November hustle and bustle

Well, what an exciting few weeks we have had!

Firstly there was the beautiful wedding we created in St Andrews for our lovely bride Miriam Stevens. She chose for her bridal bouquet a large pompom mass of Avalanche roses and a smaller pompom mass of Cool Water roses for her bridesmaids. She then chose gorgeous clouds of green Hydrangea heads and White Majolika spray roses; Avalanche, Sweet Avalanche and Cool Water roses; and deep purple Vanda Orchid heads - a wonderfully soft/strong, stunning combination! Then for the table flowers, a combination of different heights and styles of vases were used across the room for a more bespoke style, really beautiful.

We also managed to get a sneaky picture of the bride herself in her wonderful flowing dress.

It was a bright, cool Autumn day and the venue and St Andrews looked truly stunning. Ruby took the opportunity to take in some of the beautiful scenery too. It was an absolute pleasure to be involved in Miriam's special day.

We also had the great opportunity of creating vibrant table centres and stage flowers for the SQA Awards at the Science Centre. We created these using Green Shamrocks and Purple Spotty Vanda Orchid Heads. We also submerged little lights into the purple coloured water which, gave a really lovely twinkle across the room.

Our Christmas stock has started to arrive and we have been up to our eyeballs in boxes containing beautiful little vases, candles, tea light and candle holders, large floor vases, cut glass table decorations, garlands, baubles, hanging decorations, wall pieces, soft furnishings and local hand-made chocolates...we could go on and on. And a cute little toadstool seat which came in handy whilst unpacking for hours! Come in and have a look for yourself!

And last but not least, we are over the moon to reveal that we are currently working with Vivienne Westwood Glasgow. Combining beautiful flowers and arrangements with their amazing bags and shoes. Come and see our fabulous 'Pop-Up' window display showing some of their GORGEOUS items!

Our favourite is the black Orb bag brimming with red Gerbera, peacock feathers and Vanda Orchids and also the red and gold heart shoes, very festive. Also, the quirky white Cherry Shoes on a tray of purple, red and silver votive and Gerbera makes a different yet stunning centre piece, why not have your favourite shoes or bags as floral works of art! We are excited to tell you that we are also going to be running a little competition where the lucky winner will receive a totally unique Ruby Flowers Christmas Wreath with some Vivienne Westwood goodies on it!
