What can I get out of a bucket of flowers? A guide for prospective brides & grooms

If you buy a bucket of seasonal flowers what do you actually get, and more importantly, how far does it go?

Well, to start with, you will receive a bucket, filled with around 70 stems of gorgeous Cumbrian grown fresh picked flowers & foliage. These will include scented stems, they will be different shapes, maybe different colours (depending on what you have requested). They will vary during the year with the seasons; this example was picked early July.

Here is what they look like in a bucket:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is what they look like spread out on the table……..

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is what you could make with them…..

To sum up; 1 bridal bouquet, 2 smaller posies, maybe for bridesmaids, 1 posy, suitable for a flower girl, and last but not least, 3 button holes. 

You could of course put these flowers together however you wish – or maybe for table arrangements, a couple of blooms in old bottles, or a couple of larger vase arrangements. 

I hope this helps your decision process! Any questions, email me on frances@clodhopperblooms.co.uk, or message me on Facebook/Instagram @clodhopperblooms

Winter Evergreens

I have a ‘thing’ for evergreen shrubs and plants. People often dismiss them as being dull, or taking up space through the warmer months that could be filled with flowers. There are so many colours though, and not all even green. They add a good …

Why Use Peat Free Compost?

Recently, while delivering flowers I got talking to a gentleman on the subject of compost. I said “well, I use compost that is peat free….” He said, “What is all the fuss about peat free anyway” (or words to that effect”). This was before my …
