As many of you know, we've sold fresh flowers from the day we opened our doors at 49 High street. Julia our resident florist, chooses only the freshest blooms for the table at the shop and her naturalistic, free form displays, often using unusual and locally grown varieties, have garnered her a loyal following over the many years we've been open. Many fans of our flower table have since recommended her for weddings and special events and we've been lucky enough to work on some really wonderful projects.
Whilst we loathe plastic and silk flower alternatives, we have always loved preserved flowers and have been experimenting with drying our own and making everlasting posies with them. Julia makes really pretty bouquets, always in her signature style, wrapped with brown paper and tied with paper string and often there's a basket of beautiful bouquets for sale at the shop...
Since the pandemic has made it more complicated in sourcing our fresh flowers, we have turned our flower table into offering preserved ones, at least for the immediate future. We are now offering a beautiful range of flowers, seed heads and leaves, specially chosen for their rare quality and fragile beauty and we do hope you love them as much as we do.
A small selection is now available on our website, by clicking here. Posies and larger bouquets and arrangements will be added to our table over the coming weeks but if you have something special in mind, please drop us a line and let us know. We'd be happy to chat..
