Harvest Wedding

October 25, 2008

Just recently we completed a wedding for a woman in Warwick.  She wanted to do a fall themed wedding, with a very light and airy feeling.  We used a multitude of nuts and fruit, combined with ribbon, autumn leaves, orchids, pumpkins and gerbera daisies.

The nuts and fruit have been touched with some gold paint and glitter

Here we have another arrangement recieved through FTD.  At our online store (www.fernsandflowers.com) customers can order pre-designed arrangements and we replicate and improve upon them.  Of course, sometimes these orders can be tough (Its impossible to have every single flower than can appear in the FTD networks arrangements on hand all the time), but we never cease to try to please.

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

See you on Route 66

July 25, 2008

Here we have a funeral arrangement for a car enthusiast.  After the phone call about the deceased loving cars we had a dilemma…  what kind of car enthusiast?  I mean, we have NASCAR, Classic Cars, Rally, ect.   So my father being the bright man he is used put a Route 66 sign on the arrangement.  That way we can’t go wrong.
