Sue Tyer is best known in Ripponden village for opening and running the green door café for fifteen years. But as they say, “A change is as good as a rest” and Sue decided to sell the business and let someone else take it on. It was only once the business had sold that Sue thought to herself “What should I do now?”

It took her six months to work out what was right for her next, but in the summer of 2016 Sue opened Graceful Lily’s florist and gift shop. Graceful Lily’s is a small, friendly, business with a big heart situated in the centre of Ripponden by the traffic lights, just a few doors down from Sue’s old haunt.

At Graceful Lily’s Sue works alongside another Sue, this works quite well for the customers. They can walk and say “Good Morning Sue” safe in the knowledge that whoever’s there that day will have got the name right!

The second Sue is an innovative, professional florist with lots of experience and ideas to fulfil all your floral needs. Weddings are Sue’s speciality and she can advise and help all your ideas, whatever style – traditional, modern, contemporary or quirky and work to a budget that suits your needs. To arrange a wedding consultation please ring 07939800445 anytime.
