I was in a rush trying get some photos of my arrangement before getting in the car and heading to Perth... yet some how I still manage to get distracted and photograph Maisy instead.. ♡♡
Monday vibes here outside my studio. As it was time to cut back the wisteria, I couldn‘t help but make a wreath. Decorated it spontanously with the last of the Dahlias and wrote up a little tutorial on how to make it. Let me know if you are interested via DM. Oh and have a gorgeous week. Sending love. ❤️🌺
Looking for somewhere cosy to visit this gloomy Monday? Come and see us at The Happy Blossoms!! Lots of beautiful freshly delivered blooms and beautiful gift ideas 💗
Autumn in a buttonhole! Congratulations C & S 💗
HOME| Buongiorno! ☀️ Ecco un’altra new entry della mini giungla della Casetta! È una pianta di origine giapponese chiamata Lychee cactus; non ha bisogno di cure particolari, solo luce e un’innaffiatura a settimana! Insomma la pianta perfetta per le persone super impegnate! Adoro il colore: sul fondo ci sono delle sfumature viola!
In between bouquets I had a little play around with the pumpkins. Love how this turned out and I will definitely do some more. I think they would look amazing a few gathered together on a long table for a gathering or a little mini one as a centre piece on small bistro tables. What do you think ? I for one am all over the flower pumpkin 😉
Whimsical, soft and light...I so often return this this beautiful boho shoot organized by @kingandbentleymakeup
when I was starting out a few years ago. Didn’t @jennyophoto
capture Abi in this vintage dress and floral crown beautifully?
• Autumnal Arch •
I loved creating this Wedding Arch for my lovely couple last weekend. The colours worked so beautifully together with the autumnal foliage. The unstructured style of it adds a lovely whimsical and romantic feel. 🍂
All the wintery feels ❄️🍂🌿
Lots of bouquets to go out today
It's our opening party tomorrow!! I am so so excited to share our shop with everyone for an evening of everything floral! If you would like to celebrate with us, come on up to The Happy Blossoms, 5-8 tomorrow evening 💗☺️

How beautiful does Lauren look on her Wedding Day? One the many very lovely Brides I’ve had the honor to create and design flowers for this year. This 📷 captured by awesome @jasonwilliamsphoto
👀 at his blog to see the story of Lauren and Will’s Wedding day at @southdownsmanor
These beauties heading out in some of our bouquets this week! Who doesn't love a protea?!💗
• Autumn you are lovely •
For Rebekah ~ who married her love on Saturday. A gorgeous bouquet of autumnal goodness. Loved creating this bouquet as there is something about this colour palette that makes me feel all warm and cosy.
And how gorgeous is Rebekah’s dress, the detail in it is just beautiful #autumnwedding
Very very excited for our launch party on Wednesday! Can't believe this week is finally here!!💐🌷🌹🌸🌻🍄
Sunday dreaming of creating this gorgeous urn with the amazing @sabinefloral
We set some kind of record this week. Most clients served? Most favorite clients and venues in a single week? Dirtiest hair (it sure looks that way in this photo)? Earliest bedtime of the year? Most dahlias used in wedding orders? Most cuts on left hand from carelessly wielding clippers? Most hilarious repair of the tractor (long story — thanks @joeymakespots
)? Best wedding venue views? Fastest consumption of post-wedding chocolate milk shake? Some of these, surely.
I do think we managed to make it look easy. Running a farm during a rather dry period, prepping to plant, and completing half a dozen wedding orders or so is complicated. It takes patience and some planning and a lot of quick judgements and moments seized. But I don’t like for it to look as complicated as it is when we show up at a venue. I want it to look easy. And I haven’t always accomplished that. But this weekend with help from @gracelefever
and this amazing little cart at @claxtonfarm
, we did a good job. Not just delivering the goods — because we always deliver — but making it look cool, like we know what we’re doing (even when we don’t sometimes). I think trying to know what you’re doing all the time leads to trouble. No one knows everything. I accept that I’m going to run up against things I don’t know about. But I know my great strength is solving problems and figuring it out and thinking fast and on the best days, making the process look good.
Early market morning treasure 🌾🙌🏻
Some pretty delicious ingredients in today’s bouquets
I am so in love with the fading pinks & Autumnal rusts at the moment. For me it just sums up this glorious warm weather we are having. Here this little foam free design I created is a mixture of seasonal blooms and foliage foraged from the hedgerows on a stroll along the South Downs. For me it is always about creating texture, depth and interest & of course using what we have around us, always seasonal.
I was in my element creating this still life yesterday, an early Autumn display with the most atmospheric backdrop @tilton_house
There is a blog post by @riverdalefarmalbany
about our workshop last weekend ♡♡ The link for it is in my bio. There are some lovely photos from our afternoon of flowering with a lovely group of ladies.
Always wanted to visit us here in Poundbury? Next Wednesday 10th of October we are having our launch party from 5-8pm! Join us for an evening of blooms and prosecco! Plus the first 30 guests will receive a posy of our flowers! We are so excited!! #thehappyblossoms
Autumn gorgeousness today with the sweetest smelling tuberose 💗
