Rockingham Wedding Flowers

From last weekends wedding here is a trailing style bouquet (picture on the left – also known as a ‘teardrop’ or ‘cascade’) featuring White Oriental Lilliums and Red Roses with White Dendrobium Orchids. The bridesmaids posy (right) has White Oriental Lilliums and White Roses.

Sorry – not the best photo’s I’ve taken – but we were flat out busy!

Florist 911

Last Saturday was a very busy day for us with three weddings for that day. To add to the chaos only one of the weddings had been booked in advance!

I received a call early Saturday morning saying that the brides bouquet from another florist was the wrong colour – “The bride is crying – how quickly can you do a bouquet of 50 Red Roses?”  Usually this is an hour or two’s work – but this day I got it done in 45 mins. Usually every single Rose would be wired but on this occasion there just wasn’t enough time so some of  the flowers in the centre of the bouquet had to go without.

After the emergency was over, and we made a quick hand-tied bouquet for a casual wedding, we could get back to the beautiful Calla Lily (Zantedeschia) Trailing Style Bouquet (pictured) for that afternoon. This is a fully wired bouquet – due to the thickness of the Calla’s stems it was not practical to use a bridie holder. However, the Calla’s hold a lot of water in their stems so it is not necessary to have a water source – the flowers will look beautiful and fresh all day.

10/10/10 Wedding in Rockingham

For our 10/10/10 wedding we created a beautiful and elegant Trailing Style Bouquet of Phalaenopsis Orchids (Moth Orchids) and Dendrobium Orchids.

Needless to say the bride loved her flowers!

What is the best value flower gift?

There are many factors that can contribute to the perceived value of a flower arrangement or bouquet. While most of our customers prefer the bigger and more showy box arrangements, more and more people are starting to appreciate the elegant style of more compact designs like the one shown above in a quality vase that the recipient gets to keep.

This is a lovely, elegant flower arrangement I whipped up at about a quarter-to-closing last night for a young guy to give his girlfriend. It has beautiful cream Roses and orange Asiatic Lilliums in a square glass vase.

While  long stemmed roses make a big, impressive bouquet, the flowers shown above with the shorter stems will actually last longer, so for many this design is a better value gift.  When sending  flowers  to someone at work who will have to keep them on a small desk it would be more suitable to have delivered a more compact floral design like the one above.

It all comes down to what an individual sees as better value – be it size, style or vase life and at the same time making sure that the arrangement is appropriate for the occasion and situation. The important part is to let your florist know what aspect of a flower arrangement has the most value for you. We all have our own preferences, but we want to provide you with the gift that you find attractive and see good value in.
