Flowers My Style !
There is a very good reason why I have been a quiet little blogger of late. I have been preparing to launch my new florist business. I am gathering bits and bobs and writing ideas down.
I am thinking of a business name and getting just a little bit creative.
I have never ever been one to follow trends.
I get extremely bored with traditional ways of wrapping flowers. Plastic wrap and nylon ribbon bores me to tears.
There are sooooo many wonderful textiles, ribbon and vintage fabrics out there in the marketplace already so why not use them ?
Why not use something that can be recycled or re used. Re purposing is a fantastic thing.
I have my very first Mothers Day as a florist in a few weeks and I wanted to put my own little stamp on my product.
Yes a little plastic has been used, but only a very small amount. Instead I have wrapped my blooms with doilies and fabrics and I will tie them all up with simple twine or fabric strips.
Vintage is my theme this Mothers Day and you will find my arrangements being presented in vintage vases and bowls instead of plastic ones. The vases and bowls can be re used and minimal impact to the environment is my object.
Pictured underneath is a teensy look at a couple of my designs. I have lots of beautiful arrangement ideas that are a little out of the ordinary, but I will keep that my little secret for now.
I would love to hear your thoughts !
Do you like ? :-)
A pretty tray cloth just found itself being recycled as wrapping paper.
and a 90 year old lace doily has put the finishing touch on the same blooms and given it another look.
and then I pulled all of those apart, added some Lillie's and remade it into this.
This time I used a rusty old pink tin box to arrange my flowers in.
If you were to order flowers for yourself or a friend would vintage be your style ?
Would you prefer traditional, vintage or modern ?
Big hugs to you all and thanks for visiting !
