The last summer holiday has been enjoyed and my birthday has been and gone, must mean one thing.....its Autumn!

Autumn and Spring have always been my favourite seasons, watching the changes in nature really is the Bee's knee's. You will certainly see a change in the flower this Autumn season, all those beautiful bronzes, burnt oranges, deep pinks and reds have now taken over and we say goodbye to the summer pastel pinks and lilacs.



These deep vibrant tones are perfect for Autumn events, Halloween, bringing images of Autumnal wreaths and harvest vibes and Pumpkins!!!!

Can't get enough of pumpkins and gourdes in October and the uglier the better I say.

There are so many great local locations to go and pick your own pumpkins and I certainly know me and mini man will definitely be doing are fair share of squelching through muddy fields to find our perfect pumpkin. I wonder if I'll find one big enough to put him in hehe.

Don't forget I know the perfect way to showcase those hand picked pumpkin

Unfortunately no big Halloween parties will be happening this year but how about a small dinner party with your floral pumpkin taking centre stage, of course no more than six people we don't want to get in trouble.

We will also be offering our weekly special on Halloween week so keep your eyes peeled for this. No doubt it will be filled with Autumnal lovelies, including my favourite Chinese lanterns.


Autumn Flower...

Autumn flower sees a selection of all the great lasters! They all blend so well together, you can even introduce dried flower to the mix and give it the real harvest vibe.



Autumnal Hydrangeas







Bespoke Designs...

Ever think you need a little floral (I don't know why but this word still makes me shudder...) decoration in the house, don't forget you can always drop me a message whether its small or large. Fancy an abundant Autumnal wreath on your door, a finishing touch on the mantle piece just give us a shout, I do love a challenge thats for sure!

Right October really is a bustling month and no time to hang around so this month I'll leave it short and sweet or spooky!

See you next in November and well you certainly know what I'll be talking about then, clue it begins with C!

Thanks again my lovelies!

Whats been happening...

August has been a month full of summer lushness, flower quality this month has been out of this world! We have had some mind blowing colours in Dahlias, Delphiniums as big as giraffes and Hydrangeas have been on point!

The summer months are full of the best British flowers and we have been lucky enough to find some great new local suppliers which will make next years delights more exciting.

As Autumn approaches you will certainly see a change in the types of flower coming your way and the most gorgeous colour palettes. I have to admit Autumn is my favourite season, seeing the changes in the trees and all the awesome events up ahead! I'm a sucker for Halloween so no doubt you'll see some fun, strange designs coming up!


How to make the best of your flower...

This month I thought it would be a good idea to tell you the best way to look after your flowers! If your lucky enough to be spoilt with the gift of flowers this is how it goes....

Hand Tied

If your bunch of flowers comes wrapped in paper and the stems are out of water the first thing to do is unwrap your flowers removing all paper and bow, remembering to recycle these!

The bunch will be hand arranged already so no need to untie the bouquet. You will then need to cut at least two centimetres of the bottom of the stems, trying to cut at an angle to ensure the greatest area for the flower to guzzle up the water. Your bouquet will come with flower food attached so make sure to mix this in with the fresh water according to the instructions on the packet. Fill your vase with the premixed water and another tip is to use a vase with a big bottom! Often you see vases that are skinny and tall which can make it difficult for the stems to spread out and create that lovely full look.

Pop your freshly cut bouquet into the vase and boom, beautiful happy flowers!

For maximum lifespan for your flowers change the water every few days, especially as flower food can go a bit cloudy if left too long. Also recut the stems as they can seal over and remove any dead flowers as they can effect the remaining flowers.

Don't be afraid at this point to cut the tie point on your bouquet and separate your flowers out, as you can often make a few vase arrangements out of one bunch!

Aqua Bouquet

If you receive a bunch of flowers sat in a box you don't have to rush as they are sat in there own water bubble. Its a good idea to top up the water in the bubble as we don't fill it to the top as when they travel it could spill, you can do this by simply pouring water slowly down low into the centre of the bouquet with a watering can and make sure you don't overfill!

After a couple of days maximum its best to then remove the flower from its water bubble by taking the bouquet out the box, remember flower food is often popped into the box so save this for later. Remove the outer paper which can be recycled and head to your sink and while holding the bouquet over the sink with one hand, snip the tie point with the other and water will pour out. The cellophane we use is compostable the best way is to cut it into small pieces and pop it in your compost bin.

Then continue with the steps of above with the hand tied!


Right think thats enough talking for this month, hope you've found this useful and you can now show off with your new found knowledge of flower care, you never know when this might come in handy!

Take care my lovelies!!!

Whats been happening...

July has certainly been a busy month!

Although times have not got back to complete normality yet (or perhaps it is the new normality for the time being) re-openings and celebrations have begun.

We have worked on some incredible designs this month, one in particular that stands out is the amazing flower mirror arch we created in SASS studios. It's every florists dream to get stuck in to such a large scale creation and to be given the freedom of flower choices and colours was an absolute pleasure!



Weddings now have the go ahead, although on a small scale of 30 people (good excuse to short list your favourite people mind ;)) we have had lots of enquiries of flower designs on a smaller scale.

My advice would be to concentrate on the bridal party, this includes the famous Bride bouquet, Bridesmaid designs, Buttonholes and smaller details like Wands.

Wands are an incredibly sweet design if you have little ones as Bridesmaids or Flower Girls, they bring such fun to the day. Although be wary the fairy princess wand often gets turned in to a weapon of some kind.

Another beautiful detail is flower crowns, I adore head circlets. Often people are scared of these designs but you don't always have to go full on. If you have the right style and look they can be breathtaking, just one flower like Gypsophilia or Baby's Breathe as you may know it can look just as stunning as a full on abundant crown of blooms, lush!

Wrist corsages can be a lovely addition especially if you have an outfit on a delicate scale. There not just the choice of ribbon and flower anymore, designs can be created on beautiful pearl bracelets which sit comfortable for the whole of the big day!

A good florist will always tell you if it would look lovely and a great florist would suggest things you would never of thought of for it to look incredible!


Popular this month...

So many Birthdays have been happening this month, certainly a popular month!

There has been a massive trend in people choosing the KERRY'S BEST OF THE BUNCH design, which I would always recommend your guaranteed to get the best seasonal flower at the best quantity. Some popular flowers this month have been...

Talking of Birthdays Rock + Wilds little ones celebration was a hit, although the weather wasn't the kindest we certainly brought the colour! We had balloons of all colours and I'm happy to report the balloon arch was a success!!!

Right signing off, thanks again to each and everyone of you who has supported us in these first couple of months we really appreciate it! Stay safe everyone and you know where we are for all your flower needs!
