With only four more shopping days left, all systems are running at 110% to deliver the most beautiful Christmas flower bouquets, table centre arrangements and gifts to more and more customers every year.

Christmas is one of the busiest time of the year at Lamber de Bie Flowers. It starts not long after the previous Christmas when Lamber & Pat (co-Owner of Lamber de Bie Flowers) sit down at length and discuss every detail of the season with every member of their team from the florist to the delivery person as well as their trusted suppliers. This allows Lamber 12 Months of preparation for the next Christmas season. In the first two months of the year Lamber visits a number of International Christmas and gift tradefairs in the UK, Germany, France and ofcourse his native Holand, were a large proportion of the decorations for next Christmas are purchased. This year Lamber de Bie Flowers will be going for the fourteened time trough the same routine.

Four shopping days left means for the Florists at Lamber de Bie that apart from four busy days there’s also 3 late nights ahead of us. During the day when all 3 of our shops are open all day from 8am all hands are on deck to serve lots of customers that call into our shop to choose or order the perfect centre piece that will be central to this years Christmas dinner table, order Christmas bouquets for their own home or a friend or family member or look after a customer that would like to say thank you to their customers with a special floral gift from Lamber de Bie for their support.

On top of that there is the “every day” events in the flower shops; Today in or shop in the Kilbarry Centre on the Tramore Road in Waterford everything stopped for a moment when a young woman came into our shop to personally thank our florists for the amazing bouquet of 100 large red roses she received trough our shop this week. The proud photo’s she showed us on her phone and the enormous smile made us all appreciate once again how lucky we all are to be part of this amazing business. On the same day from our Kilkenny shop we delivered an amazing display of flowers for a wedding where the bride wanted us to decorate each of the tables with individual floral displays as well as filling the church with stunning wedding flowers. at our flowershop in Ardkeen Quality Foodstore, on the Dunmore road in waterford there was a very special moment today when a customer called to thank our florist for the way we looked her at a recent loss in her family.

Lamber and his team of florists have created a stunning selection of floral masterpieices for Christmas 2014. The designes have been tried, tested and photographed and are now available on our florist website http://www.lamberdebie.ie

Fresh flowers have arrived from Holland over the past few days and will arrive every day upto Christmas eve where they are sorted, checked and conditioned, ready to be distributed to our 3 flower shops in Waterford & Kilkenny. A team of dedicated and passionate experts are making sure that whatever ariives at a Lamber de Bie Flowershop is always the best quality of fresh flowers and plants.

Today, four days before Christmas we can truly say that Lamber de Bie Flowers is ready for Christmas. Our shops are filled with beautiful hand tied bouquets starting from €20.00 upto…….. well – you name it, a selection of table centre pieces in every size and shape, and a selection of christmas plants and planted arrangements to bring colour, scent and warmth to your home or as a gift for a dear one. We also think of thos that are not here this Christmas with stunning flowers and wreaths for the grave.

Our shops are open every day from now to Christmas from 8 am untill Christmas eve on 5pm when we will be closing our doors for a shrot but I believe a well deserved rest and some family time for our florists.

Ireland’s Top50 stores

Retail Excellence Ireland Awards 2010 –

announcement of

Ireland’s Top50 stores

Wednesday 6th October 2010 –  Retail Excellence Ireland have today announced the Top50 stores in Ireland as part of the Retail Excellence Ireland Awards in association with the Sunday Independent to be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Galway in November. The awards will be attended by over 500 representatives of the Irish retail industry and hosted by Miriam O’Callaghan.

Established by industry group, Retail Excellence Ireland (REI), the awards recognise and reward the highest standards of excellence across the entire retail industry – not just one particular sector.

Chief Executive of Retail Excellence Ireland, David Fitzsimons, said: “This year the standard of stores did not fail to impress with a very high calibre turnout of applicants.  In spite of the challenging trading conditions this year, we still received more than 400 entries from across the country, which proves how important these awards are to store owners and their employees. To achieve a Top50 award these stores have proven that they are vigorously investing in their businesses and their people and remain true to what is best about Irish retail” he said.

The rigorous selection process involves a mystery customer visiting each entered store to complete a full visit report, which is initially narrowed down to a ‘Top 100’ list.  A fully trained retail assessor then conducts a thorough store assessment, which added to photographic evidence results in the selection of the Top50 stores in Ireland.

About Retail Excellence Ireland

Retail Excellence Ireland is the not-for-profit organisation representing more than 600 companies – 8,000 retail stores – more than one third of the total store numbers in the Republic of Ireland. REI’s members collectively employ approximately 100,000 people across all retail sectors ranging from pharmacy and fashion, to grocery and homeware.

A DAY IN THE LIFE….

FLORAL DANCE:

Lamber de Bie dashes between his workshop in Thomastown and shops in Waterford and Kilkenny.

FLOWER
POWER

FLORIST LAMBER DE BIE TELLS CONOR DE LION ABOUT MINDING HIS OWN BLOOMING BUSINESS

MONDAY morning starts early with the arrival of a lorry-load of flowers from Holland. They arrive at about 6am at the workshop witch is near our house in Thomastown. We check the order, put the flowers in vases and store them in a cold room. By 9am we have the van loaded up for delivery to our two stores in Waterford and one in Kilkenny. We buy direct from Holland and pay the daily auction price, plus a commission to our agent. Once the van has left, I get to have breakfast, usually at around 10am.

After the rush of the early morning, I spend a few quiet hours in the office. I deal with email enquiries, mostly about weddings. Our wedding season has definitely got longer in recent years. It stretches trough the whole summer and even takes in some of the spring and autumn. On top of that Christmas and New Years weddings are becoming very popular.

Tuesday is our quietest day and if I get time off this will be it, which is nice because Wednesday morning is our busiest time of the week. This is when we get our main delivery for the week – these are all our wedding flowers and retail stock for the weekend. Because it’s such a big delivery,it’s all hands on deck. The Van delivers to our two shops in Waterford and I take care of Kilkenny.

When I get to the shop, I pitch in to condition, clean and present the blooms. Last Wednesday, there were around 35 orders waiting to be made. Many of them were wrist corsages for debs. Young guys have become a lot more romantic in recent years, asking for specific colours and flowers. They often buy a bouquet for their date’s mother, too.

CONFIDENT

We definitely see more men walk into our shops than we did when we opened 10 years ago. Irish men are a lot more confident about buying flowers and there’s no shame in walking down the street with a colourful bunch for your partner.

Thursday is usually the day to meet the weekend bride. This week I’m doing the church and Marquee for a Waterford wedding. The marquee is in the mother of the groom’s garden so she’ll be meeting us, too. Sometimes it’s tricky to keep everyone happy!

I spend most Fridays doing the arrangements for a wedding the following day, and Saturday morning is an early start to get the bouquets and buttonholes to the bridal party, not to mention decorating the church and venue.

I have to place my order for the following week before lunchtime on Sunday, but I allow myself to have a rest after the business of Saturday before I set my mind to that task.

I’ve noticed a few new occasions where flowers are in demand in recent years. March 8, International Woman’s Day, is a popular celebration among eastern Europeans. They also buy for name days, witch are almost as important as birthdays.

The Story of St. Valentine

The Story of St. Valentine

By Lamber de Bie Dutch Master Florist

Every February the fourteenth, chocolate, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones across the world, all in the name of St. Valentine.

But who is this mysterious saint and why do we celebrate this day.

The history of Valentine’s Day — and its patron saint — is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. So, who was Saint Valentine and how did he become associated with this ancient rite? Today, the Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred.

One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men — his crop of potential soldiers. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.

Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons where they were often beaten and tortured.

According to one legend, Valentine actually sent the first ‘valentine’ greeting himself. While in prison, it is believed that Valentine fell in love with a young girl  “who may have been his jailor’s daughter” who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter, which he signed ‘From your Valentine,’ an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories certainly emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic, and, most importantly, romantic figure. It’s no surprise that by the Middle Ages, Valentine was one of the most popular saints in England and France.

In Great Britain, Valentine’s Day began to be popularly celebrated around the seventeenth century. By the middle of the eighteenth century, it was common for friends and lovers in all social classes to exchange small tokens of affection or handwritten notes. By the end of the century, printed cards began to replace written letters due to improvements in printing technology. Ready-made cards were an easy way for people to express their emotions in a time when direct expression of one’s feelings was discouraged.

According to the American Greeting Card Association, an estimated one billion valentine cards are sent each year in the USA alone, making Valentine’s Day the second largest card-sending day of the year after Christmas.

In addition to the Ireland and the U. K. Valentine’s Day is celebrated very big in the United States, Canada, Mexico, France, and Australia. Countries like Holland and Germany are only in the last few years getting into sending Valentines greetings. And still in very small numbers at that.

Valentine greetings were popular as far back as the Middle Ages (written Valentine’s cards didn’t begin to appear until after 1400), and the oldest known Valentine card is on display at the British Museum.

However the largest percentage of all valentine greetings are still sent by women, Irish men are getting more romantic. Valentines day is the one day that we will see at least as many men in our flower shops as we see woman buying flowers.

Phalaenopsis Orchid

Phalaenopsis Orchids

The Orchid plant, and especially the Phalaenopsis orchid has become the no 1 bestselling houseplant over the past few years. This is no surprise considering the ease of care, their incrediblle beauty and their long life as a houseplant when looked after correctly.

In order to find out how to look after these wonderful flowering house plants, let’s find out some more about the Phalaenopsis Orchid.

Phalaenopsis Orchids, as any other orchid, are epiphytes.

Epiphytes are plant that grows upon or are attached to another plant or object merely for physical support. Epiphytes are found mostly in the tropics and are also known as air plants because they have no attachment to the ground or other obvious nutrient source. They obtain water and minerals from rain and from debris on the supporting plants. Orchids, ferns, and members of the pineapple family are common tropical epiphytes. Lichens, mosses, liverworts, and algae are epiphytes of temperate regions.

Knowing how they grow in their origional habitat will explain us a lot about how we should care for these plants in the home. For those that had a closer look at the soil that your potted Phalaenopsis orchid is planted in will have noticed that it contains of a very loose structure of mostly small pieces of bark. Knowing orchids grow on trees in their natural habitat, were water flows away immediately after rainfall, explains us that we may never have any remaining water in our container after watering our orchid. Over watering is one of the most common causes of orchid plants not surviving in the home.

Always place your Phalaenopsis orchid in a place in your home were you have a relative constant temperature(e.g. sitting room), away from drafts and direct sunlight. Water very moderately and feed once every two weeks when in flower or bud and once every four to six weeks when flowers are finished. Always use special orchid feed, and never more than is indicated on the bottle. Personally I give my orchids half the amount as is written on the bottle to avoid burning the roots.

Your orchid plant can easily flower up to six months at a time. When finished flowering cut the flower stems down to one inch above the second “knot” from the base. This is where your new flower will appear after some patience. Also reduce the water and food you give your plant for approx four months to give the plant a rest period. Leave the plant in the same position and sort of forget about it for a while. When your new flower buds appear you can slightly increase your feeding.

Orchidaceae are cosmopolitan, occurring in almost every habitat apart from deserts and glaciers. The great majority are to be found in the tropics, mostly Asia, South America and Central America, but they are also found above the Arctic Circle, in southern Patagonia and even on Macquarie Island, close to Antarctica.

It is no wonder that it was in Asia, Tokyo to be specific, where I saw the most impressive selection of Phalaenopsis Orchids for sale. After all tropical Asia is home to most known varieties of Orchids (approx: 300 families), followed by tropical America and tropical Africa who are both home to approx: 250 families of Orchids.

In this Tokyo, Orchid Shop, they never watered the plants, however they mist the leaves and the heart of the plant twice daily with pure spring water.

Apart from their wonderful qualities as a stylish, elegant houseplant in our modern homes the Phalaenopsis orchid is becoming increasingly popular as a cut flower mainly used for wedding bouquets and elegant table centre pieces.

In the bouquet above I used the white Phalaenopsis orchid in combination with creme Avalanche roses and pure white Lily of the Valley. A perfectly elegant winter white wedding bouquet.

In this table centre piece I used the smaller lilac Phalaenopsis Orchid as a support to the lilac and peach roses.

This cascading wedding bouquet combines the bright pink “Aqua” Roses with the “Hot Lip” Phalaenopsis Orchid.

This soft and elegant bridal bouquet with a selection of creme and peach roses, Lily of the Valley and soft ferns contributed to a wonderful day for Maria on her wedding day.

I hope that I have helped to grow your enthuasiasm for this wonderful family in the plant world.

For any of you who would like to know more about all varieties of Orchids, were they come from, how to grow them, build up an impressive collection and much more there is a book I bought almost ten years ago and can highly reccommend: Orchids – A Practical Handbook by Brian & Wilma Rittershausen ISBN 1-84309-209-3

The meaning of flowers for weddings

If you plan to walk down the aisle anytime soon, you should be aware that the flowers you carry might say more than you intended. That’s right; most flowers carry a meaning, or a special significance that has been passed down from generation to generation.

We can trace this back to the Victorian Era. It was improper in those days for a man to come out and tell a lady how he felt, so he would choose a flower with special meaning and send it her instead. Because the meaning of flowers was so well known, the woman receiving them understood the message as clearly as if it was written on a piece of paper.

As every flower lover knows, flowers have a language all of their own. Every sentiment can be expressed with flowers. Wedding flowers are no different. For instance, you wouldn’t want to have yellow carnations at your wedding if you knew that yellow carnations mean disappointment and rejection. Make sure you know what the flowers mean before you use them as your wedding flowers.

There is a reason that roses are the most popular choice of flowers for brides. A white rose stands for innocence, beauty and charm-just the traits every bride wants to portray. A bride that chooses red roses for her wedding flowers is sending a message of passion and of fiery love. If dark pink roses are used for a wedding, the couple is expressing a thankfulness that they found each other.

An ivy coloured Rose stands for fidelity in the marriage-something every new couple strives for. Pink roses mean perfect happiness but yellow roses mean jealousy. Sometimes, it’s not the colour that holds the meaning but the type. A tea rose means I’ll always remember you but a dried white rose means I would rather die than lose my virtue. Rosebuds means beauty and youth but roses signify secrecy and silence.

Roses aren’t the only flowers that hold meaning. Lilies are a very popular wedding flower. The most popular type of lily is the Calla Lily, which means beauty. Most lilies have beautiful meanings. The white lily means it’s heavenly to be with you while the yellow lily means I’m walking on air. Did you know that the day lily is the Chinese symbol for Mother? The tiger lily means wealth and pride.

Not all flowers have negative meanings; there are very few negative meanings for tulips. Tulips in general mean the perfect lover; this might be a good one to tuck into the buttonhole on his tux. Red tulips are a declaration of love while a yellow tulip means there is sunshine in your smile. If you are having a spring wedding, there is simply no better way to express your love for your future spouse than by carrying a bouquet of tulips. They are not only beautiful, but speak of an undying love.

There are some flowers you can just look at and assume you know what they mean. Never be too hasty in assuming anything. For instance, when you look at a cactus you would think that there had to be a negative meaning for it – wrong. A cactus means endurance and forever. This fits if you think about the cactus; they can survive anything.

There are so many different types of wedding flowers that no one could name them all but here are a few more. Peonies mean shame. Orchids are the Chinese symbol for many children.

No matter what wedding flowers you pick, no one is really going to know the meaning unless you tell them. Your wedding flowers, like your wedding, should be memorable and not based on superstition. Finding the meanings of flowers is like being superstitious about the groom seeing the bride in her wedding dress before the wedding. We make our own luck.

As you can see, the flowers that you choose for your wedding will definitely set the mood. Knowing that, before you select your flowers, determine what type of wedding and reception event you want to have. Once you do that, choosing the flowers will be a breeze.
