Would rose by any other name… la-di-da-da-da. Okay, okay, It seems it is hard to write about flowers without dropping some clichéd line from a long-dead poet, but I will see what I can do.
The Urban Flower company bring a fresh approach to floristry, creating fun and funky designs for all occasions. They use their Crouch End location to supply seasonal products to the local celebrities and also have a large collection of local business vying for their creations.
The shop is a heaven for anyone looking for a little something to brighten their home or hide a forgotten anniversary. At this time of year, the smell of pine hangs in the air as the rows of evergreens stand proudly in the window.
Their website, listed below, contains a cracking portfolio of the work they have done at weddings and events throughout the year. Each bouquet is individually tailored to the preferences of the customers, ensuring a personal touch and unique creation. With a meticulous attention to detail, they make something perfect, for any occasion.
I think that flowers can turn any 'studenty' flat into a cool looking boho- hang out. Most of my friends agree that you become and adult when you start framing your posters, putting flowers into vases and owning a piece of wood you keep just to stir paint. Urban Flower Company can (probably) help you with two of these things.
