We are pounding the London streets with our arms filled with glorious summer flower bouquets, delivering orders to some very lucky people! Hydrangeas, English peonies and sweet peas, cornflowers, scented stocks..they are all in season now, at their best and beautiful as ever. Don’t miss out…they are only available for a short time!
Happy New year and all good wishes for what the year ahead may bring…
The sun is shining and spring cut flowers are in abundance, beautiful scented narcissi, hyacinths, ranunculas, anemones and lilac, displaying cheerful promise for what lies ahead for 2017.
Pleased to say we have had a good start, with many bouquet London flower deliveries. Lots of people sending ‘Thank you’ flowers and many celebrating January birthdays. The favourite at the moment is our Seasonal hand tied bouquet and our planted baskets of spring bulbs. Enquiries also already being made for wedding flowers, private dinner party flowers and London Design week which is taking place in March. A good time to plan and book those special dates in the diary. Not forgetting British flower week! The week long celebration of British flowers and foliages, go see http://www.britishflowerweek.com
The beginning of March will see a big change for The New Covent Garden Flower Market, as it moves to new premises…sad to have to say good bye to the old market – have lots of memories since my childhood, accompanying my father during school holidays and giving a helping hand, happy times! I wish everyone the best of luck with move. For updates visit http://www.newcoventgardenmarket.com
Planted baskets start from £20.00 -Look lovely sitting in a kitchen window..
Bouquets can be made to any budget, recommend a starting price from £ 45.00. Not many better ways than this, to make a special gift of thanks!
We have been busy preparing for Thanks Giving and Christmas…orders for advent rings and door wreaths are now being taken.
All our advent rings and door wreaths are lovingly made to order and bespoke. We make each wreath ourselves at the studio, from the mossing of the wire frames to the wiring of all the pine, fruits, cones…etc.
Choose from a wide selection of decoration – simply plain pine or decorated with fresh red berries, cones, dried fruits, eucalyptus pods, lotus heads, lichen branches, cinnamon sticks, ribbons or no ribbon, fixed foliages, mixed pines…..the choice is here.
If you are not of fan of traditional pine, we also make olive wreaths, mixed foliage wreaths, eucalyptus wreaths, and we even made a Brussel sprout wreath last year by special request!
Pleased to say that we have some new cards in stock by designers Eloise Hall, Anna Wright and Catherine Kleeli, to add to our existing wonderful selection of gift cards. We hope you like them!
Handmade cards by Hannah Shelbourne, Elena Deshmukh are still available.
Not long back to work after the summer holidays and we had our first wedding of the season – A small family service at Christchurch, Kensington then to follow a celebratory reception at the Lanesborough Hotel, Knightsbridge.
It was a fresh, all white floral theme celebrating the last days of summer with white hydrangeas, scented freesia, avalanche roses, spray roses and phlox throughout, from the church displays, the bridal flowers to the table arrangements for the wedding breakfast.
Hello and a warm welcome to the new Kensingtonflowers website!
We are so happy about the changes we’ve made and hope you enjoy browsing through our updated online shop. We now offer more choices of bouquets, arrangements and plants to choose from – you can now even order flowers for a whole year, as a very special gift to a friend or loved one. Here at the shop, we often get requests from clients who wish to send flowers on a regular basis, usually once a month, and so we thought it made sense to have this service available to order on our website…Hope you like it!
You can now order from us whilst on the move too from your mobiles, pay by paypal, have direct links to our social media pages…making it even easier to get in touch with us. All very exciting!
Calendar flowers – order flowers for a month, 3 months, 6 months or a year!
It is now just over a year since we’ve moved premises to our flower studio in Victoria Grove, and can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. I hope you feel the spirit of the shop through our new website and I’ll endeavour to keep you updated with our news and activities on this blog. In the meantime, you may wish to take a look at my mini interview with Michelle at Almost essential //www.almostessential.com/flowers-latest-trends-and-tips/
We will shortly be posting our first article, please check back soon.
