We thought you would like to know more about our new high summer 2021 collection of bold beautiful and unique dried flowers 'To be beside the seaside collection’, and what inspired its creation.
As many of you lovely people know, we are based in Dorset, and the Hooper family have lived  here for a very long time. As with many areas of the United Kingdom there is some of the most gorgeous scenery and fauna all around us, and huge bold contrasts within that; from green rolling hills to cliffs, huge forests to marshland and sand dunes to beaches with matching boldness of colour, scents and highlights to match: we wanted to bring some of this beauty to you.
For our ‘To be beside the seaside collection’ shoot we headed off to the beautiful Hengistbury Head in Dorset, which we can’t quite believe is right on our doorstep! It was the perfect location with its sandy beaches, pretty beach huts and glorious sea. We may have gone on the hottest day of the year so far however the sun was definitely shining perfectly for us.  

Our newest baked blossoms collection is inspired by the Dorset seascape of sandy beaches, stunning dunes, pastel beach huts and the tranquil sea bringing all the vibrant, calming and beautiful colours into your home, through eight new designs. Here is a little description of the thought and inspiration behind each one.

Each bouquet is made bespoke by hand in our Happy Blossoms studio so they will each differ slightly from the photos which makes them truly unique! All of the eight designs come in three sizes, small, medium and large: the pictures featured in this blog are all medium size bunches.  Baby bunches (with a cute little vase) are available in three designs: the Surf the Wave, the Pastel Paddle and the Peaches Dunes.

We hope you love them as much as we love bringing them to you. Every THB baked blossom bunch is made individually with love and care just for you by one of our professional florists in our barn in Dorset. They are technically and composition checked to ensure that they are the most beautiful design you could have and we are very proud that we take our time and care over each one to ensure they are perfect before sending them out in our gorgeous bespoke boxes with handwritten messages.

We hope you enjoy these very special bunches.
