Crabtree & Evelyn is renowned and respected for its original fragrances, fine foods and gorgeous gifts, all beautifully packaged to transform the ordinary rituals of daily life into extraordinary pleasurable experiences.
We are thrilled to be suppliers to the prestigious Crabtree & Evelyn on many occasions. A recent commission was the supply of green hydrangeas for point of sale displays. Small scatter flowers were required and we were more than happy to cut the hydrangeas to instruction, count and bag in required amounts before shipping to their central distribution hub. Lots of blistered fingers but all in a days work :)
Check out our roses in Ralph Lauren's London flagship store! How impressive do they look?
We are absolutely thrilled to be the preferred supplier to Lathams of Broughton for the flowers for their Mother's Day Cakes. We think you'll agree they look delicious!!!
Quote from Lathams ...................
We are a family business started by Gwen Latham over thirty years ago, producing an extensive range of high quality indulgent desserts, cakes and biscuits.
We supply many reputable restaurants and eating establishments in and around Lancashire and South Cumbria from our purpose built "state of the art" bakery production facility in Preston. We also have two retail outlets, one just opened this year, (2013), adjoined to our main bakery on Caxton Road, Fulwood and the other just south of Preston at Hutton.
We are proud of our team as they are committed to providing our customers with the best possible products. Many have been with us for over 20 years learning their trade directly from Mrs Latham, maintaining and passing these skills to incoming generations.
Summer has finally arrived and nowhere more so than in Selfridges 2013
We were thrilled to supply Next Retail with thousands of stems of cherry blossom to build the trees for their Spring 2013 window displays and even more delighted when we were told the windows had been so well received that they are planning to roll the windows on until summer.
What a way to bring in the new year! We were thrilled to supply the flowers for Red Magazine's January 2013 cover shoot with Nigella Lawson.
Thousands of roses were used to create walls of flowers for the backdrop. Stylist, Beatrice Hurst, was so thrilled with the end result that she couldn't allow the 'walls' to be disposed of and she now has three rose walls in her own bedroom :)
DECOFLORA HAVE BEEN REALLY EXCITED TO SUPPLY ITV'S NEW SERIES OF POPSTAR TO OPERASTAR WITH IVY GARLANDS, WISTERIA, PEONIES AND ROSES FOR THEIR BEAUTIFULLY ELABORATE STAGE SETS. THANK YOU ITV FOR THE PRIVILEGE
By far one of our most exciting requests came from Larmac Live three days before the filming of the Help the Heroes fundraising performance on the 2011 X Factor stage. They need a stage full of flowers (thousands of stems!) in double quick time. Our wonderful suppliers rallied round and drop shipped for us on a next day delivery service.
Our only regret is that in the excitement we forgot to ask for images and screenshots!
See our flowers on set at The Alan Titchmarsh Show weekdays on ITV1 at 3pm.
We were thrilled to be chosen by the UK's foremost gardening expert, and housewives favourite, to supply the flowers for the entire series of 60 episodes. What an accolade!

Imagine our delight when asked to assist them with their 'Rule Britannia' campaign to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics.
We manufactured hundreds of red, white and blue rose posies to display in the windows and shop floor counters in each of their Goldsmiths high street stores.
The windows above were designed by a a British sculptist called Marc Quinn, who has also installed a giant bronze orchid of his in one of Selfridges larger windows
Two of the wonderfully retro windows designed for HRH Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee celebrations. Decoflora were delighted to source and supply a suitable range of artificial fruit, ornamental cabbages, artificial plants and silk flowers to complete the designs.
