How We Got Our Start
Based in Southport, Flowers for keeps is a small business run by me, Emily. I am wedding mad and actually began my flower journey when planning my own wedding. I love how real high quality artificial and silk flowers look and they really are the most lovely keepsake from your big day.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are your flowers made from?
Silk flowers derived their name from over one-hundred years ago when they were sewn from silk. While we still use the term silk flowers most flowers are made from polyester thanks to their low cost, durability and ability to accept dyes. Some other stems such as berries and other fillers may be made from plastic and most stems contain wires to make the flowers stiffer but also give some flexibility which is needed for arranging.
Why pick synthetic flowers over real ones?
Artificial flowers have grown more and more popular over the last few years. The days of the widely viewed opinion that synthetic flowers looked cheap and fake are long gone. The very realistic look, durability and low maintenance of faux flowers has made them a popular choice for home decor, gifting and special events such as weddings. Artificial wedding bouquets have grown in popularity as a great keepsake from such a special event and for individuals with allergies to fresh flowers. Artificial flowers also offer achance to be able to use certain flowers that would otherwise be difficult to source due to seasonality.

I had so many comments about my beautiful bouquet, About half way through the day the venue manager asked if I would like her to put my bouquet in some water for a bit, I was like ‘they’re artificial’ she couldn’t believe it! so thank you so much!
I asked Flowers for Keeps to do my wedding flowers, Emily has been amazing from the moment I messaged her to ask if she could do them. She has messaged me about any little detail regarding my bouquets and was always on hand to answer any questions I had. When the flowers were finished, she kindly dropped them off and offered her help if they needed rearranging! When I first saw my flowers I couldn't believe the quality and how realistic they looked. I would highly recommend Flowers for Keeps! And thankyou so much Emily you have done an amazing job and I will be forever grateful.
I sent all my ideas to Emily with inspo pictures and she bought my ideas to life with the most beautiful flowers and ensured that even though I’m not local she got the best delivery service for me. She gave me all the info I needed for the flowers and what works and what doesn’t work, sent me regular updates, was so honest about sizes of bouquets and everything else needed and sent me pictures along way of where she was up to and made me absolutely love planning with her to make the flowers perfect for me! My wedding is next year and she has honestly made me even more excited to show these flowers off to everyone, she was a delight to work with and I would recommend her to everyone and would definitely pick artificial flowers over real ones every time, the fact I get to keep this beautiful bouquet forever is amazing!! Thank you so so much Emily! You really bought my ideas to life in an even more amazing way that i could have imagined! I ended up getting all my bridesmaids bouquets, my bouquet, button holes and centre piece flowers from her and they are all perfect and go amazing together - they also look so real and extremely good quality and colours!
I contacted Emily after coming across Flowers for Keeps on Instagram and from the first emails back and forth she was amazing. I was so pleased with the flowers for my wedding and with the customer service I received from Emily at every stage. We worked through ideas and she sent through lots of pictures of the flowers as she was making them to ensure I was happy with everything. I got so many complements on my flowers, and the best bit is they are now in a vase in my house to remember the day.
I get to see my wedding bouquet every single day, as beautiful as it was the day I got married. A beautiful arrangement I get to keep and love forever. Totally recommend Flowers for Keeps!
Could not recommend Flowers for Keeps enough! My bouquet and our buttonholes were absolutely beautiful! They were exactly what I had imagined and I am so happy that I get to keep them forever! So beautiful and look amazing in real life and in pictures! Thank you so much! Xx
My wedding was this week so I can FINALLY scream from the roof tops how incredibly talented and wonderful Emily is! She is the wonder woman behind Flowers for Keeps. I've counted myself lucky everyday that I found her. I'd been let down by other companies but knew from the start this lady meant business. She took my vision (if you can call it that) and ran with it. Of all the florists I spoke to, she was only one who asked me where I was getting married, what the theme was and many other details. She truly gets to know her clients and works her magic to create something beautiful. Our theme was pretty much rustic Autumn - nothing too fancy and she created beautiful buttonholes, garlands and my flower crown. I'm already eyeing up more pieces for our home and gifts for family and friends! THANK YOU for everything you have done for us. #CloseWedding2020
I can not recommend Emily enough, she went beyond what I thought I wanted. I had been searching for a while for someone who could create just what I wanted, as I couldn’t find the design for the hair comb that I had pictured. I’m so thankful that I stumbled upon Flowers for Keeps on Facebook, Emily was more than willing to custom make my hair comb and two corsages-just the way I had pictured them. After showing her a couple of images she knew just what to do. I was met with an incredibly friendly, efficient and reasonabley priced service. When my order arrived it look even better in person! Our wedding has been delayed till next year due to COVID but I can’t wait to show them off on our special day.
