A small selection of feedback from our customers…

Hi Ada

This is my review if you would like to add it to you website.
I attended a 3 day course with Ada in January,  it was brilliant.   She’s a really warm and lovely person, with a wealth of experience and time saving techniques.  With her knowledge within the industry she guided me on my business name just in the nick of time before I had all the stationery done.
The quality and variety of the flowers/materials supplied where amazing, the course content was tailored to suit the areas where I felt that further experience was required.    I also completed a day using silk flowers, where she gave me lots of experience in using materials that I had not used before.    This course was very informative and good value for money compared to others that I had researched.
Ada gave me confidence and reassurance, I’m setting up my business ready to start for Mothers day.   Although I’ve already had orders starting to come in for Valentines.
This is a very pleasurable and informative course.   Tina G

“This is the first opportunity I have had to get in contact with you since our wonderful day a couple of weekends ago. We thoroughly enjoyed it and I feel so happy and confident that I can do my wedding flowers and developed a bit of a passion for it and may continue with it after the wedding, who knows! You made us feel welcome and comfortable in your home and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you or look at booking a flower-arranging day with you again. I am hoping this week to try and get the numbers down for the flowers that we listed on the day and I will send them to you for you to check for me which you kindly offered to do…”

“Thank you so much for Saturday.  My flowers look wonderful even if I say so myself !  I never thought I could make such professional looking arrangements. My sister and I are interested in the bridal course as she gets married next June and we would like to do the flowers ourselves”

“Thank you Ada.  Gillian and I had a lovely time and loved the relaxed atmosphere. We have had such a brilliant day – I took the big arrangement to my Mum, she was so impressed. We will be back in June for the wedding course xx Nina”

“Many thanks for a wonderful day. I had a lovely time and am thrilled with my efforts. I hope to meet with my daughter on Sunday and show her my day’s achievements. Your hospitality was wonderful and most appreciated and I just wish I had been able to do the other two days floristry course. I hope to organise that for later in the year, it will give me some more insight and great tips”

“Thank you so much for 2 wonderful days.  I would like to echo everyone else’s feedback & thank you for your wonderful hospitality, and for being so welcoming in your home.  It was also great to receive such quick responses to every email and the oasis brochures in the lead up to the course, they certainly do help to whet the appetite.  I have looked at the oasis, fusion & fleur websites & can’t wait to get my teeth stuck in, I have told my husband Stu that I may be requiring his shed!  I am so thrilled with all my arrangements and its so lovely to see how everyone has their favourites.  I look forward to booking other flower arranging courses with you in the future and will cherish my clematis always”

“Kate and I had a wonderful day yesterday we had so much fun we felt as if we had known you for years. Thank you for sharing your expertise and knowledge, we feel so much more prepared for planning and preparing the flowers for Kate’s wedding. We left at the end of the day feeling very relaxed, it was a welcome break from work, you should  market the course as an antidote for stress!”

“Thank you so much for the wonderful course today. Being a novice I learnt a great deal. You gave both Anne & I some fantastic ideas and you gave me the confidence to go ahead and try things that I would otherwise have shied away from”

Just a quick message to thank you for a really lovely day yesterday.   We learnt such a lot from your obvious wealth of knowledge and experience about all things flowery and plantey!   My mind is far happier now that you have answered all my questions.   I met up with the bride this morning and she is delighted with what we made.   So a very successful experience all round.   Thank you again for making it such an easy, welcoming and relaxing experience.   Very best wishes Sian and Eleri   Camarthenshire.

Well it really was the perfect day – the flowers looked amazing, all of the ideas and techniques we discussed worked a treat.   Thank you again for such a lovely and very helpful day, David and I loved it.   Best wishes Tanya and David x Solihull Birmingham

Hi Ada,  Thank you for a great weekend, I really enjoyed the course, l would have loved to have  had a few more days with you. I showed the pics of my arrangements to the girls in work, they were impressed. I gave the orchid arrangement to Rachel for her birthday, she absolutely loved it and it was a bit more special because I had made it (with your help of course). The hand tied I gave to another friend who now thinks I have talent lol. The baby has still not arrived so Jo’s arrangement is ready and waiting. The wreath has pride of place on my dining table although I have now added a candle and the silk contemporary is on my sideboard. The lilies, which have all now opened are on the floor in my living room, they are beautiful. My house looks and smell gorgeous and I walk around with a smile on my face admiring them. xx Christine Cardiff.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for today. My mum and I had a lovely time and came away bursting with ideas. I really feel like I’ve got the confidence to now do my wedding flowers and have a clear idea what I want to achieve! I gave Florence her wand for 5 minutes to see what it was like for size and it’s perfect. I’ve had to hide it away from her as she didn’t want to give it up!
 Thanks again
