Finishing The Bloom & Blossom Florist Shop

Hello folks,

Hope you are all feeling well after the Easter Holidays. I had a good Easter as I celebrated it with my family like I always do. The kids enjoyed opening their presents that they got from the Easter Bunny.

So today I will be sharing with you the finishing touches of the Bloom & Blossom Florist Shop. I am really thrilled that it turned out the way it is now.

So I have added more clients to the shop itself and added more minis. I like these resin figurines especially working on a modern project. They look more realistic than the normal porcelain dolls. 

I really tried my best to give more details to the whole room.

Then once again I added more miniatures in the staff room.

I have made some more miniatures out of polymer clay and ceramics. I have made some dirty dishes, and added more detail to the kitchenette. I also added some kitchen accessories that fitted in the scene perfectly.

Finally I added the wall lights and I guess this is another finished project. I never imagined that it would turn out like this. From a kid toy to a collectors dolls house. I just love it.

Here are some shots of the whole project

Hope you have enjoyed seeing this project. I have also started working on a new project and I am hooked by it already. So please do keep tuned.

Hope to see you soon and take care.

Adding more miniatures to the Staff's Room in the Florist Shop

Hi Everyone, 

How are you? Hope you are all fine. Have you got used to change in the hour? It has been almost a week now and it is still hard for me to wake up early. Although I must admit that I like the idea of having a longer day. The weather here is getting warmer and warmer. I wanted to welcome a new follower of my blog; Welcome Kati!

Today I will be sharing with you some miniatures that I have been making for the staff/pantry room which comes above the florist shop. 

So my first miniatures that I have made where actually ring files and flower magazines. I have designed the ring binders and printed them. To make the rings inside the binders I used jump rings that you find from craft shops to make jewelry. I wanted to make these files  where the florist can keep his paper work. I have also created two open files where you can see bridal flower arrangements. Florists tend to keep a portfolio of their work to show to their customers. I have also printed some flower magazine covers and downsized them. I am really happy how they turned out

What I wanted to make in the room was a scene with clients. Here we have Trisha who is the co-ordinator when it comes to big occasions. She helps with ideas and give advice to her clients. Trisha is also Jack's wife. At the moment Trisha is helping Linda who is preparing for her big day. To help her decide on here wedding flowers there are her mother and granny. I am sure they will pull it through as they couldn't have found a better florist.

I have also made some polymer clay miniatures. I have made a laptop for Trisha. A fire extinguisher which every shop or public premises should have. I have filled two mugs of coffee, made some sandwiches so Trisha can server her clients, some dish washing soap and some toiletries for the cubical.

Finally I added some posters to the whole room which I have printed. It made the room look more realistic.

I am really pleased how it all turned out. I still need to add more miniatures to this room especially in the kitchenette. So this is how the room looks like at the moment.

I hope you like what I have done so far.

I also wanted to let you know that as Easter is around the corner I have also made my 10th miniature downloadable book which you can download from this link The Night before Easter.

This book will fit perfectly in a dolls house nursery especially during Easter time. 

Well this is all for today folks. I hope you like what I have made so far. Keep tuned as I will be updating you soon with more progress of this project.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend.

Take Care and see you soon.
