St Georges Day at ISIS Flowers

Today we celebrated our very first St Georges Day at ISIS Flowers.

There was a lot of prep work to be done, yes that is Claire hiding behind the balloons.

We decided to take no chances and inflated over 100 red & white balloons to give to the children at the local junior school Hayes Primary on their way home from school.

We were ambushed and the balloons were gone in minutes, we then made a mad dash into the store to hide, as we ran out of balloons and there were still more children walking down the road.

This balloon giving away is serious business here in Hayes.

200 Balloons next time.

Happy St Georges Day to everyone

The London Golf Club Wedding Fair

For our stand at the London Golf Club Wedding Fair we decided that we were going to go for a cool classic white theme for our flowers.

We used ranunculus roses, spray roses, hydrangeas, stocks, hellebore's, bouvardia, avalanche roses, double lisianthus, white
tulips and calla lily's to make a selection of table centre pieces, pedestal arrangments and hand tied bouquets and some very elegant buttonholes and corsages.

We also launched our new range of scented candles that can be used with flowers for ceremony table or table centre pieces.

The candles are exclusive to us from Spain and are available in various sizes both circular and square.

Unfortunately we forgot our camera but on the stand opposit to us was the lovely fellow exhibitor Charlie Round -Turner who quickly assisted us and took some photographs for us. Charlie is a wedding photographer and you can view some of his excellent work at

We would love for you to come and visit us at our next weddding fair at Oakley House in Bromley on Sunday16th May 2010

Sarah & Peter

It was a very cold but bright sunny December Saturday when Sarah & Peter got married!

Everyone had a great day, yes it was freezing, yes there was snow on the ground, lots of it but that did not stop the Bride & Groom and all of the Guests having the best time and so much fun, with the toffee vodka shots flowing no one really noticed the cold!

Sarah was being taken to Church in a Blue Rolls Royce but before that could happen we had to clear not just the drive but the whole road up to the main road so that the car could make it to the house and this was done with the help of Mum & Dad's fabulous neighbours.

Once safely in the car it was just a short drive to the church were Sarah & Peter were married among their family and close friends.

It was then time for the photographs and this proved to be slightly tricky in high heels and 4 inches of snow, but with a steadying hand from her new husband, Sarah managed to stay on two feet at all times and with the promise of warming drinks back home everyone braved the cold and joined in the photo shoot.

Back at home we had the marquee ready and the heating on full blast, and the champagne was literally on ice!

We greeted the Guests with trays of Vodka Shots and the steaming hot food buffet was served to warm everyone up!

There was a very special moment during the cake cutting when it was revealed that the Groom had insisted on making the Wedding Cake as his contribution to the Wedding Plans.

It was very beautifully decorated with the month of December in mind with a cute Mr & Mrs Snowman.

It tasted good as well!
