Est. 2015

Welcome to Blackboard and Blossom

Established in 2015 after 8 years in the industry and locating to Derby, 

“I opened Kelsey Cross Florist to bring a more intensive range of floral work to the area. Originally working from a home studio, I wanted  to offer full floral design and creative design including venue design for weddings, with chair covers, favours and tables totally covered under one roof! I then expanded to a bricks and mortar shop, now based in the Eagle Market then decided to rebrand, we became the Blackboard and Blossom you see today! I continue to find and offer eco friendly products in the shop along with new and intercontinal influenced design for my customers to pick up. I hope to bring a new fresh light to floristry in Derby and hope you’ll find anything you could possibly need! I’d love you see you all and share a love for floral things!”

Kelsey Cross - Owner


"Professional, creative and well organised"

"Our bouquets, button holes, altar flowers, centre pieces, name cards, postbox and table plan were all exquisitely beautiful, perfectly matched to the colour scheme, and exactly what we wanted. Kelsey is a true professional, creative and well organised, I would thoroughly recommend her to any bride."

"Will definitely be using again!"

"Gorgeous flowers for Mother’s Day and excellent service, will definitely be using again! Thanks again"

"I couldn't recommend her enough!"

"Kelsey was absolutely fantastic in arranging everything for our wedding. She did our invitations, order of services, bouquets, table decoration, post box, and the room decoration too! It all came out incredible and I couldn't recommend her enough! Thank you Kelsey"

"Excellent service and an amazing talent for beautiful, colourful arrangements"

"I was the lucky winner of one of Kelsey’s arrangements and I’ve ordered flowers from Kelsey on a few occasions for both collection and delivery. Gorgeous flowers, excellent service and an amazing talent for beautiful, colourful arrangements. Kelsey is so helpful and talented. I’d really recommend Kelsey and will be returning for more flowers"
