White Christmas Wedding

It was the Friday before Christmas and the brief was to transform a 9 metre bar into an altar for an evening wedding ceremony.

And so  with repeated puff balls of gypsophila and luscious white hydrangea in gleaming glass cylinders of different sizes……….

We created a magical tableau  in which the ceremony could take place.

It has been a busy year at Tribal Rose and we will be taking a couple of weeks R and R to recharge our batteries for the New Year. Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all our fabulous customers. We’ll see you in Smith St in 2013.

This week has been very busy with Christmas orders here in Smith St, but there  was still time  to do a small wedding that is being held in the country  tomorrow.

Summer Colour

After all the pretty pastels of spring it was a nice change to use bright summer flowers for this wedding on Saturday.

A Gentlemen’s Christmas

Our client provided this beautiful antique silverware  and a brief  to create a classic yuletide look for his christmas bash on the weekend. Avec plaisir!

We went for a bit of a Ralph Lauren Home look , traditional Christmas foliage such as spruce and holly, with an Australian touch of red kangaroo paw and NSW christmas bush.


Hydrangeas, peonies and christmas lilies added a punch of white creating a cosy Gentlemen’s club feel.

Circlet Florale



Inspired by the bride’s floral crown – A Crowning Glory, November 10th’s post – Lucy ordered a simpler style in heirloom colours for a rural wedding she was to attend.

Grandiflora’s antique and honeymoon rose varieties, together with a touch of kalmia and a sprig of copper beech give this floral crown a lovely old fashioned look.
