2015.... a look back

2015 was quite a year for us, we opened the shop late 2014, and things have gone from there !
We love being at 9 Brunswick Road in Penrith, surrounded by other lovely independent businesses, friends, neighbours, the big sweet chestnut tree, Teds school and the shop robin.
2015 was none stop with around 90 weddings travelling all over Cumbria and further afield  and seeing some lovely Churches and venues and meeting brides, grooms and their families  Styles of flowers have varied with many colours and styles and each one being different.
Whilst on our travels it been great to see some beautiful venues and work alongside other talented suppliers such as photographers, hair dressers, make up artists and dress makers who work you can see alongside my flowers on the photos on the website.
 I've also been able to source a British Flower wholesaler via #BritishFlowersHour on Twitter and taken part in British Flower Week! 
Funerals have taken an increasing part of the business which I have found very rewarding to include as much as I can about the person in the flowers.
 In summer I started to supply Westmorland Services and the cafes in Rheghed with flowers which can lead to very busy Friday's and early starts on a Monday !
In the cafe we have increased our menu with light lunches and good selection for vegetarians and those with food intolerance s and have found some brilliant local bakers to help us. We ran a pop up restaurant in Maulds Meaburn Village Hall and in January are having a three night pop up restaurant in the shop with more dates to come in March. We have also been doing regular lunchtime buffets. 
So keep an eye out on Facebook - Greenwheat Florist and Fika or Twitter @GWFlowers to see what we're up to.

  1. Everything looks outstanding in this party. Food, decoration, services and everything is simply amazing. Loved this party a lot! Would like to host such an interesting pre-party on my sister’s wedding. She has booked one of Chicago wedding venues and going to help her.
