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.
Pictured is a wrist corsage and matching buttonhole (boutonniere) for the recent Kolbe Catholic College school ball.
This is the basic wrist corsage – we can add extra sparkle with keepsake wristbands and diamantes.
Here is a brides trailing style bouquet (also called a cascade or tear-drop bouquet) and a bridesmaids posy from a recent Spring wedding in Rockingham. The bouquets feature Tulips, Oriental Lilliums, Orchids and Tropical Foliage.
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!
Here is the brides bouquet from last weekends wedding in Rockingham – a beautiful posy of Purple Tulips, Mokara Orchids and Roses.
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.
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!
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.
This bride chose white Oriental Lilliums with Mokara Orchids on decorative wire extending from her bouquet. Despite Autumn being rather wet and cold in Rockingham so far it actually turned out to be a beautiful weekend. See more wedding flowers from Hanging Basket Florist here.
