Amazing news. Flowers With Passion has made it into the Good Florist Guide. It is the gold standard of floristry and the only merit-based guide to the finest florists in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Acknowledged as the ‘little black book’ of the very best British and Irish florists. Carl and I are over the moon to have been accepted. It proves that all our hard work and determination is paying off. We are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers so it is wonderful to have this recognised.
To be part of GFG, we had to pass a rigorous evaluation process. The judges needed a detailed description of the business, including flowers and plants available and services offered as well as images of the shop, our work, our team and even the van! It was then vetted by a panel of industry experts to ensure it met the strict criteria of not just offering gorgeous designs, but also the best service and value for bespoke floristry and flowers.
With a score of 42 out of 50, one of the highest in that round of applications apparently we really impressed the judges. One panelist said: “Sara is clearly an accomplished florist, her competition pieces look fantastic”.
There are only six florists from Lancashire in the Guide at the moment so its an amazing feeling to be able to say we're the best in the area and certainly the best in the Ribble Valley.
