Well. I guess we half expected another lockdown, but the reality of it feels heavy, don't you think? It's another blow to the couples planning to marry, it's another blow to small businesses and in "the bleak mid winter", it can feel like it's never going to end.
So, with that in mind, The Blossom Parlour is bringing you the best flowers, collaborations and small business recommendations so that, if you celebrate Valentine's Day, you know exactly where to go! If you don't usually celebrate, maybe this year you might choose to, just to break up the monotony of lockdown, round 3! Settle down with a glass of your favourite, snack and note pad so you can do a little bit of shopping with TBP Valentine's Day gift edit.
The Blossom Parlour has a collection of bouquets for you to choose from this Valentine's Day. But as always, if you have something in mind, drop me and email and I'll be happy to help. This year's edit is named after the characters from Bridgerton - we all know how much I love a period drama, and my obsession with Bath, where they filmed is, is still strong! These bouquets are all available to purchase via the web shop.
The Blossom Parlour has teamed up with some of the loveliest businesses in Weston to offer some great Valentine's Day treats!
Cumin Alive is a great Authentic Indian Street Food take away and is serving a 5 course dinner for you to have at home. You can book your "finish at home and pretend you made it from scratch" dinner, and ask for a bouquet to be added to the delivery - one call, one delivery, everything you need for a cosy night in! Book via Facebook - click the link!
The Vaults is run by Luci, and with pubs having to close, she has become a great off license! She has some great gifts which you can purchase along with a bunch of TBP finest. You can order directly from her by getting in touch via facebook - click here!
Fig and Flour is a grazing platter extraordinaire - have a look at the food porn on instagram! Sophie has curated a selection of goodies for you to munch on this Valentine's Day, and the "Hers" box can be purchased alongside the Daphne Bouquet on the web shop, the perfect treat for foodie and flower lovers.
