Sometimes we get interesting requests – this time we were asked to do an apple bouquet! How awesome! Here are some pictures:

We were very excited to see the new Gold Coast University Hospital have it’s community open day last weekend. We could see many people walking past to attend, and heard lots of positive comments about the exceptional new facilities.

We’ve been thinking about how we can offer a good range of floral arrangements and other fun things that will be appropriate for taking to the hospital, or for delivery, when the hospital opens later this month.

If you have any ideas for what works well, do let us know!

A Gold Coast garden wedding with a reception on the lawn, and some very pretty bouquets! These gorgeous enormous bouquets include masses of white and cream lisianthus, kale (ornamental cabbage) and stock.

I was wondering how to make the wrapping extra-special on this box of chocolates that was going out, when I found some spare short roses and tada! I’m sure this would work at home with some flowers from the garden too, or even with some twigs or leaves…





We love the opportunity to do interesting things, like this long and low corporate reception display for an event at Broadbeach, on the Gold Coast .

This arrangement includes purple vanda orchids, lotus pods, white anthuriums, white hypericum berries, purple stock, tetragona nuts, & tropical leaves.

Another delivery going out to someone special on the beautiful Gold Coast. We hope they like it!

large tiered arrangement with roses

Arrangement includes wattle, orange, pink and green roses, green erica, burgundy snap-dragons and if you look closely there are magnolia branches in the high parts, with buds.

When there’s some short stems left on the bench at the end of the day, what do you do? Play, of course, while tidying up and putting on a record of Mr BublΓ©.

This tiny creation is one such play:

spray rose miniature arrangement in a jug

Standing no more than 10cm tall, this little jug arrangement features effervescent yellow spray roses, purple delphinium buds, wattle and thryptomene sprigs and off-cuts of spinning gum.

We’ve been working really hard and now our online shop is finally here! Check it out!

Of course if you like to pop in or phone, we still love to talk to you, but if you can’t make it in the online shop hopefully makes it more convenient for you.

We will be adding more items to the shop as we go, and also tweaking it so it’s even better.

We wish dahlias had a longer season! They are so lovely.

Another beautiful Gold Coast wedding. Bold and vibrant.

This is the bride’s bouquet. We used David Austin roses, grandiflora roses, spray roses, 2 shades of sim carnations, and lisianthus. Trimmed with white satin.

We love this – a flower ball for the flowergirl to hold! So cute!

Bridesmaids were all the same as the bride, but a little smaller, and trimmed with black satin.

If you need a corsage for a school formal, but you’re not sure what kind of thing you want, here are some examples:

1: Roses are classic. Here we have a buttonhole for the guy, and a wrist corsage for the girl using miniature roses.

Roses come in lots of colours – white, pink (pale to dark), red, orange, yellow, champagne, etc…

2: Orchids are also great. Here are two examples of Singapore orchid corsages in the most popular colours of ‘galaxy’ which is pink/purple with a white throat, and white.

Orchids also come in many colours, even green!

We posted this in the portfolio a little while ago, but we’ll add a little more info here:

This is the bride’s bouquet, 20 stems white ‘icebreaker’ rose, trimmed with black satin and a top of silver sheer ribbon.

A close up.


The bridesmaids had 12 stem rose posies with silver sheer ribbon.

Baby white lisianthus

Another one of our favourite things… crisp white gerberas with black centres.

This wedding was a gorgeous combination of softest peach/apricot with ivory/white. Using mostly roses, with just a few hyacinth flowers scattered through.

Ribbon detail…

Another blue flower that we love is pacific blue delphinium. It is a very tall spike of lots of small flowers. Delphiniums also come in white and mauve.

Another snapshot of an order going out… a cheerful bright box of flowers including gerberas, roses and daisy chrysanthemums.

^Bride’s Bouquet was a simple posy of orange tiger lilies and white oriental lilies bordered by camelia leaves and finished with white satin ribbon.

^The guy’s buttonholes were done using orange and white alstromeria.
