Fresh and Artificial Flowers Together in Harmony

A birthday bouquet with a difference. I used a selection of Anthirium, Astilbe, English Larkspur, Vuvuzela Roses, Eucalyptus, Chrysanthemums and Pistacia Leaves in fresh flowers and foliage but added a collar around the bottom of this arrangement with cream artificial Peonies.

This enabled me to decorate the top of the box with flowers rather than packing it with lots of cellophane. It not only looks pretty but the customer gets to keep flowers….forever.

I tied a little tag around one of the artificial flowers saying ‘keep me’ just to remind the customer to keep hold of these flowers and use them elsewhere. A fabric heart pick was also added for that extra little touch too.

I seem to get a lot of requests for the more natural bouquet and people seem to favouring these free meadowy looking flowers which I think works…..after all the customer is always right. I love this type of bouquet as you can literally go a bit wild with it, it doesn’t have to have a uniform shape, nice floaty flowing lines…..oh I’m in floral design heaven. More requests for these please!!

It is a bit frowned upon to even think of putting artificial flowers with fresh ones but I’m breaking the rules and when all the fresh ones die off there will still be a token of this bouquet behind as a reminder and I like that.

We are here for any arrangement in any way you would like it……August sees Gladioulus and the Poppy as birth flowers so why not try a birthday bouquet including any of these blooms….for now though….
