Ivory and Royal Blue Wedding

The wedding bouquets from Roxanne's wedding on 19th June.
Roxanne's colour scheme was royal blue and ivory with added sparkle for her bouquet.
A hand tie posy of gorgeous Maroussia roses with royal blue feathers and variegated dracaena leaves. Ivory satin ribbon was bound around the stems and pinned with diamante pins. These were also in a majority of roses and some between the flowers for that all important sparkle.
The bridesmaids (3) all carried 3 Maroussia roses with a few royal blue feathers and curled variegated dracaena.
All the men in the bridal party had a maroussia rose buttonhole with matching foliage.
One of the mums had an aqua rose buttonhole.

All the buttonholes had a royal blue crystal pin apart from the pink which had a matching pink crystal pin.

Andrew J Musson Tailor

We were asked to design a low table arrangement for in the marquee at the Lincolnshire Show for Andrew J Musson Tailors.
Red gerberas and roses surrounded by a cloud of gyp with curled aspidistra leaves displayed in a glass cube.
For the shop display we thought we would try something different. A martini vase with anthuriums in pink, white and green, aspidistra leaves and lime green midelino sticks.

The wedding flowers for Kimberley from 11 June.
A fantastically scented bouquet of oriental lilies and ivory roses with bear grass. Designed in the modern hand-tied style.
There was two bridesmaids who carried a single stem of oriental lily with bear grass trails.
The flower girl carried a silver heart shaped wand with a single white carnation, foliage and white ribbon trails and bow.
Buttonholes were also provided for the wedding party of white carnations and Mother of the bride had a pink eustoma corsage.
Thank you bouquets were also provided for the reception at the local pub.

On the Saturday morning it was lovely to see the bride and groom who were just leaving for their honeymoon and just popped in to thank us for the wonderful flowers.


These are the last three arrangements we have displayed in Argos.
This one was sent on Friday. A design to show our support for the England team, probably less said about that the better.
Red carnations with white double chrysants and red midelino sticks in a glass cylinder with red sisal.A simple modern design of 4 green anthuriums in a red gel solution.
A bright summery design of sweet williams with fashionable turquoise feathers.

Lincoln Security

This weeks arrangement for Lincoln Security I chose a glass cylinder filled with gorgeous pink flowers. Heaven roses, cerise pink gerberas and various pink sweet williams are nestled amongst pink cordyline leaves. The cylinder is filled with black sisal to hide the 'oasis'.
A modern alternative to the traditional posy table centre.

Washingborough Hall

The civil service flowers from Morog's wedding on Saturday.
The registrars table display was a mix of red and white/ivory flowers. Gerberas, carnations, eustoma, alstroemeria, and delianne were included with a mixture of foliage.
On the registrars table. It would also be transferred to the top table for the reception.
In either corner in the ceremony room there is a stone pedestal ideal for having a large arrangement displayed. Again these are a combination of reds/whites and creams. Gerberas, carnations, anastasia, eustoma, and delianne with foliage.

A slightly dark photo but it is difficult with the light coming in from the huge window.
The baytrees with ivory roses and red ribbon and red and white bases.
The guest tables were of large martini vases which we hired, filled with florist gel and made to look like giant glasses of martini. We wanted a quick photo but a member of the bridal party was in charge of filling them and they wasn't ready when we left.

Red and ivory rose wedding

This is the wedding of the lovely Morog who contacted us via the Internet from Guernsey to ask if it was possible to arrange flowers for her wedding at Washingborough Hall Hotel.
She wanted simple but stunning flowers based around red roses.
For the brides bouquet the gorgeous Colombian Freedom red roses matched the colour scheme perfectly. All we were asked to add was diamante pins to the centre of most of the flowers and to bind the stems with ivory satin ribbon and pin with matching red pins.
Her daughter, the bridesmaid, carried a similar style with red, freedom, and ivory, akito, roses. Again with diamante pins and satin ribbon around the stems.
The flower girl carried a silver star wand with a red, freedom, rose with ivory satin bow and trails. The wand handle was also bound in ivory satin ribbon.
The brides mum wore a corsage of a red, freedom, rose and white eustoma with variegated ivy leaves.
All the groomsmen wore a matching freedom rose buttonhole with a single variegated ivy leaf.

The weekends arrangement for Argos.

As we are told that gypsophila is back on trend I decided to use it on mass.
A silver zinc bucket with lots of gyp forms the base for a swirl of silver aluminium wire. Through this a single white anastasia chrysant with a few strands of curved beargrass pinned to the centre of the flower.
