When Sian, owner of Didsbury’s Flower Lounge on Barlow Moor Road, asked Didsbury Life if we’d put up a competition to celebrate the shop’s birthday, I thought she meant her half year anniversary. When she explained The Flower Lounge would be one year old on October 6th, we were astounded. Although it seems that we know Sian really well, and she’s more a friend now than a business acquaintance, it did seem that the year had flown by ridiculously quickly.

Sian has been an absolute delight to work with, and promote. She totally understands our ethos of collaboration. She completely understands working with complementary businesses. She’s a real advocate of promoting independent businesses. And, even better – she’s loves Twitter as much as we do! It’s amazing how quickly we can communicate & do things via the medium of our friend, the big blue bird!

Since joining Didsbury Life, Sian has forged fantastic relationships with lots of our businesses. Look out for her flowers in Rhubarb Restaurant and The White Closet, West Didsbury (among many others!). She’s worked on weddings with Nikki at The White Closet, supplying the most amazing wedding flowers to sit alongside the elegant wedding dresses – a special summer memory for us was Jess & Jon’s wedding at The Albert Club, with Sian’s beautiful English flowers making it a real occasion to remember. Sian has also worked with Laura from Didsbury’s AiryFairy Cakes , as well as providing a number of stunning displays for art exhibitions at Didsbury Life.

In the words of Sian –

“What a year? Roughly 35,000 roses de-thorned, 72 weddings completed and lots of happy customers. I could have never imagined that people would get behind us and show us as much support as they have done. I’m glad that people get what we’re about. We take a personal approach, we listen to our customers and take on board what they say. I’d like to say a massive thank you to all local residents and businesses.  It’s been a fantastic first year and I look forward to many more!”
