Welcome to Chic Blooms – Artificial Silk Flowers


It’s nearly been a whole year since we first opened our doors here in the Crown Glass Shopping Centre, Nailsea near Bristol. Today we’d like to welcome Lisa from Chic Blooms and wish her all the very best in her new venture. I popped along to speak to Lisa to find out a bit more about her artificial wedding flowers and silk floral arrangements.


Q: How and why did Chic Blooms come about?

Chic Blooms established two years ago, started as a hobby from home creating vaious silk floral arrangements.  Having recieved lovely positive compliments and orders from family and friends gave me the inspiration to start selling to the public online in the UK and worlwide.I have steadily grown busier over the past two years creating resin water displays to bridal bouquets and table arrangements and decided to make a positive move to look for a shop to display all my floral creations. I was very lucky to be able to find a shop suitable at Crown Glass Shopping Centre, Colliers Walk, Nailsea where I started trading May 2017.


Q: What are the advantages of having silk wedding flowers instead of real flowers?

Many years ago Silk Flowers looked so unrealistic and was made of plastic but now have come a very long way to looking attractive and very life like with the advantage of not dieing like real flowers. I will only purchase quality silk flowers that will not fade or attract dust and with many hayfever sufferers this is a great advantage to my customers.


Q: Are you able to match your flowers to the colour scheme of the wedding and what do you need to do this?

I can match any colour and style silk flowers and arrangements for future Brides and Grooms to suit your wedding theme.


Q: How long does it normally take you to make a bouquet and how long would you suggest couples order before their wedding?

Bridal, Bridesmaidand Flower Girl bouquets, Buttonholes for the groom, corsages and table displays will be created and ready for collection within two weeks of placing the order, however I would advise you to order two months prior your wedding day.



Q: What can Brides & Grooms expect when they come to Chic Blooms for their wedding flowers?

I offer a free consultation with the option to pay monthly installments with a small deposit making it easier for you as weddings can be very costly.

With my expertise and creative skills you will endear a stress free experience leading up to your special day.


Q: What’s your biggest achievement to date? (Doesn’t have to wedding or flower related).

My biggest acheivement is being lucky enough to be able to come to work and enjoy what I do, plus having the advantage of bringing a smile to all my customers and perhaps in the future I would like to expand and have the opportunity to employ future staff.

Well that’s it for another wedding chat round up. Hope enjoyed what we brought you and look forward to helping you along with your wedding planning journey!







Brides to Be are getting into full swing with their wedding planning now for the 2016 wedding season, so we thought we’d take another look at wedding flowers and speak to our good friend Claire Denise from Sister Sister Bouquets to get some more advice. Here’s what she had to say;


Q: What are the main advantages of choosing artificial flowers for your wedding?

Not many items from your wedding day can be kept for a lifetime your dress could get tucked away in the loft, the cake gets eaten but your wedding bouquet can be cherished as a keepsake for a lifetime after your wedding our bouquets display lovley in your home, we have had some brides give them to a family member. Secondly is the cost we know how expensive weddings can be so every saving helps.


Q: Many Brides are overwhelmed by the whole planning experience. How would you suggest they start when it comes to flowers?

You may have an idea in your mind what you would like your flower to look like send your florist pictures or flower types that you like from what you have seen from maybe magazines or mood boards such as the ones on Moonrise. The great thing with artificial flowers we don’t have to have the discussion around what flowers are in season.


Q: Sister Sister Bouquets is a family business with customer service at it’s core. Remind us what Brides can expect when they choose Sister Sister Bouquets for their Wedding.

We treat all our clients how we would expect to be treated, from first communication we are friendly, helpful & professional not to forget our 100 % 5 star rating from all our previous clients.


Q: What was your most favourite floral design of 2015 and why?

Its so hard to choose I think it has to be the Steffany Bouquet blush pink really started to trend for Summer 2015 / 2016 I think this bouquet is one of our most natural looking bridal bouquets. One bride actually got asked would she like her bouquet stored in the fridge to keep fresh!


Q: What do you think will be popular colours for the 2016 wedding season?

Pastels is going to be popular I think for the 1st half of the year I personally think if you have chosen different colour dresses for your bridesmaids a simple ivory/white posey makes the perfect complement to the pastel shades.  I think for the later half dusky pinks/ Vintage purples will be very popular.


Q: Will you be setting any New Years resolustions? & What will they be?

Not really a new years resolutions but we do have goals set for 2016 season we want to appear in larger wedding fairs to give more brides & grooms chance to see our bouquets in the flesh & we also want to launch our hire range! very exciting year ahead.

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading & keep following next week.





It’s been a little while since we looked at some wedding flowers, so today I’d like to introduce Graceful Wedding Flowers. A relatively new little business specialising in artificial floral displays, which are becoming ever more popular due to the fact that you can keep them as a memento of your day. If you don’t throw them for your Bridesmaids!

Q: Tell us a little more about Graceful Wedding Flowers. How you started and how long you’ve been going.

I’m a new business I’ve been making bouquets for just over a year it all started from when my daughter got married I made all her wedding bouquets etc and I got a lot of lovely compliments so its spiralled from then now my business has been very successful. I specialise in mostly foam fabric flowers that are realistic with accessories. I’m 100% committed to working with brides.


Q: What advice can you give our Brides to Be when it comes to choosing flowers for their wedding day?

I try to give advice to brides on suggesting what type of flower and colour that would match their colour theme, and also make brides happy with what I have made for them.


Q: What can Brides expect to get when they come to Graceful Wedding Flowers & what makes you stand out from other wedding florists?

I want to make my bouquets as natural looking as possible. I take a lot of time making and designing the bouquets and an excellent service is the heart of my business.


Q: When would you advise Brides to be getting their wedding flowers booked and can you suggest a typical budget?

I would recommend at least 6_8 months before your wedding day. I like to keep my packages as affordable as I know how much weddings can cost. My bridal bouquets start from £27 upwards.


Q: What has been your biggest achievement to date? (Doesn’t have to be wedding related)

There is no better feeling than knowing that I have made someone happy when you see photos of brides with the flowers I’ve made and also receiving positive feedback and lovely comments.


Q: What does the future have in store for Graceful Wedding Flowers? Do you have any offers on you’d like us to share?

Graceful wedding flowers will continue making bouquets and making brides to be happy and always I’m keen to try new ideas and new designs.
