Cymbidium Orchids

One of Springs most loved flowers is the Cymbidium Orchid. With large, beautiful, long-lasting blooms these local favourites always impress.

A stem or two in a vase can really add a touch of elegance to your home. Cymbidium Orchids are also one of the longest lasting cut flowers available. While their price may seem extravagant – around $30 for one stem! – they can last up to three weeks, sometimes even longer.

We do however have some inexpensive options – we can create a pretty box arrangement with the Cymbidium Orchids which start from $29.50

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!

More Submerged Orchids

Each week we do two large vase arrangements of Oriental Lilliums and tropical foliage for Pandora jewellers here in Rockingham, however this week they are having a special promotion and wanted to add a little puple to their usual Pandora look. I created the above Orchid Vases for them – Purple Dendrobium Orchids and Bamboo, semi-submerged in a glass vase with glass marbles.  I love the look so much I am adding the design to our website, I think it would make a great little gift to sit on someones office desk.

We also did individual wired Orchid blooms to match, which the girls wore in their hair. I would love to see ladies wearing flowers in their hair more often, I think it would look great on the girls going to their school ball with flowers in their hair to match their wrist sprays and corsages.

Submerged Flowers

Here is a photo of a lovely, simple flower arrangement we sent out for a sympathy gift to the Rockingham suburb of Port Kennedy last week. It’s a Cymbidium Orchid submerged in water in a glass vase with glass marbles and Tortured Willow. Although submerged flowers are typically seen at wedding receptions and other events, I think it makes a perfect gift – someone could keep this arrangement on their work desk or coffee table for at least 10 days (for the best effect the water should be changed every few days).

If you look closely you can see where the willow has actually sprouted a green leaf – keep it in water long enough and it will also grow roots. A good gardener (with a little effort) could actually get their own willow tree from this arrangement!

17th July Wedding

We  have been very busy here at Hanging Basket Florist Rockingham as I have had some time off due to the birth of my baby girl at St John of God Hospital in Murdoch, so I am a bit late in posting this photo of a beautiful wedding bouquet we did on 17th July for a Rockingham wedding. The ivy gives the bouquet a nice flowing look. The bride was, of course, very happy with the flowers.
