Happy Hogmanay

Wishing all of you a very Happy Hogmanay. Mood Flowers will be with you at the bells. Look out for our stunning displays of white amaryllis on STV's Hogmanay show "Midnight" with Stephen Jardine and Michell McManus. The show starts at 11:30pm this evening.

End of 2010

We've come to the end of another busy year. The last few weeks have been hectic with all our Christmas weddings, Flower School classes and hand tied gift bouquets. Nick even found some time to pop back into STV's the Hour on the 13th December and showed Stephen and Michelle how to make floral place cardholders - perfect for Christmas but great for the rest of the year too.

We'd like to thank all our customers and look forward to working with you all again in 2011. We have so much in store with lots of new developments at Mood Flowers.

Christmas Fayre at Hotel du Vin

On Sunday after Nick and Laura delivered wedding flowers to Cameron House and House for an Art Lover, they joined a host of other suppliers at a fabulous Christmas Fayre at Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens. It seemed that half of the people in the West End realised this was the place to be and it was great to catch up with old and new customers alike. Don't you love a lazy Sunday!

Modern Apprenticeship Awards

Last week we were delighted to design the table flowers for the Modern Apprenticeship Awards at the Radisson Blue hotel in Glasgow. They opted for posy style arrangements in lilacs, mauves and purples.

Christmas on STV's The Hour

Last week, Nick once again headed down to the STV studios to join Michelle and Stephen on STV's The Hour. He gave viewers his top tips on decorating a Christmas tree as well as demonstrating how to create the perfect door wreath. If you want to find out more about Christmas decorating then join Nick at one of our Flower School classes in our Design Studio next week.

Crazy busy week

It's the end of another week at Mood Flowers and we're all exhausted. You know when you arrive at a hotel and all the Christmas trees, stair garlands and pillar decorations have magically arrived overnight - well it's hard working florists like us that make it happen. We've decorated around 45 Christmas trees this week including a 15ft one in the lobby at Radisson Blu.

After all that, this weekend we created flowers for weddings at Cameron House, Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens and House for an Art Lover. Here's a few photos from the preparations and delivery of the Cameron House wedding. Note the bottles of lucozade on the work benches - we're thinking about buying shares in the company!
