We LOVE a wedding here at The Flower Boutique and a Royal wedding is Extra Exciting!!!
We've created beautiful, seasonal bouquets in red, white and blue for the weekend. Available to order online or pick up from the shop
For those not as obsessed with these things as me, every year Pantone announce a colour that they predict will be THE colour of the year, last year was all about green, this year it's Ultraviolet.
Now, here at the Flower Boutique, I like to think we are a bit ahead of the game, so as soon as I saw the colour, my mind flew back to the Summer (very welcome now it's a balmy 8 degrees in the shop!) and to Rachel and James's wedding, which was all about the colour purple.
I mixed Scabious, Stocks, Lisianthus and Blueberry Roses, with Calla's and lots of foliage for a loose and garden style feel, and finished the bouquets off with lots of trailing tonal ribbon.
They also had a Chuppa, which was built by Rachel's Dad, and proved to be a lovely focal point not only for the ceremony, but for the dancing in the evening.
It was so much fun to do this wedding, and I am looking forward to many more next year.
Congratulations Rachel and James!
While Lisa was busy creating a beautiful shower bouquet for her Bride and old school friend Danni, I was busy flowering for Rosie and Sebastian, who got married at Stoke Place. 2 Vans, 2 strong men and 2 tired florists later, it was all finished and we were back at the shop and on to the next!
A few weeks later an email dropped into my inbox and Rosie had sent over her professional photos, with a lovely thank you as well. I have to say it was my absolute pleasure to design their wedding flowers, her brief was scented Roses (for Rosie) and all thinks pink and pretty. I picked the best of the summer, the first Dahlias, Hydrangeas, Stocks, Astilbe, Astrantia and the most ruffly English Lisianthus I’ve ever seen. The result smelled amazing.
It was such a pleasure to be part of their day.

It may be cold but spring has definitely arrived here! The shop is full of baskets and planters bursting with hyacinths, daffodils and muscari.... and the smell is incredible!
Commonly called Hyacinths, these are bulbous flowering plants from a small genus of Hyacinthus. The origins of this name comes from a Greek mythological figure 'Hyakinthos'. It is said that Hyakinthos and Apollo were taking turns throwing a discus. To impress Apollo, he ran to catch it but was struck by the discus as it fell to the ground and died. Apollo did not allow Hades (God of the Dead and Riches) to claim the youth, instead he made a flower, a hyacinth, from the spilled blood.
Caring for your hyacinth plant
To get the most enjoyment from your hyacinth plants in the home, place them in the coolest location possible. To ensure the soil stays compact and supportive, do not give it much water. For outside planting they are happy in the shade or sun, just make sure the roots don't dry out. Plant food is not necessary as they contain all the nutrition they need in the bulb.
We have bouquets of blue or white hyacinths available on the webshop.
We are well and truly in full Christmas mode in the shop! Here's a brief update on what we're up to:
Our first festive workshop happened on Tuesday with 7 ladies creating beautiful door wreaths. There was glitter everywhere! It's always amazing to see the different designs they come up with considering they all have the same festive items to choose from. Here are some photos from the night:
This Saturday is 'Small Business Saturday' in Little Chalfont. All the independent shops are offering special deals including us. After last years success we have decided to repeat our 20% off all gifts from 9am until 5:30pm. We are fully stocked with great gifts from Parlane, Sia and Stoneglow so if you are still in need of Christmas presents here is a great incentive to pop in and get a bargain! Here are some examples of the gifts on special offer:
We also have the first of our December weddings on Saturday, they are taking full advantage of the season and have gone for warm reds, whites and lush foliage - pictures to follow shortly!
There is still time to order your door wreaths and candle arrangements which are all made from scratch in the shop. Colours range from gold, silver, green, natural and ice blue while the style can either be traditional or modern.
We hope to see or hear from you soon!
