Sweet November

November in Melbourne is the official start of the (all too short)  peony season and so it was only fitting that 1st of November Bride Audrey, should carry glorious white peonies in her bouquet. With white sweet peas, Queen Anne’s lace, nigela and  the first of the season’s David Austin roses it was a soft, sweet smelling delight.

This is the reason that so many brides plan their weddings for this time of the year.


Variations on a Theme

spring full bouquetNovember Bride Julie didn’t want herself and her bridesmaids to look like cookie cutter versions of each other and so each bouquet was made with its own unique colour theme…….Sacha created an abundant bouquet of white and pink David Austin roses and peonies with green hydrangea , freesias and white sweet peas for Julie…..

When you add in the spectacular weather on the day it seems like the best of Spring in one joyous event.


Peonies in the Nick of Time!

Bride to be Phoebe loves spring flowers but all of the images she showed us were of peonies so it was quite vexing that the peony season was so late in starting this year…….

Wrist corsages have regained such popularity in the last decade that it is simply de rigueur to sport one at one’s school formal events.

Floral Emergency!

We received a frantic call at 3pm from a desperate client who had forgotten to order 10 table settings for 6pm…..Not sure how that slipped her mind, but pas de problème, our talented team swung into action.

November Wedding Bouquet

 

If you were getting married in November of course you would choose peonies, hydrangeas and David Austin roses……….

 

Some brides plan to have their wedding in November for the peonies alone!

 

How could you resist that pure white with the faintest raspberry blush……..I can’t. And the fragrance of the white David Austin rose is surely one of  life’s great pleasures. Everyone who walked into the shop in Fitzroy  today commented on the incredible sweet aroma.
