People like us dream like this. Using peace, love, and flowers during 2017!

Beloved Flower Lover,

A lot has been going on in our lives and we are sure it has for you too. We thank you for allowing us to come into your life during 2016 and  enjoying the magic in our agenda. And as Seth Godin, says, “People like us, dream like this”. So we see you as family!

As you know, we at the London Flower Lover, use peace, love, and flowers to express the joy of who we are. We  share our stories along with pictures of flowers to perhaps provoke, perhaps just dream. And that will continue for 2017. So  perhaps this post is just to invite you to remember to go beyond being competent and instead to do what your dreams are telling you to do in 2017.


So where do we start.

Well we thought about imagining 2017. We thought about the fact that it might not work out the way you want it to. You know. In the mass market sort of way. It might work out very differently.

Imagine if you do not win the lottery and have no wind behind your back. Know you are still loved.

Imagine that you were not born with a silver spoon in your mouth and might not even get flowers, or even send them. Know you are still loved.

No, we are not letting anyone of the hook. We are not saying, do not focus on your goals. No that would not exciting. It will be a boring 2017, with no change. No, instead, we are inviting you to consider how to more deeply commit to your dreams.

Thats what we see for 2017. A  year where there is a deeper commitment to what you love. No shame if it’s weird, no oddness because you stretch yourself more than the others around you because you care so deeply. None of that.

  • no shame


you are not a fraud


do not be scared

no begging


Perhaps that is the focus on  in 2017.

It’s ok to screw up.

We are clear about that, so no hype for 2017. No pressure.

Perhaps, do something where you can be off the chart and be remarkable.  Or even create more connections between people, that create more and more value.Built into 2017 is the fact that there are no guarantees.

 And we say,

“people like us, do things like this”.

We are not just a bunch of interchangeable people who can be forgotten if you do not show up tomorrow. We are not just a bunch of people who go to school to learn just to be obedient- to fit in, so we can ignore them!- All Godin’s words not ours. We are people who care.

We are interested in a 2017 where we can  make a difference in our lives in  an artistic way. Not the museum way. But the art of doing something different. What ever way that might be.  And, the very fact that we have an internet connection often means we have more leverage than ever  before to connect through our art.We all want to be seen, heard, respected and loved. Why not make that part of the art of 2017. So when we think about 2017 we invite you to  figure out what we dream about.

Yes, dream, dream, dream about making things that we care about.Dream about your art. Not just being a cog, but making things that matter, that might be a bit weird to someone else, but comes from your heart.

At the London Flower Lover, we are dreaming of making designs that you have never seen before. That we have never seen before. We are looking forward to caring more about our dreams and using flowers to express that.

We  invite you to take more responsibility for designing more from the heart. To giving more credit to those who influence you and continue to share what you love. We admire our readers. We love how different you all are at  doing things. We love the connection.

In 2017, we are looking forward to looking at what we are scared of. And, we are looking forward to the things we ‘should’ say yes to and instead, just say yes to what’s needs to be expressed from our deepest hearts, using the flower, its branch, its bulb, its stem.

Thank you for coming back during 2016.

Good morning, it’s 2017.

We love you,

because people like us,

do things like this and  dream like this.

The Team,

The London Flower Lover

 p.s. For those who are feeling that the tide is out in your industry. That it is going through a state of flux, we would like to remind you that, it does not mean there is no water. It just means that there is  a shift in the market place. Perhaps as a famous person once said, it is instead an invitation to connect to the art of the real joy in the heart.

That’s the value of 2017.

Love you-thank you for your attention-thank you!




About Thelondonflowerlover

Welcome to The London Flower Lover. We are florists who create floral collections to tell your real life story. With colour and texture, we take floristry into an entirely new direction based on the challenges and joys of your life. Offering what we call 'heart based floristry' we use style, fashion, and life situations and merge them with heart based lifestyle support. This inspiring blend creates so much more for those who love flowers. Using flowers in the traditional way of course, but always using flowers to open up a floralicious conversation about relationships of all kinds. We are a sort of work in progress of compassionately confirming how we are already on the inside, the love we want to see out in the world. That is mission of The London Flower Lover. So saying yes to recognising that is at the heart of this blog and using flowers to honour that inner world is how we use the beauty of giving and receiving flowers. This blog is your blog. It's as much about cultivating your heart, as it is about enjoying the physical beauty of flowers. It offers story, poems and video to reflect the life you actually live whilst showing beautifully inspiring collections of flower designs. Hand-tied bouquets, arrangements and more. All this with sought after tips from well established experts on how to keep a happy heart. This is what makes The London Flower Lover unique and magical. Yes, and that's how we make the difference that we do. When life looks, feels, or sounds challenging, we offer a sanctuary that you may dip into. A well of refreshment and strength that you may draw from. Sharing what others have found to be successful ways of being happy in the face of challenges, whilst letting flowers do the talking when we have no other way to interpret what is going on. Use flowers to help you re-discover, reveal and remember how you can still be despite challenges. Use flowers to celebrate and to embody the possibility of your heart felt desire, fulfilled. Use flowers in your life, to remind you of the beauty of your life. Use The London Flower Lover today. We invite you to stay curious in this floral universe as you explore the love in the heart.
