Hotel Radisson Centerpieces

September 12, 2008

Every week we deliver fresh flower arrangements to the Radisson hotel on Post rd. in Warwick.  This weeks were especially interesting, utilizing one-off hand blown glass vases, bamboo, and tropical plants.

We retrieved these unique vases from the hotel if you would like them in one with an arrangement

Vibrant Funeral

August 23, 2008

Just a few days ago we had a client who wanted flowers for a funeral.  They wanted the arrangements to be very vibrant and colourful, using oranges and reds. (We really do appreciate it when clients come in with an idea of what they want… you have no idea how hard it is to make an arrangement when a client says “oh, I don’t know what I want, whatever you decide”)

We used lilies, roses, tritoma, cherry brandy roses, red sunflowers, and leather leaf to create these arrangements.  (I appologise for the poor picture quality, the camera has been on the fritz)

Summer Sunsets

This arrangement is being given to one of our clients patients as a recovery gift.  We used orchids, pin-cusion protea, cherry brandy roses, kangaroo paw, and various grasses.  A butterfly was thrown in for good measure.  The oranges, yellows and browns really remind viewers of a late summer sunset at the beach… its a good thing.

A unique combination of flowers

Tropical Centerpiece

August 4, 2008

here we have three centerpieces meant for a wedding rehearsal dinner.  We used a multitude of exotic flowers such as birds of paradise, gerbera, ginger, lilies, cocks comb, various tropical foliage, and anthurium in a clear glass container to create a very unique set of centerpieces.

All three centerpieces

Glass cube vases were also used

Gerbera Baby

July 25, 2008

A client wanted an arrangement of all gerberas so we were happy to oblige.  We added a “South of the Border” flair using very warm and vibrant colors accented with whisps of grass.

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)
