This year Mother’s Day is on Sunday the 13th May.

We already know that gerberas will be scarce – they always are around mother’s day as the weather is getting cooler and as there’s such a high demand. But there are plenty of other flowers that are really lovely!

We have some new plants in store too, cute succulents and interesting indoor plants. We’ll try to get some photos to post for you.

We had a wonderful customer come in a few weeks ago, saying they had a tricky job for us. We love a challenge, and it was our privilege to be able to do this.

The request was to make a traditional Croatian shield/crest as a floral wreath for a service. Including a ribbon inscribed with ‘Rest in Peace’ but in the Croatian words, ‘Počivao u miru BoΕΎjem‘.

We used large and small carnations as the main flower, also some chrysanthemum as necessary to fill the spaces. The green foliage around the edge is mostly gardenia.

We hope you enjoy this one… it was a wedding using all different shades of red roses.

Red, red & red roses and glossy black berries as well as celosia to break up the texture
A buttonhole/boutonniere simply with a rose and black berries. This time we used a black dart to hold the stem, it acts almost like a little water vial for the rose.

We have been doing up some artificial cymbidium orchids in concrete/stone look pots, here’s a preview:

Happy April everybody!
