Shabby chic wedding

A very pretty wedding in pinks and creams, shabby chic loveliness....

For the venue, the bride provided lots of lovely containers, which we then decorated with pretty flowers....

Dare to be different

Its always nice when Im asked to coordinate flowers with a more unusual dress or theme, and this was certainly one cool bride. Opting away from the norm, Jacqueline wore a 50's purple prom style wedding dress , which for me meant a nice full handtied bouquet to coordinate. We kept the bouquet nice and natural of course, but adding in abit of soft colour to highlight, and i think these great images show it worked perfectly!.
Thanks Jaqueline for the great pics ! x

Rustic Weddings

I thought i would show these images of a recent wedding that we did. More and more couples are looking for a rustic, infomal feel to their wedding flowers which we personally love.

Trailing bouquets dont have to be fixed, rigid, and dated - they can be flowing, handpicked, and also handtied like the one above, and who wants a wired traditional buttonhole anymore? Not us! we love these little tied clusters

Thanks to our lovely clients Gemma and Andy for the images & congratulations xx

Carnival Window

This saturday 9th July is Melbourne Carnival . i love carnival day, it feels quintessentially english and creates a real buzz in the village. It's quite exciting seeing all of the floats and band march through melbourne, and feels very nostalgic! ( Im secretly jealous as i always wanted to be on a float when i was 'ickle)
This years Carnival theme is 'As Seen on Screen', where as shop owners we have the opportunity to enter our window in the window dressing competition. As this is our first carnival in our lovely new shop we decided to involve the local infant school to help us decide what 'screen' inspiration our window should be. Over 60 children, aged 6 and 7 designed a window for us, and we picked 'Olivias' - The Secret Garden as the winner of our window.
We have displayed her original design in our window, along with our interpretation of it.
Fingers crossed we win the competition !, and thankyou to all of the little ones who helped us with their drawings x

Claim to fame for olivia - her name on our window !...
