Chelsea Flower Show

Last Thursday we headed down to the Chelsea Flower Show to check out some beautiful flowers, amazing gardens and superb sculpture. London was sweltering like the rest of the country and the crowds were out in force but what an amazing day.

Evening Times - The Apprentice

As the TV show The Apprentice nears the end of the series, Nick spent the day trading place with Jacqueline O'Donnell from The Sisters restaurant in Kelvingrove. He learned to be a trainee chef and then put Jacqueline through her paces as an apprentice florist. If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!

Weekend of weddings

This weekend we had the privilege of designing weddings for eight different brides all over the country. From Friday until Monday, our wedding florists travelled from Auchrannie on the Isle of Arran to Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Gardens and from Atholl Palace in Pitlochry to Lochgreen in Troon. Each wedding was unique, every bride individual. Here are some of the highlights:

Styling - House for an Art Lover

We love working at one of Glasgow's most iconic buildings - House for an Art Lover. Recently we put in these simple designs for a photo shoot - simple lines, elegant flowers and a stunning setting.

Peony season is here...

Every year we wait patiently along with many of our brides for peony season. Last weekend we combined these stunning pink ones with Pacific Blue roses, Sweet Avalanche roses, white lilac and freesia along with trailing green amaranthus to create these table centrepieces for a wedding at The Vu in Bathgate. Congratulations to the happy couple Jacqueline and James!

White Wedding

A few weeks ago we got to work in the stunning St Andrews Cathedral for an all white wedding. We filled the church with Avalanche roses, bouvardia, lisianthus, gladioli and lilies - the perfect way to start the busy summer wedding season.
