What a Blooming Year!
24 December 2015
As our last blog before Christmas, we thought it was timely to take a look back at what has been another momentous year for the Flower Lounge and for many of our customers!
Being a florist is a very personal service and we become intertwined with the lives of the people we meet along the way. From moments of pure joy such as celebrating the birth of a new baby or the long awaited wedding day, to times of sadness as we work with people planning a funeral for a loved one, we’re with our customers every step of the way.
It’s not just ‘flowers’ to us; it’s about how flowers can evoke an emotion or memory. We take pride in making sure we understand the person, the event, the venue, for which we are designing flowers, so they are a cherished part of the day. It’s always lovely when we get great feedback from our customers and this year we’ve been overwhelmed by the letters and voices of appreciation – it really makes the hard work worthwhile. They are such a delight to read we’ve added a selection to our website!
We’ve also had the pleasure of working on some amazing weddings this year. From the small and intimate to the absolute extravaganzas! Each one has brought with it new levels of creativity and innovation – something we totally relish. It was great for our work and approach to customer service to be recognised by The Wedding Industry Awards; as we took home the trophy for North West Wedding Florist of the Year – for the second time in a row! We’re now waiting with bated breath for January, when the National award winner will be announced…watch this space.
Not only have we worked with some wonderful customers but we’ve had the honour of collaborating with other amazing suppliers. There’s too many to mention, but a big thanks to photography Jonny Draper who has not only created some beautiful photos for The Flower Lounge but has made our flower arrangements look spectacular in all his wedding photography. If you’re looking for recommended suppliers, then visit our new ‘Wedding Friends’ page. Finally, we’d like to thank the local independent businesses we work with including Cocoa Cabana and Belly Buttons Designs for giving that lovely ‘extra something’ to our gift bouquets.
If you love flowers as much as we do, then why not sign up to our monthly newsletter? We have lots of inspiration ideas, special offers and you’ll be entered into a monthly prize draw to win one of our beautiful bouquets.
From everyone at The Flower Lounge we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
