I don't do Blogs..

I don't do blogs.
I should do blogs but I never seem to have the time. No that's a lie, it's because I never know where to start and so put it off for another day. So I thought as everything is changing in our lovely little floristry business that now would be a good time to let you know what's happening and why we are doing it now.
Having run the shop in Knutsford for the past 7 years, and before that in Bridgettes in Levenshulme Manchester for 25years! We certainly know a bit about flowers. We also know that even though the business was getting busier year on year we couldn't concentrate on all the different aspects involved in the day to day running of the shop, the contract work, the weddings and brides, marketing, buying and so much more, we had to make a choice.
Do we stay as we are running around like headless chickens or do we look at what we do best. This meant that as the contract and wedding side of the business was doing so well that this is the areas we want to concentrate on. We have loved having the shop but felt that we can do much more for our customers and clients by not having the high street presence. We can do all the arty stuff along with providing a more personal but professional service to our brides and corporate clients.
We will still be delivering our beautiful flowers for our customers (why not take a look at some of our bouquets on our 'shop online' page here). Wedding and event work along with supplying regulars displays for hotels and businesses will be our core business.
So over the next few weeks apart from downsizing, setting up the consultation room, the workshop, this new website, helping our brides, and looking after our business friends! Phew! I think we'll still be running headless around Knutsford. I know though that we'll be a much better, more organised florist business and we can't wait for the change.
