Last week at Blamey’s Florist in Harrogate was a typical busy week which we love and are grateful for. We served many online flower orders and prepared numerous beautiful bouquets and floral arrangements for delivery all over Harrogate town, Ripley, Ripon and Knaresborough.


We visited homes, offices, businesses, a crematorium and a hospital to name but a few of the locations we deliver to. Flowers were sent for a variety of special reasons mostly birthdays, to express sorrow at sad times such as for funerals, to welcome a new baby into the world and to send words of love and gratitude. We welcomed many people to our shops in Beulah Street and Leeds Road. We enjoy very much meeting our local customers for a chat and showing off our new floral creations.

The flowers we have vary from week to week and depend on the season and availability but we always endeavour to provide some beautiful long last flowers full of colour and rich in scent. We were busy also with some special arrangements for corporate work.

Ruth visited the Harrogate Exhibition Centre for Tip-ex 14 and prepared some special arrangements for the Tipper Truck Show which was on 29 - 31 May 2014. Tip-ex is the only UK event dedicated to the tipper and bulk haulage market, and attracts more than 2,000 industry professionals. There were nearly 80 exhibitors at the event and we were happy to be a part of it.

Another special event we prepared some beautiful corsages was Menwith Hill. Royal Air Force Menwith Hill or more simply RAF Menwith Hill is a Royal Air Force station near Harrogate which provides communications and intelligence support services to the United Kingdom and the United States of America. An event at the base required wrist corsages and we were busy preparing lots of different styles and colours.


We are busy for the next 2 weeks preparing for Father’s Day which is on Sunday June 15th. We expect to create some nice basket arrangement and bouquets as men like flowers too! We have some lovely plant arrangements which are sure to last long such as our Summer Planted Basket and our orchid plant arrangements. We will have a variety of products available some in shades of blues, lilacs and creams and other bright vibrant displays.

Plant and basket arrangements are perfect gifts for delivering to nursing homes and hospitals as there is no fuss trying to cut flower stems and organise a vase. The flower basket just needs to be set in place and watered a couple of times a week. Plants arrangements are also longer lasting so they can be enjoyed for some extra time. Regardless of your preference we will have something suitable!
