The power of the flower

Eliza James Flowers is based near Shaftesbury in the heart of Thomas Hardy Country, the beautiful Blackmore Vale. Hilary James founded her floristry business after creating beautiful designs for her daughter’s wedding. A need to follow her heart and passion for beautiful flowers led Hilary to sign up for a career course in all things flowers and she was trained in Bath to the style of the internationally renowned, late Jane Packer, by the Tallulah Rose Flower School, (www.tallulahroseflowerschool.com). Inspiration for her beautiful and relaxed flower designs comes from tables laden with blooms from the W.I. markets in Dorset, frothy hedgerows and wild flowers in the craggy outcrops of her heartland Bakewell in the Peak National Park. With her formal training Hilary offers city chic and country garden styles and just about anything inbetween.

Eliza James Flowers welcomes enquiries for all events of any size and style and are handily placed to cover Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Hampshire and into the border of Devon. A careful consultation process with brides (and their families if they wish) includes the setting up of a design mood board to ensure that the wedding flowers will fulfill their dreams. From posies to exquisite full flowing bridal showers, jam jars to huge centerpieces, bridesmaids circlets, corsages, place settings, they can cover everything.

Enquiries are also welcome for corporate floral designs and flowers for intimate dinner parties, in fact any event or venue that requires the positive energy that beautiful flowers offer.

Hilary is also an experienced tutor. For brides on a budget she is able to offer workshops to cover hand tied bouquets, centerpieces and wirework. Perhaps the brides, family and friends may like to book a workshop and then under Hilary’s guidance have the confidence to produce their own flowers for the big day. Eliza James Flowers can come to you – make a day of it – you will be astounded. Informal gatherings of friends, colleagues, groups can be organized and Hilary will guide you through the wonderful process of creating beautiful flowers all year round.
