    Last Wednesday we hosted an evening of Fresh Flower Gin Botanicals for Brian House Children's Hospice so far our total raised stands at £1700  (We were aiming for £2k) if you would like to make a donation here's the link to our Just Giving Page. Brian House is an amazing place which not only serves our community but their love and care stretch up as far as Lancaster, they care for some very poorly children and offer support to their families, it really is a huge privilege and is in fact humbling  to be able to offer them our support. We have a number of events planned all designed to raise funds for this massively worthy cause, so if you missed out on this one perhaps you could sponsor our team running in the Windmill 10K, or you could sign up for our FD Bake Off Extravaganza 2017 on 29th November or join in one of our Wreath Making & Garland Work Shops in December Just email me for more information
    As with all of the fund raising we do, we had a huge amount of help from loads of our friends, we really couldn't do it without them, we are always grateful but this particular event was ambitious even by our FD Events Team's standards and 'thank you' never really seems enough!!! but here goes...
    Our amazing team; 
    Our Vicky has been with me from the start and together we've been doing these fund raising events for almost 30 years (28 years to be exact), never has a year gone by in all of that time that we haven't 'done' something for charity and there have been so many times over the years when I have asked her to go above and beyond in pursuit of 'dosh' for a worthy cause, she has always without exception 'stepped up to the plate' and for that, her organisation, hard work, diligence & her continued loyalty I am immensely grateful.
    Our Shirl, for over 20 years she's provided a level head, kept our standards incredibly high, never questioned my ridiculous suggestions and accepted the ensuing chaos with dignity, this last week was no exception and I feel calmer knowing she's looking after the floristry, designs and our creativity.
    Our Chloe, with just less than 2 years of FD service under her belt, we all feel she's been with us forever, she quietly and calmly 'gets on with it' turns her hand to everything and anything, including Gin pouring, flower demonstrating, running the 10K and baking cakes, she's becoming the most beautiful florist too and we all feel very proud of her progress.
    If I'm absolutely honest the lynch pin to it all is of course my better half Jason, running up to one of these events, he makes sure I sleep, I eat, I keep laughing, he takes away my anxiety and gives me the confidence to believe we can do it!!! (He also drives me a little crazy too with the whole Health and Safety & Risk Assessment stuff but someones got to do it!!!)
    We are a team and that's a hugely important and very special thing, we respect one another, we love working, playing and creating together!!!
    I couldn't do this without them FACT!!!! xxxxxxxx
    Then there are the great folks that join us from time to time and those who always seem to be in our corner constantly, so firstly a new comer to the FD family Seb Heeley from Manchester Gin, we needed a Gin 'expert' I wrote to over 40 Gin distilleries asking for a 'Speaker', I didn't get a single reply (Except from Bloom who said they were too busy to answer at the moment and someone would get back to me in due time, I'm still waiting 5 months later) then our Chloe went to the Manchester Gin festival and found herself at a MG Gin tasting, she sent me a text saying she'd found our man!!! I emailed him and he replied!!! a minor miracle I thought!! but it was even better than that, he did the most exceptional and inspiring talk, he generously discounted his Gin and provided us with tasting samples and a raffle prize and bought a huge number of raffle tickets too!! we really couldn't have asked for more, we are all now Manchester Gin Devotees!!

    For those of you who have visited us here at FD HQ you'll know this space is usually full to bursting with flower equipment, so our first task was to clear the space, we are ridiculously lucky to have amazing neighbours, Pete and the team from Reax helped us to move all of our 'stuff' into their warehouse, I know I say this a lot but we couldn't have done it without them!!!xxx
    Our wonderful friends Sue, Paul, Kristina, Natalie, Doug & Victoria at Ribby Hall provided us with the tables and table cloths, the chairs arrived courtesy of  Dawn and the team at Creative Cover Hire, we couldn't have done it without them!!! xx
     Our amazing lights and Mirror Balls were by our good buddies Megan & Daz from Typical Type, we couldn't have done it without them!!!xx
     Our dearest friends Shannon, Orrin, Lucy & Amelia from Bite Club who put on the very best Gin friendly food ever, they really did make the evening!!!! There is no doubt in my mind that we honestly couldn't have done it without them!!!xxxxx
    Don't miss Bite Club's next event this Friday at a top secret location their Halloween spectacular there are few tickets available, I think xxx
    Thank you to the amazing James Jebson Photography who provided all of these wonderful images.

     The absolutely incredible wedding singer Paul Guard who not only entertained us with his Gin Palace Jazz Tunes but provided all of the staging, sound and up lighting, we couldn't have done it without him xxxx

     The brilliant Gary Mills DJ and Host who really helps us to put together a coordinated performance and has our backs time and time again, we really couldn't do this without him.

     The super magical Darren Robinson wedding magician who brings magic to all our events
     The team from Twelve who provided such fabulous raffle prizes and all of the glasses

    Matthew from Nefarious administering last minute hair and microphone assistance, they also provided a great raffle prize
    Bite Club's Cucumber Cups the perfect Gin accompanyment

     Janet Atkins from Brian House giving everyone an insight into the daily running and costings of this wonderful place

    Massive thank you's to Roland & Lisa from RT Productions and Wedding Films for his beautiful movie of the event
    It really is a joy to spend an evening such as this surrounded by our FD friends & 'family', some are brand new, Brides & Grooms from recent weddings and future weddings, others have been around us for more than 25 years supporting us, giving up their time, their hard earned pennies to support the charities we hold most dear, I will always be grateful to them, these folks are the one's that make our annual endeavours work, I know I've said it a few times already but we honestly couldn't do it without them!!!xxxxxx
     Seb Heeley doing his Gin thing...

    Today we were over at Browsholme Hall & Tithe Barn for their Open Day, we'd dressed the dining tables and brought along a few bridal bouquets. Our designs today were all created from Autumnal materials, a fabulous collection of rich vibrant flowers, berries, autumn foliages and Pumpkins.
     This really is a very special wedding venue, Browsholme Hall looks perfect with any colour and absolutely any theme but I always think seasonal designs reflect the setting the best.
    Our central design was a hugely tall extravagant design in shades of deep plum, ivory and mauve with a vast array of white pumpkins at the base, loads of suspended candles in glass orbs were hanging from the fresh flowers illuminating the table beautifully

     We'd arranged a couple of pedestal designs around the room just to show how successfully table designs can be transformed into Church pedestals or ceremony dressings

     The Top table looked wonderful dressed with a voluptuous design featuring fresh Phalaenopsis Orchids, Hydrangeas, Roses and Snowberry
     One of our  magical lanterns was dressed with blush pink Sweet Avalanche Roses, Orchids, Freesia, Arabicum, Pink Peppercorns and Succulents creating the perfect table centre

     The perfect design for a Halloween wedding day

     We'd brought along a collection of fresh wedding bouquets and boutonnieres for people to try and also an example of one of our Mood Boards from a wedding at Browsholme Hall back in the summer, here's a link to wedding featured on the mood board

    I am at a loss for words at how fabulous this couple are, we have really enjoyed our meetings with the lovely Kym aka 'Dory'& the equally lovely Lee, we have talked about loads of things not least their happy memories of weddings they've been to (some where we had created the flowers) and just how important friends and family are, we arranged to meet up again to talk through their mood board and see how their plans had developed...
    Their beautiful mood board with loads of important details, Kym had found a brilliant idea to utilise the beautiful images they had of weddings of their loved ones, they were incorporated in the table designs inside jars and vases, an idea we could bring to life!!!
    We'd created a set of sample designs for the two of them to see and discuss, we made a Wedding Bouquet, a Boutonniere and some table designs.
    Their colour scheme was in a gentle pastel palette using soft pinks and pale greens with some very well placed Forget Me Nots & Love in the Mist to bring in the pale blue shades

    We included our suggestion for using the photographs
    Our super tall Flower Bomb
    A suggestion for the top table design
    Before we knew it their big day was here and Jason headed off to the wonderful Mitton Hall to present the box of Bridal Bouquets to our Beautiful Bride Kym
    Jason showed our beautiful Bride how to carry her bouquet perfectly
    Downstairs in the party room at Mitton Hall the scene was set for their ceremony
    The two Flower Design Flower Bombs were stood just behind the Registrars table like Kym & Lee's Guardian Angels framing the ceremony perfectly
    Both Registrars tables were dressed with our voluptuous 'Hanging Garden' Top Table design, created to reflect the glorious countryside just outside the windows
    The two pedestal designs were placed on our large garden style urns and included fresh Hydrangeas, Peonies, Roses, fragrant Stocks, pale blue Delphiniums and Love in the Mist

    The wedding cake looked beautiful dressed simply with an elegant garland of fresh flowers

    Kym's super handsome Bride Groom Lee his look completed by a luxurious Boutonniere
    Lee's Boutonniere was attached with a 'Grape Soda' Pin

    The lovely Lesley Anne from Mitton Hall always makes sure our Bride's and Groom's have the very best of days
    Kym's gorgeous Bridesmaid's and her super glamorous Mum Pamela were all assembled ready for the procession over to the Ceremony
    The Bridesmaid's were all wearing blush pink gowns and carried heavenly bouquets in mixed pastel shades

    The Bridesmaid's bouquets included a collection of dainty flowers including Freesia, Sweet Peas, Forget Me Nots, Love in the Mist, Chamomile, Roses, Viburnum Opulus and Alchemilla Mollis

    Our super gorgeous Bride Kym really did look heavenly as she walked across to the ceremony at Mitton Hall with her super proud Dad Darren
    It was all getting very emotional...
    In the end everyone was crying, 'Tears of Joy' of course!!! xxx
    There was a lot of laughter too!!!xxx

    Could a signing of the Register look anymore perfect than this does at Mitton Hall

    Massive & Ginormous Congratulations to Kym & Lee from all of the team here at Flower Design Events

    Love this beautiful bouquet of Roses, Sweet Peas, Lissianthus, Freesia,  Love in the Mist, Forget Me Nots, Viburnum Opulus, Alchemilla Mollis, Chamomile Daisies and Eucalyptus with trails of satin ivory ribbon

    What a truly gorgeous family

    Inside the party room at Mitton Hall a transformation had taken place, it was dressed now for a luxurious wedding reception, some of the tables in the taller part of the room were dressed with huge Flower Bombs on tall column vases, illuminated with suspended tea light orbs and surrounded by Kym & Lee's black and white family wedding photos in small glass column vases

    The full length of the Top Table was swagged with our magnificent Hanging Gardens Top Table design, I always love the positioning of the top table over at Mitton Hall it looks so majestic

    The images in the glass column vases worked brilliantly
    We provided vases for the Bridal Bouquets to sit in keeping them fresh and beautiful

    On some of the tables had collections of glass column vases some with fresh flowers, some with floating candles and others with wedding images inside them all sat on our large Mirrors

    Our work here was done it was time to leave the party in full swing, many thanks to Kym & Lee for choosing Flower Design Events to create flowers for their glorious Mitton Hall wedding day xxxx

    It really is a huge pleasure to share these stunning images by the brilliant photographer Tim Emmerton, we were lucky enough to be working with him on Caroline & Steven's breathtakingly atmospheric wedding over at Browsholme Hall & Tithe Barn
    I'd created a luscious wedding bouquet in Caroline & Steven's chosen colour palette of rich and dark; Clarets, Burgundy, nut browns, auburns and nude tones, we'd introduced a whole host of seasonal texture, with glossy berries, velvety Roses, frothy Dahlias, fleshy Succulents and silky Calla Lilies framed by shiny Autumn leaves...

    The Bridesmaid's bouquets were smaller versions with more of the paler shades to contrast with their deep claret gowns
    It's so lovely to see  and share Tim Emmerton's exquisite work
