Prestigious Accolade for the Flower Divas
The Flower Divas in Audlem has been accepted for the Good Florist Guide (GFG), a web based directory of the finest florists in the UK.
This prestigious accolade is only awarded to florists who really make the grade and allows customers to have an extra level of confidence that they are buying from the best.
Each florist shop invited to be in the guide has to pass a rigorous evaluation process before being approved.
This meant that The Flower Divas had to submit a detailed description of their floristry business, including range available and services offered as well as images of the shop, their design work, their team and even the delivery vehicle!
But GFG shops aren’t just some of the best looking shops, they also offer the very best value when it comes to buying bespoke floristry and flowers because not only are they true craftsmen but have the very best product knowledge to make sure the flowers and plants you buy from them will last for ages.
Commenting on their success Sam and Dominique of The Flower Divas said:
"We are delighted to be accepted into the Good Florist Guide. We are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers so it is wonderful to have this recognised, particularly as we are the only Florists in the South Cheshire Area to be currently listed in the guide."
Caroline Marshall-Foster, the UK’s leading expert on independent bespoke florists, is responsible for setting up the Good Florist Guide. Caroline’s comments on the girl’s application said:
"It is highly commendable that you are constantly in the process of learning new things and keeping your skills up to date with what’s new, this is very much reflected in your work which is frankly stunning in its creativity and technical ability."
Caroline goes on to say: “You can buy flowers virtually anywhere these days. But nothing really beats the experience of receiving fabulous flowers from a truly bespoke florist and without it costing an arm or a leg.
"GFG is my way of sharing all that is good about floristry. It allows consumers to know that the florist they use is able and willing to go the extra mile and make all their purchases, big or small, truly special.”
