Christmas Opening Times 2017

We will be open the next two Sundays 10am till 1pm if you want to pop in and see us. Plenty of Holly wreaths and crosses at the moment; however we suggest if you need them closer to Christmas especially collections after Tuesday 19th December you place an order as they sell out quickly. Once they are gone they are gone !! We are delivering right up until Christmas although it will be local orders only on Christmas Eve. We will close at midday on Christmas Eve this year  and will re open with fresh flowers and business as usual on Tuesday 2nd January 2018. Business during Christmas and New Year will be limited because of how little stock we may have left after the busy period.

Holly and Spruce Wreaths

Holly and spruce wreaths of all shapes and sizes will be available from the end of this month. Place your order should you wish to collect them Christmas week as we tend to run out early and can not always guarantee what will be left and we hate our customer being disappointed.

Autumn is here !!

The flowers and foliages are changing now to reflect the onset of Autumn.

Is This Summer?

With this really warm weather and the bank holiday fast approaching do you think this could be our summer??? 

Bank Holiday Approaching

There are several bank holidays approaching both here and in Holland, the dutch ones will affect our flower orderung but not affect you....we will make sure we are carrying our usual lovely varieties of flowers and plants for you. The Whitsun bank holiday is Monday 29th May and our shop willbe closed, accept for 30 minutes or so at around 9am for a special collection of flowers. So if you do forget and need anything you have a 30 minute window to catch me.......after that I am spending the day with my family xx

What's Happening.....

We are currently half way through altering the shelving in the shop, going a bit more rustic with crates etc. The next step is to get new flooring.....those of you who visit us may have noticed parts of the floor hidden under mats......its cracking up, bit like me !!!!!! Its a work in progress, lovely as it would be to get it all done its a matter of working hard, earning some money and doing a bit at a time. We will get there...

Updated Wedding Flowers Info

We have just updated our wedding photo's, we are still chasing as many of our Bride and Grooms as we can for pics so please if you can let us have some we would be grateful. Obviously the pictures are a guideline as is the guide prices....it differs from each and every wedding so we tailor make your flowers to suit you. Tailor made doesn't mean it costs more either, it means you get what you want and a price you can afford. Have a look, all our pictures are our own work, either by myself or a member of our team

Bank Holiday UK

Just a quick note regarding our Bank Holidays here in the UK. We close on bank holidays, Easter bank holiday we close for to days because we don't have Good Friday so we have Tuesday instead. Any bank holiday means our fresh flowers are delivered a day later than usual, this then affects how soon we can resume business as usual.... our webshop is set up to take this into account. So unfortunately if our webshop is telling you we can not deliver until a certain day then I am afraid there is very little we can do....we never deliver old flowers!! 

Wedding Flowers

We love a good wedding at Roses Florist, we pride ourselves on tailor making every buquet for each of our Brides. No two are ever the same and we love the fact that we can make something different for each of them. So if your looking for flowers for your special day and want a professional florist to help create the flowers you want get in touch 0121 366 7226        

Soon be Easter

Roses Florist will be open as usual on the run up to Easter, we open Good Friday all day and have Tuesday after Bank holiday Monday off instead. So our Easter opening hours this year will see us closed Sunday 16th April, Monday 17th April and Tuesday 18th April; opeing for business as usual on Wednesday 19th April when the fresh flowers arrive. In the meantitme don't hesitate to contact us if we can help you 0121 366 7226.

Wedding Enquiries 2017-18

    Love it when we get some professional wedding pictures.

Valentines Day 2017

Use a local florist this Valentines Day.....yes the supermarkets will do 50 roses at an amazing price but they will be tiny, they may not last long and they won't be made with the care and attention that your florist makes theirs with. By shopping local you will be supporting a local business. Many local florists are happy to find you a florist in another area, they may well know them and buying direct from the florist means you will pay for your flowers and delivery.....no hidden charges, no admin fees...............and the florist will get all of the money ( this doesn't happen with relay services) you will also be speaking to the florist who will make your flowers up, so they can tell you exactly what to expect, best value for money etc.  If you do Google a florist, don't go straight to the first name on the top of the page, relay service pay to be there, they pretend to be local !! Scroll down you will find a list of shops, usually under the first 3 or 4 companies listed......they will show you where they are, picture of the business and their reviews....use one of them . Shop wisely and score brownie points this Valentines Day

Valentines Day 2017

Three weeks until Valentines Day, its on a Tuesday this year so place your order............we can deliver to work if you really want to score brownie points, all those jealous work colleagues  and your loved one the centre of attention with their beautiful flowers. Check out our Valentines Day selection.....http://www.rosesfloristsonline.com/shop/Valentines_Day.aspx   

Happy New Year

We would like to wish all of our customers, new and old, local, national and around the world a happy new year. Stay safe and thank you for your continued support. Have a happy and healthy 2017.

Christmas and New Year Opening Hours

We are open everyday now rightup until Christmas Eve when we will close at 1pm. Between Christmas and New Year we will be closed, flowers are in limited supply and although we will be in for a few hours here and there to complete a wedding order this is usually a quiet time of year for us and we take the opportinuty to spend time with our families.....we hope you understand. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our lovely customers a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. If you do need us during the holiday period please contact us via the website or Facebook and we will get straight back to you.

Christmas At Roses Florist 2016

We pride ourselves on our superb range of cut flowers, foliage and plants, bulbs. As we approach Christmas we also provide a wide variety of wreaths, both for decoration and for memorial from as little as £6.95. Because we only offer the very best grade cut flowers this means you can be sure of the very best quality, this is also the reason we close for the week between Christmas and New Year as supplies of cut flowers are limited. It also gives us the chance to re charge our batteries and spend time with our families. We can still be contacted via our Facebook page and email, or via the web site contact page. We do take orders for over the Christmas period and we do have a wedding during this time this year so please don't think we are not available if there is anything you need.

Flower Prices

Flower prices have been gradually increasing over the last few weeks and it looks as if this will continue, its a combination of several things....none of which you may care about but non the less it affects our retail prices. We are trying to maintain our usual high quality, varied offerings of cut flowers and foliages it just means you may see spme unusual flowers or a different variety of something....we are doing our best to buy carefully and thus avoid having to put prices up. How ever this does affect prices for Wedding flowers and this is taken into consideration with any quotes. Seasonal flowers will still give you the best value for money but please be mindful that all flowers and foliage will start to rise in price as we creep into November and then Christmas.

Part of our job is making sure our customers get the very best for their loved ones when they have to say a final goodbye, we do take great pride in creating exactly what is required.......

Unique Bespoke Designs

I've always said I would rather do Wedding Flowers than Funerals any day, but it comes with the job and over the years I have made many items for everyones loved ones, including my own and it is always an honour to be chosen to make something so special for someones final farewell. This design was totallyunique, was lovely but very sad to create someones thoughts and ideas around a personal item for their loved one.

Chelsea Flower Show

So this week is Chelsea Flower Show, its a huge event in the Florist and Horticulture calendar and I need to find time to go again in the next few years....its amazing. But GOOD LUCK to all my floristry friends who are competing and to anyone and everyone competing and showing your products and therefor your skill. Your all amazing xx

Latest Google Review

We recently married at Fairlawns Hotel in Aldridge and employed Roses florist to help us make the day and the venue as beautiful as it could be. Wow did they (she, Becky) deliver. Everything was magnificent and inspiring with the way she listened to our wishes and granted them in the best floral display I've seen. The room was exceptionally well presented both for the civil ceremony and the Wedding Breakfast, actually better than I could have ever hoped for and even the staff at the hotel commented the same. The promises timings delivery and whole experience in dealing with such a true professional was first class throughout. Everything from the buttonholes the bouquets the pedestal arrangements and table centerpieces were truly exceptional and we cannot thank Roses florists enough for treating the wedding as if it were for one of their own. Don't even hesitate I can recommend this florist above all others. SJones April 2016

First Bank Holiday Of 2016

Its almost here? The first bank holiday of 2016, Easter weekend..........regardless of the weather have a good one. 

Easter is around the corner

Easter is just two weeks away, Sunday 27th March is Easer Sunday its also the start of British summer time so remember the clocks go forward that weekend.....Yeh, lighter nights,longer days . We are open on Good Friday but we close on Easter Monday and Tuesday. Saturday we are open as usual. First bank holiday of the year lets hope we have some lovely weather.

Thank you

Big, big thank you to everyone who supported not only us but every real florist across the UK this Mothers Day. Us little Independents are fighting back against the orer gatherers who give flowers a bad name. We have sent out more deliveries than ever this year from our little shop.........not one complaint...perhaps Moonpig should stick to cards lol

Just over a week until Mothers Day !!

Mothers Day is early this year , Sunday 6th March so we're seeing a lotof folk already thinking they have loads of time to order their flowers for Mom !!! Its just over a week away ..............bit of advice, International Womens Day is WednesdY 9th March and I know we don't celebrate it so much here in the UK ( we should, would be lovely if we did) it will affect  flower pricesI'm afraid and there is nothing the florist can do about it :( So we're suggesting that you let us choose the best value for money for you, steer clear of pink and let us do you something fabulous whatever your budget. 

Wedding flowers

Its been a busy week coming out of Valentines and this weekend a wedding at the beautiful Hoars Cross Hotal and Spa for the lovely Maddie and Matt.

Mothers Day

So this year Mothers Day is 3 weeks after Valentines Day, so we now find ourselves quickley switching from red roses to all many of pretti variations of flowers.....ready to cater for everyones Moms on Sunday 6th Marc. So don't forget to get your order in and get yourselves organised 

Some of our recent designs

Busy week ahead, quickley followed by a quick change and straight into the run up for Mothers Day 2016 !! So here are just a few of last weeks designs

Valentines Day 2015

We will be open Sundy 14th February, 10am till 2pm. We are delivering and will be open for collections. With all the adverts about at the minute showing cheap dozens of red roses for £25 or less in some cases it is worth remembering that they will probably be very short stemmed, 40cm with small rose heads....thats if they arrive on time !! So remember you might pay a little bit more shopping at your local florist but can be assured of the very best, large headed rose with a stem length of at least 60cm long.

It is always lovely to be asked to create something special for anyone but even more so when it is for a final farewell. We are so proud of our growing  album of bespoke tributes, its not a part of this job  we enjoy but to know we have made something thats means such a lot to those sending it; It is always an honour.

Make the most of any last minute sunshine because Christmas is just around the corner !!! eek

The Mallard Steam Train

 This weeks challenge, to re create The Mallard Steam Train. Such a privilage to be asked to make something so special and personal for their loved one.

Something different and gaining popularity at the minute, how about a succulent or two ??

Recent Weddings

       Tracey and Marcel were recently married at The Fazeley Studios in Birmingham, photgraphs by John Charlton. We created this unique bouquet for Tracey as well as the accomapnying table decorations

Seasonal Flowers

We often get asked for 'Whats in season?' its especially common when folk enquire about wedding flowers and as we go from one season to the next each one has its own unique traits. Colours change to pastel, subtle shades in the Spring/Summer whereas Autumn/Winter tends to show us darker, richer colours. Many cut flowers are avaiable all year round now but we still have flowers which are of better quality during their natural growing season, there are also  a few flowers which are only available at certain times of the year. 

Greyhound Tribute

 This tribute was made last week on a 3ft x 2ft base, thats pretty big of a racing greyhound for someone who loved the dogs

Bespoke Tributes

We never know what we will be asked to make some weeks, this week we have two weddings, last week we were asked to make some unusual funeral tributes

End of Term 2015

We are really busy making gifts for teachers, schools and all such things !! Its all happening, but we would like to wish all our little customers a happy summer holiday, stay safe and enjoy yourselves. We have watched so many of you grow up over the last few years, makes me feel old .........but its lovely to see what lovely young men and ladies you are all becoming. Those of you moving in to new schools and sixth form ...Good Luck and follow your dreams    Lets hope we have some sunshine for the summer hols See you in September.

We are open as usual throughout the summer we have plenty of weddings to keep us out of mischief and planty of birthday bouquets, anniversaries etc Unfortunately we don't get a summer break :( so call us if you need anything flowery

Work Experience

This week we are joined by a lovely young lady from Saint Paul's School, Edgbaston who will be with us for 10 days. We've had fun, worked hard, had a really mad busy day followed by a very relaxed day !! I did warn her no two days were the same

Glenmead School's Got Talent !!

Last night I was asked to be a judge at one of our local primary school's talent night. What a pleasure, what a lovely evening and how talented is everyone at Glenmead School. It was lovely to see so many proud parents supporting their children, so many children enjoying themselves and being totally awesome. It was an honour and a pleasure to be asked and I got to meet local celebrity Bob the Loliipop man as well as the very talented and lovely Letitia George.

Heat Wave !!

Its a bit hot !!!  All our flowers are inside, in the cool so don't be scared to pop in and have a look . This weather will melt the flowers if we put them outside so please take the time to come in and have a look. We have a usual beautiful selection.

Last weeks wedding flowers

So pleased with last weeks wedding bouquets, the colours and the style will not suit everyone's taste but they just worked so well for our Bride. Two more weddings this week and totally different again. Just love all our Brides and Grooms x

Roses Florist This Week...

We've had another really busy week everything from birthdays and christenings to funerals and weddings. Its such a mix of emotions from one moment to the next but we wouldn't change it  for the world. It is an honour to be there for everyone on the happiest and saddest days in their lives and it makes us proud that you chose us and our flowers

Our Apprentice

Great news, our apprentice Chloe has gained her Level 2 City and Guilds Floristry Qualification. She has worked hard this past year and despite finding out very quickly that its not the pretty job at times that people tend to think it is she has stuck at it and achieved her first, hopefully of many, floristry qualifications. We are all proud of her its not easy to gain floristry qualifications these days, there are no colleges in the Birmingham area to study at anymore.....I know I worked at them when we did !!! so she has put up with me teaching her, assessor visits every month, paperwork and exams. Its a recognised qualification in our industry and I am proud to have a qualified florist working alongside me. She is hoping to now move on to studying for her Level 3 

Bespoke Funeral Flowers

Bespoke funeral flowers are something we get asked about a lot. Its not all about how big something is, or how much money you can spend its about making a design thats personal to you and your loved one. It may something as simple as incorprating favourite colours into a design or adding a picture or a little toy. Or sometimes it requires us to cut a frame from foam, because thats the only way to give you want you want, or copying a packet of biscuits and giving it a personal touch. No job is to big or to small. Why not take a look at some of our personalised tributes.

Wedding Flowers

We always have quite a mix of Bride and Grooms, all very different taste, budgets but always very lovely people to work with. This year is no exception, August is this year favourite month for getting married......and last minute bridal flowers also seem to be a trend !! I'm not complaining I love designing wedding bouquets. So if you are recenty engaged, setting the date for the big day and you would like to deal with a professional florist, who will lovingly create whatever it is that you have dreamt of for you special day, give us a call 0121 366 7226. Arrange to pop in and have a chat so that we can discuss what YOU want.....             

Our Little Friends at Roses Florist

We have some lovely little , well actually they are quite big !! but cute and lovable little critters at the shop. They are a bit different from the usual garden ornaments, we like them and they are all house trained and looking for new homes...........          

Plants, Plants, Plants

We have a beautiful selection of plants at our little shop, they would look fantastic in anyones garden so why not come and have a look if your in the area. From small Sempervervium to larger shrubs and standard roses. Its a lovely time of the year with all this colour and the bedding season starting.....

Buttonholes !!

Buttonholes, the one part of a wedding that causes more upset and fall outs than anything else. I've seen Brides and Grooms fallout over them, future Mother-in-laws throw hissy fits about them and now Bridesmaids sobbing over them. So this is my suggestion if your not rockafella and haven't got the means to buy everyone a buttonhole be sensible. Make a list of your main bridal party;Groom, Bestmen/women,Ushers, Parents, Grandparents and Siblings; then decide if they have significant others who you feel should have a buttonhole.Does one of your Bridesmaids have a partner who should have one ? ......after that I would say its up to you and your budget. You can see where I am going can't you, buttonholes have this ability to become this huge , every growing monster..... if Aunty Ethel has one then everyone's Aunty will expect one !!! Sit down together , make a list, talk to your family if your on a budget maybe they will be happy to pay for their own but most of all don't be bullied into buying everyone one, unless you really, really want to and can afford it.

Wedding Flowers

We're now offering a range of Wedding Flowers that you can order online as well as our bespoke wedding flowers service. This now includes our first Wedding package, starting at £250 it has already been a huge hit with some of our Brides                        .

Easter 2015

Easter is two weeks away, we will be closed on Easter Monday and Tuesday. Open as usual from Wednesday 8th April and open on Good Friday. Here is a peek at our Easter window 2015

Mothers Day 2015

So after a truly emotional rollercoaster of a week last week, and what a weekend.....not sure where everyone came from but glad you all came to Roses Florist.  It takes an immense amount of organising, pre ordering of flowers, preparing plants and then conditioning flowers so that they are at there best for all the Mothers to recieve over Mothers Day weekend. We do it because we love our job but also because we have the support of such lovely customers, near and far who contunue to support our local, independent florist shop. So thank you.

Flowers for all occasions

We really do, do flowers for all occasions from birthday bouquets to sympathy flowers, weddings and funerals.

Just over a week to go !!

Just over a week to go to Mothers Day so if you haven't already ordered flowers for your Mom, your childrens Mom , the Mother in law ............get your skates on especially if you want something in particular. We are delivering on Mothers Day as usual and the shop will be open from 9am till 1pm as usual. 

Mothers Day 2015

We will be delivering on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th March and the shop will open both days but only until 3pm on Sunday........sorry but I do have a Mom to go see and my children would like to see me, I think ??!!

VIP Flowers

What a week, following a fantastic Valentines Day we've had a busy week which was topped off by being being asked to make a posy for none other than the Duchess of Cambridge when she visited Capehill Childrens Centre this week. We didn't know until after the delivery who they were for but what a privilege

Totally sold out Valentines Day !!

Wow, I have been exhausted and spent most of today curled up on the sofa thanks to all you fantastic people who chose to shop local this Valentines Day. We sold out of roses before lunchtime on Saturday, after that the flowers went bit by bit. It is so humbling to be supported by so many, we have  so many lovely customers who have told us time and time again how long our flowers last, how lovely our designs are. Mothers Day is four weeks away !! 15th March so here's your first reminder 

Rose Prices, Buy Local

Valentines Day 2015

Valentines Day is fast approaching, in fact it's this Saturday so listen up !! If you need to score brownie points shop local, find your local florist....its quite easy you Google Florist in the area you want the flowers;delivered or collected in. Postcodes are always good or the suburb especially in towns and cities as that narrows your search and should be more exact. Now by shopping local, in a real florist shop you are guaranteed excellent value for money, you will only pay for your flowers plus any delivery charge....no service charges, no hidden costs and no middle man taking their cut of your money before passing it on to some poor florist ( that's if your lucky, most relay/order gatherers use a main depot and sends flowers via courier) who then just gets a percentage of the order total, so they are already losing money!! Help support your local florist, where ever you are by finding them and using them, with your help we can bet these middlemen who are ruining the floral industry. If you need flowers in Birmingham, UK then give us a call 0121 366 7226 or email enquiries@rosesfloristsonline.com or shop 24/7 in our web shop this Valentines Day.        

Wedding flower package coming for 2015

We will shortly be offering a seasonal wedding flower package, it will run alongside our bespoke service. Flowers and quality will still be the best as you would expect from us but this option may suit some of our Brides. You will be able to select colour , we select the flowers and foliages for you. Details to follow

We take bookings for wedding flowers all year round, we are still able to add to the weddings we already have this year and already getting booking for 2016.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all. With a fresh year in front of us we are looking forward to continuing to support our chosen charities as well as our local schools and other independent business' like ourselves. Having our website linked with other independent shops through Florist Windows has made it easier to conect to florists around the country helping us to offer you a nationwide service to deliver flowers without costing you extra service charges. Valentines Day as only a matter of weeks away and its shortly followed by Mothers Dasy this Year so here we go, Hello 2015

Christmas deliveries and Opening hours 2014

As usual during Decenber we will be open the three Sundays leading up to Christmas from 10 am until 2pm. Christmas eve deliveries are available again this year at no extra or additional cost other than the usual delivery charges. Our opening hours remain the same throughout December on weekdays; we are here from 8.30am in the mornings and close at 5.30pm or 5pm on Mondays and Saturdays.                                              We will close between Christmas and New Year, any orders taken between these dates will be delivered but we always close at this time due to the fact that there is no fresh flower deliveries during  Christmas and New Year and we have always felt it unfair to sell old stock to our loyal customers who expect the best from us as this is what we always endevour to give them. Mind you there is usually very little left once we get to Christmas Eve so thats always a factor too !!

Christmas Raffle 2014

Every year we do a Christmas Raffle at Roses Florist for a charity of our choice, last year we raised £75 for the Midlands Air Ambulance. This year we lost a very dear friend to Type 1 Diabetes so it seems only right that we support JDRF Type 1 Diabetes Charity this Christmas. The tickets will be on sale from now until close of business on Saturday 20th December when we will draw a winner, the prize is this beautiful Father Christmas so why not get a ticket when your passin and hellp us support JDRF.

We've turned 10 !!

Last month we turned 10 years old, thats not bad for a little independent florist shop. So we would just like to thank our very loyal customers, new customers and those who stop by just very occasionally for surporting a local shop. You see its very important to us, to any local , independent shop actualy that we have such loyal customers; judging by the amount of return customers and recommendations that we are getting it proves we are doing something right. Sometimes people think we are more expensive but if you just pop in you will find we offer designs for every budget, we can tweek things to suit you and you get what you want not what someone is telling you to have. So if you haven't already give us a chance, in fact just support your local, independent shops where ever you are !!

Christmas Prize Draw and Launch of our Charity Bouquets

We will soon be launching our usual Christmas raffle, £1 per ticket and the prize will be a lovely Christmas cuddly of some description, we are going to have a look next week. All profit raised from the raffle will this year be donated to JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; the only charity set up to raise funds and awareness for Type 1 Diabetes. This is in memory of our very dear friend, Glenn who passed away very suddenly in June so please spare a £! for such a good cause.

We are also set to launch our charity bouquet, again this will be supporting JDRF, this will be available from our website or via the shop and every bouquet that we sell we will donate £5 to JDRF. It would have been Glenn'sb irthday this month so it seems fitting we launch it now

I am still collecting so I will keep you posted if we get any more donations, every single one of you that popped in for a cuppa or just to make a donation I can not thank you enough, an amazing effort. We also ran a Prize Draw in September to celebrate our Tanth anniversary, it was only open to people visiting the shop in person, not that we don't appreciate all of your custom but we needed to keep it local. Our winner has been informed and will now recieve a bouquet every month for the next 12 months.

Our 10th Birthday and Macmillan Coffee Morning

This September we will be celebrating our 10th Birthday, we are planning on having a bit of a party and your all invited. We always take part in Macmillans coffee morning which is also this month so it looks like we will be rolling them all  into one. Watch this space !!
