Now that Halloween is behind us, Christmas is definitely fast approaching! This is the time of year where I work less on weddings and start to focus on preparing for the busy period which is due to be busier than ever.   I launched my Christmas products last week on the website so do take a look as there’s lots to choose from with different ideas to send as festive gifts such as the traditional flower basket or the Santa flower crate! Or treat yourself to a fresh flower arrangement the centrepiece of your Christmas table.    Holly and spruce wreaths will be available from 1 st December, pre-order yours so you don’t miss out. In the mean time I’ll be super busy wiring materials in advance to be able to decorate the wreaths ready for you to buy the finished product!   This year we have two Christmas Flower Workshops Great Orton Village Hall – Sunday 9 th December 1.30-3.30pm Currock House Community Centre – Tuesday 11 th December 6.30-8.30pm Come along to decorate your very own spruce door wreath and create a festive table centrepiece. £35 per person which includes all materials to make both items plus tea, coffee...

Wedding Fayre!

20180909_11561_20180916-152251_1 Wedding Flowers
Last weekend I attended The Crown and Mitre wedding to showcase Oopsie Daisy Flowers and what I can offer for your wedding day. The hotel is such a prominent feature in the heart of the city of Carlisle, so it’s no surprise that its very popular amongst brides and grooms who are planning their wedding day. Along with lots of other amazing local suppliers, I set up my display in the grand ballroom. I like to create a mixture of floral designs to show the many different options available for your wedding flowers. Whilst every couple has a different vision for their celebration its important to show how much of an impact flowers can have in your setting. Flowers can help bring class and elegance to your wedding or they can highlight the overall theme of your big day and add some colour! A wedding fayre is a great opportunity to speak with lots of engaged couples looking for ideas for their wedding and about what type of flowers would most suit their taste and venue . The wedding flowers on display were a mixture of designs and sizes which can be adapted to your requirements and budget. If you’re planning...

Christmas Workshop

On Sunday 10 th December was Oopsie Daisy Flowers first ever workshop, despite the freezing temperatures it was a great success!   Each of the 8 lovely ladies that attended Great Orton village hall were given the opportunity to create a Christmas table centrepiece and decorate a festive door wreath.   I demonstrated to the group step by step how to place the greenery and flowers into the arrangement and although everyone’s turned out a bit different they all looked beautiful and will look great as their table centrepiece.     Before tackling the festive door wreaths, we enjoyed tea, coffee and refreshments, we especially liked the cupcakes baked by my Mam, who also helped by serving the tea and coffee.              Before decorating the spruce wreaths, the ladies had to get the hang of wiring every decoration so it could be placed securely. Once they had this technique mastered, we added sprigs of holly and berries. Next we used a variety of dried fruit, cinnamon, pine cones and a big bow. The ribbon seemed to be the biggest challenge for most.     Overall everyone had a wonderful afternoon, and it was definitely worth coming out in the...

Mothering Sunday

Carlisle Florist Mothers Day Flowers Carlisle
  Every year in spring time the majority of us will buy our mums a present to celebrate Mothers Day. Traditionally flowers are given to Mums and Grandmas but have you ever stopped to think how this tradition came to be?     Laetare Sunday (the fourth Sunday of lent) was traditionally a day of relaxation from normal Lenten rigours; a day of hope with Easter at last within sight, also servants were released from service for the day to visit their mother church (home/local church) When young people in service were given this rare day off just as the wild spring flowers were beginning to bloom, they would be collected as they waked home and given to their Mother's whilst they were home to attend church. This would become an annual custom and would eventually be what we know as Mothering Sunday/Mothers Day.     Other countries would come to adopt this practice but most European countries and the United States celebrate in May. However Great Britain has stuck to our heritage and it remains a religious holiday - which is why it changes date from year to year, unlike father's day which is always the third Sunday in June. So...

Oopsie Daisy Flowers is Relocating

Oopsie Daisy Flowers is Relocating
Some of you may have already heard that Oopsie Daisy Flowers is going to be relocating in the next week or so. Although we won't be in the shop anymore, we are certainly still in business. The reason we are relocating is due to the vast majority of orders coming online, over the phone and via Facebook with just a few coming through the shop. All orders can still be placed on our website oopsiedaisyflowers.co.uk or you can call us on 01228 317270. We now offer FREE DELIVERY on all orders for Carlisle and surrounding areas, as we now have fewer overheads. Also if you need a delivery at a specific time we will be more likely to accommodate you as we don't have the shop to keep fully staffed. Collections can still be made from our new workshop. The service we offer will be unchanged, we will still provide beautiful bouquets and arrangements with the freshest flowers with a delivery service. We love what we do and endeavour to keep all our present and new customers happy. Here at Oopsie Daisy Flowers we have become very popular for wedding flowers with a massive 34 wedding bookings so far for 2016 with lots...

Enhancing Interiors with Flowers for a Property Photo Shoot

Enhancing Interiors with Flowers for a Property Photo Shoot
I was interviewed by Debbie Whitfield www.creativepropertyshots.wordpress.com/about-me   about  how flower arrangements could be used to enhance interiors for a property photo shoot. Debbie is a professional property photographer based in Cumbria with qualifications in Interior Design, Art and Photography, so property photography brings all her interests and expertise into one vocation. Debbie's  photography can empower advertising of any property to its full potential whether a premises is for rent, resale, commerce or retail.  Could you describe how flower arrangements could be used to enhance the particularly style of a property for a property photo shoot?  A floral arrangement displayed for a photo shoot can enhance the style of the property if you choose the right flowers and display in the best way possible for that property. For example a contemporary apartment could display a modern linear display using strong bold flowers like gerberas and calla lilies to give the room that extra edge and style. Whereas a country cottage would need something completely different. Perhaps a vintage jug to display garden roses with other wild looking flowers mixed with various foliage for a natural look which will emphasise the properties surroundings.  How can flowers be used to create a focal...

5 top tips for choosing your wedding flowers

5 top tips for choosing your wedding flowers
  Seasonality – I would always recommend using blooms when they are in season. Although a lot of flowers are now available throughout the whole calendar there are still some that have seasonal restrictions. So it’s best to check which flowers will be available at the time of your wedding before you set your heart on particular bouquet. Some flowers which are usually seasonal such as peonies can be sought outside of their using blooming period, however the quality will not be same as during their peak so bear this in mind when envisioning your bouquet. Pictured below is a beautiful tulip bouquet perfect for a spring wedding.   Colour – when selecting the colours for your wedding flowers don’t be afraid to introduce different shades from your colour scheme or even introduce another colour. Often brides request the exact shade of the bridesmaids’ dresses for the flowers, however using the same colours can often end up looking quite bland. So I usually suggest using light and dark shades of a particular colour to add depth and texture to the overall look. Or introducing a different colour that will contrast against the bridesmaid’s dresses, but also compliments the overall colour scheme...
