Competition Time

Ok, heads up... Competition time!

Here's the deal.

I need a new name! I mean what's in a name? Everything. In order to make a business bloom you need to give it some love, right? So I want you to give my company some love.

With U in Mind is currently the gift and craft side of our company, but I want you to help out and give me a name. Being an experienced florist who is going to offer the arrangement to the gift, the carnation to Mothers Day and of course the Poinsettia to the Christmas creation I need a name that is going to ring right with you, the customer, follower and fan!!

What I need you to do is leave you ideas below. Post a comment with your business name for our Florist store. We will be running the competition for one month - closing date the 16th of March!

And yes, I am offering a prize. Not only does the winner get to have their company name idea put to my blog, my Facebook page and my business cards, you get one of my flowers arrangements too. It is an artificial arrangement, but that means it doesn't matter where you are, you will get your prize regardless of distance.

Here's the prize!

So remember - comment with you idea below and I will notify the winner on March 16th!

Just to get you started here are some ideas: Wild about Flowers, Petite Petals, Floral Frenzy....

Ready set... GO!

Im new to this so please bear with me,i have been doing floristry since i was 16 years old,it is a major part of my life and is something i have a great passion for.
my favourite is furneral  especially Gypsy furnerals,as they always pushed my talents.
3 years ago i came so close to owning my own shop but at the time my father in law was seriously ill,so i decided to walk away to look after him.
In a way there is regret but family come first,if i hadnt had walked away ,i would nt of met my partner in crime Kat at with u in mind.
