So we are already half way through the year! Where has the last six months gone? After a busy May we seem to have had an even busier June if thats even possible.
UK Florist of The Year 2016
On Thursday 16th June we went to the NEC in Birmingham to Garden’s world and The Good Food show. This was to take part in the UK florist of the year competition heats, with the final taking place at the RHS Tatton park flower show. We were delighted to take part in this competition and had a fantastic day out. Emily received some really high scores and excellent feedback for her three designs.
Beaufort Polo Club Event Flowers
The weekend of 18th June we made a massive 27 vases of beautiful pastel coloured ‘just picked’ looking flowers flowers and a large urn arrangement for the Beaufort Polo Event held in Westonbirt. We were honoured to be asked to provide flowers for this event which has quite a high presence in our area.
It was Emily founder of Persephone Violet’s birthday on the 23rd June so we were closed for a few days in order to celebrate. What a lovely time Emily had in Edinburgh with her mum and sister – a well deserved break from the busy wedding season and other exciting opportunities we have had of late. You may have even hear Emily’s mum Lisa on BBC2’s radio show talking about emily ‘jolly good fellow’ of 23rd June. If you missed it listen back here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07fl2c3 fast forward to one hour twenty minutes for the ‘Jolly good fellow’ bit, check it out quick because it will soon be gone! Emily was incredibly grateful to her mum for this shout out not only for her but also Persephone Violet as well. Lisa (Emily’s mum) is hugely supportive of Emily and all her wonderful achievements Persephone Violet being one of them.
