July - Win flowers for your birthday!
It's time us to say thank you to our wonderful supporters so
this month we're starting our very first flower giveaway and it's going to
be huge! Keep reading to find out how you can be part of this very special
Winter has certainly descended on Canberra. We're all chipping the ice off
our cars in the morning and rugging up with beanies and scarves. But the
best thing about being a florist is that it's always bright and beautiful
at work. Once we've all stripped off our layers and made a hot cuppa we can
pretend it's as sunny outside as it is inside!
It's been a busy month since the last newsletter! We've been doing lots of
jobs in the shop, giving it a mid-year revamp. We've changed our in-store
display with the aim to 'inspire' your creativity! Aileen and I spent a
lovely afternoon creating gorgeous hanging tags with lots of words to get
your minds working including love, wish, heal and joy. The display also
includes potted pansies, paper doily flowers and some of our hanging test
tube vases filled with fresh flowers. Our favourites are the hyacinth
hearts! You must come and see it for yourselves! We've also introduced a
new winter warming product, our teeny tiny fishbowl vases filled with
seasonal flowers. They are a mini-version of our large fishbowls, perfect
for your desk or as a special gift.
Our most exciting job though has been planning our enormous, year-long
flower giveaway! There's nothing like getting flowers for your birthday - a
big, bright bunch dropped off at your workplace, with all your envious
friends looking on! Well, we've decided it's about time we treated some of
our fabulous supporters to exactly that - flowers for your birthday from
us! But we're not going to send you just any flowers, we're going to send
you your birth flower!! How do you enter? Well, all you need to do is jump
onto Facebook, 'like' and 'share' our page with your friends and then put
