BLOOMS are being prepared for what looks set to be yet another blooming good Press Ball.

Christine's Florists in Bramford Road, Ipswich, is for the sixth year running arranging the floral table displays – which at the end of the ball could raise even more money for Disability Care Enterprise.

The 30 table decorations are in gold pottery pots holding gold roses, a colourful touch to signify the Goldfinger theme of the evening and the Queen's golden jubilee year, said florist Christine Hurst.

"We have done the table displays every year since the Press Ball started and each time there is a theme.

"This time it is James Bond's Goldfinger and so the gold roses will be in keeping with that," she said.

"The nice thing about doing the displays is not only that they help with the setting but that they are sold off at the end of the evening, giving more money to the cause," she added.

Flowers will be arranged fresh tomorrow morning by Christine and her staff, Chris Rudland, Julie Howlett, Irene Ward, Sam Read and Lizzie Howell.

"Lizzie is my daughter," said Christine, adding: "she has now joined me in the business after completing her college training."
