What we do

Springbank Flowers is one of the UK’s leading florists. Since 1990 our creativity, energy and unique eye for detail has delivered truly bespoke, beautiful event decoration for the most discerning private and corporate clients.

From our HQ in Manchester we travel across the UK and Europe. Our team transforms any venue into a breath-taking setting making sure that it’s one of a kind.

And we don’t stop there! We also provide exquisite bouquets for special occasions and spectacular corporate flowers for hotels, shops and offices. Springbank will ensure you make the right impression whether you’re going for opulence or warmth,  a grand gesture or understated elegance.

We’re having a new website built at the moment which we’re promised will be all-singing all-dancing. In the meantime, we’ve listened to those of you who want to know what we’ve been up to and switched to this interim site. It should be easier for you to browse our portfolio of work so  take a look around and please get in touch with any questions.

More thoughts on Valentines Day…

Further to our last post regarding Valentines Day, we have been pondering, nay – debating the historical preference for girls to be given flowers by boys on this celebrated day, why is that? What’s to stop a girl giving a boy flowers? We say there is nothing. We took a poll in the building and we all agreed that we would love to receive flowers on Valentines Day…

and what is more, this does not have to be restricted to flowers in the traditional bouquet. Why not buy the flowers with a view to putting them on the romantic dinner table at home? They will last a lot longer than Valentines Day and be a constant reminder of how thoughtful you have been.

We urge you to reconsider the Valentines Day gesture, discard the hangdog expression and  ‘tick off a chore’ mentality and embrace the whole romantic notion, it’s only one day but the romance might last a lot longer!

At last!!

At long last we are moving to somewhere big enough to cope with Anna-Liisa’s ambition. From Monday 4th February Springbank will be trading from 109-111 Pollard Street, Manchester, M4 7JB. We will confirm new telephone numbers in due course however all email addresses will remain the same.

Be my Valentine!

So, Christmas is over and the weather has reminded us that it is in fact winter. Despite being wrapped up like Nanook of the North, we are all bracing ourselves for that one day in February when everyone wants to say it with flowers! It may be a little sentimental for some, it may be the most romantic thing you could do for others; one thing you absolutely cannot do ….is forget!

So whether it is red roses (traditional) or ask us for some help and be adventurous with your choice of flowers, remember to call us, we can take orders now for the big day, book early to avoid disappointment and make sure your loved one gets their gift on the day!

Christmas magic!

Christmas is a busy time for everyone, and certainly every florist on the planet is at full capacity! There can be few festivals that have such a long build up for what is basically two days of celebration.

The evenly scheduled contract work throughout the year turns for this one month into an extreme exercise in time management – all our clients need their Christmas installations at the same time and of course all need to be individual.

Although a frantically busy time for us this is also an enjoyable time, as our creative skills in collaboration with our clients enable some spectacular ideas to become reality. Every member of staff gets involved as it is all hands to the pump for a very frenetic week or two.

Preparing Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace Grand Hall

Once installed, we can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour and relish the photographic evidence….. well for five minutes, until the next winter wedding design, preparation and execution takes place!

BP Grand Hall finished

The wide variety of flora at our disposal at this time of year broadens our repertoire, enabling our props to have a completely different look and feel – from winter wonderland themes to rich opulent biblical references and back to Dickensian backdrops.

Oh what a joy this time of year is for us – to be able to transport people however momentary to a magical space –
