I can't believe my last post was back in January this year, thats unreal!

I used to be so good and do monthly blogs but if you have been following Rock + Wild online on our socials you'll know we have had a lot going on this year.

From my last blog post to this shiny new one I'm currently writing I've managed to grow a tiny human being alongside an epic wedding season, so I think you know where this is heading......my impending maternity leave!!!

Believe it or not my last day is tomorrow but don't fear I'll be back to my flowery world in nine months time but for now I sit here full of excitement and wonder of who our tiny little baba will be!


 

I'm going to do it, I'm going to reflect already...

I did a lovely little wedding last week and it was a little emotional knowing it was our last one of the year but this wedding season was truly an epic one and I'm already looking forward to the weddings booked for next year!

I got to play and get creative with some amazing big designs, which I must admit is my most favourite floristry to create, from breathtaking arches, to full on milk churns overflowing with flower to abundant and lush flower columns to frame the most gorgeous of aisles...I've blinking loved it!

Did any of you get a chance to pop into the Trowbridge museum over the summer months, if so you wouldn't of missed our epic archway design. This flower installation has to be the biggest and most creative display I have EVER made. The staff at the museum were just epic and made the whole experience from creating to making the most fun, free flowing, creative awesomeness ever! Certainly an experience I will treasure this year and one installation that will always shine bright in Rock + Wilds portfolio.


 

Autumns on the way...

I was born on the autumn equinox and I'm pretty sure that is why I have such a love for this season. So I am sad to miss out on the flowers and seasonal festivities that come with fall in floristry but lets hope Rock + Wilds newest member will have a matching love for autumn aswell...

How can you not, crisp air, cosy nights, Halloween scares and the most heartwarming colours to match. So a big sorry comes from me as it will also mean no flower pumpkins and more importantly no Christmas workshops this year, which is such a shame as they were a massive joy to do last year but I will have plenty of time to think up some more workshop ideas on my return in the new year.

 

So until next year...

As we switch off the web shop, turn on the voicemail and automate our emails, just remember we will be back! It's only a little family hibernation and I will see you next June with tired eyes but a massive flower fire in my heart!


Thank you so much for all your kind words of support and love, means the world to me as the next adventure begins, wish us luck!


See you next year and thank you!

Love Kerry and the Rock + Wild family

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR y'all, a little late to the game I know, sorry!

Can't believe we are approaching the end of January already and I have to admit this month has flown by this year, which is not often the case.

We have been busy mind and I had the absolute pleasure of creating the most stunning artificial flower arch installation for the wonderful Bridal Lounge here in Trowbridge. If you are a local Trowbridgian go and take a peek, you'll find it slightly tucked away at The Shires Asda entrance. It's honestly the most gorgeous thing I have created this year, granted its only January but its going to take some doing to top that!

If you are a Bride to be still hunting for your dream wedding dress I can strongly recommend popping into The Bridal Lounge they are just the sweetest, friendliest team you'll find. Also there is a little bonus too, you may find some special offers from local folks like me in the wedding business if your lucky to purchase one of there stunning dresses....oooohhhh sounds exciting huh!

I have just managed to sit down next to a dog that won't stop circulating like a hunting shark to avoid all the toy cars on the sofa...I mean Buddy, just SIT DOWN!

I don't really know why I needed to share that opener with you but hey, it sets the mood.

It's currently 4pm on a grey and murky Wednesday and I can't help but feel a little sad that the Halloween fun is all over..........

but wait for it......



Christmas is coming!!!

 

Tis the season to be jolly...

I'm trying to channel my inner Elf think she's called Cookie Pickle-Pants or at least thats what some cracker game told me.

Anyways we are talking wreath workshops, tied foliage garlands, table centres, festive jam jars, make your own DIY wreath kit and Christmas foliages galore!

You think of something and I'm darn sure I'll do my best to make it, although trying to find giant and I mean giant baubles is proving a challenge, so at this point contemplating painting Rex's footballs if they keep hanging around trying to trip me up!


It's my first year being in my glorious studio this Christmas and I am so excited to get it looking all festive and awesome. That's were I think tied garlands and sparkling lights may need to take over.

I'm not a savvy computer whizz kid unfortunately but something did pop into my head the other day, to be able to offer an option on our web shop to add twinkling battery operated lights to a design of your choice. So give me a week or so and I'll see how techno I can go!

I am a lover of lights at Christmas, its the greatest mood influencer so if I can give some sparkle to our festive designs, I'm darn well going to do it!

But don't worry if you are more of a natural kinda soul there will be plenty of wild and woody designs.


There is a design on the web shop called "Mixed Christmas Foliages" and this one is perfect if you want to get crafty.

Last year I simply cut all the foliage down to about hand size and created a table runner by just placing the short stems throughout each other along a run of candlesticks and add a bundle of pinecones and cinnamon, boom!

You have yourself a stunning Christmas table that you made.


Same method works brilliantly on fireplaces, mantles, picture shelves, piano toppers and more, the list really is endless.


For a more free hanging, sturdy design you would be looking at more of a tied garland which look stunning over a door archway, picture corners, and as a swag design on a fireplace, just imagine the stockings mixed in there too.

Oh and lets not forget to add our sparkling lights to the mix.


For me Christmas is all about the smells, textures and lights such a perfect trio!

 

Christmas Workshops

If you were awesome enough to grab a space on our wreath making workshop....eekkk.... your in for a treat. To all those who missed out this time, I'm so sorry spaces just got snapped up so quickly, which was a very pleasant surprise to me but a note for next year, more dates needed!

But don't forget we do our DIY Wreath Making Kits for £35.00 which comes with all the materials you need to make your own wreath at home with the guidance of a video by yours truly, trust me I did get some good feedback last year, promise!!! Also a pretty good gift idea for the impossible person.......just a thought we all know one.

It is my first time teaching in the studio so keeping numbers to six people a class seems a safe option for this occasion but next year I may well think we could comfortably squeeze in more peeps, we'll see.

Going shopping for all the supplies in the next couple of weeks (I know, tough task hey!) so hoping to conjure an amazing collection of Christmas goodies for us all to play with, along with all the fresh foliages to make your Christmas wreaths last in to the new year!

From Spruce to Holly, to Eucalyptus to Pinecones. Lets get the creative juices flowing and the bubbles popping!

 

The Christmas Collection is live!


The Christmas Collection is now live on our web shop for you to get your pre orders in and orders will be ready to go out for delivery any date on and from the Tuesday 23rd November to Thursday 23rd December, being our last day open for the year!


Can't wait to see you all for flowery fun and Christmas shenanigans!




Take care everyone and keep warm and safe and if I don't see you before, Merry Christmas!!!....did I really just say that.


Love Kerry xx
