Having a clear-out of images, saving, moving, exporting, filing, (tax) returns. January so far has been extremely screen filled. My aim this year is to create simple self care habits that support and nourish my body and mind & also to create a clearer definition between business time and time off. I’m a morning person so it works better for me to work first thing, rest and have leisure time in the afternoon and I then teach yoga on a Monday evening ✌🏻see @bloomingroutesyoga I’d love to know how everyone else sets out their daily schedule!
Tbt filling teacups with spring flowers. Looking out at the garden, full of promise and anticipation for the spring. Planning, setting goals, making game plans and giving myself pep talks for this little business of mine - (basically using all sports talk) BRING ON SPRING. 🙌🏻
It's impossible for me to choose a favourite wedding bouquet. But this would definitely be on my top ten! I have always loved this hand tied we created for Sophie's and Kenny's wedding at High Wards nearly (gulp...) 3 years ago! I think Sophie loved it too...."thank you so much for creating our amazing flowers for our wedding day. I loved my bouquet so much and it was even better than I could have imagined. I'll be sure to pass on your details to anyone looking for incredible flowers in the future" #highwardsestate#highwardswedding ...
Really enjoyed our day in the capital city today... at the @thebalmoral hotel for the @luxuryscottishwedding show... it was so nice to meet all the lovely brides & grooms & also some of the other exhibitors & venues... we created a suspended tablescape using lots of fresh eucalyptus & seasonal flowers... anemones, ranunculus, roses, lilac , hydrangea & beautiful scented Patience @david_austin_roses... all foam free of course! @nofloralfoam @shaneconnollyandco #scottishflorist#nofloralfoam

Fresh year, fresh ideas to try with of course those beautiful fresh flowers. I’m usually a strong colour type gal but I do also love pure white with shades of green. Different textures are what makes a flower arrangement stand out in my eyes. Fashion in flowers changes frequently but one thing that is always consistent is the beauty and happiness flowers can bring to an occasion. Could you imagine a wedding with out flowers? A bride with out a bouquet or flower crown. Sounds like a horror show to me. My heart rate has gone up at the mere ...
• Archway to Festival Heaven • Throwback to last August when I got to create this colour pop Archway on this gorgeous building that led to the most beautiful walled garden. Love looking back at creations from the year past and it’s getting me excited about the year ahead as I’m sitting here creating mood boards and ideas for clients. #colourpop

• Boho Vibes • A few pictures from my last wedding of 2018. Loved working on this one. The steps up to the venue was filled with logs, Moss, pampas Grass and branch arrangements, lanterns and festoon to give a lovely winter boho vibe. 🌿🌾🍂
A florist's best friend... Bees!! My team have finally made the move across to Dumfries and Galloway and will soon be out pollinating and encouraging the wild flowers for beautiful, spring floral displays. Then there's the honey... . . . . . . #bees#beehive

Table detailing.... Tall table centres are stunning and create amazing impact when you enter your reception room. Consider some flowers or candles at the base to add interest to the table once your seated. Photographer @fianderfoto Flowers @weddingflowersbysusan #weddingflowers#awesome_florals
