Flora’s Garden Owner Harriet Says:

HarrietAt Flora’s Garden it is our aim to provide dramatic floral decoration for all styles of Weddings and Events. Where one person sees a simple bunch of flowers I see nature’s art, and I believe my role is to present such art in the most original and eye-catching way.

I am a big follower of the fashion world and with this passion in mind Flora’s Garden aims to provide ‘fashionable flowers’. I do this in many ways – perhaps in shape or colour, and also by giving you a choice of embellishments for your flowers such
as bows, feathers, jewels, buttons, brooches, beading and ribbon. The concept of Flora’s Garden will provide you with a floral arrangement bursting with creativity!

Testimonials

“I’ve never received bouquets like it from the high street florists! So uniquely creative!”
Sarah Haslewood, London

“I was overwhelmed by the ease of ordering from Flora’s Garden. I placed an order on Sunday evening and they were delivered for free the next day and looking beautiful. I ordered a bouquet for my Mum, I had a set budget and had explained what colours she liked. The first thing my Mum did when she received the flowers was ring me to say ‘I have just had the most beautiful flowers delivered!’ If you are looking for a creative florist, something different, tailored and unique then Flora’s Garden is number one in my book.”
Laura Corcoran, Northampton

“My first experience of flowers by Harriet Creedy of Flora’s Garden is the beginning of a beautiful floral relationship. I adore flowers, and get much pleasure from sending flowers to my family and friends.

This year I was embarking on a very emotional personal journey as my family planned to scatter my Nan’s ashes on what would have been her 94th birthday, over 200 miles away. As this would be my final time to give my Nan birthday flowers I knew I wanted something feminine and beautiful, and I knew my budget. Harriet rose to my challenge, asking questions about my Nan’s favourite flowers and colours. I shared with Harriet that my Nan’s favourite flowers were Orchids, but I didn’t believe we could use these due to their cost.

When Harriet arrived with my flowers the day before my epic journey I was overwhelmed by what she had created. With tears in my eyes I spied the most gorgeous Orchids in the most beautiful colours, and Harriet had even included the same Cymbidium Orchid that had featured in my funeral floral tribute for my Nan – I was truly lost for words, but made up for this with my tears. The Orchids were surrounded by gorgeous Tulips in beautiful shades of Pink. I also noticed the pearls that Harriet had used to secure the green foliage to the bottom of
the flower arrangement. I was also really touched that Harriet had considered the long journey ahead of the flowers and had added cellophane to the outside of the arrangement to give them added security.

I proudly escorted the flowers over 200 miles and as I laid them 2 days later they looked as fresh as the moment Harriet delivered them. My family smiled as I recalled the moment my Nan had told me that Orchids were her favourites – my Aunties all assumed that her favourites were Chrysanthemums!

I have already commissioned Harriet and Flora’s Garden for my Mum’s forthcoming 60th birthday.”

Excerpt from an interview with Harriet:

What type of service should your clients expect to get from Floras Garden?
I want my customers to be part of the design process… and each bouquet or arrangement will be bespoke and therefore entirely personal to the customer. I think it is very important to have a detailed idea who the recipient of a bouquet is; the design must please their tastes and requirements first and foremost. No matter how big or small or how much the customer wants to spend I always ask if there are any special requirements and I tailor each bouquet to match these needs. I vehemently believe everybody has the ability to be creative and to break out of the box of the traditional and ‘expected’ to some degree!

Where did the name Flora’s Garden come from?

Flora is the Roman Goddess of flowers and springtime. So I thought who would have the most beautiful garden and I guess it must be Flora!? I really wanted to create a sense of place, and for clients to feel they are entering into a different world when they enter my website.

Do you have a favourite flower you like working with and why?
There are so many it is difficult to choose…  but I think my ultimate favourite is a dahlia – hence my wrist tattoo of a purple dahlia!  I do love all shades of hygrangea too. I also enjoy working with interesting textures so I love panicum fountain, craspedia, and echinops.
