Valentines Range

We have been working hard since christmas, planning our valentines day range. True to our heart we wanted to give you that special Blossom Tree vintage feel, but at the same time we know times have been hard and value for money together with quality product is so key, especially this year.
So we hope you like this years range we have put together. We have sourced fabulous long stemmed freedom roses, which is a magnificent rose at a very reasonable price , together with some fantastic wraps and containers.
If the traditional red rose is not your thing, then why not have a look at our gorgeous seasonal spring flowers, featured under spring on the website www.theblossomtree.co.uk
Happy Valentines Day ! xxx

Come into our world....

Its early spring, christmas just gone, valentines day almost here, which means lots of men (& women) will have been or about to be, down on bended knee ready to whisper THOSE immortal words , ' Will you marry me?'
This time of year the wedding industry is gearing themselves up ready to showcase their talents at wedding fayres & shows, to all of those about to embark on the journey of wedding planning.
Wedding fayres i admit can be abit daunting at first but they really are the perfect opportunity to see venues dressed for the big day and to discuss ideas with potential suppliers.
For us as a florist, wedding fayres are great as we can be creative, show new designs, 'test the water' with new colour combinations and generally are able to get a feel for the year ahead.

If you would like to come along and see our work and discuss any of your wedding ideas, we shall be exhibiting at ......

7th February Ramada Newton Park Hotel, Newton Solney
7th Donington Manor Hotel, Castle Donington

24th February The Pavillion , Branston Golf Club, Branston

Most run from 12-4pm, with the exception of Branston Golf Club, which is 6-9pm.

Hope to see you there! x

Teresa & Dominic's Winter Wedding

This is one of my favourite weddings to date, the perfect winter wedding, complete with a dusting of snow and bright blue skies.
Teresa's wintery theme was around the colourscheme of white, silver and navy, which we decided to complement with these white frill edged tulips. They almost look like snowflakes . The foliage of silver brunia , kochia and eucalyptus picked out the silver in her colourscheme and gave a wintery collar to the bridal bouquet.

The buttonholes and corsages were coordinated to match.....

We used seasonal flowers and foliages in the large arrangements, including beautiful white amaryllis.

And for a real wintery feel, the table centrepieces were made of twinkley silver birch stems with white phalenopsis orchid heads attached. We filled the vases with clear gel to look like ice and floating pearls with looked like tiny snowballs in the ice. The marquee would of looked spectacular when it started to get dark and by candlelight.

Gayle & Olie

A beautiful wedding we did in october 2009. Our bride, Gayle, wanted a vintage themed bouquet in warmer colours, so we chose a variety of vintage roses, astilbe and hypericum berries to reflect the season, and dusky pink lisianthus to soften.

We introduced some slightly deeper shades in the table centrepieces so they would show up nicely across the room.

A lovely themed wedding and Gayle was really pleased with the result, heres the lovely comments she gave us ....' thankyou so much for such superb flowers. The colours coordinated perfectly and i loved the vintage feel of the amnesia roses. The table arrangements were also perfect. You were a pleasure to work with and very reliable. I had no worried throughout the whole process and you understood my requirements very well' . Everyones happy ! :)

Happy New Year!!

After a lovely christmas break, we are raring to go and look foward to an exciting 2010.
Not one to be sentimental, a new year, new start...can't wait! xx
