Fabulous flowers

Some of the fabulous flowers available this week.
The gorgeous red passion rose, a favourite red rose for bouquets. Cymbidium mini orchids at their best, a lovely shade of green with a burgundy coloured lip.
Another green flower, a button chrysant.

English bloom chrysants, again gorgeous at this time of year.

Cerise pink spray roses full of blooms.

Burgundy red anthurriums.

30cm Glass vase

30cm tall glass cylinder vase ideal for table centres. Low enough for a minimal arrangement (as photo) not to obscure the view for people sat opposite. Tall and wide enough to take a full arrangement should you prefer.
Please get in touch if you would like a quote.

Epic Centre

A big 'thank you' to Bernadette at Lincolnshire Lanterns for asking me to provide a table display for a photo shoot at the Epic Centre.
I created a long and low arrangement with white oriental lilies and eustoma on a bed of mixed foliage.

These photos were provided by Bernadette and hopefully she will be sending some of the official photos when ready.

Buttonholes and corsages

The buttonholes and corsages from Sue and Darens wedding. The ladies wore a single white rose buttonhole with white spray rose buds and gold hypericum.

The mums wore a cymbidium orchid corsage, white spray roses with various foliage.

The men wore white rose buttonholes with skimmia and hypericum and foliage.
All buttonholes were individually labelled with the recipients name and relation to the bride or groom. It was my job to pin on each of them as the guests arrived.

Reception Flowers

Sue and Daren's wedding reception was at a Haven holiday park in Perranporth. This was chosen for many reasons but mainly so family and friends travelling down could stay on the park and all be together for the celebrations. The reception was held in the Surf Rider club.
The large top table design was a traditional long and low in reds, golds, whites and greens. Flowers included germini, lilies, cymbidium orchids, roses, hydangea, hypericum, amaranthus and various ferns and foliage.
The reception in full flow.

The finished set up. It was decided to place all the high conical vases on the back tables and bowls on the front.
The chair covers were provided by a local company and finished with bows by the bride and friends.
The pew ends from church were utilised on the rail around the bar area.

The 3 pedestals from church were brought to the reception and 2 placed either side of the top table and one near the entrance to the club.

One of the conical vases. These had lilies, roses, gerberas, amaranthus, hypericum and various foliages and palms.

The table set up again created by the bride and friends.

Another conial vase.

View of the tables from the bar area.

The top table design. Unfortunately when setting up minimal light was on. Hopefully when I receive some of the photos from the professional photographer they will be better lit.

The bowl arrangements.

The bowl arrangements had roses, hydrangeas, cymbidium orchids, hypericum, skimmia and various foliage including fountain grass and green trachelium.

Conical vases.
