ABOUT US

Where it all began…

Silver Birch Bouquets is a small family run floristry business based in the historic market town of the beautiful Vale of Evesham.
Headed by the brother and sister duo, James and Hayley Birch, Silver Birch Bouquets offer a wide selection of traditional and contemporary floral services.

Growing up as children in the market town of the Vale of Evesham, the siblings have always had an appetite for the beauty that nature has to offer. With such an abundance of green space to explore on their doorstep they were always occupied and mesmerized by the outdoors and its offerings. Overlooking the tree-lined Battleton Brook was the view from their family home in Woodlands and it was there that most of their days were spent – being at one with the outdoors. The simplicity of making a daisy chain in the summer sunshine and the smell of freshly mowed meadows evoke such heart felt memories of those youthful days spent amongst the trees, meadows and flowers. It was then no surprise that when an opportunity came up to work with a florist in the Pembrokeshire coastal town of Tenby, that James grabbed the opportunity with both hands and that is where the Silver Birch flower story begins.

MEET THE TEAM

 James Birch
James Birch
James’s floristry journey started quite unexpectedly in a small traditional flower shop in Tenby. Working in a neighbouring restaurant James took an interest in the flower shop and started as a volunteer. Once he was there the enthusiasm grew and grew and so he eventually moved to a more contemporary and modern florist in the same town.

After studying at Usk College to complete a diploma in floral design he then returned to his roots in the Vale of Evesham. Back home he started and built up his reputation as a florist within his own right. There he was supported by loyal family and friends and ran his business from the garden shed with the help of his sister, Hayley.
Through word of mouth and testimonials on social media his reputation grew and when the opportunity came to buy a local florist shop the family jumped at the chance to continue a family tradition; historically James’s grandfather was a local market gardener, including growing flowers, and his grandmother owned 2 flower shops on the high street in Evesham in the 1950’s and 60’s

James has now been creating floral designs for over 8 years and is always ready to try something new and unique. James keeps himself at the forefront of floral design by relentless research and experimenting with latest techniques and developments within the industry. You will regularly see him showcasing his latest designs at exclusive wedding venues and fayres within the local area.

Hayley Birch
Hayley Birch
Hayley’s love affair with flowers began when she started to assist her brother, James, when setting up his small, home run business. After a long career of working with children and, once the purchase of the shop was decided, Hayley committed to a career in floristry by completing a course at Moreton Morrell college in Warwickshire.

Her strength and confidence as a florist has grown since working at the family business and is particularly evident in the quality of the hand tied bouquets that she produces whilst keeping check on the shop front.

Hayley’s creativity and past experience of working with children is apparent during the children’s workshops that she runs regularly during the school holidays; she provides fun and alternative activities using seasonal themes and flowers.

Hayley is enjoying the challenge of working in her own flower shop and having a young family and wondering where this creative journey is leading. She is particularly keen on developing and sharing her horticultural knowledge with the customers that visit the shop and she looks forward to welcoming you all.
