International Women's Day - 8th March 2011

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.  This day of celebration dates back to 1911 and was formed to honour the work of the Suffragettes who marched through New York City in 1908 campaigning for women's right to vote. 

Now, we shouldn't need a reason to buy a lady some flowers but here at The Flower Studio we are sure there are some pretty amazing women out there who deserve a bit of a treat.  So to mark the Centenary celebrations of International Women's Day we are having a little competition to win a stunning bouquet of flowers worth £100 and here is what you need to do!

Email The Flower Studio and let us know which lady in your life has inspired you... it is that simple!  Whether it is your Mum, Grandma, Sister, Teacher, Friend, Neighbour, or Colleague... have they helped you, supported you, loved you, cared for you in a way that makes them stand out as someone extra special?  We will choose the best story (althought I think that will be very difficult!) and the winner will receive our bouquet.

Click here to find out more about International Women's Day Celebrations around the world.

Terms and Conditions apply.  Delivery of the Bouquet is only possible  to an address on the Isle of Man.  No Cash alternative.  Judges decision is final.  Closing date for competition is Monday 7th March.

Don't end up in the Dog House this Valentine's Day - Monday 14th February!

The count down to Valentine's Day has started and hopefully, by this time next week you and your loved one will have declared (or re-declared!) your love for one another, swapped gifts and be looking forward to a night of romance!

If you haven't already decided what gift to get for your other half, then why not look at our stunning Valentine's collection of flowers.  Starting from just £19.99 plus delivery and with finishing touches like yummy chocolates and fun balloons, there is something there for all tastes and budgets.

We have secured hundreds of stunning red roses from the Dutch auctions including the beautiful 'Red Naomi' and velvety 'Upper Class', both varieties have an excellent vase life and will gradually open to show off their large full petalled blooms.  And if you want to break from the norm, we have a glorious selection of other flowers, including white and pink roses, orchids, tulips and seasonal spring flowers.  Don't leave the order too late though as we would hate you to be disappointed!

Mmmm Mimosa

Walk through our shop door, close your eyes and take a deep breath.....

That fragrance that is delicately dancing up your nostrils is the beautiful Mimosa and it is one of my all time favourites!  After doing a bit of research I found out the Mimosa is actually renowned for its healing properties and is widely used in alternative medicines for its uplifting and energising effect.  That must be why it has made me feel so happy!

Spreading the Happiness...
Get some Mimosa in your life!

Mimosa stems - available during February and March at The Flower Studio £2.50 per stem (and other happy florist shops nationwide I'm sure!)  Put a few stems in a vase on your breakfast table to lift your spirits at the start of the day.

Mimosa room spray - for year round scent when the cut flowers are out of season!  Diptyque Mimosa Room Spray £34 John Lewis

Mimosa perfume - For a bit of luxury, Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Tiare Mimosa Women's Fragrance mixes the scent of Mimosa with citrus zest, vanilla and other flowery notes.

Add finally... A Mimosa Cocktail!

1 part Disaronno
2 parts fresh orange juice
Champagne to top up

Pour the Disaronno into a tall champagne flute and mix in the orange juice.  Top up with chilled Champagne and garnish with a slice or two of orange.

Best served immeditely, with friends!
