February - Love is in the air!

The month of love is here! Jamison Flowers will soon be teeming with gorgeous red roses as Canberra celebrates Valentine's Day! And we are having a love affair of our own….

February is here and our monthly newsletter is back! It's probably a bit late to wish you all a 'Happy New Year' but we will anyway. It's been a hot start to 2014, hopefully you're all coping with this extreme summer weather. The flowers need more tender loving care than usual, they're all drinking water like mad and we're rushing around making sure the vases don't run dry!

It's been a very exciting start to the year at Jamison Flowers. After lots of preparation, planning , shopping and sweating over colour swatches (actually that was the best bit), the much anticipated shop renovation took place in early January, and I love, love, love it! Hopefully you've all had a chance to see the amazing transformation. First you'll notice the gorgeous bench tops, the warm and inviting colour and the distressed timber finishes. You'll need to look a bit closer to see my favourite things including the fantastic collection of doorknobs and the beautiful mirror behind the flower stand. Of course it wasn't all about making the shop look fantastic, the new cupboards and shelves give us more storage, the pull out paper drawers are the best ever, and the extra bench space means we bump into each other less often. Believe it or not, I didn't do it all by myself, there were lots of people who worked very hard to get the work done as quickly as possible. I want to thank my Dad and Mum, Peter and Julianne, my sister Louise and my brother-in-law Luke. And I would also like to say a big thank you to my gorgeous nephew Darcy, who donned his new tool kit to help make concrete! It truly was a family affair!

It's lucky we've found some new space because we're certainly going to need it this month! Yes it's that time of year again - our busiest day of the year - Valentine's Day. This year it's shaping up to be bigger than ever. We've spent weeks planning and ordering, making bows, folding boxes, cleaning vases and doing as much preparation as we can to make sure they day runs smoothly. We will sell hundreds and hundreds of roses on February 14, the day for lovers! We've got lots of special Valentine's Day products to choose from this year to suit everyone and all budgets. Our most popular product from last year will make a comeback, our arrangement of red roses and oriental lilies in a bouquet or a vase - it looks and smells fantastic! While red roses are the Valentine's favourite, we will also have our usual range of fresh flowers available. Make sure you browse through all the options on our website or facebook. Don't forget we always reward those of you who are organised - if you order before 8 February we will give you 10% off. Last year our biggest order was a bouquet of 60 long stem red roses…..will we top that this year? We'll keep you posted!

With all the renovations we neglected our 'Flowers for your birthday' competition, but the good news is we announced two winners this month! Congratulations to Emma Pappas, our December winner who will receive a bunch of orchids, and our January winner Sue Roche will receive carnations. If you celebrate a birthday in February, make sure you 'like' our Facebook page and put your birthday month in the comments section of our competition posts and you'll go into the draw.

Well that's all for now, time to concentrate on roses! Don't forget to order something now for your someone special! Wishing you lots of love this Valentine's Day.

Love Rosie.
