Recently we have had the great opportunity to create stunning floral displays for Cameron Presentations at a Wedding Show at the SECC. Our lovely Caroline and Johnny were there on the Saturday to set up our gorgeous work on their modern light installations, giving the prospective brides ideas for a more unique wedding day.

Over the last week we created flowers for two weddings, both with completely different but stunning concepts and themes. We welcome any brides-to-be to come in and discuss their dream wedding flowers with us and see what our many years of experience and knowledge will help them to create for their wonderful day.

We have been doing some lovely contract work recently, beautiful vases for receptions, table flowers for restaurants and arrangements for bars to help keep everyone’s spirits high in this cold, dark weather.

Every week our stock seems to change more towards the autumnal and wintery themes with flowers such as Snowberry, Pussy Willow and Physalis Lanterns. We have many loyal and wonderful customers who come in week after week to collect gorgeous hand-tied bunches for them to pop into their vases at home and truly dress their interiors in style.

We have some gorgeous white flowers and foliages in at the moment such as these beautiful Cotton stems which are ideal for those more minimal and neutral interiors. We also have a lovely selection of home ware, our current favourite is the crystal facet stem holders which we think look amazing with little stems of Snowberry. Keep an eye out for what other lovely pieces we get in over the next couple of months or so in the run up to...dare I say it...Christmas!

This week Ruby loves the David Austin rose which has a wonderful ‘whipped cream’ centre and we think looks so pretty floating in this little goldfish bowl. Another favourite this week is the ‘Purple Power’ rose which we have in stock for a wedding. It has a gorgeous scent of rosy garden raspberries and is simply divine! We think it beautifully complements this yummy Damask Rug from one of our favourite nationwide stores - Habitat, perfect for keeping your feet cosy on the cold nights in. (And it is currently in the sale, hurrah!).

Much love and keep watching this space x x

Autumn at Ruby's

This week we are delighted to welcome a new member of staff to the Ruby Clan! Caroline is an amazing florist and is lovely to work with making for a fantastic buzz in the shop. We would also like to put a special shout out to our hard working and up beat delivery driver, Johnny, whom we adore!

Other things Ruby Flowers loves......Cupcakes......Sex and the City wedding dresses and flowers, an inspiration for all our beautiful brides. Vintage tea sets which is our theme this week. We are selling pretty flower filled tea cups and vintage tea pots.

Our shop is full of lovely pinks, autumnals, whites, blues........we especially love our huge pom pom blooms and lush hydrangea heads.
You'll see from passing the shop we have some lovely new stock in including a stunning huge decorative mirror, perfect as a statement piece in a hallway dressed with a beautiful vase of flowers.

We have a range of gorgeous decorative gourdes and mini pumpkins which make a lovely centre piece in a lovely vase or fish bowl.
We are delighted to be showing at the wedding show at the SECC this weekend and hope to inspire you with our display and friendly team.
With love xxx
