I am delighted to announce that we are collaborating with Buckets of Blooms to bring you a fabulous new service… Buckets & Bouquets!
There will be ribbons from Pompom Blossom & British grown Roses from The Real Flower Company. This is for those of you who would like buy buckets of gorgeous home grown flowers to do some of your wedding flowers yourselves, but would also love to have beautiful bouquets, buttonholes and corsages professionally made for you, by us, and finished with your choice of beautiful hand dyed raw silk ribbons.
With this service there is a set price for each of our designs, no matter which styles you go for.
There is no minimum order (except that we expect you’ll need a bridal bouquet and grooms buttonhole or variations on that).
It is a first come first served service and only one order will be accepted for each available date.
Collection is from our workshop in Dummer from Floribunda Rose Workshop, Up Street, Dummer, RG25 2AL or Niki may be able to deliver upon request.
I’ll let Niki of Buckets of blooms explain how the buckets side of the collaboration works…
“Buckets of Blooms will select and condition beautiful British flowers and foliage in colours to compliment your chosen wedding palette from the best of the seasonal flowers available.
Typically, we will select 3 focal flowers, 4 filler flowers and 1 foliage with approximately 8 stems of each to enable you to create lovely arrangements of your own.
The flowers will be in buckets (which are yours to keep) of water for you to collect in good time for your event. Then you can begin the creating!”
Decorated jam jars are available for you to use at your event and return, or perhaps for you to send home with your guests as a memento of a happy occasion.
Niki will even show you round her gorgeous flower field and you may even be able to see your flowers growing (depending on how far in advance of your wedding day you visit). Either way it’s a lovely experience and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Niki’s lovely, incredibly knowledgeable and her flowers are absolutely gorgeous too.
We will work closely with Buckets of Blooms to ensure that the colours of your personal flowers beautifully compliment your overall wedding flowers. Once they have been conditioned we will design and create beautiful bouquets in your choice of three styles.
1) The more Traditional hand tied bouquet “Isabel”
2) The Natural hand tied bouquet “Amelia”
3) The Wild and whimsical bouquet “Ophelia”
Buttonholes and corsages will be made using flowers and foliages from Buckets of Blooms and will compliment your bouquets and DIY buckets.
These will be finished with your choice of silk ribbons (there are 9 beautiful colours to choose from) or twine and supplied with pearl pins. These will be packed into mini glass bottles and will be ready to collect from our workshop at the same time as your flower buckets.
* If you would like to add scented garden roses to any of your personal flowers these will be sourced from The Real Flower Company from June through September (they look beautiful and smell absolutely divine!) These are available for an additional cost.
All of our flowers are packaged with recyclable materials ~ your bouquets will come in large glass ‘kilner’ style jars (which can double up as receiving vases at your venue) in kraft gift bags and your buckets of flowers will be just that.
Instructions on how to best care for your flowers will be included with your flowers.
