Valentine’s Day Is Everyday!!!

Love Exists Another 364 Days Of The Year. 

I know being a florist, I shouldn't say this…. Valentines Day, is so commercialized. It's the day that everyone races out and spends a fortune on red roses. When really most women DON'T EVEN REALLY LIKE RED ROSES!!! Sorry to any men who are reading this.  Honestly why don't  you try buying  your partners favourite flower? Instead of the same dozen red roses.  If you take a note out of my florist book (I'm female by the way). Do something different next year and watch the response you get. TRUST ME!!! 

I bet  you don't even know why you give red roses on valentines day? I have been researching it and there are all different theories / stories. Some of the things I have been reading shows that its actually more of a brutal story rather than romantic…..

What I do know, is the build up and the hours and hours of work that goes into one day is exhausting. If you treated your loved ones everyday, the way you do on valentines day, there would be so much more love in the air and less negative energy. I know we would all be very broke if that was the case…. Why not surprise a friend or your partner with a bunch of flowers, their favourite lollies or even their favourite bottle of wine. For absolutely NO REASON AT ALL, just because you love them!!!!

Yet people forget that the most important relationship is the one you have with yourself. "LOVE YOURSELF FIRST & EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS INTO LINE" - Lucille Ball". Be happy within you and love the person who you are and you will make everyday a happy valentines day for YOU!!!.

I know Im giving you all the honest truth but the thing is….. We all need to wake up to ourselves and we don't always have to "KEEP UP WITH THE JONES" .  Rheannon Lee xx

How To Say Good bye…

Saying Goodbye With Flowers & A Personal Touch….

Floristry can be all about big events, weddings and Happy Birthdays. Of course there are funerals too.I really do enjoy making funeral pieces. As the family is trusting me to make something so special for their day to say GOODBYE.

I always feel so honoured when people ask me, if I will create the flowers for their loved ones. Even though it is a sad time, it is a time to remember their happy face, the joy they brought to your life and the fun you had together.

When I speak to the family members about what their angels personality was like. I find out as much as I can. From who they were as a person, what colours they liked and what sort of environment they enjoyed.  As I like to create pieces that express exactly who they were.

I have worked for other businesses in the past, watching them mass produce casket covers one by one. Just like there was no love and that it was just another job.  After seeing that with my own eyes, I swore to myself I would NEVER, EVER do that to a family. As every person that has passed is just so special, they too need a special send off, with happy memories for the families.

Using a certain flower, scent, colour or even adding a personal belonging, is something special
for the family to see.  Using a scent (say Gardenia's for example), every time you smelt that flower you could be reminded of that person. Knowing they are looking down on you, or if your lucky enough you could maybe feel their precence at that very moment.

Creating casket covers for people whom I have known and loved, has always been tough. When making these pieces, I know they wouldn't want me to be upset. The crazy thing is, something comes over me and I am able to create something more AMAZING than I first invisioned. People ask me.... How can I possibly do it? The strength within you is stronger than you think!!!

I know I can make a sad day just that little bit extra special for you and your family. So if you would like me make something amazing for you, just give me a call and I would be more than happy too help.  Rheannon Lee xx
