• I would like to thank you for your contributions and dedication to the Centenary Event for Her Majesty The Queen. The flowers were wonderful works of art and truly breathtaking. The feedback across the board from all our guests praises the showpiece floral displays & what could be nicer than to see your posy in ‘Hello’ magazine.

  • Thank you so much for doing mum’s flowers. They were all lovely and got so many compliments! My ‘Blanket’  was very delicate and really suited the wicker coffin. Venetta’s heart was beautiful and Chris’s  ‘NAN’ also raised compliments. It was lovely to have them done by you and I’m really grateful.

  • Thank you all for making our house look so beautiful, elegant and glamorous for Christmas!

    Everywhere we look is a fest for the eyes and perfect in every way

  • Thank you very much for the fantastic work you did with our wedding flowers – they looked amazing and many of our guests commented on their original design. I shall definitely recommend you to my friend if they ever require a florist.

    Many thanks again
  • Thank you so much for the wonderful and creative work on the bouquet and buttonholes. We received so many compliments on both! You truly took my vision and made it into reality.

    We had such a lovely day and it went just as planned!
