We had a customer who needed help as she had a dilemma, being pressured into having a bouquet but the bride is not very keen on flowers. She’s not a girly girl even thou she would be wearing a traditional wedding dress, she felt that flowers where not for her. We have a large range of […]

Along with getting in touch with our more wintry side, the HQ at Sarah’s Flowers have been getting all sparkly! Maybe we’ve been over-doing it by watching too much Strictly (addictive viewing right?) or maybe it’s because Christmas is getting closer, but all in all, we have been hooked on all things spangly and have […]
