Fiona Curry Flowers

Holybourne Lodge, London Rd, Holybourne, Alton GU34 4EW, UK – 01420 543049

Most splendid arrangements! The detail was exquisite, but also catered to exactly what I wanted. Not only was the experience exceptionally professional but the friendly demeanor made the whole day that much more pleasant. Everyone adored the flowers, including myself; you can't help but. From the organisation the the aesthetics, even if you aren't sure of what you like, you will love what you get.

Well where do we begin, from our first meeting with Fiona back in August 2017, we knew she was the florist for us. I was one of those brides who didn’t really know too much about what I wanted but with her help, guidance and suggestions, we came up with a grand plan. We kept in touch with Fiona during the coming months and had the option to chop and change things, adding a few bits a long the way and changing bits here and there; Fiona was great at accommodating this. We had a final meeting 6 weeks before the wedding, doing a re run of everything we had chosen and just making sure we were still happy with the choices. I am a visual person and until I see things in the flesh, I cannot always completely picture how they are going to look. I was overwhelmed when Fiona’s team turned up at my hotel with my bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets, the varying button holes and corsages for the wedding party and we cannot forget the flower wand for the little flower girls, what a great and fun idea! Then I still had more to come, the church looked absolutely stunning, from the flowers on the pew ends to the urns at the alter and the flowers as we walked into the church, everyone commented on how lovely it looked. Then, the marquee........ WOW!!! Talk about how to transform a marquee, we had 18 tables with these incredible high glass vases with the most magnificent flowers in them, plus the addition of tea lights on each table and an amazing array of lower vases and tea lights on the top table. Fiona also made up a spray to go around the cake and another for the table plan. All of these touches just made our wedding day even more special, the tables just looked out of this world. I couldn’t put my bouquet done, I loved it so much and I certainly was not throwing it for anyone else to enjoy ;). You do not realise until you are getting married how much hard work and commitment goes into everything to make your wedding day so special and the amount of people involved in doing this. We truly thank Fiona from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so gorgeous and special. I couldn’t recommend her and her team more highly to anyone planning on getting married, she lifts another weight off of your shoulders when planning a wedding and puts you at utter ease throughout this process. Thank you Fiona x

Make my day flowers

69 High St, Alton GU34 1AB, UK – 01420 80289

Lindsay at this florists was exceptionally helpful when I was discussing the requirements for my grandads funeral. Brilliant florist! 👍🏼💐

If you are based in the Alton area, I would highly recommend Linzi, at Make My Day Flowers, for all your flower arrangements. The flowers that she did for our mother's funeral were simply beautiful. We only had a rough idea what we wanted and needed, but Linzi was able to turn our vague musings and thoughts into a floral splendor, fitting for the occasion and helped make a sad and difficult time more manageable to bear with her kindness, thought and expertise. Everyone, on the day, commented on how lovely the coffin and wake flowers were and how they were just what Mum would have chosen herself. Thanks Linzi.

Tips - Caring for your flowers once they are delivered

Placing your flowers in vase half to two thirds full with lukewarm water, will help closed buds to start opening.

  • Be careful when un-wrapping a hand-tied bouquet as it is delivered in a water bubble to keep the flowers fresh.
  • Arranging your flowers in cold water should be avoided as this can reduce the their life in the vase.
  • Avoid puting flowers in metal or aluminium containers - glass is ideal. Keep your flowers in a cool location, away from draughts, direct heat or sunlight. Arrange once unwrapped
  • Your flowers may take up to 24 hours after being placed in water to reach their full potential.
  • Strip off all excess foliage and leaves below the water level to reduce any harmful bacteria within the water.
  • Bacteria can block the stem and stop the flowers taking up the water.unwrap. Flowers like their stems trimmed. So, trim them, at an angle with a knife (rather than scissors) by an inch or so. When trimming stems, always cut at an angle of roughly 45degrees; this increases the surface area allowing your flowers to absorb more water.
  • If a Rose starts to droop at the head, re-cut the stem, wrap the head in paper to support it upright and plunge 5cms of the stem into boiling water for about 30seconds. Cut the stem again and place in deep cold water for two hours.trim

Most orders are accompanied by a sachet of cut flower food which will encourage buds to open and help to prolong the life and beauty of your flowers. Top up regularly with water and flower food, removing any fading flowers. Ensure the floristry foam used in arrangements is moist and topped up daily; this helps to prolong the life and vibrancy of your arrangements.
