A Big Thank You to all of our Key Workers

Thank you to all of our key workers! We’ve been delivering to so many of you over the last few weeks and we are so grateful for all that you’re doing!
Personally, I’m grateful to my drivers and girls who are creating gorgeous bouquets, as well as beautiful tributes during difficult times and then delivering them to high-risk areas, safely and efficiently. I’m so grateful, as are so many of our wonderful customers. 😘😘😘

Cheer the House up with some Beautiful Blooms

That’s been a long day of buying, creating and delivering flowers! A long bubble bath, candles, róse and red roses is everything I need to wind down! I bought these 🌹 this morning (along with some orchids and hydrangea) to cheer the house up with… inject some freshness and enjoy being where we are all staying put for at least the next 3 weeks! I wasn’t alone in self-indulgence this weekend, lots of you decided to send yourself flowers and why the hell not! Make your home exactly where you want to be, fill the oven with homemade cakes, fill the wardrobes with online shopping and fill your vases with fresh blooms! Join me in what I’m now deciding to call ‘me week’. 🥰
.
I’ll be taking bespoke orders for this Thursday’s delivery all day tomorrow, and up until Wednesday for Saturday. .
The website is still up and running for Saturday deliveries. .
DM me for special requests! .
While the kids go back to ‘school’, it’s time we went back to us 😘.

Stay at Home

I’m so loving being a part of the love that’s getting thrown around right now! We’re delivering so many bouquets to those of you in Hertford, Ware, Broxbourne and the villages all with the sweetest messages! We’ve had the usual birthdays and anniversaries, but the most special of all at the moment, are the ‘sending you hugs’, ‘can’t wait to see yous’ and the ‘we’ll be again together soons’ messages. My favourites are those sent by proud family missing their loved ones who are working tirelessly for us all in the NHS… we too will be clapping for them tonight!
Also loving working from home… the shop phone is diverted to my mobile so I get to spend the week at home as I should be, with the children and the dog, enjoying the sunshine… keeping safe. Every Thursday and Saturday, I am driving early to the wholesalers and making bouquets that are delivered contactless. Our tribute work is being delivered daily too, ensuring that the funerals are still looking as beautiful as always.
Lastly, a big thank you to everyone who is supporting us. We are only a small business, but one that has been part of Hertford’s high street for the last 12 years and we hope to stay where we are long after this crazy time. We appreciate every single order and are proud to be serving you through these strange times.
If you want to send some love with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, give me a call or go online to order. 01992 554 975 or www.janemaplesflowers.co.uk

Christmas at Home

Christmas at our home… after a customer ordered mini poinsettias but didn’t collect them, I was secretly pleased… so I could use them for my table! The red pops out perfectly against white table linen. My favourite Quicksand roses work perfectly in the pinky-beige living room and our Boho bouquet was my favourite this year, so I made one for myself!

That time between Autumn and Christmas. When it’s not gone crazy mad yet, but it’s super cosy and the excitement’s building up! My favourite time!

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.
