This weeks arrangement on Argos jewelery counter.
An 8" clear bowl with clear glass stones in the base. A pretty handtie posy of white Alstroemeria and wax flower with a collar of fatsia leaves. The wax flower has a pretty, light scent that will be noticed but not overpowering. Ideal for a table centre.

Three red anthuriums with a red carnation surrounded by black sisal all in a collar of fatsia leaves. The arrangement is displayed in a lilac ceramic pot.
Simple yet eye catching suitable for a buffet table or bar area.
Here is the brides teardrop bouquet. Red passion roses with white freesia and soft ruscus for foliage. This is a very popular design being fairly compact but traditional in shape. The flower combination also works extremely well with the freesias being scented and many Mother of the Brides having had them when they walked down the aisle.

We received an e-mail from a lady in Vancouver a few days ago requesting an arrangement for a family members birthday who is local to us. This is what we sent out.
It is in a cream zinc bowl and it has anthuriums, gerberas, shamrock chrysants, freesia, roses, eustoma, lily, palm leaves and baby blue eucalyptus.
Once delivered we sent a photo and e-mail to our customer confirming delivery to show what we sent. We received this reply:
Thank you so much for the follow up and the photo. The arrangement looks beautiful!
I'm sure it made her day extra special!!
(Payment was made via a phone call)
The recipient loves orchids and so a green one was selected along with prado carnations, shamrock chrysants, kermit chrysants, sweet william green trick and various foliage. Green midelino sticks and pins were also added.
A lovely customer of ours requested an arrangement for a friends Diamond wedding. We went through what we could send and it was decided something a little modern would be nice. As colours for diamond are not as fixed as for some anniversaries we chose white and lime green. Included are roses, shamrock chrysants, gerbera, prado carnations, gyp and button chrysants. All arranged in one of the glass cubes that we are finding are very popular.
After delivery we were told the recipient loved it.

They consisted mainly of pink gerberas, with pink broom, carnations and misumata branches.
The brides bouquet, top photo, was a hand-tie posy of pink gerberas with a collar of aspidistra leaves. On these we attached some gold butterflies, another theme of the wedding. Bear grass trails added interest and length to the design and it was finished off with pink satin ribbon.
The Maid of honor carried an overarm bouquet of pink gerberas, bottom photo, backed with an aspidistra leaf. Butterflies were added to the flowers and satin ribbon was pinned to the stems to make the handle.
3 adult bridesmaids carried smaller versions of this, 3rd photo.

A single stem of cymbidium orchid with fatsia leaves hiding the mechanics arranged in an ivory zinc bowl. Turquoise midelino sticks add interest to the base and overall height.
The last two arrangements for Andrew J Musson Tailors.
The top one is simply 3 Anthuriums with a large palm leaf. A small amount of red sisal holds the stems in place.
The bottom one is 3 stems of Longi lily with a stem of white september and two fatsia leaves to balance out the overall shape.
The theme was ivory and turquoise and as this is difficult to match with flowers, feathers were used.
The brides bouquet was a hand-tie posy of fresh ivory germini and roses with turquoise feathers through the flowers to tone in with the bridesmaids dresses.
The bridesmaids had artificial gerbera hand-tie posies with turquoise feathers forming a collar of colour. There was 2 adult bridesmaids, who had larger bouquets, and 4 smaller bridesmaids.
The male buttonholes were a single rose with feathers as backing and the ladies had a rose and freesia corsage again with added feathers.
