We love this flower shop we found in the Kensal Rise neighborhood of London. They collect vintage vases/containers, and send out their flowers in them. It’s such a nice idea—that you would get an arrangement in a vase that you keep, rather than in a glass one that you end up holding onto out of guilt, but don’t quite know what to do with it.
P.S. A friend just emailed and reminded us of the shop’s name, Scarlet and Violet. She said “I sent flowers from there to my good friend in London when she had a bby a few years ago and she said it was the prettiest arrangement she’s ever seen.” Good to know, in case you ever need to know a great London florist.
