Silky Bouquets Ltd.

The Silk Flower Specialists-Floristry with a difference

Silky Bouquets logo.jpg

Silky Bouquets Ltd. are 'the silk flower specialists' providing artificial flower designs for every occasion. Made to order, personalised designs are despatched by courier and delivered nationwide and beyond. We specialise in funeral and memorial tributes and provide flowers at half the price of a fresh flower tribute with the added bonus that they last at the memorial place for upto a year.

What prompted you to develop it?

The business has been developed due to a number of factors, a major one being the recession. As so many consumers had to tighten their belts our cost effective tributes have provided a more suitable product for those burying a loved one, and, as the recession has closed so many of the 'local' florists we identified a niche for a very personal service to fulfil the gap left by the high street florist.

Is it in production or use?

Our products have been available online now for 3 years and we are expanding all the time. We produce the items in our shop in Widnes and now have a growing team of 5 producing designs and dealing with enquiries.

Who inspires you?

My inspiration is Michelle Mone from Ultimo, the drive and determination she has used to build the brand from a niche in the market has really inspired my path.

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

In creating our innovative business in silk flower designs I hope we can offer our service as a national brand, recognised as the go to brand for silk flowers and for funerals and memorials. We hope to expand continually and provide more jobs locally in the next few years.
