Flower Handbag

Spring basket of flowers

Another Valentines design.

Valentines table arrangement

This is a table arrangement I did for the Valentines meal I had with my husband. I have used a black glass square vase, red medalino sticks, red spray roses and carnations with dark green foliage. To add a bit of texture I wired some black feathers and dotted them throughout the design. I also had some large heart shape diamante buttons that I added for a bit of bling!

These were the arrangements I did to go on 2x pedestals and a windowsill for Graham's funeral :(

Double ended coffin spray

My friend Emily very sadly lost her big brother Graham and I was honored to be asked to do the flowers for his funeral. They asked for all white flowers including Roses and Lilies. I also used snap dragons, lisianthus, aspidistra leaves, leather leaf and ivy to create this coffin spray.

Grave tribute

I was asked by a lady at my husbands work to create an arrangement for a grave using the Man United football club colours- red and white. I have used red pleated ribbon to edge a posy pad and then based it with white spray chrysanths. Then I did a cluster on the top using hot blood red roses, red spray carnations, soft ruscus and some small white spray chrysanths dotted throughout. I finished it off with a red and white organza ribbon at the front.
