We have decorated some of the most glittering parties and weddings of the last three decades, all over the world. Closer to home, we design stunning corporate flowers, delivering into leading London hotels, businesses and private homes every week.

Our luxury hand-tied bouquets can be bought through our online boutique and we offer flower delivery in London and across the UK.

Scissors in back pocket, Paul Thomas still oversees all areas of the business, especially the flowers. It’s what he’s best at after all.

"Florists don't come much better than this"

PAUL THOMAS - THE MAN

Even as a young boy, Paul knew he was destined to devote his life to flowers. In 1981, aged 19, he was guided to train with Mayfair florist Kenneth Turner who rose to fame creating visual extravaganzas for unmissable society events around the world. Today, Paul is one of the leading luxury London florists of his generation, sought after for his sensational signature designs. Gifted with limitless creativity, he again and again creates the absolutely perfect arrangement for the occasion.

THE PAUL THOMAS FLOWERS FAMILY

We call ourselves a family because we all adore flowers and because some of us have been with Paul for 20 years or more. We love what we do and want you to feel excited about your flowers – there’s so much you can do with them when you understand them they way we do.

THE FLOWER MARKET

Every day, without fail, one or more of the team goes to the New Covent Garden Flower Market to buy. It’s our source of inspiration, this unique destination filled with a phenomenal variety of flowers from all over the world. English sweet peas and peonies, Italian stocks and ranunculi, roses from Ecuador, orchids from Malaysia, seasonal English garden foliage – it’s all there at London’s New Covent Garden Flower Market.

ONLY THE BEST...

It’s extremely important that we get the best flowers. By being at the market all the time, we see everything that comes in. It keeps things exciting for us and means we’ll always find you the perfect flowers at the best price.

OUR HISTORY

Born in Mayfair...Paul Thomas opened his eponymous flower shop in 1989 in Mayfair’s Shepherd Market, central London. An iconic part of this historic London enclave, Paul and his team sold luxury flowers from the boutique for almost three decades. The shop was very much part of the local community and friends, neighbours and clients would regularly pop in for a chat or to order a hand-tied bouquet.

Royal Connections

Privileged to work on many of the birthday celebrations and weddings of various members of the Royal Family, Paul quickly became synonymous with awe-inspiring decorations and a press-worthy portfolio of clients, encompassing the great and the good internationally.

The Ritz

In 2004 Paul Thomas became florist to the iconic Ritz Hotel, a happy relationship that continues to blossom. Here, Paul can indulge his passion for elegant Edwardian style but he does so with a fresh, modern approach. We are onsite virtually every day, creating, installing and maintaining the hotel’s celebrated flower displays. And during the festive period, our magnificent decorations bring traditional Christmas opulence to this historic London hotel.

New Beginnings

In the spring of 2015 we took on additional office and studio space in Battersea, southwest London – right on the doorstep of the New Covent Garden Flower Market. Here, our clients can see our floral designers at work and discover our ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ of wonderful props.

Paul Thomas Flowers at 21

To celebrate the 21st birthday of Paul Thomas Flowers we produced this short film.

The idea behind the film was to mark the achievement of 21 years of Paul Thomas Flowers, Paul's 'coming of age' as it were! We wanted to demonstrate the diversity of the floral design arena and show you from Paul's perspective what it is that inspires him, how he approaches each party and exactly what it takes to create the unique events that we are involved in.

In watching this film we hope you get a sense of the person behind the business and how it all began, this is an intimate look at one of the UK's leading floral decorators with personal insights from his family, clients and leading figures in the party and events arena.
