Valentines 2018- A big thank you too!

The flying dutchman came for a last minute visit in time for valentines and a quick selfie! We then had 150 bouquets sitting in the shop waiting to find their owners on Tuesday 13th Feb for Wednesday 14th Feb! It’s always tricky knowing how many extra bouquets to make for those last minute passer by romantics who want to pick up a bouquet on impulse… but we nailed it this year… nothing left, a complete sell out! Lots of happy customers, lots of orders and lots of deliveries, which meant we had such a perfect Valentines ourselves! Thanks for all of your support Hertford!

Our favourite 9 from 2017

It came without a doubt that it would be very hard to pick our favourite nine out of all the masterpieces we created last year as we had such a wonderful year… Thanks so much to all of our lovely customers for your support last year! Looking forward to 2018… lots of arrangements to be made, brides to make smile and bouquets to be delivered!

We were busy little faries this Christmas

This Christmas we were certainly busy little faries creating masterpieces in/on people’s homes. The gorgeous white house in Brickendon got the perfect makeover. The entrance was filled with blue pine, cinnamon sticks and pheasant feathers wrapped in a giant red bow, that looked perfect against the white as it spiraled up to the top. As you entered the home a stunning staircase was right in front of you covered in blue pine, pheasant feathers, cones, gold grevillea and large fragrant cinnamon sticks, finished with a gorgeous American style bow. We absolutely loved it and it was decor envy! The final delivery was also made of the year with a decadent silver spruce candle arrangement that completed a perfect Christmas table.

Christmas is nearly here!!

It’s that time of year where Santa is soon to be arriving for all the excited little boys and girls. We love Christmas here at Jane Maples Flowers and creating Christmas wreaths like this is why we love our job. A perfect rich, bold red wreath with gerbras, pine cones, roses and berries will sit perfectly on someone’s front door.

A winter wedding in Westminster

The Jane Maples dream team took their passion and creativity to the pews of St Margaret’s Westminster to create a beautiful, snowy winter wedding for the bride to be. The ends were filled with big luxury bouquets of gypsophilia tied in bows of white organza. Each girl of the girl squad had a task in the hall and turned it into a perfect wedding that any girl could dream of! What a choice of places to get married!

A romantic wedding set in the grounds of Froyle Park

The gorgeous bride of this delicate wedding loved her bouquet so much she didn’t put it down all day! These small little things make us love our job even more, and we were really proud of this one as it was so big and beautiful. Pinks and grey tones filled the bouquet and perfectly matched the bridesmaids glamourous gowns. We even added dahlia’s to the elegant semi- naked 3 tier wedding cake. Each table had a very large centre piece on it with the added luxury of hydrangea’s and willow.

Hatties’s White Wedding at That Amazing Place

We went to That Amazing Place to fill Hattie’s reception room with Gypsophilia for a country style wedding. Have you ever seen such a perfectly neat and tidy room for a wedding? A gorgeous 30inch ring packed full of Gypsophilia sat perfectly on top of the mantle piece inside the room, with a big and beautiful hydrangea and gypsophilia bouquet held tightly in the bride’s hand as she walked down the aisle to her prince! Gypsophilia works brilliantly for a modern style wedding too, arranged neatly in glass cubes.

A gorgeous, sparkling Italian wedding at Boreham House

A perfect wedding fit for any princess! The marquee was filled with candlesticks topped with lovely full floral balls of hyrangeas, roses, gypsophilia and dahlia’s. A candlebra took centre stage in this delicately designed room with the most beautiful of roses poking there way through. The bride walked down the aisle with a perfectly styled bouquet consisting of blousy white peonies, paired with a new favourite Quicksand rose. The flower girl walked in front with a dreamy gypsophilia pomander, it was so cute and every little girl deserves one of these! The bridesmaids carried gypsophilia bouquets to compliment the brides gorgeous bouquet and doesn’t the bride and her sisters all look stunning.

A whimsical summer wedding at Milling Barn

The guests walked through under an arch that was covered in a gorgeous whimsical style of flowers trailing down to the sweet Milling Barn. Big beautiful hydrangea’s filled the opening of what was going to be a sensational wedding. Chivari chairs gathered around each table with a centrepiece of a rose gold vase stuffed with late season peonies, dusky pink roses, summer delphiniums and astilbe, with mixed eucalyptus leaves. The bride and her bridesmaids carried bouquets of dusky pinks with foilage down the aisle complimenting their sparkly dresses.

Wedding Flowers St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London

“I always take my weddings incredibly seriously and they all come with a certain amount of pressure. Over the last 10 years there’s not much I haven’t done… but when my brother and his fiance told me where they were getting married and that they wanted the hotel’s famous staircase (think Harry Potter and Spice Girls’ Wannabe) covered in white hydrangeas, I felt more pressure than ever! 1,000 hydrangeas, 800 roses and boxes of orchids delivered to the hotel at 3 am on the morning of the wedding, gave me and my amazing team 9 hours to turn this stunning venue into the romantic and luxurious space that they wanted. When staff at the venue tell you that the hotel has never looked so beautiful and the bride and groom tell you that the flowers were perfect and the most beuatiful part of the day…. you know you’ve done a good job.” – Jane
