‘Yes, the date is still free. We’d be delighted to prepare your wedding flowers for you…’

The bride from last week was on the phone, booking us for her wedding flowers and I was in the process of taking her deposit. Phew, I thought. I was convinced we’d lost that one.

While I was talking to her, a thin man with a pasty white face walked into the flower shop and was trying to say something to me so I put my hand over the phone and told him that I’d be with him in a moment. But he was insistent.

16. How to Make a Tassel Key Ring

This episode is subtitled: ‘Put your sunglasses on…’

I was flicking through my recent posts and was startled by the fact that they’ve been a bit lilac lately. And not only that, my photography skills being what they are, it is a very murky lilac. So this week you have yellow. Get your sunglasses on and prepare to be dazzled by today’s fun tassel key ring.

I was inspired by the lovely Guus, our Dutchman who brings us his truck packed with flowers every week. I can’t believe I’m 50 and my heart skips a beat whenever I see him climbing down from the cab, his long lean legs making short work of the distance to the ground. Jaz gives me a knowing nudge and I have to really focus on being nonchalant.

There were no emergency flower requirements this week, we just needed a bit of a top up to tide us through to our next main delivery. While Guus played with Blue salvagebox.co.uk - Blue sittingI chose a few items including some beautiful white roses, some gerberas and a big bunch of craspedia. Craspedia is such a useful little flower – it adds a touch of the unusual to a bouquet and it’s obviously very trendy at the moment because it pops up a lot in magazine photographs, its small but bold structure seemingly ideal in a modern house setting. I have some on my Yellow Pinterest board.

This episode is subtitled: ‘Sharpie at the ready…’

Good morning everyone. It’s going to be a very busy day ahead so I’ve had to get up extra early to write this week’s post for you. It will be all hands on deck from 8.30 as we prepare most of the flowers for tomorrow’s big wedding. I don’t think there will be much time for food so thank goodness for coffee. The smell from my steaming cup is just starting to dance in my nostrils and is beginning to wake up my brain.
