Our florist’s first Christmas, Rosedale House Floral Designs were delighted to host a stall at the Horncastle Victorian Christmas Market on Sunday 4th December 2016. Having a stall on the Christmas market was initially daunting, our ‘florist first Christmas’ market was  overwhelming, welcoming and positive as customers responded positively to our bespoke designs.  Following its success we will be looking to visit different markets across Lincolnshire in 2017.

As festive celebrations draw closer and our homes are filled with the scent of mulled wine, pine needles and mince pies. At Rosedale House we are delighted to be working with our customers to create unique table and Christmas tree decorations, garlands, wreaths, window displays and dinner party gifts. Our bespoke approach to floristry allows our creative thinking design team to personalise arrangements to meet customer expectations through our pre-order system.

img_2284We have been able to source some of our Christmas greens locally to support Lincolnshire’s flower industry. Our door and sympathy wreaths have been made using traditional techniques. Furthermore, we have been delighted to run two wreath making workshops of different techniques to create either a table wreath or door wreath.

Coupled with our modern approach to floristry we like to celebrate Christmas in traditional ways. We have recently sourced, British Mistletoe to uphold the ancient romantic Norse tradition of ‘kissing under the mistletoe’. The tradition states that it is bad luck to refuse a kiss beneath the mistletoe. After the kiss, the couple is to pluck one of the berries from the branch. Once all the berries are gone, the bouquet no longer has the power to command kisses. So if you hang mistletoe this year, make sure it has plenty of berries. Decorative bundles mistletoe will be available for purchase in store later this week.
