Summer Wedding

Here we have the flowers for the bridal table table and one of the guest table arrangements for a wedding at Munja Gardens in Baldivis on 18th December.

The arrangements feature Oriental Lilliums which are great wedding flowers – the large blooms are very showy and the sweet fragrance will remind the bride of her special day every time she comes across them.

Christmas Gift Ideas

Hanging Basket Florist have many great ideas for Christmas this year. Flowers and Gift Baskets make perfect presents for those that have everything. We can create a beautiful arrangement or bouquet of flowers (like the one pictured) and deliver it anywhere in the Rockingham area during Christmas week, right up to Christmas Eve. Even if you need a present for someone who doesn’t particularly like flowers we can send a gift basket like the one shown above, a basket of plants, or a chocolate arrangement.

Rockingham Wedding Flowers 4 December 2010

When the bride first asked about using these two different shades of pink, I wasn’t sure they would work, but in the end I was very pleased with the result. The cerise gerberas go very well with the two-tone pink gerberas and make a very pretty bouquet.

The posy above is the brides bouquet, the one to the right was used as the throw-away (or toss) bouquet, but this style would suit as a bouquet for a  little flower girl.

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!
