Blooming Lovely's Blog
A Blooming Lovely welcome to you, thank you for popping over to our blog page.
We hope you enjoy what we post into our blog. This blog is mainly to portray to you, what work goes into everyday shop life here at Blooming Lovely from the first cuppa when we get in to the last just before we go home to our beautiful families. We hope to keep it fun and informative for your enjoyment.
Every day brings in new people looking for something unique and personal for their special occasion from a welcoming a new baby into a family, to a loving farewell tribute for a dear loved one and every occasion in-between. We find it a great privilege in providing fabulous floral gifts/arrangements for you and the greatest honour in making loving funerals tributes for your loved ones.
With this each day well even, each hour can bring a mix of emotions into us at the shop. From an extremely excited newly Engaged loved up couple planning their wedding flowers at 10.00am to someone who has suffered a terrible loss organising funeral tributes at 10.30am. We pride ourselves on customer service making sure we offer the right support to everyone’s different needs. By being sympathetic and supportive when needed and by joining in the with the excitement as well as staying professional at all times of course. We feel most proud that we are intrusted to create floral arrangements for people’s special occasion.
That’s why as soon as the flowers/foliage are brought into the shop from our preferred suppliers they go through a process called conditioning. Not to worry we aren’t putting hair products onto them! We can be a bit daft very occasional but not when we are caring for our beautiful flowers.
It simply means we take the stems out of the wrap or box they arrive in to avoid them sweating, (we might keep some tropical flowers in there wrap in the colder months.) We then cut every stem on an angle to provide the flowers/foliage with a better clean surface area to drink up the water. They are then place into clean vases with our specialist treated water designed to prolong vase life. Then we pop the vases onto our stand to display them in all their glory.
Every florist will go through this process for every flower delivery, there is a lot of care that goes on behind the scene in florist. We know which flowers like to be colder and which need to be that little be warmer to stay beautiful. We know tricks on how to keep the warm lovers warm in the colder months and the cold lovers cool in the summer months. We know what grade of flower to order in to get the best quality for your needs. When to order in for weddings so the flower is at its best on your big day. We have had years of training so we can care for the flowers and overall prolong their vase life as much as we can for you to enjoy them that little bit longer.
