I love pastel colours in bridal bouquets, elegant and subtle. I made this bouquet for my best friend, I love using ivy to frame and also bring through the bouquet. 

In the next few weeks I really want to experiment with flowers, try new designs and see what I can achieve with my favourite flowers.... (which, on the downside are always the most expensive ones!).  So, watch this space!

ode to the hydrangea

   I want to give a little respect to the humble hydrangea... these under-stated flowers are truly beautiful creations, they add the wow-factor to a bridal bouquet and look magnificent grouped together in big tin buckets. Even one by itself in a vintage tea-pot transforms a room.

The beginning...

I'm new to this blogging jazz, so not really sure how to go about it...

I am a florist/children's worker. My reason for keeping a blog is so that I can record all of my spurts of creative projects and ideas, so that they are all in one place. 

My dream is to one day have my own florist/gift shop.... this blog will (hopefully) inspire me to do something about it!

I'll leave you with one picture of a bridal bouquet I made for my lovely friend's wedding in the summer... She wanted buttons incorporated, it was very fun to make!

Bye for now! xxx
