9th March 2010 - In Ireland and UK Mothers Day this year falls on Sunday March 14th.

People often wonder how the date Mothers Day falls on is determined in Ireland and the UK so here is the answer :  

In Ireland and the UK, Mothers Day always falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent.  So you might ask - when does Lent start? Well, Lent starts forty days before Easter Sunday. This begs the next question - how is it determined which date Easter Sunday falls. Well Easter Sunday always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Vernal Equinox (Vernal meaning Spring and Equinox roughly meaning night time is the same length as day time). Therefore as Mothers Day is calculated in Ireland and the UK by the date Easter Sunday falls,  the exact date changes date every year.

In many other countries - USA, Canada, Australia, India, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, Germany and Greece, Mothers Day always falls on the second Sunday in May (in 2010 this will be Sunday 9th May). Other countries use the first Sunday in May including Austria, Netherlands, Spain, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Portugal (in 2010 this will be 2nd May). Some other countries have their own unique variations ie Sweden which uses the last Sunday in May.

14 September 2009 - Our three shops now feature a new service - "So Simple - So Try It Yourself"

This service consists of a chosen flower arrangement which is displayed in our shops. You can view this arrangement and then buy all the necessary ingredients that go into assembling it. Included also are a set of detailed instructions and tips on how to assemble your arrangement. Free advice from professional florists is available and an appropriate vase may be purchased for the arrangement if needed.  

It enables people who always “fancied a go” at creating their own flower arrangements or indeed those who may have tried arranging flowers in the past without success, to learn from the experts and at the same time create their very own bespoke flower arrangement. 

The particular flower arrangement will vary from week to week. Some weeks the arrangement could be modern and structured whilst for other weeks it could be simple and free flowing. This will allow you to choose arrangements that match your own individual tastes or opt for an arrangement style for a particular occasion.

Costs are modest – our current featured arrangement is a modern sunflower arrangement @ €35.00. For more details please call into one of shops in Ranelagh, Dawson St. or Foxrock.

This enables people who may have tired looking planters due neglect or those who may lack “green fingers” to have a professional florist replace their faded flower displays.  

Flowers chosen may be co-ordinated to match a customers own specific requirements such as the season, their garden style, the décor of their house or indeed offices. The service can also include replacing soil and adding the correct mixtures of nutrients and plant foods.

The cost of this service is modest – from as little as €20.00 for an average sized window box. There is no charge for replanting the planter itself. The only charges are for the plants and any soil or plant food used.

Even if people don’t have their own planter we can supply this too with a newly introduced range of stylish terracotta, zinc and resin containers.

July 2008 - Blooming Amazing Flower Company could be the best florist in the country.

Two of our flower shops recently entered the 2008 Irish Flower Shop of The Year Awards. In round one of the competition both our shops on Dawson St. and in Foxrock were awarded a Silver Award of Excellence which entitles them both to enter the second stage of the event to compete for the coveted Gold Award.

For one of our shops to achieve this award is fantastic but for two of them to reach this level its just  amazing - only seven florists in Dublin have reached this stage - two of them are Blooming Amazing.

The Irish Flower Shop of The Year awards are the "Olympics" of the floristry industry. They are sponsored by the Flower Council of Holland and Oasis Floral Products. This prestigious award has a winner’s prize of an investment bursary worth €5,000.00.

To achieve the Silver Award both shops had to demonstrate knowledge, expertise and understanding in key areas including floristry skills, shop layout, customer service and business management.

We are looking forward to the next round when, with a lot of hard work and a just little luck, we might scoop that coveted Gold Award.
