Looking forward to 2016

The New Year has arrived and before we jump into this year’s plan we glance back over a busy 2015 where we have enjoyed preparing flowers as much as ever. David excelled in his ‘logistics’ role packing and taking flowers north, south, east and west. One of our Brides took her flowers with her to […]
