Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn!

This summer was a hot one! We faced record - breaking temperatures here in Tunbridge Wells, and with just the two fans in the shop, it was certainly a test for us girls!

But with a flower fridge and probably far too many ice lollies, we made it through the other side! We are now swapping our caramel frappacinos for pumpkin spiced lattes, and getting ready to welcome all the beautiful flowers that Autumn has to offer!

But before we wave goodbye to summer for another year, lets just take a quick look back at all that the past few months held here in the shop...

Summer Flowers

Every year when the weather turns warmer, we get all fluttery and excited to see the return of everyone's favorite summer flower... Peonies!!

We were positively peony crazy this year, with the beautiful blooms in every corner of the shop- along with other summery delights such as sweet pea's, stocks and dahlias.

The Royal Wedding!

If you wondered if us florists had any interest in the Royal Wedding back in May... YES of course we did!!

We had the event playing on all of the four computer screens in the shop, on full volume so that we could see and hear wherever we were in the shop! We all crowded round the screen to catch a glimpse of her gorgeously simple bouquet, and marvel over that spectacular archway!

The Royal Wedding was a lovely way to kick off our very own wedding season here in the shop.

Wedding Season!!

With summer, comes the start of our exciting wedding season! This year we were fortunate enough to work with many beautiful, wonderful couples to help make their wedding dreams a reality.

Although we have been rushed off our feet, and out setting up weddings in 35 degree heat, we have had an amazing season and have enjoyed every second of it!

Our official wedding season may be coming to a close, but happily we have many more coming up in the next few months- so keep your eyes peeled on our social media for the pictures!

Welcome Autumn!

It was sad to say goodbye to our beloved summer flowers; but we are very excited to welcome in all that the Autumnal season has to offer!

We are currently going mad over the beautiful warm, rich shades of orange and red. This season, we are happy to show off flowers such as hypericum, golden chrysanthemum blooms, orange dahlias and red oak.

You can either pop by the shop, or browse online to see all that we have to offer!
