A bit later than planned but welcome to our latest blog. Can you believe it’s June already? We have been very busy so we have lots to tell you about: workshops, birthday parties, Balloon Bank, weddings, and coming soon!
To start, we have had an amazing response to ‘Upstairs at the Flower Bank’. The feedback from people who have attended the workshops has really confirmed to us that sharing Upstairs with you all has been so worth the work it to get it to where it is today.
We have had responses such as ‘I’ve had such good fun’, ‘perfect Me-time’, ‘this is ideal for relieving stress from other parts of my life’ and ‘for the cost of the workshop, you get extremely good value for money’ – which is all really encouraging at the start of adding a new string to our bow. Here is a picture, which was posted to our Facebook page, from a lady who joined us last week for one of our Dutch Masterpiece workshops and we’re sure you’ll agree with us that she created a beautiful display of flowers for her home.
For all you social media followers, we are currently holding a competition for the chance to win a £50 workshop voucher if you leave us a review about your Flower Bank experiences. You can enter up to three times if you leave a review on the website, google and Facebook! Like our recent winner Rachel, you can hold onto your voucher until we announce our christmas workshops – watch this space – or you could share the voucher between yourself and a friend. We wish you all the very best of luck with this.
Tying into ‘Upstairs’, we hosted our very first children’s birthday party last month. They all created a beautiful cupcake design from flowers and foliage. As you can imagine, their favourite part of the party was the part where they got to add the flower-friendly glue and glitter to their flowers! We are working closely with Anthea and Debs from the Hornby Tea Rooms, who provide our delicious afternoon teas (and cakes for our workshops!). Click here for a few memories.
Balloon Bank now has it’s own Facebook and Instagram pages. If you don’t already follow us, please give us a tick. Not only do we do single balloons (like many of you will have seen at Wray Fair on the May Bank Holiday Monday) we also dress venues for your special occasions. Here are the links if you need them:
We’ve had some lovely brides so far this season all with their own individual designs: Charlotte O, Charlotte G, Clare & Alexandra. Through our bespoke wedding package service, we have created some beautiful floral designs for these blushing brides and their parties. Why not take a look at our wedding portfolio?
If you are getting married this year or 2020, please get in touch by clicking here. We have something exciting in the pipeline for Autumn 2019, which we will be able to share with you all very soon.
As well as our up-coming wedding event, we will be advertising our Autumn/Winter/Christmas workshops that we will be hosting ‘Upstairs’. It will be here before we know it! Watch this space and our social media pages to find out more…
