As high streets spring back into life, lovers of bespoke floral creations, statement pieces and original art will adore a new shop that's finally opened in Hatfield.
Bradhams Fantastic Flowers, which includes a design studio and art gallery, opened to the public this week following the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Run and launched by floral stylist Theresa Bradstreet, Bradhams can be found at 38 Fore Street in Old Hatfield.
It has all the makings of a popular destination for discerning visitors to the historic old town, especially those to Hatfield House, which is just up the road from the shop door.
Bradhams Fantastic Flowers is owned by Theresa Bradstreet, who trained in London in all aspects of floristry at both the world-famous McQueens Flower School and under the expert tuition of Judith Blacklock at her internationally renowned flower school in Knightsbridge.
Visitors will not only be able to buy fresh flowers, or order bouquets with 24 hours’ notice, but will also benefit from ‘eco- friendly’ floral solutions.
There’s a selection of dried flowers and grasses, both in ready-made bouquets and in bunches of single varieties, which can be created for specific colour schemes or theme.
