Comments Off on Valentine’s Day – a brief history
Valentine’s Day – also known as Saint Valentines Day, is celebrated with the exchange of cards, chocolate, gifts and flowers – but do you know where this tradition began?
It’s said, an early Christian bishop named Valentine was executed on 14 February for performing illegal marriage ceremonies and left a farewell love message signed ‘from your Valentine’!
References to Valentine’s Day can also be found in ancient Roman and Greek Mythology, and the rose was associated with Venus or Aphrodite – the goddess of love.
Today, the red rose is considered most romantic and symbolises love, but pink and orange flowers are also popular gifts.

Comments Off on White Roses
Roses are in my top three favourite flower varieties and I just never get tired of working with them. They of course are also a favourite of many of our customers and are always in high demand…This arrangement of white roses in a glass cube vase is a recent addition to our online range and I love the simplicity of its design and how it showcases the beauty of the rose bloom. This presentation would also make elegant table centres for a wedding or function.
