VALENTINE'S DAY floral sales are predicted to be huge this year with prices of red roses and many other flowers going through the roof. So they say.....
I want to bring to the fore some floral and other gifts for anyone and everyone that you love - from a special Daddy to that amazing neighbour and every granny, postman and beau in between.
So I have devised some gift ideas for pockets large and small as well as some lovely products from local shops and artisans to add to any orders you have for me.
Please let me have those orders by Sunday, 7th February if possible so that I can make sure everything is ready for on the Big Day.
I will be operating a contact-free collection service from my home on Sunday morning, 14th February (good excuse for you to nip out for that Sunday paper, wink-wink?) or doorstep delivery (please ask for details) from midday. Other collections/deliveries also possible for items which can be squirrelled away.
ROSES Red, white, yellow, etc, long stemmed, how many - so many choices, all of which affect the price - I am happy to advise, help and find the rose that will fit your happy spot - colour wise, size wise and pocket wise.
Add a little sparkle with a trio of crystals - each trio costs 95p - they can be spiralled onto just one, several or all of your roses Add a simple tall glass bud vase with crushed mirror glass (to hold the roses in place) - suitable for an order of 1-3 roses) for £7.50 Simple but elegantly handwrapped in brown paper with a raffia bow ... £0.00 Handwapped as above but with extra layers of complementary colour £1.50 Styled into a box similar to the one illustrated, swathed in tissue and presented in a long, closed box. In one of 6 sizes and 4 colourways to suit your order - from £3.50
ORCHIDS This beautiful handmade (by me) willow heart has been decorated with a luxurious single stem of cymbidium orchids which are long-lived. With its own little water tank, the orchids will last such a long time and the heart can be kept as a keepsake - or return to me for a refill or alternative embelishment. There are quite a few colour choices available and the price may vary slightly depending on the cost of the orchid stem at the time of ordering. Willow Heart with Cymbidium Orchid Stem - £30.00 (Introductory special price)
THE BOTTOMLESS VASE This simple vase, swathed IN raffia is my preferred way to prepare hand-tied flowers with no need for a cellophane water bubble. Additionally, if refill florals are required, they are be spiralled, cut to size and simply gift wrapped so the recipient can just drop them into the same vase, over and over again. This Valentine's Day, I am happy to liaise with you to fill these vases with red flowers of all descriptions but not necessarily expensive premium roses or shorter stemmed roses in a myriad of colours. Frilly edged and double red tulips are available, if ordered soon enough and would look fabulous in this vase with other spring flowers. Prices from: £30
THE VALENTINE FLORAL CUPCAKE KIT Something for children to make for a loved one - a lovely little workshop in a kit with easy to understand instructions and all that is needed to make a pretty little floral cupcake like the one depicted complete with embellishment and a Valentine's card to write. £9.50. Complete the gift if you would like to with some scrumptious macarons for £8.00 more. A beautiful gift bag costs £2.00 SPECIAL OFFER - BUY ALL THREE ITEMS FOR £`17.50 - INCLUDES GIFT CARD.
WILLOW VINTAGE HEART This beautiful willow heart has taken a time to create with no less than seven different dried elements - taking centre stage five Bombastic spray roses. This piece is postable and fits in a small parcel sized box. I am making these to order but only have a limited supply of these stunning roses so please order yours soon. More willow hearts are pictured and available to order my "Shop Window" page. The price of this heart is £26.5o
GLASS TERRARIUMS The small 10 cm glass terrarium costs £9.50 each - they would make a great Valentine's gift in a gift bag along with some of the artisan products listed below. The large terrarium cost £40 and, just for this promotion, comes with a complimentary gift bag worth £2.00
