You have to be in it to win it!

Michelangelo is reckoned to have said ‘The greatest danger for us isn’t that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that we aim too low and reach it.

We may be the oldest flower business in Birmingham, but our online business Nelly Kelly is still very new and a bit of an upstart as much as a startup! We have done well in the last 12 months delivering flowers for Valentines and for our darling mums, and even have moved into the Funeral Flowers market. The next 12 months should be exciting for us and also Brummies in general with the Commonwealth Games in June 2022.  One of my mates aimed high when trying for games tickets thinking he would be mostly unsuccessful and got a bill for £1500. Made me chuckle anyway and I think quite a few people are in this boat. 

We are trying to pitch to supply the medallists flowers at the Commonwealth Games and have some meetings lined up.  Who else but the oldest floristry business in Brum?  What a great story that would be.  Watch this space and we’ll let you know if we are successful. 

Well if Michelangelo says go for it, who am I to disagree….?
