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

Flower Crowns, The Truth Behind Them….

I Need To Explain, How These Work!!!

Its most girls dreams to wake  up every morning and wear a flower crown for the day. Ok…. thats my dream!!!
Flower crowns look so beautiful, elegant and can make you feel like a princess. They are worn on wedding days, for hens parties, and of course the races.  We can always make what you need.  What we have to do to construct them is, individually wire every leaf, berry, flower, succulent, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!!!!

After you have wired everything (the correct way to make it sturdy and strong), you need to wrap the floral material around each piece of wire.  (This is after you have lost the feeling in your finger tips!!!)

Please please PLEASE….. Don't go on to "HOW TO DIY FLOWER CROWN VIDEOS" and try and get the advice to CABLE TIE the flowers together. As I heard a horror story. A bride was sitting at her hen's lunch, the flower crown fell to pieces, throughout the entire lunch. So please don't take that VERY STUPID  advice.

If you want a big, beautiful, well constructed halo. Get a professional florist to put it together for you. What us florists need you to understand, it can take up to over an hour to make. Sometimes even longer depending on the style of design you are after.  So if you give us enough notice we can make it happen. So please don't call the morning of your event,  thinking one can be magically put together. (You would be surprised how many phone calls we do receive.)

I absolutely LOVE making big, full and lush flower crowns. Having a big focal piece on the crown (like a peony, orchid or even a garden rose), can give it that extra special look.  I must admit seeing little flower girls, all dressed up. Then you add there tiny little flower crown as an angelic halo, they just look too cute!!! Even though they take a long time to make.  I am a sucker and I love making them for myself.

Lucky thing for me is.... My husband is into horse racing, so I love spring carnival time, flower crowns and bubbles.
