Sorry i ate all the mince pies xx

Winter is approaching.

I cannot believe we are nearing the end of October,and only 8 weeks until Christmas.

We have had another busy busy month at YSF. Lots of gift bouquets and arrangements  going out on delivery and collections. Plus our usual funeral tributes. This month is the end of our very busy wedding season.

We are now trying to come up with new ideas for Christmas. IE Window displays , Rings that are differant and Table Decs.

We were honoured to be asked to supply Leicester Square with our huge rings for a pop up shop display this year, which will be going up to London

9th November.


Sorry for not updating

Sorry for not updating, but the shop has been very busy with orders, plants and holidays.

Summer shrubs to be planted now bedding and basket plants should be in and planted and in full bloom.

We are well into wedding season now, we have updated a couple of this years desiggns but awaiting for more pics with the brides permission to update. This year trend is back to traditional designs, which is fab.

We are also in the middle of re-branding. I think Handtied bouquets and box flowers are very dated, yes good if you are not presenting for a while, but for style i think the traditional wraps are much better and you can keep the stems longer, and look more stylish, they will still be hand tied but wraped modern with no bag,or box, and not in water.


Over the moon

WOW....We had a very busy last couple of weeks, Selling lots of gifts, Flower bouquets, Hand Ties, and arranements,

We survived a hectic Valentines Day, It did bite me on the bum, as i thouht it wouldnt be busy, so kept my buying to the minimum, but i had to order another delivery of roses and other flowers Lillies Germini, Tulips,

We was so happy to recieve comfirmation that were in The Good Florist Guide.



A very happy new year, WOW!! what a busy Christmas we had in Ramsgate, plenty to do and see.

The harbour looked lovely with many of the boats illuminated looked very pretty.

We had the turning on of the Christmas lights in town, plus lots more.

Us at YSF had a busy season selling lots of lovely door rings, Table centres and gifts, It was our busiest delivering beautiful season gifts in and around Ramsgate.

This is YSF @Christmas 2016

We also had our van sign written...

Summer has flown by

 That was quick!! We was so busy in the summer months with Weddings and Gifts, plus a re-vamp of our little shop.

Summer has finished and we are well into Autumn, The leaves are falling and the nights are drawing in sad

But that can only mean santa is on his way !! I love this time of year with all the burnt oranges and reds and rust flowers we now have in stock.Also we sell the Gaulds and Squashes.Some of our Squashes and Gaulds come from local Kent farms.

At York Street Flowers all of our  designs in our bouquets and planters are our own design, and we do not belong to any relay service.

We are 100% independant which means that there are no hidden costs.

We get asked why we charge a delivery fee, the answer is quite simple.....I employ a driver who  needs a wage, i have a van i need to Tax

Insure, and keep legaly on the road. If you are NOT paying a delivery charge you will find the fee is taken out of the flower value, and also screams to me desperate for orders....

Now i must get back to carving pumpins for several halloween parties we have booked in for  next week.

Happy Halloween !!!!



Summer planting is around the corner

Already the middle of April!!!...summer plant are starting to appear at our wholesalers surprise...Geraniums, Osteo rain daisy, verbena, lobellia,and trays of mixed variety Fuchsia"s.  BUT it is still to early to plant them...I always say may bank hoiday is the start of summer  planting.

 Wedding season has got off to a slow start this year, usually we have quite a few spring Brides, but not this year we only had 4, but talking to

 other florists in other parts of the country they have seen a fall too, maybe because last spring was very cold and wet last year. but we do have some stunning summer wedding flowers on order...watch this space for the pics ...

 Easter weekend was very busy at YSF, we delivered lots of lovely flowers and gifts, plus a good footfall through the shop people selecting there own flowers to be made into lovely bouquets and Hand-tieds.

Succulents, Cacti and the Blue Rain are very popular at the moment.Also very popular since Christmas has been Jasmine.


Getting ready for spring

Valentine day has just passedsmiley which i am personally glad about, its one of a florists peak times which can be stressful not nowing which way it is going to go, either ordering not enough red Roses, or too many, because this year it fell on a sunday i played safe and orderred less roses, which i am pleased about, it was the right call.

ust over two weeks to go to my favourite time of the year, Mothes day....I love it.

We can play pretty, Our  shop is full of wonderful scented spring flowers & Plants,

We have been putting smiles on mums faces since 2003.

Wow already February

Wow cannot believe its already february , Belated happy new year.

Lets start with Christmas, which was mega busy in the shop with deliveries and Christmas gifts.

We sold hundreds of our stunning bespoke pine door rings, and gorgeous Table centres.Thank you all for you support in 2015

and we look forward to your continued support.

This time of year we are busy creating beautiful funeral designs for your loved ones.

This is one of my favourites so far this winter a Rainbow Wreath..(sorry for poor pic)


What summer!!

Summer has gone and all i can say is what summer, weather has been awful on the south east coast, but us at YSF have been mega busy especially with Weddings and Gifts.

In between  we have had the shop painted, so we are all clean and bright for Autumn.

Now its full steam ahead as Christmas will be knocking on the door very soon and we have lots of prep work, going out getting Fir cones, looking for places to cut Holly and Tree ivy with black berries.

We are also proud to sponsor Academy FM radio, with a weekly gift.

Our webite is going from strenth to strength, all thanks to you our lovely customers.

Another lovely Google review

Another review on google
My family absolutely adore this company, and as Mother's day was around the corner, I wanted to treat my Mum. As I live in Guildford I am unable to see her as frequently as I'd like but still wanted to give her something special. I made an order on York Street Flowers website and it was very quick and easy (plus reasonably priced too!). My Mum received her flowers on Mother's day and was delighted. Wonderful shop! Wonderful people! 5 *****!

Feedback from a happy customer

We have just recieved this lovely message from one of our Valentine day customers

: Good morning, This is just a quick message to thank you for the quality of the flowers you delivered to my wife Sonia in the Avanta office last Friday. I have ordered the occasional bunch of flowers in my time. Those you supplied have to be amongst the most splendid I have seen. The quality, quantity selection and colour co-ordination is fantastic and the flowwers look as fresh a week later as when Sonia bought them home. So once again a big thank you for delivering such a lovely bunch of flowers. 

Happy New Year

Wow what can i say, Christmas was so busy at YSF that i did not get a chance to update here..my appolgies.

We are now in the middle of January, Brides have been coming in booking there dates for Flowers, all very exciting smiley

Shop looks so bare now all the glitter and lights have been taken down, But we have started spring YIPPPEEEE.

Lovely spring bulbs , Jasmines ,Hyacinths, and  lovely Narcicus from the Isles of scilly which have the most beautiful smell, it does smell lovely when you walk in

We have our 1st wedding of the year Saturday 17th which will be all Suri red germinis.

Happy New year to you all.

Summers nearly Over.

WOWEEE What a fab few months we have had with summer garden plants,Wedding venues to decorate and lovely Brides to help the choose there flowers for there special day. Pics will follow.

We have also made time to spruce up the shop with a lick of paint, we still have the counter front and door to finish.

York Strret also has a new Card and gift shop opened next door ...which is a big improvement on what was there before hahahha.

We are now getting shop ready for our Autumn designs, which will be a blaze of vibrant oranges, rusts, reds and greens.


Valentines at YSF

What can i say after a week after Valentines day, i am  now feeling a bit more normal, we were shattered, and frazzled.It was a marathan, non stop for 4 days,

It was not that we was not prepared, it was the sheer volume of phone calls, customers in the shop, it was manic.I ordered the same as last year, but by the wednesday i knew we would not have enough, so i ordered more flowers for the thursday, by lunchtime we had sold virtually all we had, so another order of flowers for friday was placed. I was panicking i had bought too much, but thankfully i had bought enough. we sold out of Roses by 2pm on the 14th, and we also had to turn our webite off for orders for delivery due to our drivers getting  the deliveries of flowers out on time.

This is why you should always order flowers from a local high street florist and not a relay service or a supermarket to order a special delivery ...we will always be honest with you if we can get your delivery to the recipient on time, if we cannot we will tell you and give you an alternative.The relay companies on the social media is alive with hundreds of upset customers who have been let down, as there flowers and gifts did not turn up, and there loved ones left disappointed.

Dont be let down for Mothers day 30th March ORDER from your local Florist, make it more personal have your local  florists delivery driver deliver your flowers and dont let your special mum be welcomed by a box of flowers that has traveled half way around the uk by a courier company delivering her Mothers Day flowers.


Valentines continued


Wow February already

 Wow February already.

Its coming up to one of our busiest days of the year, Yes Valentines Day .

I dont usually do a full on Valentines window display as they can look very tacky, but this year i have been talked into doing one.

This below is as far as i could go without it becoming tacky and  un tasteful.

Happy new year 2014

 Wow what a fab time we had  at YSF Christmas time, We  were extreamly busy making Door rings/Holly wreaths and Table centres.

This yearwe sold over 70 Table centres, which was the  most we had sold in 10 years of trading..Thank you to everyone who shopped and supported us in 2013 x

We also received a lovely note from one of our summer brides Mai

We are looking forward to working with our 2014 Brides helping making there day very special.


Christmas has started at york street flowers

 Christmas is finally starting at york street flowers, Although it will take up to at least a week to finish, in between serving customers and making up our orders, we hope to be finished by this sunday, as the Ramsgate Christmas lights are turned on.

Shop Front all done

 After weeks of being surrounded by scaffolding for a shop face lift it has finally been finished.

At first when we were told it was going to be done we were a bit aphrehensive with the colours, but The whole of my building and the cab office is now the same, and i must say i really like it, and It has made our end of York Street look really nice.

Autumn has arrived


We have scaffolding surrounding the shop for a couple of weeks while we have a face lift, shop feels really dark, and we are resticted to what displays we can have outside.


 Summer 2013 wow what some fab weather we had this year, Here in Ramsgate we had some very hot days, But some very worrying for florists trying to keep all our Flowers in prime condition, we kept our stock to a minimum so we could maintain our good reputation for freshness and longivity flowers, We also had a very good summer outdoor plant season, we changed our buying of plants this year to more Rockery plants, succulents pond plants and unusual flowering plants, we still had the old favourites, but we gave our customers something differant, and WOW factor.

As summer 2013 is ending we are now coming to the end of  Wedding season, and we had some fabulous brides wanting us to create there Flowers.We also saw the return of the Traditional shower bouquet, which i was really pleased about. not many of our Brides wanted the Handtied bouquet. Also Bridesmaids didnt have the posies they had the Beautiful pearl Bracelets.A big Thank-you to all our brides for choosing YSF and thank you for the lovely letters and notes and the gifts i recieved for helping make there day that little bit special...Thank you x

 Beautiful  orchids.A lovely gift for any  ocassion
