Run V.T.

It's an incredibly busy week for us with over 40 Christmas trees to decorate in hotels and homes throughout the West of Scotland as well as our regular floral work and five weddings this weekend! After a 6:00am start, Nick still found some time this morning for 4 hours of filming for STV's The Hour. On location at the luxurious Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens, Nick made a short film giving his top tips on decorating the perfect Christmas tree. The feature is scheduled to run on Monday 6th December at 5pm on STV.

Christmas Flower School

The snow only prevented one of our budding florists from attending our first Christmas Flower School today. It was a great class with everyone making a door wreath, table centre and mantlepiece arrangement along with a few little extras including flower tree decorations and place card holders.

There are three more classes just before Christmas on the 22nd and 23rd December. Check out the Flower School section of our website for more details.

3 weddings, 3 vans and 3 inches of snow (well, almost)!

Yesterday like the rest of the country we woke up to quite a few inches of snow. With three weddings to deliver and set up, we had all the vans packed by 11am and headed out in different directions.

Laura headed off with Brian in Mood2 ("the wee van") to House for an Art Lover on Glasgow's southside, Lucy travelled the short drive to Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens in Mood3 ("the other wee van") and Nick, Abbie and Emma drove in Mood1 ("the big van") to set up the wedding at Cameron House...

Scottish Themed Flowers

Often we are asked to create Scottish themed arrangements for events and weddings. Yesterday's table centres at Cameron House shows that these can still be contemporary. We combined vibrant purple liatris with thistles and foliage, not forgetting a touch of Lindsay tartan.

September Wedding

Last weekend, one of our bride's delivered her beautiful wedding photos from her Glasgow West End wedding back in September this year. A combination of avalanche roses, phalaenopis orchids, calla lilies and anthurium were used througout the wedding flowers to create a sumptuous feel in both the church and hotel. We wish Gillian and David a fantastic life together....

Back To School

Last weekend was the beginning of the 2010/11 Flower School Timetable. We kicked off on Saturday with the Luxury Hand Tied Bouquet class and the Introduction to Flowers class then completed the weekend with our first ever Signature Style Masterclass. Everyone seemed to have a great time and we definitely found some great florists among the participants.

Over the weekend we worked with a huge array of beautiful flowers including sweet avalanche and grand prix roses, cymbidium and phalaenopsis orchids, and parrot tulips. If you'd like to join us at The Flower School then the next four classes are all about Christmas flowers for the home. We still have a few spaces available on each class.

Vintage Style Wedding

We just received these beautiful photos through from the amazing Craig & Eva Sanders Photography. They have captured the timeless elegance of Jenny and Stephen's wedding at Cameron House perfectly. This August wedding is the perfect tonic for a cold November day.....

Deck The Halls....

We had a great evening at Jo Malone last night demonstrating our Christmas wreaths in two private Master Classes. Nick and Rachel worked alongside the team at Jo Malone to create three beautiful wreaths to complement the Pine & Eucalyptus, Red Roses and English Pear & Freesia fragrances.

Mood Flowers & Jo Malone

If you're looking to make a start on getting inspired for Christmas then join Nick and Rachel from 4:30pm tomorrow at Jo Malone in Princes Square for a Christmas Wreath Masterclass taking inspiration from some of their signature fragrances such as Pine & Eucalyptus and Red Roses.

We've been creating the flower displays for this iconic Glasgow shopping experience for around a year now and its great to be working together with them on what promises to be a fantasic afternoon and evening.

Tulips are Back!

Seasonal flowers make for perfect wedding flowers and this week Dutch tulips have made a welcome return to the Mood Flowers Studio. Those clever Dutch growers have stretched the season a little making them available from around now until May.

We don't like to do anything in halves so today we designed a beautiful wedding at Cameron House using over 1,500 white tulips......

If you're looking for further tulip inspiration, take a look at some designs from some of our past weddings and events............
