The Big Hint

Ah yes.  Valentines Day.

The 14th February.  Annually.

This year it falls on a Friday.  A useful planning fact. 

All the prices are under the chalkboard.

Men. If you need clarification.  If she has done any of the following, please take it with the subtlety of a sledgehammer through a glass window that yes, she would like something ordered. 
a.  Sent you a direct link via email or social media
b.  Laughed out loud in your presence and said that she finds this incredibly funny and that you 'really should have a look at this'
c.  Left the page open on your jointly owned tablet in the hope you'll see it
d.  Made it quite clear and told you outright

I am of the 'b' variety.  Generally this means I get nothing.  I draw the line at making my own Valentines gift.  Ladies, (or gents, you too, you may well like flowers) be subtle at your peril.

The Lovers Deal - £5 off any of the above flower prices when you purchase a voucher for one of our 'Classes for the Florally Curious' at the same time.  ie Single Red and a Class Voucher would total £45.

All bouquets are wrapped in our signature gift wrapping.  Brown Kraft Paper, clear cellophane and finished with an elegant finish of grey and red grosgrain ribbon.  Hand written gift tag and flower food are included.

All or our bouquets are designed to fit within our house style.  We simply can't compete on price with major high street supermarkets and department stores, so we've opted for doing what we do best.  Quality.

All flowers will be looked after by us.  Think of us as floral babysitters.  Conditioned to last, hand selected for their beauty and we're staying away from cost cutting foliages and sticking to beautiful blooms.  Expect lovely eucalyptus, touches of thlaspi green bell and whatever takes our hearts on our buying day.  Roses will be long stem, large headed 'Freedom Roses'.  We are happy to create bouquets using Grand Prix.  Please quadruple the above costs.

The *seasonal blooms that we use will be just that.  The absolute best that we can buy for the money.  There will be a complete mix and they may not even be red.  Roses won't be included unless they 'work' as part of the designs.  Hand chosen to be simply beautiful and to reflect our own personal love of all things nature inspired, you could get anything. It might be tulips mixed with ranunculus, it might be some broom.  What it won't be is 'bulked' out with the 'not nice' stuff.  Gerbera are off the list. These designs are perfect for the person who simply loves flowers, whatever they are.
