Groom Style #2

It’s easy to think that weddings are all about the bride, but the groom needs to step it up as well.

Buttonhole flowers should reflect the style of the person as well as the theme of the wedding, from the classically simple single rose, to a garden flower story, to playfully fun gyp clusters there are endless combinations to suit every kind of groom.

Beach Wedding Bouquet

When bride to be Jade came into the shop on Thursday she was all aflutter because a last minute let down had left her with no bouquet for her beach wedding on Saturday.

Fortunately our Fitzroy shop was full of gorgeous blooms and Sacha was able to help her choose from a a stash of seasonal whites.

The result was simple and stunning, finished with a binding of jute twine.





A Birthday Shindig at the Robert Burns Hotel in Fitzroy calls for a Spanish/Scottish theme.



Fern fronds and the thistle-like blooms of strawberry flower together with gloriosa, orchids and celosia are fashioned into these little flamenco dancer posies.



Mid March Wedding Bouquet

New Zealand Style

Danielle wanted a New Zealand inspired table centre for the dinner party she was to host for her Kiwi husband.

She cleverly brought in a traditional Maori kete or bag made from woven flax to use as a vessel.






Ferns and flax, monsteria and magnolia, blue sea holly, green hydrangea, swan plant and coconut fibre were arranged within.






Purple Bouquet #2

The bride wore white……..and carried purple…..Intense purple!

Deepest purple hydrangea, lisianthus and electric blue butterfly delphinium made this bouquet a show stopper.

The combination was toned down with white hydrangea and clethra for the brides maids.


A Celebration of Colour and Texture

The arrangements for this engagement celebration had to be bright and colourful……..

Celosia, cow udders, sunflowers, gloriosa and calla lilies provided not only a cornucopia  of colour but a riot of form and texture.
