Welcome to our newbies…

Whilst you lot have been ‘oohing and awwing’ over the Olympics, here at HQ we have been putting our pedal to the metal and putting together some new, and dare I say it, amazing new items for you all to enjoy. 

As well as the amazing brooch bouquets that we featured on the blog we have been coming with many more ingenious ideas to make your wedding bouquets even more special than ever before – armed with copious amounts of tea and a smattering of cake (for sustenance of course) we’ve been brainstorming like never before, in fact we think we should win a gold medal for this alone, and we are now really happy to show you the latest additions to our Sarah’s Flowers family:

 

The handmade Bead and Pearl bouquets  

Gone are the flowers being the centre of attention, this time we have created a bouquet that is both delicate and show stopping all at the same time. Both of these bouquets are made with ivory pearls, white beading and crystals – I keep finding myself taking a double look everytime I see these bouquets. They are not only really beautiful, they also manage to look innovative but we worked hard to still make them classic looking. We have two in the range at the moment, with the smaller priced at £95 and the larger bouquet priced at £195 these will make a great addition to the more vintage, classical themed wedding and I can ensure you that these will be talking points!

The Exquisite range: the Pearl and Crystal loops

 

This range is brand spanking new and we can barely contain ourselves! We have taken our normal bouquets and ramped the style up by thousands! A larger domed shaped bouquet is literally filled to the brim with loveliness: Cerise open Isabel roses with a shimmering glass diamante, claret/purple peonies, dusky lilac gerbera’s, velvet deep red roses, peridot green hydrangea and ivory trachelium all finished off with a beautiful ribboned organza handle with matching bow and handmade loops of ivory pearls and crystals. This is the only bouquet you need right now, this is the gold to our collection.

The Bridesmaid’s turn

 

We just had to show you this absolutely beautiful bouquet which is for the Bridesmaid’s this time. Catching your eyes first is the zingy green of this small bouquet, it has a real air of ‘fresh’ ideal for the younger bridesmaids, this is a real modern take on a classic. With ivory classic roses, peridot green hydrangeas and finishing off with the feminine pink silk orchids. The handle is silk wrapped with matching bow and overall this bouquet is a really nice addition to our collection and allows the Bridesmaids to have a little something different on the special day.

We hope you like our new bouquets as much as we do. Here at Sarah’s Flowers we really do relish the opportunity to hear your thoughts or feedback, so how about telling us what you’d like to see more of and why. Armed with more cake I’m sure we can come up with some stunners!

The Wedding Favour that does you a favour…

There are just so many things to think of when planning a wedding, so much planning, thinking, idea generating and that’s not to mention, budgeting and unless you’re as rich as J-Lo a wedding planner is not always an option – I don’t know about you, but blimy, I’m exhausted just thinking about it, but one way you can save yourself some serious stress levels is by doing a bit of DIY, and not of the ‘putting together a wardrobe’ kind.

It is becoming more and more popular for the couple in question to be getting well and truly stuck into the wedding planning and doing things themselves. From creating decorations to handmade invites, it has never been more acceptable than to give your wedding a more of a handmade touch and a great place to start is the wedding favour.

Traditionally given as a sign of gratitude, the wedding favour is a great place to start at attempting to make your wedding more homemade. Now for the ideas: some people go down more traditional gifts: printed wrapper sweets or a mini bottle of bubbles but the beauty of doing it yourself is you can push the boundaries of your ideas – here at Sarah’s Flowers HQ we quite often have a quick-fire round of ideas, and here are some for you:

How about filling a small matchbox with a mix of flower seeds from all the places that the Bride and Groom have visited. All you need is some plain matchboxes and get them printed with the names of places – simple but very effective…

Everyone loves Popcorn right!? Well how about getting some Popcorn containers with the couples name and fill with yummy sweet or salted popcorn…

Individual Rosemary plants. These plants are really easy to grow to get you started and all you need is to start some little shoots, repot them, label and leave for the guests. Why Rosemary? Well it is a sign of fidelity – perfect for a wedding right?

Collect some flat pebbles or stones and decorate them with people’s names and use as name cards, then turn them over and put an individual message on each one for your guests to keep…

How about a musical favour? Try recording some the couple’s favourite songs and putting them onto a cd, label them up and gift them. This is really simple but oh so personable…

Wedding Favour Blog

Grab some old jam jars – wash them out, grab some glass paint marker pens, decorate the jars: include your guest’s names and fill with some handpicked flowers. Your guest can then take them home and re-use the jars at a later date…

The list is endless when it comes to creating your own wedding favours and they really do not have to cost the world – the key is in the planning and the earlier the better, leading you more time to concentrate on getting excited!

At HQ we have a great range of reduced items in our sale section which can be used in making wedding favours, such as small craft pegs or our red aluminium craft wire.
