What a week! Eight months after spotting an empty space which screamed out to be filled with beautiful things, Blush Parnell has opened its doors to the public. Retail was never on Kelly’s agenda – there is a natural fear of the unknown and the fickle nature of the retail world – but with a lot of sleepless nights spent envisaging a way to create a space that offered something a bit different; something that we have always wished for ourselves – she took the proverbial plunge and decided to give it a go! God loves a trier right?
Blush Parnell is our dream home – it is a space where we can create floral arrangements for weddings and events in a place of beauty, as opposed to the garage at Kelly’s place! It thrills us to be able to share the exciting, mad, messy chaos that is involved in shaping our brides’ vision for their big day, or our client’s brief for their event. While we work at the back of our gorgeous brass workstation, the rest of the store is yours for perusing – you are free to wander and watch the process, whilst gazing at the gifts we have carefully collected to enhance your life. ‘Beautiful Things’ will always be on offer at Blush Parnell, and we aim to constantly refresh the offerings so there is always something new to treat yourself or that special someone with.
Our flowers – what we are ALL about – are sourced direct from the grower as frequently as possible – which enables us to stock the best quality blooms – and they are exclusive to Blush – meaning we really do offer something particularly unique. Our Columbian Roses in particular – aka. heaven on a stem – will blow your socks off, and they will continually be available to the public to take home per stem in one of our custom-designed and very practical Blush carriers.
We can’t wait to see where this adventure takes us – the phone is already ringing off the hook and our new website is being pumped with orders! With this blog we will provide a commentary about our collaborations, events, gift items and the growers and team that make Blush Parnell what it is.
So pop in anytime to see what we are about, grab some fresh cut flowers to grace your table at home or gift to a friend – we hope you enjoy our new home as much as we already do!
