Wedding Flowers for Men - Buttonhole Recipe's for Winter

  Every man should wear flowers … and not just on his wedding day. I’m such a firm believe in this – a little nod to the seasons pinned onto ones jacket certainly gives the wearer such an air of distinction it would be a shame to limit this effect just to your wedding day.   And boys, guess what – you don’t have to wear a single rose with a teeny tiny leaf … no! The modern man dons a tiny collection of fleurs fully embracing the season. Here to inspire (as always) are 3 of our winter buttonhole […]

A Hanging Floral Instillation

So normally I start off gushing about the bridal bouquet - and although Lara's bridal bouquet is possibly my favourite of the season, we just have to start off sharing this ultra huge giant wreath constructed especially for her big day.

Spring Urn

This beauty almost fell into my handbag on the way home today. I think it may be my favourite urn arrangement to date. These miniature metal urns are completely perfect - the right size for plants, arrangements and not too huge that they would swap a table setting for a dinner party. They are also super versatile to arrange in. Make a hand-tied bouquet, use some oasis, chicken wire (always my preference) or those funny little pin cushion flower frogs. I'm more of a chicken wire lady myself, scrunch a tiny piece up and simply just start threading your stems […]
