Sisters Chelsy Sharpe and Lacie Cambridge are saying it with flowers – and much more – at their shop, Florals, in Long Sutton.

Chelsy (27) and Lacie (23) are catering for all kinds of family occasions from their premises in Hoddins Way, including parties, christenings, weddings, funerals and anniversaries.

“We don’t just do flowers,” says Chelsy. “We can literally organise the whole party, really.”

Among items in stock are a big selection of helium balloons, a wide range of cards for special occasions and wrapping paper.

There’s also a sweet cart for hire.

The sisters have set a room aside so customers can discuss arrangements for their big events.

And they are determined to keep their prices “reasonable”, while maintaining the look of luxury.

Chelsy was running the business from home for a start but decided the switch to new premises would give their customers a greater opportunity to look at the goods they have on offer and to discuss services face to face.

Lacie said: “We just wanted to open a shop where the prices aren’t expensive.

“We are mums ourselves and we know how much kids’ parties can cost – and weddings.

“We wanted to have things at a reasonable price, affordable, but still maintain the luxury side of it.

“We are very family-orientated and, because of that, we have a little private room where we can talk to customers.”

The sisters are ex- pupils of the former George Farmer School at Holbeach.

Chelsy is married to Danny and they have three children. Lacie is married to Jarred and they have four daughters.
