Posies in Paddington

Over the last few months I’ve tightened my purse strings to save money for an upcoming overseas trip and one of the casualties of this has been a lack of fresh blooms in my living room. Like most women I love flowers and whilst I dearly miss spending my pennies on a pretty posie or two, I’m thankful that I live within walking distance of the gorgeous Francesca’s Flowers so I can get a flower fix when I need!

Opening  late last year, Francesca’s is a florist, giftshop and tea room all-in-one. Offering uniquely gorgeous blooms and bouquets and the most delicious cakes supplied by Gillian Bell (who sources her ingredients locally)  it’s the perfect place for a girly pick me up.

I mean just look at these flowers – so gorgeous and fresh!

The cakes are pretty phenomenal too don’t you think?

And you know what else makes Francesca’s fabulous? They also run floral workshops where you can learn to create vintage posies, table arrangements and bouquets whilst enjoying tea and a treat! I’m super excited to do one in March and will make sure to document it for the blog.

If you’re looking for a charming and friendly place for a spot of tea, or to pick up some fresh flowers before Valentine’s Day, be sure to check Francesca’s Flowers out – I can guarantee you’ll fall in love with the place.
