Gift bouquets - the perfect gift

My work as a wedding and gift florist brings me into contact with interesting people from all walks of life. No two floristry commissions are the same, but I can’t honestly say that I’m never asked the same question twice, because some questions crop up time and time again. One of the most popular, and one which I’d like to address here is: is it really a good idea to give flowers as a gift?

Overcoming creative block

Designing wedding flowers is a creative line of work. You might even call it a vocation. Not everyone can do it, and I count myself very lucky that I’m not one of those people who sees the world purely in terms of facts and figures. In an artistic profession, though, how do you stay creative? It’s a question posed by artists of all kinds, so I’d like to share my thoughts on it here.
