Hard to believe that these flowers were all destined for landfill until the Flower Bank steps in.

I love the colours in this design - phalaenopsis orchids and lilies

A gold arrangement this morning

I love the colours in this arrangement - someone described it as autumn in a bowl.

Christmas really is on the way - I spent the afternoon st Priscilla Wakefield House making this tremendous wreath

The residents made some lovely wreaths too - one of which was made from wire cost hangers.

The Flower Bank was delighted to be part of Haringey’s Expo on Friday 24 November. The Expo was a fantastic opportunity to showcase what we do and to meet other amazing organizations. The Flower Bank is thrilled to be part of Haringey’s wonderful voluntary sector.

According to the Royal London National Funeral Cost Index Report in 2017 the average cost of a funeral with a traditional burial is £4,257 and the average cost of a cremation is £3,311. Funeral prices are very high and so too are the costs of funeral flowers. The Flower Bank’s wreaths are a response to spiralling prices and hope to give some small comfort to relatives at a time of great loss and sadness.

Launching soon will be The Flower Bank's affordable wreath service. Using unwanted flowers we'll create beautiful wreaths without compromising on their quality. The Flower Bank's style is rustic and natural and responds well to the unpredictable choice of flowers and foliage that are collected from the supermarkets. Get in touch and ask for more details.

Please see The Flower Bank’s second order for a funeral wreath, created using end of code Gerberas, dianthus, roses, eucalyptus, pittosporum and gypsophila. Contact me about creating a wreath and further information on our service.

A great morning’s work with 2 young people and beautiful flowers from Morrisons. The weather was cold outside but the roses we worked with made us think it was summer!!

I’m delighted to announce that The Flower Bank has been nominated for a Community Impact Award and the award ceremony is part of Haringey’s Community Expo next Friday. The expo is at Tottenham Town Hall and starts at 11. Come down and you can see me making arrangements.

Thank you Morrisons for the gorgeous peach roses and gerberas I picked up this morning. It was a pleasure to use ornithogalum in this arrangement.

Yesterday I had great fun with Tilly and Joyce creating this wreath for their day centre Friend in Need in East Barnet. The baubles were from the North London Hospice shop in New Barnet.

I love using this crockery for my designs - the green is a gorgeous shade and the shape and size make it perfect for most designs.
