Happy new year everyone ! I am always on the look out for new exciting products for the shop. I will soon be having some beautiful home accessories from Dassie Artisan. This fantastic company works with artisans from developing countries. Their aim is to produce unique designed home wares which empowers the artisans to create better lives for them and their communities. Here is a sneak peek of what will be arriving soon at Offshore Blooms.
Offshore Blooms have the perfect Christmas stocking fillers this year for your loved ones.
My favourite this year are the soft leather coin purses by Bronte, add some Christmas sparkle with the gold and silver. Or relax with a scented candle and a grapefruit salt scrub from Parkminster.
Why not add in the gorgeous Wanderlust and a christmas dec from Broste. Happy Christmas !
Bring a little bit of Nordic styling into your decor this Christmas. Beautiful porcelain feathers and autumnal acorns. Wooden decorations in smokey hues all make up the perfect Nordic Christmas. Glass titanium lanterns filled with light or candles. Wicker silver striped baskets fit for a real Nordic spruce. Feeling festive yet ...........
Offshore Blooms has definitely moved out of the yellow and pastels of spring summer to a more sultry palette. Instore now we are seeing Broste homewares in smoke greys and blush pinks. There are glass and metal antique lanterns to create atmosphere. Beautiful linen cushions and statement vases. Or wrap yourself up in one of their beautiful cotton throws. All ready for the Autumn evenings by the fire.
Summer is upon us and so is festival season. I contributed to a photo shoot in beautiful Clovelly. This is my take on a bouquet for a festival inspired wedding. Boho chic and bold colours, with Anemones, Veronica and lime green Viburnum. All tied together with trailing jewel coloured ribbons. Photography by Liberty Pearl , styling by Blue Fizz events.
What happened to the Sun ! Makes us want to disappear to warmer climates. Offshore Blooms have some new travel inspired cotton towels ready to take with you. Hammamas are from Australia and are a great invention. Perfect for travel, surf, beach,pool, home, bath. Hammamas are not just a towel, great to wear as a beach dress, sarong, wrap, scarf or even sit and have a picnic. In all colours they have definitely brightened up the shop on this grey day. We are selling them on our on-line shop or in store. Pop by and check them out.
Spring is here and we have some gorgeous new stock arrive. Raine and Humble is a very cool brand from Melbourne Australia. Check out their store on Instagram in Moonee Ponds, Victoria, very nice. R&H offer beautiful Home linens, decor accessories, kitchen accessories with a very unique feel. Their brilliant home designers travel the world getting their inspiration.
In Offshore Blooms we have a unique range of home wares, I wanted to offer something different for Braunton. Look forward to meeting new customers in 2015.
June 2014 Offshore Blooms grew up. I made the big step of moving out of my little workshop into a shop front. I have always wanted to make the move and had known exactly how I wanted to be.
On July the 23rd I opened the door to my own shop. I wanted Offshore Blooms not to be just a flower shop, I wanted it to bring something different to Braunton. A florist/Homewares/lifestyle store. I wanted it be the little shop I would always pop back to when visiting a place.
There are many things I want to do with the shop but small steps... Look forward to seeing more new faces in the future.... Kelly Xx
