Simply Stunning…Simply Stems
12 May 2020
The beginning of lockdown left me with a little more time than usual…which was strange for a busy bee like me. So, what did I do? I imagined all of my regular customers, at home, with no fresh flowers to cheer them up and I came up with a plan to bring back floral bliss!
After all, flowers and plants have the power to make you feel more positive and less stressed – which we all need right now! Scent can help relieve anxiety and certain plants purify the air around them, filling our lungs with mood boosting oxygen. They can also heighten our creativity and productivity, vital for those of us home schooling and working from home.
I’d had the idea of running a flower subscription service for a long time. With so many of my clients busy with work or running a home, I thought the concept of setting up a regular delivery of fresh flowers would appeal to their demanding lifestyles. However, being busy myself, I just hadn’t had the time to make the vision a reality!
So, in that first week of lockdown, when I was looking at all the different ways I could continue being a florist and doing what I love; I came up with the idea for ‘Simply Stems’.
It’s a weekly, fortnightly or monthly flower subscription service that is delivered directly to your front door, in three monthly cycles.
Each delivery will be different, based on the best of what the season has to offer. I will choose the freshest and most beautiful mix of locally grown and Dutch flowers, handpicked by me from the flower markets.
The flowers will be delivered wrapped in paper, with the stems left long ready for you to arrange. Whether that’s a series of small displays in vases around your home, or one big, statement bouquet to create a feature in your favourite room – the choice is yours ??
At the moment my Simply Stems range is available for contactless delivery within a 3-mile radius of the shop. Not only does this make the service more personal, the flowers will be in prime condition when they arrive. And best of all, if you start a subscription service, you only ever pay for the first delivery. The rest are free!
If you live a bit further afield then watch this space as we have big plans for our subscription service!
