A delightful fairy sitting on one of our fancy blown glass bowls, we added water and floated glass “bubbles” for a magical table setting, perfect for a party, holiday, or Tea Party celebration, even a fairy tale wedding!

Tropical Wedding Shower

August 23, 2008

The second arrangement

Tropical Centerpiece

For this series of arrangements, a particularly artistic client wanted colourful and summery (but not too crazy) table arrangements. We opted to go with oranges and purples to give the shower a tropical and exotic feeling.  There were going to be eight tables at the shower and we needed to keep the arrangements short enough so that guests could see each other over them.  We used roses, tritoma, pin cushion, protea, birds of paradise, orchids, assorted eucalyptus, and other tropical plants such that each arrangement looked different.  For the pictures below I picked out two of my favorite arrangements out of the eight.

As you can see, we used a 5x5x5 clear glass cube vase

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.

Gerbera Baby

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.
