Beautiful Finds – Christmas Baubles

All the lights are shining So brightly everywhere And the sound of children's Laughter fills the air And everyone is singing I hear those sleigh bells ringing Santa won't you bring me the one I really need Won't you please bring my baby to me..Confession time. We like Mariah a little too much. Its bordering on obsessional. Her picture is yet to join the likes of Anton du Beke, The Queen and a giraffe in our "all the things we love" board. Bide your time Mariah, perhaps this will be your year. We are the busy elves of the flower world, clusters of these gorgeous baubles have finally filled every corner of the shop. I cannot wait to decorate our tree. I love buying one special bauble every year, wrapped (beautifully of course) and presented in what should be, some sort of glamourous ceremony. It is duly unwrapped and placed in prime position on the chosen tree. Tradition is what Christmas is all about. Buy some baubles.

Rushall Farm, Some little thoughts, The Black Barn, Venues, Wedding Flowers

Zoë and Ben’s Gorgeous Romantic Barn Wedding

Zoë first contacted us almost a year ago to start thinking about the flowers for her wedding taking place in The Black Barn, Rushall Farm. The barn is stunning, set in the middle of the Berkshire countryside with fields as far as you can see. With this stunning backdrop, we took full inspiration from the barns surroundings when designing the bridal bouquet and table centres for the wedding. Zoë's wedding bouquet was filled with English grown roses, scented stocks, sweet peas, lisianthus and hints of scented Baby Blue eucalyptus, it certainly smelt amazing! Collections of old glass jars filled the long banqueting tables in The Black Barn, each filled with a miniature hand-tie of flowers. Queen Anne's Lace is complimented with scented stocks, English grown roses, garden sedum, alchemilla mollis, eucalyptus, mint and agapanthus to create these wild, garden inspired wedding table centres. The final touches involved winding ivy and fairy lights around the rustic centre pillars in the barn. Gorgeous
