Corporate Flower Companies for Receptions in London – Reviewed
Walking into a corporate reception area, there are many things that can make that all important glorious first impression. One of these can be your flower displays.
Our FOHM Forum members have given their invaluable insight into which corporate florists are best. Please see their recommendations below and their comments. We have not published the ones they decided were not cutting the grade – only the best.
1: Turners – they are stunning flowers. I highly recommend them – and their service
2: For me, this would have to be Hybrid flowers. Hybrid tend to use very exotic plants and flowers and have a very artistic approach to displays. They use very imaginative containers and I remember many of their creations causing quite a stir at firms I have worked at.
3: I would highly recommend Carrington Brown. We have been using them for more than 15 years. They are extremely reliable, efficient and always provide wonderful displays and bouquets. They are happy to tailor their service to your request – I have never had any issues or cause for concern. They are also very reasonably priced.
4: I would recommend Early Hours – Tel no: 0208 691 1665 – Contacts are Lizzie or Latoyah. A great team they listen to what you want, really creative especially for large events, they do spectacular floristry on your budget. Amazing designs on Instagram!
5: I know that we have the one we use, but there is another one I would also recommend – Hayford & Rhodes / I went to an event at the end of last year where they did the flowers and I was blown away. They were amazing.
6: We do use Carrington Brown for our regular reception flowers and for Dinners and they have always been really lovely and reasonably priced too.
7: I have worked with a number of florists over the years, the only one I have found to be consistent in quality is Rush Flowers
8: Shaftsberries – tel: 020 7703 5005 or 07905 826 326. We have just one display so it needs to be good and I can recommend Shaftsberries for this – their arrangements are beautiful and so are the vases they provide. The flowers last all week (with the odd exception of hydrangea in hot weather!) and they never fail to deliver on time – early Monday morning for us, before our office opens.
9: Hayford and Rhodes florist, excellent service. James the manager is always there and so helpful if we want or need anything changed during the week. We always come up with new ideas and he is more than happy to listen and try to make it work.
10: Our florist is Paula Pryke, she is a traditionalist in style but is open to suggestions
11: I am very happy to recommend our absolutely amazing flower company that looks after our weekly office requirements and also after corporate events that you know are top end. Flower arrangements are always WOW, very consistent, supportive of last minute requests, very professional and a great partner to our business. Neil Birks, NB Flowers +44 (0)20 3202 0005
12: We are using McQueens – very good florists, expensive. I guess if one wants a ‘Wow’ factor one pays for it
