Valentine's Madness

This was just a few of our roses for the madness that was Valentine's Day....Monday is not the best day for the most romantic day of the year. For us it stretched over 3 days, which made us very unromantic!!

We decided to mix up our colours and not to stick with red.....and it was a huge hit!

Our happy colourful spring bouquets where the stars of the show....a beautiful alternative to the traditional red roses.

 The lovely parrot tulips came wrapped in this fun paper.....I love the cheese, so did the Wonderful  Dutchman!! He misses his Dutch cheese A.L.O.T!

Ma Magpie creating a gorgeous Rose bouquet....the men of Hungerford went for 12 roses rather than 6...the old romantics!

The Wonderful Dutchman still thinking about cheese....look at that smile.....or maybe it just the fact that there are men to talk to in the shop!

Hot pink and orange...clashing colours....there is quite a few ladies of Hungerford rocking this look this Valentines Day and my personal favourite!

I hope your day was filled with swoon~ful kisses, gorgeous bouquets of flowers and delicious delights.

Wedding's, Glorious Weddings

Here at Martin & the Magpie, we so proud of our wedding work...we take a huge amount of time and effort making sure your day is perfect and how you envisioned it. We think seasonal and top quality flowers will always shine on your day. As we have our own Dutchman, he makes sure we get only the best flowers from Holland...we also love to use British flowers where ever possible, mainly in the run up to Spring & Summer...English Daffodils, Scented Garden roses, stocks, peony, tulips, sweetpea's and Dahlias...sweet smelling and perfect for a wedding.

Martin & the Magpie understand that you don't need a huge amount of flowers to make stunning display, sometimes the simplest ideas work the best to show case the flowers. A new a lovely trend is to personalise your wedding with vintage book, jam jars, balloons, birdcages & large candelabras. We are seeing more growing table centers of Herbs, trailing jasmine and ivy, and the super trendy succulents.

Re-used jam jars or vintage bottles are a firm favorite.....Vintage teacups & teapots..... mason jars....

...Jelly moulds, kitchen storage jars....the sky is the limit!

If you would like to have a chat about your wedding we are more than happy to discuss ideas and flowers with you. Just give us a ring on 01488 681062

We look forward to hearing all about your day!
