A Big Gorgeous Luxe Bouquet

On the subject of hairdressers… these went to the lovely Sue @headlineshertford A gorgeous big bunch of pampas, bleached foliage’s, peacock feathers, hydrangeas, lilies, roses and orchids. All wrapped with our frosted paper and luxe ribbons. Our favourite brief is one where our customers tell us they’ll leave it to us… means we get to play at our most creative.

The one thing Hertford is not short of, is Hairdressers

The one thing Hertford is not short of, is hairdressers! With their re-opening yesterday, the town definitely felt back to normal. The glamorous locals will be strutting their new haircuts up and down Fore Street again! Yay! Can’t wait to join them next week too when I have my first appointment! 🙌. These flowers are welcoming the clients of @1409hair_ We went for bright and colourful to match the gorgeous owner, Lisa!

Love for our Hertford Town

Feeling lots of Hertford love right now… see our castle in the background here? Isn’t it gorgeous? The roads might be closed, the pubs and restaurants boarded up still and the pavements cluttered with bollards… but it’s starting to feel more and more normal and I’m so excited to see our cute little town up and running properly soon! Saturday was like the good old days, people in and out all day picking up bouquets and bunches. One more week to go before another big change… x

When Two Wild Blondes Get Together

When two wild blondes get together… they make pretty hatboxes! Inspired by @mother_wild trademark muted tones and rustic vibe, we decided to put her pens to our boxes and fill them with Mother Wild style flowers… blousy peonies, full hydrangea, rich toffee coloured roses, fragrant stocks, feathery astilbe, pampas grass, vintage style cars and stunning veined anthuriums, these hatboxes are available for a limited time only on our website.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Visit our wedding page where you can find out more and discuss your requirements.

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!)
