Don't mention the C word!!!

We know it's probably a little early to mention the C word, but we need to let you all know that we are now taking orders and bookings for our Christmas products and workshops. If you would like to order anything Christmas and flower related from us, do let us know as soon as possible. Whether you require door wreaths, garlands, amaryllis trees, candle arrangements or anything else, we can deliver these to you right up to Christmas Eve. Or if you prefer to have a go yourself and would like one of our "make at home" kits ... no problem!

We also offer guidance with your creations, our floristry tuition is flexible, there is no set date as we work around you. Most of the fresh materials you need can be found in the garden or hedgerows so this really helps to keep costs down! We can come to your home or chosen venue for a one to one or with your friends for some pre-Christmas fun, or at your chosen venue for larger groups and clubs. We also offer tuition to children, something like this cute Christmas pudding perhaps?

For more details, call us on 01865 890695 or just pop a comment below :o)

Do you live and/or work in Chalgrove?  Then read on ... !

As many of you know, ten months ago we moved our business from Yarnton in North Oxford, where we had been for two years, to our home village of Chalgrove in South Oxfordshire.  We have been running the business online since then, the change was due to a decrease in "shop" customers and the increase in online and telephone orders.  We know many small businesses that have gone down this road and, though we were heartbroken to lose our little shop, we know now it was the right thing to do.  So far things have been going well and the increase in custom and not having to pay overheads like rent, etc., means our takings have doubled.  As many of you know, we still cover the whole of Oxfordshire and still have corporate and regular customers in North Oxford, particularly in Yarnton and Kidlington.

We would like to thank all of our customers all over the county for supporting our business and helping us to continue offering the best quality flowers at a sensible price.  We absolutely love what we do and we hope this is reflected in the products and service that we provide.

During our time in Yarnton, we offered those living and working in the village special offers and discounts on all of our products.  We would now like to offer these same deals to residents of Chalgrove and small businesses based here.

If you are a Chalgrove resident or you run a business based in Chalgrove, the following special offers are available to you from The Flower Shop ...

20% discount on your first gift bouquet order with us.

Buy one get one free on floristry workshop sessions.  This includes our Christmas wreath and wedding flowers workshops.

20% discount on wedding flowers regardless of amount for any booking from a Chalgrove resident bride or groom.  No catches or conditions!

20% discount on any funeral tribute order and FREE delivery on all funeral tribute deliveries throughout the county for Chalgrove residents.

50% off weekly corporate flowers for any Chalgrove business.  This includes reception flowers, washroom flowers, etc.  In return we ask for our business cards and occasional seasonal promotions to be displayed with the flowers.  Any staff members of a Chalgrove business which has a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly contract with us will be entitled to a 20% discount on their own personal flowers, regardless of where they live, for the duration of the contract.  This includes wedding flowers, funeral flowers and gift bouquets. 

Delivery to Chalgrove and many of the surrounding villages is FREE.  However, we do charge a flat rate of £3.50 for deliveries further afield.  Please contact us if you would like to know more.

If you have any comments or questions about any of the above, please contact us on 01865 890695 or 07512 212283 or by e.mail or by leaving us a comment on our webpage or Facebook page.

We welcome feedback, good or bad, about our products and services, so please feel free to write in our guest book here on the website.

Blog apologies!

We just want to apologise for the lack of blogness since Easter, we have been very busy with the wedding season now upon us.  However, the biggest problem is the time it takes to update on the website as opposed to the quick and easy task of updating our Facebook page.  It's a bit of a faff to be honest.  However, we are in the process of copying our recent Facebook posts onto this blog so look out for those.

If you are a Facebook user, our page is updated daily so keep checking there to find out what we've been up to and to view lots and lots of photos!  Leave us a comment - we would love to hear from you with your feedback, especially if you have purchased flowers from us for whatever occasion.  If you're not on Facebook, you can still view the page without having to log in. :o)

We are delighted to be helping a great local business, Shand's cakes, by promoting their fantastic range of cakes for Valentine's Day.  These cakes are ideal as a gift with or without a beautiful bouquet from The Flower Shop. Obviously, we think flowers and cake are a match made in heaven for Valentine's Day but then we are a little biased! :o)

You can buy the cakes pictured below from us or directly from Shand's Cakes by e.mailing them at [email protected] or phoning the lovely Nodene on 07921 228 355.

All of these cakes can be gift wrapped in whichever quantity you choose and can be ordered separately or as an "add on" to a flower order from us.

If you'd like to sample some of these delicious cakes with an equally delicious hot beverage, why not pop along to The Village Cafe in Little Milton? The perfect way to recharge your batteries and indulge yourself a little at any time of day :o)

We will be showing more products from Shand's Cakes in the future so look out for more seasonal treats for Mother's Day and Easter in the weeks and months to come!

Make a big impression for less money this Valentine's Day! 

You may have noticed that some florists, especially those in the busier areas, are charging a huge amount for red roses this year.  And if you buy from a relay service this can be as much as a third more!

You don't have to spend a small fortune just to show someone you care. If you're thinking about sending flowers to your Valentine then please do give us a call, or take a look at our Valentine's Day album on Facebook (the link is just to the left of this blog).  Or, if you prefer, browse our order online section right here on our website. 

There are many different options to choose from if you're looking to make a real statement on  Valentine's Day.    Sometimes a lovely mixed bouquet of quality, long lasting, gorgeous flowers can make much more of an impact than red roses.  Not that we don't love the traditional red rose, but with all the florists bidding for the same flower at auction, they are bound to shoot up in price in the weeks to come.

Even just mixing a few red roses in with other flowers rather than going for an all red rose bouquet can save you money.  Or why not go for a rose bouquet in pinks and creams?

So don't rush to the supermarket and buy inferior quality flowers at the last minute this year, order your flowers from a proper florist.  Go for something different and really make an impression!

Any customers ordering by 8th February will receive a 20% discount on their flowers and a 10% discount on a Valentine's Day meal at The Lamb Inn, Chalgrove. Orders received before 31st January will receive the above PLUS a FREE Valentine's teddy and chocolates!

Call us on 01865 890695
