• Our dried flower bunches on TV – Escape to the Chateau

    Posted on December 16, 2016 by in Dried flowers general

    We love Escape to the Chateau!

    It’s a great show on Channel 4 in which Dick and Angel Strawbridge buy and do up a French chateau. Series one covered the basic renovations of the chateau and series two, in which the couple start to earn an income from their investment, has just aired.

The reality of the show is also refreshing as the couple do not have unlimited funds and have to renovate a little at a time as income allows.

    Soon after watching series one, we were very excited when the team asked if we could help them out with some dried flower bunches for series two! Angel wanted dried flowers for general decoration of the chateau, and for wedding decorations for the first ceremony to be held there as part of their new business.

    We were so lucky that Dick and Angel loved our flowers!

    Since we received the dried flowers from Daisy Shop, the chateau has been filled with beautiful aromas, delicate colours and textures. We were so impressed with how well the flowers travelled, the speedy and helpful service and the huge variety on offer. We used Daisy Shop for our first wedding at the chateau to create a vintage flower look and we will definitely be using them again. We can’t recommend them highly enough.”

    And on their website they wrote,

    gorgeous dried flowers to order online, perfect for a vintage wedding flower look.”
