Our Blooming Blog!

Hi Helen & Caroline here the owners at Aura Design, thank you for taking the time to read our blog!

We want to let our customers know what is going on in our flower world with hints and tips, offers and views and anything else flowery!


Hat Boxes

Although we have been using Hat Boxes for absolutely ages for our presentation bouquets, we have now decided to add these as well as our preserved roses to our web shop. Feel free to take a look or give one of our team a call if you need further informaion.

Quiet times????

Usually when we come back after Christmas we have a ittle time to reflect on the previous year, clear the stock room, replenish mirrors, tea lights etc etc and start prepping for the coming months. We really don't know what happened to January this year, we have literally hit the ground running and couldn't be more excited to be working with some really lovely couples in the year ahead. 

We are going to be adding  preserved Roses to our web shop over the next couple of weeks after securing quality products at a reasonable price from one of our trusted wholesalers, so keep a look out for this beautiful product that can be deliverd absoutely anywhere.

Thank you Aura Design

A lovely thankyou from one of our happy customers xx these make the dark cold long days worth every minute xxx

Dear Helen and Caroline
We just wanted to thank you and your colleagues at Aura Design for beautifully decorating the Gold/Blue rooms at Orsett Hall for my 60thbirthday party last Saturday.  
Its amazing how you ladies bring the rooms to life with flowers, balloons, candles etc.  We believe it certainly created a real party atmosphere amongst our family and friends on the night – even the children enjoyed being given balloons to go home with!
From the responses we’ve received from our guests After months of planning this special celebration, it was so good to actually just get on and enjoy the party and that’s exactly what Andrew, myself and all our guests had a FANTASTIC evening!
Our families and friends have given us many compliments about the evening ranging from how lovely the room/hotel looked, how friendly the staff/DJ were and the how good the buffet was displayed and tasted!  So, although, I did thank everyone at Orsett Hall in my speech on the night, perhaps you could kindly ensure this message reaches all those concerned.  Who knows you may even receive further bookings in the future!
Thanks for making my 60th birthday such a special and memorable occasion.
With our very best wishes,
Vicky and Andrew

A BLOOMING busy week!

We have had a BLOOMING busy week this week. It's been absolutely freezing in our shop, lovely for the flowers, not so good for the workers! We have ordered some beautiful new hat boxes ready for VALENTINES DAY and MOTHERS DAY. We've made a beautiful RED ROSE display of garlands and hanging roses with draping crystals in the shop to remind everyone that Valentine's Day is just around the corner. We've had  the privilege of providing flowers for 3 FUNERALS this week for 3 lovely families who have entrusted us with making fitting SYMPATHY TRIBUTES for their loved ones.  FUNERAL FLOWERS mean so much to the families and friends that receive them and we get so much pleasure making everything from a basic OASIS or CROSS to more bespoke items like BUTTERFLIES and SWORDS. Feel free to have a look through our galleries for inspiration for WEDDINGS, FUNERALS or just PARTIES, BABY SHOWERS, PROMS etc. X
