January has felt long this year, and we’re ready to embrace all the lightness of spring. While we must wait a little longer for the trees and flowers to flourish, why not order some beautiful blooms to bring the vibrant colours and freshness of spring into your home?
Whether you’ve grown to love the dried flower trend of the last year or would prefer a gorgeous bouquet of flowers to brighten up your day, we’re sharing 8 florists and floral designers based in The Cotswolds that will bring some joy to your home or loved ones through their beautiful arrangements of flowers.
Isabloom is an ethical, recyclable and sustainable floral designer, inspired by the earth and all things bohemian. Isabloom Floral Design founded its sister brand, Forever Flower Boxes in the first lockdown out of a desire to create uplifting gifts that could be sent nationwide to loved ones to spread smiles and keep spirits up.
Designed to be delivered to any letter box in the UK, all dried flower stems are hand picked, wrapped in tissue paper and sent in recyclable boxes for the recipient to have fun arranging at home. Each box is unique like every flower in nature is unique, and are created in the stated colour scheme. We love their vibrant Valentines letterbox blooms, featuring vibrant pinks and reds which will definitely bring some colour to any room!

Home to beautifully unique dried flower wreathes, Hillside Farm Flowers was founded during the first lockdown, from a greenhouse on a farm in The Cotswolds. Sophie had previously worked in the corporate world and lockdown provided the perfect opportunity to move back to the farm and take the leap to starting a business that she was passionate about.
Her farm life is reflected in the wreathes, each is named after a sheep breed and all dried flowers are protected by being wrapped in environmentally friendly wool that’s washed by hand. We love the designs of all her wreathes, each one like a wild flower meadow. The moss and daisy wreath is one of our favourites as it's so unique and simple!

The Floral Nest is run by Jane Kent, a florist and floral designer who takes inspiration from nature to provide high quality flowers with a natural country feel and elegant twist. Jane is delivering beautiful ‘Flowers for the weekend’, which are pretty, seasonal hand picked bouquets sent on a Friday to brighten up those lockdown weekends. If you’d love one of her gorgeous deliveries, you’ll have to be quick as these tend to sell out quickly!
For a regular dose of The Floral Nest, you can also subscribe for weekly, fortnightly or monthly hand tied bouquets, each one different from the last to bring some spring freshness into your home.
