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.

Rich Fall Flowers

Fall centerpiece

Rich colors of the season, remind us of Tuscany.  This table is for a fall wedding celebration, but the combination is perfect for any family gathering.  Cabbages, sunflowers, roses, red rover mums, and Gerber add the rich textures to this design.

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.

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)

Hydrangeas and roses are the fasion for this summers wedding scene, and we are only too happy to oblige.

Way back in July we did a fairytale wedding at Astors in Newport.  We made about fifteen of these table centerpieces and “altar” pieces using roses, hydrangeas, lillies, orchids, stock, pink larkspur, and various greens.

As you can see, this arrangement has Roses, Daisies, Snapdragons, Babies Breath, Alstro, and Pink Tissue Status, a stuffed animal, and a pink feather boa.  A great way to make your little girl really believe that she’s the boss.

Summer Sunsets

Summer sunset

Summer sunset

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.
