When we think Christmas, many of us think of the floral arrangements we have to organise, from the traditional Christmas wreath on the front door to the poignant laying of the wreath on the graves of loved ones.
Christmas is that special time when the holly and ivy come into their own and we use flowers to decorate our homes in a way we normally wouldn’t.
OL Flowers in Thomas Street, Armagh is a creative, efficient and friendly florist and has been in operation for over 25 years.
Proprietor Annette Foster has grown the Armagh florist over the last nine years to provide additional services of wedding bouquets and commercial arrangements.
Typically, a centrepiece is used to set the theme of Christmas, and help to decorate for a special occasion, with many centrepieces being made up with seasonal flowers and, sometimes, contain a candle in the centre. The table centrepiece dates back to Roman times when the Romans used foliage to decorate their tables.
“This year people may not be hosting the large family gatherings like previous years, but making sure your table is spruced up is a tradition you can’t forget,” said Annette.
“Maybe you are looking for the perfect gift for a loved one who has everything? Then our centrepieces are exactly what you need – everyone loves a tradition.”
OL Flowers also have a large stock of wreaths both artificial and real to create curbside appeal and with delivery within a 10 – 15 mile radius of the shop, delivery is possible to the following towns, villages and townlands surrounding Armagh City: Ballymacnab, Benburb, Blackwatertown, Caledon, Keady, Killylea, Loughall, Madden, Markethill, Moy, Middletown, Milford, Richhill, Tandragee and Tullysarran.
The shop also consists of a selection of gift ideas which are ideal as stocking fillers for the main event.
