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.

Garden in a Peapod

September 6, 2008

Hello folks, sorry for the lack of updates… school is starting up again and professors usually frown upon my furiously typing in class…

Anyways, this arrangement is for a real gardener and plant lover.  We used a ceramic pea pod container and filled it with a large variety of plants, such as Stars of Bethlehem, Tritoma, Lavender Roses, Tuber Roses, Cabbage, Gerbera, Adriatic Lilies, Rose Hips, Pink Spray Roses, and Rosemary.

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

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.
