Happy New Year, and Happy New Decade!
Wow 2019 was the most craziest, exciting, overwhelming and funnest year yet! Our little flower stall moved to its new home at no.9 Church Street, we held 18 workshops in the 3 and a half months in the shop, and survived the Christmas period. So incredibly happy and grateful for all the support we received - thank you for letting us create the most special days, make bouquets galore for all sorts of occasions, decorating over 100 wreaths and centrepieces and for every single visit to our shop - we are so happy to have our new home and be part of the lovely Ampthill High Street.
Going into 2020, we have lots of plans and ideas. We have just launched our Personal Calendar Service (see previous post for details) and are in planning for this years workshops, so keep an eye out for these launching on our social media and workshop page. We also are going to be building our online shop. We offer online shopping for our bouquets through Floom, an online marketplace for independent florists; however due to the business opening the shop at the end of last year, we had to pause on this service. This year we will have a brand new range of floral designs, from bouquets, to jars, to wreaths. These will all be available to purchase online for deliver in the local area. These will also change throughout the seasons, so make sure to keep updated on our ranges throughout the year.
We are back open again now after our Christmas break, with a full table of flowers and lots of new lovely plants, so make sure to pop by!
Introducing our Personal Calender Service - never forget to send flowers again!
Very Simply, you give us the dates for Birthdays, Anniversaries and Special occasions (Valentines, Mother’s Day) and we will send you a reminder one week before the date, either by message or email. You can then order your flowers to be delivered (depending on the address) or collect from the shop very easily by replying to our message - and get all the brownie points!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year….
And with only 12 days to go until the big day, we have created this gift guide to assist with the stress of Christmas shopping!
First up; our mini Christmas trees! The perfect present for a teacher, neighbour or loved one - hare tees to get them in the festive mood - and at only £3 (or £4.50) with added baubles, these hessian wrapped potted trees are fab, especially as they can be planted and reused for every year to come!
Our next gift is the cutest pot hangers ever! Choose from Santa, Elf or Angel to make any pot feel festive. These are £8.50 each.
We also have a huge range of different pots for these lovely hangers to decorate. Starting at £2.50, we have something for everyone (and every plant!). From soft greys to deep blue and gold, to patterned terracotta, to vintage hand made - something to suit every home.
To fill these pots, we have a huge range of plants, from Ficus to succulent, to Fern - perfect for that green fingered friend.
A little something for the tree, our dried flower baubles are delicate, festive and will last for years(as long as they are kept safety) and can be used as a decoration all year round (remember a bauble is not just for Christmas).
Talking of baubles, our succulent baubles are another love! Mini hanging terrariums that require little maintenance - perfect for the newly green fingered or succulent lover.
Our light up wooden stars are another lovely gift. Their natural look and warm glow would make the perfect addition to any side board, keeping us feeling cozy in the freezing temperatures.
Glass framed print or pressed flowers are another lovely present. We have a range of these, designed by Olivia Lucy Craft (an artist based in Norwich). There are two sized available 5x7 (£12.50) or 8x10 (£18.00), with lots of different colour tones and designs.
Vouchers and Flower Subscriptions are the perfect present for any flower lover, meaning they can enjoy flowers into the new year. vouchers can be redeemed on flowers, any pots or accessories and also workshops. These are available at £10, £20, and £50. Our flowers subscriptions are for either 3 months, 6 or 12 months, and consists of a £30 seasonal bouquet delivered each month.
Finally, FLOWERS! Nothing beats a festive bouquet, bunch, centrepiece, little jar or vase of flowers. A gift of decoration and joy- our shop is bursting with festive blooms so please pop in to create your own Christmas design (please be aware it is pre order only for the 24th, and other busy days are on a first come first serve basis).
