The Flower B

I guess from an early age I  had a passion for décor and design,  I remember  helping my dad to decorate my bedroom and getting  

cross as it was not as perfect as I expected it to be  (the perfectionist was in me even back then).

After leaving school I  headed off to college where I gained a diploma in display and design this led me into the world of window dressing and merchandising,  I  soon progressed into a career in retail management working for Wallis,  Selfridges and Evans to name but a few and  there I stayed for many years.

After having my two children and the mile stone that is turning 40 , I suddenly thought what am I going to do with the rest of my life.  Whist styling out my 70’s themed party the bug bit me and Sparkles of Cheshire was born.  Balloons,  Chair covers and venue dressing were all on the list and I quickly realised that flowers needed to be there too.  So I took myself back off to college to study floristry,

never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought I’d do so well gaining a distinction for each module.

Yay I’m a qualified florist!!

I have been working part time in a local florist for a couple of years to gain experience whilst also  working freelance under my original business name Sparkles of Cheshire.  However the name just wasn’t working for me with me now being able to construct

beautiful funeral pieces  so with that in mind  my new name was born.

Thats The Flower B with a and not an ee!

You see my name is Bev Barber and I hope to meet you soon xxxx
