Now that's organised :)

Firstly let me apologise for not keeping this as up to date as I should do - actually in a way I'm not sorry, because the reason I can't keep on top of it as often as I would like is because we have been so busy in the shop there just hasn't been time to spend 5 minutes at the computer. Our FB account and twitter haven't been updated for over a month I think - thankfully you are all lovely enough to stick with us and every day more and more people are adding us on FB and following this blog - even when there's nothing new to read - so again massive thanks to you all. 

Obviously the title of this entry isn't in any way meant about us - although of course I do have to keep myself as organised as possible or I'd never get any time away from the shop - but on Monday I booked in a wedding for May ...... 2017. Now I know we do get booked up in advance - some weekends in 2016 are already fully booked - but 3 years ahead is a first for us (and me as a florist; in the 28 years I've been working in the industry I've never known a bride that organised). It's all quite exciting though. We've already got the flowers and colours sorted for our lucky bride. 

Talking of weddings, this Saturday just passed, we had to make some more of the marquee flower balls to hang. This time the bride promised me she would make sure nobody was seated underneath any of them (so I was able to sleep soundly - last time was awful as I knew one was hanging directly above the bride, and while I knew the ball itself was 100% stable, I wasn't too convinced about the Marquee's system for hanging them and I was terrified that something on their system would fail/break. Thankfully nothing did, but to put my mind at rest our lovely bride made sure she took precautions for me too (she was using the same marquee). 

The areas that appear to be darker - empty - spaces are in fact filled with blue coloured flowers, but for some reason blue can be a very hard colour to capture in a photo. Although it may not look that big I can tell you it had a diameter of just over 3ft.
That's about all I have time for right now, but I wanted to let you all know we are still here, and that I haven't forgotten any of you. Thank you for keeping us so busy.
