Tuesday 8th June 2021
June has been busy busy busy here at Penelope Flowers, with us allowed to do hen parties again, we have welcomed a few hen parties back already to our BRAND NEW upstairs workshop space!
Weddings are also all go, which is wonderful to see. We have already been at some stunning locations setting up and delivering for our Bride's and Groom's special days!
Things really feel like they are getting back to normal! We are just prepping to announce our workshops starting up again for this year, starting in September. Everyone seems to be excited to get back in for these.
We are settling in well to our new surroundings here at Unit 8, and our customers all seem to love it!! If we all don't leave here with pampas fluff somewhere on us, we mustn't be working hard enough!
We have large pampas grass, plant and cut flower selection daily.
We also have some new bouquets available to order via our website, app, over the phone or as always, in store.
If you haven't checked out our app, be sure to get it downloaded, as soon we will be starting our loyalty point scheme, which is used via the app. It is available on iOS and android.
See you all soon,

Well, well, well.....
Things have been a little bit unusual for some time now. But we are hopefully nearing the end!
Last year we shut our doors on 23rd March, they day after a manic mother's day. There was so much uncertainty as to what was going to happen, or how things would play out.
After 5 weeks, we came in to work behind closed doors on a strict contactless delivery only basis. You, our lovely customers needed your flowers fixes. And we didn't want to disappoint. Finally at Christmas we were allowed to do a little bit more before having to close the doors again and work behind the glass.
But now.... Finally! We can welcome you all back inside!
And Penny being penny..... we are back, bigger and better than ever!
We have moved across the square to the old Zamba unit. We first looked at the unit back in November, then really got stuck into our renovations in January/February time. I am sure you can all agree that we have been hard at work to transform this unit into what we wanted. We are dubbing it "Penelope Flowers 2.0".
It was wonderful that all members of staff had input into the new unit and how it would look overall, which just means that we are ALL so proud of what we have achieved with it.
On Friday we got to open our doors and show off all our hard work, and get to see our wonderful customers again, I believe i even seen some prossecco about!
If you haven't got down to see our new unit yet, we cannot wait to have you. And for those that have, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we do everyday!
We still have some more things up our sleeve, so stay tuned on our social media for some juicy sneak peeks!
But for now, its time to get back to work.
