Halloween is upon us now in Wednesbury, with all the pumpkins sold as usual! Next up in Wednesbury will be Bonfire night, and there will be organised Bonfire celebrations in Brunswick Park as well as Sandwell Valley. Here at Danckerts Florist the Autumn collection is in full swing with all the lovely oranges and reds making a striking statement in the various bouquets and arrangements.

We have just had a Halloween competition on our Facebook page, with the lucky winner receiving one our gorgeous Autumn hand tied bouquets with orange lillies and deep red roses! As we come to the close of 2014, we are getting ever near to Christmas, and we will be putting our Xmas display in the window very soon. By mid November our flower collections will change and we will welcome the Winter Collection.

We can promise some truly amazing bouquets. The winter collection has an enchanting selection of icy whites and delicate glittered flowers complimented by leaves and seasonal foliage in deep greens, blues and silver. By the end of November the Christmas Collection will be launched and these bouquets and arrangements will be filled with lavish reds, pine fresh greens, crisp whites and plenty of shining gold, silver and sparkles.

It is also worth noting that we have now been trading for 60 years, as Mr & Mrs Danckert senior celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary at the beginning of the month! Quite an achievement by anyone’s standards! Hopefully we will dig out some old photos from the early days and post them up on our Facebook page!

Happy Halloween!
