Flowers as Christmas Decorations

Why not use artificial flowers as decorations on your tree this Christmas? This is a trend that is becoming more and more popular every year now. I’ve used some pink flowers here on a white tree but there are so many colour combinations to use and blend with your own tree. You can go as bold and bright as you like or just keep them subtle.

I think they make a bit of a change from the usual decorations and compliment any tree of any colour, artificial or natural. If you have an artificial tree that has been used a lot over the years and tends to look a bit sparse on the branches well the flowers can be used to pack it out and make it look full again.

We can all look a bit tired and our branches start to thin out, I’m thinking how much I can sympathise with these Christmas trees now….but I know that a few flowers will always cheer me up and bring me back to life. So what’s good for the trees is good for us too!!

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….

Happy Birthday Bouquet

I provided this bouquet for a special lady’s 60th Birthday and decided to decorate the box to that theme. I think it makes the box a little more exciting and personalises it to the individual.

These boxes are great as the bouquet can sit in it’s bag of water and the flowers are not overcome by a lot of cellophane and tissue paper, so much better for the environment. Get me trying to save the planet, well it makes sense.

I filled the box with Pink Roses, Pink Wax Flower, White Lisianthus, and some nice Green Ruscus and I finished off with a hessian bow. The golden glittery number 60 was added complete with a couple of champagne glasses, a happy birthday tag on the front and a celebrate tag on the bag……well it is worth celebrating! Any excuse for me.

If you have a celebration coming up or you would like a themed bouquet for someone special please get in touch. You may have someone who loves cupcakes or tea, maybe they are a cat lover or dog lover – I can design a bouquet for every interest. Different eh?

I will include more as I go on so watch this space.
