WHO WE ARE
Curators of bright and beautiful plastic free florals for Shaftesbury, Dorset.
Bright Blooms is a quirky little florists’ shop filled with beautiful flowers, foliage, unusual houseplants and small gifts (many of which are sourced from independent businesses locally and from around the country).
Proud to be Plastic Free
Our Bouquets and Posies now are free from single use plastic. Previously a Bouquet would come with a cellophane bubble of water in a gift box. We have made a conscious effort to stop the use of cellophane at Bright Blooms. Our Bouquets are now available in a gift box bag (which is a great reusable gift bag) and instead of cellophane we are now offering you a glass vase with the same tissue paper to hold the vase securely.
Instead of a plastic card holder that would be placed inside the bouquet we are now using a small wooden peg to hold your gift card in place. Previously we would use a plastic sticker to show off our logo and contact information, we now have a logo ink stamper which we will be using with pride! Whenever possible we love doing walkable deliveries too.
There is still a long way to go with the amount of single use plastic in the floristry industry but we are so proud of how we have been able to make more environmentally friendly swaps whilst still maintaining the same standards of our beautiful arrangements.
Meet the Team
Behind our yellow door you will find a friendly team of plant-mad florists.
My love for floristry came a little bit later in life but I have always been attracted to anything colourful and creative. I thought I would try my hand at it and dived straight in to Level 2 Floristry and never imagined I would carry on all the way to accomplish Level 4 (The Higher Diploma in Professional Floristry)!
My personality is definitely represented in my floral bouquets; loud, colourful and bold (but I also know how gorgeous pastels can be and love to play around with colour palettes)! I love all flowers but to me the weirder the more wonderful! I love showing people the quirky side of nature through my flower and plant choices and you may have noticed Bright Blooms has become a bit of plant paradise!
Meet Lily, our fully qualified level 2 and 3 florist. Lily started her journey at Bright Blooms working one day a week whilst studying floristry at Kingston Maurward.
Since then Lily has become an integral part of the team and our full time florist. Lily excels at creating our beautiful detailed work (especially during wedding season) and making our gorgeous dried flower wreaths and arrangements.
Meet Annie, a talented and qualified florist, who has an experience of running a floristry shop, planning and setting up weddings and every aspect of the trade.
Annie has recently ventured into the lifestyle of a freelance florist, she’s always learning new things and regularly works with the Bright Blooms team. You can always recognise an Annie design; natural, romantic and beautiful.
Sheryn (nicknamed Shabs) is my wonderful Mum. The lady who encouraged me to take on Bright Blooms, I couldn’t thank her enough for her support.
You will often see her making the deliveries, serving customers, hunting for vintage props (or a bargain!) and always extending her plant knowledge to those who visit the shop.
