Branching Out!!

This week at The Flowerstalk we held our first kids party! Birthday girl Hannah was holding her 9th birthday party at her beautiful home on a lovely sunny afternoon for 3 of her best friends. We started with decorating and personalising a jam jar, then Sarah taught the girls how to make a small bouquet of flowers to place inside. The girls were very creative with their decorating and created perfect bouquets of flowers – see for yourself!

Happy New Year!

We would like to wish all of our customers a Happy New Year and to thank you for all your support throughout last year. We had our busiest December on record from wreath and table arrangement making workshops to weddings all whilst the shop was at its busiest – we are all now enjoying getting back to some sort of new year normality – before we are hit again by the next peak in a few weeks time!

Here’s to another great year

Christmas Advent Table Arrangement Workshop

imageThis weekend we held 2 Christmas advent table arrangement workshops at Swallowfield parish hall. I was so impressed with what the ladies made and they were all very proud and pleased with what they had achieved. They all now have a lovely personal fresh decoration which they can enjoy for the whole festive season.

 

 

Christmas is upon us!

It seems to have crept up on us more so this year than previous but as the cold, frosty weather has hit us, we are slowly getting into the Christmas spirit.

We will be decorating the shop this week with pine garlands and fairy lights – will post photos!

We are expecting our fist delivery of holly wreaths on Thursday (26th) and will have decorated door wreaths ready to go on sale at the weekend.

We also have the first of our Christmas workshops this Saturday (28th) with 2 sessions of our advent table arrangement class – a few spaces still available so please get in touch if you would like to take part.

Tulip Delight

For this weeks wedding display we have used a range of beautiful tulips. A lovely mix of bright yellow with the unusual frilly cerise pink and purple. This would be perfect for a spring bride looking for something a little unusual.
