What a collection. One of our bride’s popped in with several large boxes filled with the most thrilling glass bottles. From places as exotic as ‘Macclesfield’ and ‘Stockport’. Bring on Easter, because I get to fill them all with beautiful seasonal flowers.
And today I had a truly inspiring afternoon. Spent with a whole host of flower growers, florists and general flower enthusiasts. Over tea and cake we talked about everything from social media, how to promote British flowers, wedding flowers, seasonality, what florists want, how to market them… to be honest we could have talked for hours. We kind of did. And swapped numbers and contact details. It was a great first event organised by the lovely Charlie of the Natural Wedding company.
So if there are any other flowery folk out there, please get in touch and come along to the next meeting. And I’ve got some new contacts, which means more British flowers for our customers in the coming months. That plus a new kettle purchase on the way home equals one happy florist.
