A Crowning Glory

Melbourne Cup week is always a busy time at Tribal Rose and we are asked to make a variety of  fresh flower hair pieces, but  each year there is always a standout…. And this is it.

Helena was asked to make a  beautiful, chunky circlet of spring flowers for a lovely young lady to wear at Stakes Day.

Combining luscious pink roses with campanula, delphinium, freesia and scented  geranium, she created a crown fit for the May Queen.

ET Viola!  Beautifully modelled by our newest T rose recruit Sacha.

Sweet Avalanche

Susan, our shop mannequin has really embraced the spirit of Oaks Day with a new lady-like head of pink flowers.

Pink roses are the order of the day and ‘Sweet Avalanche’ is the perfect powder puff pink variety.

The Melbourne Cup

Yellow roses are the traditional flower for the Melbourne Cup.
This beautiful large bloomed variety is ‘Golden Delicious’ and is displayed en masse at Crown Towers foyer.

Giddy Up!

Victoria Derby Day marks the beginning of Melbourne Cup Week and the flower of the day is a blue cornflower.

The carnival is celebrated at one of our city’s most glamorous hotels with a different floral installation for each of the race meetings.

Blue cornflower, butterfly delphinium and sky blue twisted willow are featured along with a beautiful handmade rocking horse. So giddy on up to the lobby at Crown Towers!
