A BIT ABOUT US

Our History

The owner, Paula started the business About Flowers in January 2005.  With two children and a husband, the shop is very much family orientated business, both of the children work at the shop once a week after school to offer a helping hand and Paula's husband Jay often helps with deliveries when Joanne (also a relative), our excellent driver is off on her jollies.  

The shop has thrived on the personal touch and we enjoy serving customers who have kept loyal since the first year in 2005.  We have celebrated with families through weddings and christenings and mourned with them through the tough losses they have faced. We like to think that we are a member of the halton view community and like to help whenever we can.  

We believe in giving back to the community who serve us, and as a family like to help those less fortunate that us.  That is why we often offer our shop as a drop off point for charities such as the homeless.  Our chosen charities are Autisim and Down Syndrom focused ones.


Our Focus

While at the beginning we thrived off wedding work and became the number one florist for brides, the shop now has a different focus and we like to dedicate all of our time to gift bouquets, funeral flowers, memorial ornaments and handmade gifts.  We feel that although it was a brave decision to turn down wedding work, it does allow us the time needed to make sure that these designs are given the time and effort they deserve.   And, after a lot of hard work, we now offer a wide range of high quality handcrafted gifts.

Our Designs

It is our mission to make our flower shop the very best for value and design in our town and with that in mind, every bouquet of flowers that we send out has to be perfect.  We spend time and effort on researching the flowers that people like, the most popular colours and the most up to date wrapping and presentation so that you are getting something not only on trend, but good value and well received.  

And, when we introduce a new design to our flower menu, we take the effort to photograph it so that you know exactly what you will be getting.  Obviously there are always going to be slight differences due to the nature of design, but we don't hire fancy photographers, we don't use stock pictures because we like to keep everything as real as possible for you, the customer.


Our Menu

We work just like a restaurant and have a menu of designs from £3.50 bunches to £25 bouquets, each have a recipie that we follow ensuring that you get consistent value and design.  Because of this we have to keep a well balanced stock on our flower stand so that we can fill orders for our many designs our menu.  In general we don't sell from the stand, we ask you to choose one of our designs in order to maintain a good balance of available stock.


The Take Away Collection

We think it is important that when you come into the shop, you have a choice of bouquets to take away without having to wait around, so to that end, we have a take away collection that typically consists of bunches from £3.50 and bouquets from £15... We try to cater for all and include a range of colours and flower varieties.  Call in, you won't be disappointed.


Customer service

We pride ourselves on our great customer service and our attention to detail but obviously, we know that from time to time we might make a mistake or do something you may not like.  That is why we offer a no quibble return if there is something wrong with our flowers.  Like all retail items, we do need you to return the flowers, but never feel like we don't want to know... please don't vote with your feet.  If there is something we have done wrong, please tell us, if we don't know we can't fix it!! 

We are very approachable.....
