Oh Here Cometh the Spring!

Well we may have told a small fib - Spring isn't quite on its way, but we're doing our best to jolly things up a little in the shop with tons of spring bulbs. If you're after your Spring hit, well we may just be the place to poke your nose in and have a look around. January is a funny old month. All the decorations are down, the house is looking bare. For some that's the joy of January, a fresh start, but secretly I'm yearning for the glitz and glamour of all the twinkle lights and beautiful jewel […]

Happy New Year

What a year! Without all of you this wouldn't be possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We have wonderful customers, amazing brides, the most fantastic team of dedicated florists, delivery drivers, accountants ... everyone you don't see who makes things tick behind the scenes. There are also wonderfully supportive parents, husbands, children, extended family members who make it possible for Green Parlour to exist. Without all of you, Green Parlour would still be my dream. I can't tell you how thankful I am each day. Our amazing year kicked off with a bang, straight into an early […]

Christmas is Coming ...

Its all go in the Parlour this week with a total flurry of Christmas activity. It is my favourite time of year. Huge installations, giant wreaths, gorgeous winter plants and a whole host of beautiful foliage to adorn wreath after wreath. One of our favourite numbers leaving the shop this week is this huge gypsophilia wreath .Its completely brimming with the stuff. I think we may sneak to the owners house and take a photo of this beauty in its new home (the owner has a rather fabulous front door) I can help but think how beautiful these would look […]

Winter Weddings and Favourite Flowers

On Saturday we finished our last wedding of the year and boy oh boy did we go out with a bang. Gemma and Ben tied the knot at the gorgeous Herons Barn in Pangbourne and we were there in true Green Parlour style to floral up the affair. I love every wedding we do for lots of different floral reasons from muscari in March, peonies in June to English roses in August. November is not skimping on the floral front either, you are spoilt for choice with some of my all time favourite flowers. November weddings should be filled with […]

The Weather Be a Changing?

Is it finally winter yet? A balmy 22degree October, November are you listening? I'm ready for sub zero! There is nothing like a cold snap to get you into the festive preparation mood. This week we are all about Christmas ... in tee shirts, not the usual thermal wooly tights. Whilst most people are wallowing about the evenings drawing in, the dark afternoons, I love the excitement that autumn and winter bring. The Christmas decorations are slowly but surely filtering in, and I have to say it is totally my favourite time of the year. I love the dark nights, […]

Time out, time out!

Auto response: Out of office I'm sorry I'm currently away from my desk at the moment. I'm enjoying autumn sun, spending time with my family and filling my mind with creativity. I value your email, and your request is really important to me, however I'm not going to respond until my return, because I'm recharging my batteries. It will mean I'm at my best when I do respond. Normal service will resume on Monday Best wishes Emma  So after stumbling across this rather brilliant quote by the equally rather brilliant Sylvia Plath I just had to share some thoughts on […]
