Season’s Greetings to all my friends and followers!
This last fortnight has been frantically busy for Floral Creations St Austell. First of all, I returned from my amazing holiday in New Zealand and barely had time to recover from jetlag when Christmas was nearly upon us! Before I could unpack properly, it was time to start making up seasonal arrangements, everything from foyer displays for local hotels and restaurants, a prayer cross for the local church, to table arrangements and Christmas wreaths and decorations for family celebrations.
The Christmas tradition of bringing evergreens inside to “deck the halls with boughs of holly” goes back to pagan times, and one of my favourite things at this time of year is being creative with seasonal natural materials. I love to find new combinations of colours and textures to include alongside old favourites like holly, ivy, pine cones, and winter flowering plants.
I hope you like the one above and I’ve added a few more recent pieces to the gallery as well.
Meanwhile, 2014 has been a fantastic year for building the business, going from working out of our garage at first to setting up a fully functioning professional workshop with everything a contemporary florist requires.
I’d like to take a moment, raise a glass of seasonal tipple, and thank all my clients, old and new, big or small, for your custom. I look forward to working with you again in 2015, and wish you all a very –
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
