Love is in the Air!

Love is in the air at The Flower Shop Yarnton and all around the nursery, happiness definitely seems to be heart shaped!

Do you live in Yarnton, Kidlington or North Oxford?

Then chances are you will have been lucky enough to receive one or our lovely leaflets through your letterbox this week.

We are offering anyone who brings their leaflet into us at the shop an amazing 20% off anything we stock, this includes flowers, books, glassware and ceramics and of course our wonderful Valentine's Day bouquets and gifts.

Or if you would prefer to keep your leaflet for another time, to use for a special occasion or perhaps for Mother's Day, then that's fine too because this offer has no expiry date, although of course you must produce the leaflet in the shop to be eligible for the offer and you cannot use it more than once (yes that means that once you hand it over we get to keep it!)

Scroll down this page to see the wonderful options we have for Valentine's Day, you really can spend as much or as little as you wish ... see you soon!

Only a week until Valentine's Day everyone, let's talk red roses!

It doesn't have to be red roses on Valentine's Day of course, there are some stunning roses in other colours too, and even other flowers come to that! But then again, the red rose has long been the symbol of true love and we have plenty of options so that you can keep it simple or really push the boat out with that grand gesture! If you can't see what you want here, just let us know, we can also make bespoke arrangements in glass vases or bowls if you are looking for something a little more contemporary

Nearly there with the painting!

More pics ...

The transformation begins!

At long last it was time to get the paint tins open this morning and transform those orange walls into something a little more neutral as a nice backdrop for all those wonderful flowers we will be stocking up on in just a couple of weeks.Cathy hasn't looked at a tin of paint in over 20 years, so thank goodness decorating expert Karen was there to take charge!  All in all, not a bad start for two florists, us women can turn our hand to anything it seems :o)

Here's a few pics of us in action, Karen making a start ... our lovely big flower cooler ... and Cathy trying very hard to look like she knows what she's doing and not fall off the ladder!

Karen makes a start ...
