About-Let’s start with our why!


We have been thinking more about why we do what we do and found this great video by Simon Sinek who talks about why. We want to share that before we talk about why we do what we do this.


The London Flower is all about you ‘Loving Flowers in a modern, creative practical way’. It’s all about feeling the difference that flowers make in peoples lives.



Because of that, we end up dealing with what people love the most. People, their business, their talents, their achievements, their families, themselves. We may be asked by a couple to create flowers for their daughters wedding to send out a clear message of pride and love, and then be asked to create reception flowers for a spa to create a feeling of peace and tranquility. Either way, we make a difference by listening closely and delivering.

This blog has been fun as we reflect on the fact that we often get to hear about sensitive  relationships and get asked about what they most  want to say through flowers.  We are very discrete as we consider that  often love, either in terms of romance, admiration, appreciation, sympathy or some other expression of love comes up over and over again.

We also talk about the traditional flower giving times, like weddings, birthdays and so on and offer tips, suggestions and more.

That’s the  difference we make, bringing our listening ear, creativity and matching it to what our clients wants to say using  flowers.

The team

The London Flower Lover

    I love finding others who love flowers just as much as I do. I work at a flower shop and I never get tired of it. I find I am happiest surrounded by colour and beauty…and when I get a chance to share my love for flowers/plants with others. It makes me so happy to be able to be creative every day, and to be able to use my creativity to bring happiness to others!! Flowers mean so much to me!! This blog is great!


  5. this is weird because i was reading about flowers a while ago,in a random artcle,
    then i have been buying myself flowers for the past two months and decided to make potpourri and hang dried some of it but i dont know where to start with the dried flower arrangements.. since i think its such a shame to throw them away… 🙂
    something about flowers are enlightening ….oh ..
    thanks anyway for following me… i think you are a confirmation … 🙂

    have a great day.

    you have a wonderful “flower-blog” – I like your blogposts; they are very informative and interesting! Flowers are the beauty of nature – I love to take pictures of them. One flower speaks thousand words … it´s so pitty, that we can not understand each word of them …

    Greetings from Germany,

    • Hey Randy, gosh we feel your geninue comment. You remind us of the infinite love and gratitude for living with intention, using flowers to express the power of the love in our hearts. Thank you for getting what we are doing here.

      Oooohhhhhhhhhh we so receive what you are sharing….

      You have moved us to thank you deeply….so here goes….

      Thank you so much.

      Chest uplifted, head upwards, arms stretched out, smiling from ear to ear, we welcome feeling the infinite universe of love in our hearts. This includes the force of beauty that we receive from flowers, as they reminds us of emotions, the energy of receiving love, appreciation, peace and passion.

      Expressing emotions with an understanding of who we really are always leaves us refreshed. And sometimes receiving them from someone who remembers who we are when we forget our true selves is what keeps us fuelled in love. Yes, many of us re embrace the feeling that.

      Receiving that empowering love can also allow us to process our own range of emotions. Flowers therefore can act almost as a lifeline when we are reminded that we can processes our emotions. Flowers can help us to give ourselves permission to tune into more of the infinite space within our conscious spirits, where we see ourselves shine in ways we are made to and destined to. Flowers can then really help shift emotional patterns and therefore become a form of coaching which helps us to transform and evolve.

      Thank you for enjoying what we do with flowers. It’s our infinite pleasure to receive you and. Yes we are smiling from ear to ear….thank you again for popping by and expressing your gratitude.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Recently I have found flowers comforting. My husband buys me flowers often and when they wither I don’t throw them away, I gently take out the petals and I have a special bowl for them. Comforts me looking at them even in their withered state.
