proposals, bespoke design, coffee and cake...

Well it's wednesday... and for us that means designing flowers for Mar Hall, our favourite hotel! This week we are are installing beautiful vases filled with Phalenopsis and Lady Jane orchids. *swoon* Carrie (not that one) is getting married there in just a couple of weeks and popped into our shop yesterday to finalise her flower choices. The ceremony will be held in the Burgandy Suite, where we'll be making gorgeous posies for the end of every pew with Grand Prix, Passion and Guelda roses. We are designing flowers for the marquee... and of course the beautiful bridal party. Keep checking back for photos and more delightful details! I can't wait to post them.

I want to introduce you to our friends at The Bench Furniture Company.
Tracey, has fantastic taste! She has developed a range of luxury furniture created by expert craftsmen and upholsterers. Each item is made from a selection of rich velvet or high quality linen in a range of colours, chosen to suit your needs and match your existing decor.

Another thing I love about Wednesdays... is Orange. Going to the cinema has to be the perfect way to spend a rainy night in Glasgow! 2-4-1 makes me happy :)

If you haven't yet, go and see The Proposal.... even if you're not a 'chick flick' kind of girl, it is worth it for the stunning flowers (and the louboutins!).

If you are a 'chick flick' kind of girl, then get ready to swoon.... We've had lots of romantic men splashing out on their ladies this week! 3 hand-ties sent throughout the day to someone very special, a beautiful hand-tie to be sent fortnightly for a WHOLE year to a very lucky wife.
Next week, we'll be posting some exciting ideas for Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest coffee morning!

hello love

First of all, thanks for stopping by!

We got to thinking that it might just be a fabulous idea to let you, our lovely Ruby Flowers customers, get to know us a little better. So here we are... the first post of our boutique's blog! (so excited!) We want this space to give you an insight into all of our favourites, from the season's best flower choices to the tiny details that make up our wedding and event design. Our aim is to sell quality, stylish flowers that you and your friends will love.

So over the weeks and months to come, expect to see plenty of gorgeous ideas and images that influence our work.
