Birdcages and Plants fill The Hummingbird in Hertford

We are still loving our Hummingbird install and only just realised we haven’t shared our pics of the gorgeous birdcages and plants that have become synonymous with Hertford’s prettiest pub. With luxurious wallpapers, decadent light fittings and a gorgeous bar, we love filling this place with quirky tropical flower displays in various tin urns and bowls every week. While we are a fresh flower florist, we provide lots of local bars, offices and hotels with planted displays and artificial arrangements. This fabulous pub showcases all three of what we can do in the most beautiful setting.

Our Shop’s Makeover

Our busy little flower shop on Hertford’s busiest street has had a makeover! Our walls (as well as our hands) were becoming a little tired, so we felt a change is as good as a rest! We also really feel that fresh flowers are a luxury and therefore our customers deserve to feel special in our shop! We hope our freshly painted deep dark navy walls, our decadent gold wallpaper, new lights and fancy ordering desk make ordering flowers as special as receiving them! 📸 @murleyandmaplesphotography

Jane Maples Flowers are beyond excited for 2019

I’m beyond excited for 2019… we’ve had a complete shop redecoration over the holidays and I can’t wait to share pictures of our new look. A change is absolutely as good as a rest (which is just as well, because frankly we got no rest this Christmas!). Its all dark and sexy and luxurious and we love it! Every day this week we’ve been so eager to get to work so that we can spend time inside the freshly painted and papered workroom.
We have some amazing weddings in the diary this year, some fabulous new contracts which we are so proud of, we are currently designing our Valentine’s and Mother’s Day range and the day to day running of our new shop has seen us delivering a wonderful 50 arrangements or bouquets in the last 3 days already!
It may be freezing, it may seem like balmy evenings are far, far away… but we have that warm fuzzy feeling about this year. Come and say hi and see what you think of our new shop decor!

Looking back at 2018 Weddings and planning for 2019

How sweet do these gorgeous girls look? Their pretty dresses are matched perfectly with their bouquets of soft blue hydrangea and pink roses. Dreamy!

We are currently working on a whole lot of enquiries for weddings this year and next. There’s something about January which makes brides organise! Love the planning stage… get in touch if you’re planning yours and would like some costings.

Winter Wedding @ Hengrave Hall

The minute Christmas is over, I just like WHITE! Fresh, clean and breezy white roses, orchids and hydrangeas with lush foliages.
I’ve been in the shop today, clearing out all remnants of glitter and fir, ready to begin the new year with a fresh start!
The mere mention of glitter reminds me of this insanely fabulous wedding in November! Just look at this stunning bride and groom! They’re picture perfect and had the dreamiest Winter Wedding, with a serious dusting of glitter on top! Scroll along for some very cute maids and pageboys.

The Winter Herb Garden Hatbox

Yeah I know… not everyone likes the glitz and sparkles like I do! So, we’ve created The Winter Herb Garden Hatbox. These tasteful hatboxes (comes in 3 sizes), are stuffed with white roses and spray roses, lisianthus and cotton balls, alongside sage and rosemary, eucalyptus, pine and pistache. A wonderfully fragrant, tasteful arrangement, perfect as a gift or ideal as a table centrepiece throughout the holiday week.

Florist’s Life

Florist’s life! Now that most of our Christmas installs are done, I’m going to be shop based til the 24th! I’ve actually missed being in the shop, the busy buzz is building as it does every December and now that some schools are finished up, it’s going to be a mega one this week! Can’t wait for a day of wreaths, table decs and bouquets (and a little wedding too!). See you then! Christmas songs at the ready!

NEW STOCK- House of BlueBelle Candles

I’m so excited to tell you that we now stock the most wonderfully fragrant House of BlueBelle candles.
I thought long and hard about whether or not to sell these candles, as I’m so adamant that I am a flower shop and not a gift shop, my focus has and always will remain with flowers, we have little time to do anything else. We get sent lots of samples of lovely products, but it’s only these beauties which made me reconsider.
I had to share these with my customers as I know you’ll love them! They’re the perfect addition to our Signature bouquets. Available in store, or click to shop… and enjoy the fragrance as much as we do!
All 2 wick, luxury handmade candles are packaged in gorgeous white boxes and finished with a grey ribbon. Fragrances include Gin and Tonic (my fav drink), Peony (my fav flower) and Rhodes (which is a gorgeous rich and indulgent fragrance, perfect for cosy nights in – my fav thing).

A gorgeous Christmas planted wooden box

This gorgeous Christmas planted wooden box is the perfect gift! Personally it evokes so many memories of my childhood Christmas. My mum’s best friend lived (and handily still does) in the coolest house along a cobbled alley way off Columbia Road. We would visit every Christmas and they would drink mulled wine while I wrapped presents on their living room floor (I didn’t mind, I’ve loved making things look pretty since forever!). During the day we would wander amongst the market stalls filled with flowers and plants and I was mesmerised by the sellers shouts and jokes. Little did I know that one day, I’d be amongst them in this wonderful game.

Jane Maples Updated Shop Front

For those of you who have not yet seen our makeover… here’s a pic! We’ve changed colour to a deep, dark navy and treated ourselves to a gorgeous new gold letter sign. Decked out for Christmas we have our external #floralinstallation and we are filled to the brim with fresh flowers delivered to us every day, shelves of planters and festive wreaths. Pop by and say hello and let us know what you think of our new look.

Christmas the New England way

It’s fair to say that this year we have been truly spoilt with all of these Christmas installations! With only a couple more left to do, here’s one we did last week. This stunning New England style house, needed some American Christmas charm so we created this showstopper doorway. It really has been the most wonderful time of the year! (P.S. we didn’t do the door bow!)

A beautiful Wedding on a warm Autumn’s day

I get all the best girl gangs! These fabulous ladies soaked up the sun on the last of the warm Autumn days a few weeks ago. Looking sensational in their dresses, finished with beautiful bouquets of #sweetavalancheroses and #gypsophilia flowers.

Something Blue… @That Amazing Place

Marquee weddings definitely need drama!
Large white spaces need gorgeous tall displays to fill up the huge expanse of white fabric. The flower choices you make can really create an impact and carry your wedding style through to each of your guest tables. Here @thatamazingplace we used their silver candelabras and created these fabulous informal displays of sky blue hydrangeas, blush and white roses, lisianthus, stocks, bouvardia and trails of amaranthus and eucalyptus.

Throw some “Southern Charm” into the mix

These beautiful centrepieces filled @hanburymanormarriott Poles Hall last month. Soft blush @meijerroses were mixed with dramatic dark dahlias and astrantia flowers. Our beautiful bride was all the way from America’s Deep South and she wanted to add a little ‘Southern Charm’ so we included these darling pearls!

A Rosy Glow inside little cute Jam Jars

Jam jar weddings are still a hugely popular option for wedding flowers. These weren’t used as the main centrepiece flowers, but were used to decorate window sills and radiator covers @thefoxandhoundshunsdon We like to mix the sizes of jars to create more interest and throw some tea light votives into the mix to add a rosy glow

Goodbye Summer, it’s been a pleasure

Goodbye Summer! You’ve been hard work for me… Giving me all that heat to deal with! Having to hide my flowers in the cool cellar every night, or borrowing air conditioned offices from lovely local businesses and getting up in the middle of the night on the day of the weddings to make arrangements super fresh, cause I feared they’d wilt overnight! BUT… we managed and throughout the heatwave, we had no droopy flowers! We will forgive you, Summer, for all of that because you made our brides so happy! There was so much drinking on the lawns, partying into the night and saying “I do” in the open air. You’ve been amazing, Summer, the perfect backdrop to our beautiful wedding flowers.
Tomorrow we will launch our New Autumn Signature range of bouquets and the shop will be bursting with golds and oranges. Until next year, Summer 🙋‍♀️. .

A flower wall full of exotic flowers

This gorgeous wall was created for last weeks @lucybeecoconut wedding party. Lucy had already had her intimate wedding ceremony in Majorca the week before. She had really pretty and delicate florals for her big day, so we wanted to create something completely different for the party night back home. After our initial consultation, we chatted about what she liked and what would set the tone for a fabulous party vibe. The main focus was to be the bar, which was straight in front of you as you entered the marquee. So I offered the idea of these two flower walls to stand either side. It was great to work with Lucy as she had the vision to understand my ideas, as well as the trust to give me artistic license to do what I do best. A few months later and et voila… an amazing wedding party night filled with friends and family who danced and drank the night away in front of these two tropical beauties. 🌴 🌷

Phesant feathers amongst fruits and flowers

It was such a treat to be let loose with these flowers, feathers and fruits. These arrangements were designed to compliment a traditional Russian feasting tradition at a wedding. They are reminiscent of antique oil paintings of opulent still life displays. We just love it when brides let us run with our creativity and sketch and design and create until the perfect display arrives on the table! Thank you to our lovely bride for giving us creative license, it was a complete joy working with you!
