Winter funeral flowers

December 22, 2008

Here is a soft selection, for the passing of an elegant lady.  The soft pearl and shell tones of the spray roses,  hybrid roses, and peonies along with the cascading cedar greenery, and soft tone of the seeded eucci.

The elegant comination is perfect for any time of the year, and for a peaceful elegant and comforting look.  The looks very handsome on a rich tone casket, a wood tone or even a brushed nickle.

Heres a centerpiece done for a wedding table… one down fifteen more to go.   We used various colored hydrangeas and roses, sticking to pink and white pastels in a crystal vase.  This definitely fits the bill for a classic style wedding.

The overall height of the centerpiece is approximatley 2 feet

Summer Arrangement

July 23, 2008

Heres a $65 arrangement that was just done today that called for sunflowers, yellow spray roses, alstro, yarrow and lillys.  After much debate, we decided to put it in a clear cylindrical vase with rocks and (fake) lemon slices as accents.

a little lemon helps accent the glass vase... its a good thing

The yellows in the spray roses was especially good this week

Little Red Bouquet

July 21, 2008

Creating so many arrangements inevitably creates “scraps.”  And by scraps I mean those “oops” moments where we cut the flower too short, break one of the buds off, or just arent satisfied with the color or appearance of the flower.  We don’t just throw these away however, we take them home for ourselves.  I give you the example of this little red bouquet my grandmother made the other day using nothing but scraps (which serves as testiment to her talents as a florist I might add)
