for bespoke designs, let us know your ideas.
Trains, planes and automobiles, to birds and bees, to golf and football, to stars and angels and more.
Say goodbye with a personalised tribute always treated with love and respect.
Family consultations in the comfort of your own home, no rush, time to reflect and think of happy times.
If you are in need of tributes call or email to book an appointment to discuss your ideas.
Condolences to all those whom ordered the above flowers for their lost loved one.

This is the fabulous reception set up of A and O at The Mount Pleasant Hotel at Bawtry.
The displays alternated between high, candelabras, and low, pumpkin vases.
Our candelabras are 100cm tall and theses were displayed with long taper candles.
The display was a flower ball between the arms allowing for 5 candles and the gorgeous flowers used were roses and carnations in both pale pink and champagne with mixed foliage.
They were sat on large round mirrors.
The low displays were a couple of silver pumpkin vases with pink roses and carnations with champagne roses and wax flower.
These make really cute table centrepieces for your guests.
The top table had a long and low design
filled with scrumptious flowers as the bride's bouquet (here) such as roses, wax flower, spray roses and eustoma.
Unfortunately we arrived at the same time as the lovely ladies from the chair cover company and didn't get to see the room completely dressed.
Thank you hand ties were also provided for presentation during the speeches.
If anyone has any doubts about the way we transport flowers to the venues I took these shots on loading the van up for this wedding.
I may get odd looks from having such a large van BUT on occasions such as this wedding it is so easy to load, transport and unload with flowers in order of need.
Church flowers at the front, bridal designs next with buttonholes and reception flowers at the rear and plenty of room left for a larger set up.
On this occasion I had a helper and after the whole set up was complete we stopped off for a coffee and gingerbread man, a small treat after a busy morning.
If you are getting married at The Mount Pleasant Hotel or love any of the designs above do get in touch to see how we can transform your venue with flowers.
All the candelabras and vases were hired from us and part of our care and service is to collect all of these items the next day, working with the hotel, so you don't have to worry. All sorted, generally, before breakfast.
I look forward to hearing from you

This is the lovely St Joseph's Church and Retford which was the setting for A and O's wedding a few weeks ago.
Continuing with the colours of pink and champagne (see bridal party flowers here) we created displays for the Altar and pews.
The Altar display was a front facing traditional style display of pink and champagne roses, cream stocks, carnations and wax flower.
We also created a traditional style church pedestal of a similar mix of flowers.
The pew ends were made up of a pink and champagne rose with pink spray roses and foliage. These were tied together with a small organza bow.
The pew displays were alternated with flowers and bows
A rare action shot of me as I had a helper on the day!
All these flowers were taken out of church and taken to the reception to be reused and displayed to the full.
If you are having a church ceremony please get in touch to see how we can style flowers to suit your theme/colours.
We work closely with the church and will sort all the delivery/set up direct with them so you don't have to.

Today we take a look at this gorgeous wedding of the lovely A and O from a few weeks ago in April.
The colour scheme was pink and champagne with roses, peony, wax flower and carnations.
We used a combination of roses, bombastic spray, garden and standard and along with the peony and wax flower the scent was divine.
The 4 bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the brides with more pink to stand out from their champagne dresses.
The stems were tied with blush organza.
The groomsmen wore a classic style buttonhole of a champagne rose with asparagus fern.
(This was the page boys mounted on to a safety pin)
The buttonholes and corsages on their presentation boards all ready for delivery.
The ladies wore a traditional style corsage in a mix of flowers from the bridal bouquet
All boxed up and ready for presentation to the bride.
One of the garden rose blooms that is filled with petals and packs a punch with scent.
Pink weddings are always a popular choice and peonies in particular are very popular. (Their season is from April to July)
If you love this style and would like to talk flowers then please get in touch in the first instance with your wedding date to check availability.

I look forward to hearing from you soon
