Who are stems of Taunton?

Based in Taunton, Stems of Taunton offers a personal service, using all fresh flowers from our international suppliers and flowers from local British growers. This makes sure that we are giving you the best there is to offer.

My name is Sallyann Reed and I have lived in the lovely market town of Taunton since I was 11 years old. I have two grown up daughters and some say I’m a crazy cat lady. I initially trained many years ago in interior design. Not content with a career in interiors, I felt I needed a new direction to express my creativity. I see floristry as art, like fashion and design, using textures colours and shapes to bring out your personality and style.

Fully trained in all aspects of floristry and giving a professional service to our customers for over the last 15 years, I am experienced at working both in the commercial and independent sector. I am also qualified to teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector. We specialise in Wedding Flowers, Funeral Tributes and events of all sizes, or just for that beautiful bouquet for someone special, we will ensure everything is perfect. 

Wedding Flowers

Wedding Flowers

This is going to be one of the most important days of your life. Let us be part of your special day by creating floral designs that are unique to you and let your personality and style shine through. We are dedicated to telling your story through extraordinary and memorable designs. Whether you prefer simple, relaxed styles or something out of the ordinary, Stems will make it a celebration to remember.

After an initial complimentary telephone conversation, our wedding consultation service comprises of a face to face consultation, bespoke design service, and a detailed cost proposal – all tailored to you.

Funeral Flowers

At this difficult time, we can at least make choosing, ordering and sending flowers a little easier for you. As seen in our brochure, we have carefully selected some of our beautiful, classic designs from caskets sprays to hearts, posies, crosses and lettering.

Should you require something bespoke or a little out of the ordinary, then we are happy to discuss this with you, by appointment, in the comfort of your own home, or alternately via your chosen funeral home. Once ordered you can have the peace of mind knowing that the flowers you have chosen will be delivered to the undertakers the morning of the funeral and will play a vital part in saying goodbye to your loved one.

Event & Corporate Flowers

It takes vision, creativity, and technical skill to create and maintain event flowers that enhance and embrace the building, and most important it offers the warmest of welcomes.

Restaurants and bars also play an important role in creating a welcoming environment for guests. Not only do they embrace the overall experience, but as with the menu, they can reflect the seasons with exciting displays changing each week. We are dedicated to working closely with each client to achieve and deliver inspiring designs.
