You may well know that the third Monday of every January is recognised as Blue Monday.

It is when everything is supposed to get on top of you; a combination of that back-to-work syndrome, dreadful cold and wet weather, ‘Dry January’ turning ‘Wet’ again as New Year resolutions fall by the wayside and the realisation of how much you actually spent at Christmas as the credit card bills kick in.

So everyone is entitled to feel depressed and down, beaten and blue. And of course for some people every Monday is a Blue Monday.

As I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you, ‘tis the season to be jolly and we were recently called to make it so at Backwell House Hotel.

Backwell House is luxury 9 bedroomed country manor house perfectly placed in North Somerset within easy reach of both Bristol Airport and the vibrant city of Bristol itself. It features an award winning restaurant, bar and gardens and has hosted numerous weddings, private parties and corporate events over the years.

Because we were invited to create a woodland themed wedding!

The happy couple, Chris and Emilia, wanted something spectacular and different and eventually settled on a woodland theme for the flowers at their wedding celebration. That set us thinking and inspiration soon flowed.

Take a look at this video to see how it turned out. We took the woodland theme and ran with it, from the bridal bouquet, groom’s button hole to the stunning selection of blooms adorning the top table.

The wonderful Flower Council of Holland website regularly nominates a Houseplant of the Month and for December they have chosen Anthurium.

Anthurium is attractive, easily looked after and will bring a unique touch of sophistication to any home. The white variety provides serenity while the red and greens are much more vibrant.

Originating in Colombia, Guatemala and the Amazon region of Brazil, in its natural state the Anthurium will be found growing in and on trees with relatively few roots, drawing nutrients from the tree. It prefers a warm spot away from bright sunlight but with high humidity.

You may remember a couple of months ago I asked if some of you would be willing to nominate us for the Wedding Industry Awards. Well I’m pleased to say that so many of you did that we have reached the South West Regional Floristry Final!

The Wedding Industry Awards are the only regional and national awards voted by clients to recognise and reward excellent wedding suppliers. In addition, the awards help the next wave of soon-to-be newly-weds choose the best suppliers.

We are up against stiff opposition from seven other finalists in the floristry section of the competition, from Monmouth down to Truro.
