Local Blairgowrie florist, Something Special Flowers has been accepted into the exclusive Good Florist Guide, the gold standard of floristry and the only merit-based guide to the finest florists in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Acknowledged as the ‘little black book’ of the very best British and Irish florists Something Special Flowers were awarded the prestigious accolade last week. Owners Stephen and Jillian Page described themselves as delighted and excited for the new designs and creations which lay ahead.
No-one can buy their way into the Guide. To be part of it, florists undergo a rigorous evaluation process before being approved. Something Special Flowers submitted a detailed description of their floristry business, including the range available and services offered as well as images of their business premises, their design work, their team and even the delivery vehicle! It was then assessed by industry experts to ensure it met the strict criteria of not just offering gorgeous designs, but also the best service and value for bespoke floristry and flowers.

Caroline Marshall-Foster, Editor of industry bible The Florist magazine, and founder of Good Florist Guide set it up as a way to ensure customers always receive top quality floristry from businesses that value excellent customer service.
Caroline said, “You can buy flowers virtually anywhere these days. But nothing really beats the experience of receiving fabulous flowers from a truly bespoke florist and without it costing an arm or a leg. The Good Florist Guide is my way of sharing all that is good about floristry. It allows consumers to know that the florist they use is able and willing to go the extra mile and make all their purchases, big or small, truly special.”
