Tabletop arrangements, The Camellia, Thunder Bay

 Hello there!! Today, I want to share with you some tabletop arrangements I  recently designed. Just look at this colour combination! One can't help but feel happy..!  The springy-ness of the Lime greens, the splash of sherbet orange with the Tropical Amazon Roses, and the creamy whites of the double Tulips. When planning a Wedding, one often forgets about putting a small arrangement in the Salle de Bain.. The size of this design is just right, flowers are placed in a tall Mason jar.

 This design  is made with the help of a sisal collar, which helps to keep the stems in place. It is a great design aide, and we sell these at our store.

 Look at the colour of the peppermint carnations, against the green hypericum berries, and the white Star of Bethelem.

 Hydrangeas  .. loved by most, but so quick to wilt. These flowers need a lot of hydration, so if you are using these in your arrangements, best to have some extra stems on hand, and someone who can go around during the event checking for water levels and replacing stems if needed. I was at a wedding recently where the girls' bouquets were wilting by the time the Reception came really don't want to have this happening .

 Ornamental Cabbage, variegated pitt, and gerbera daisies add interest to this design.

 This design uses Swiss cheese leaves, and Magnolia foilage, along with white Stargazer lilies.

Spring tulips!!

 Tulips  - they are one of my favourite Flowers!! Brides getting married next Spring are asking for fresh Tulips. These photos were taken at Keukenhof Gardens in Holland - the best Spring bulb Garden in the World! Look at the soft colours......

Faux Tulips are also popular - this is one of our many sample Bouquets you can see when you come into our store. After all, who can order flowers and judge sizes from a photo?

 This Bouquet is also faux...... who would know? And the Bride can use this in her home afterwards as a floral centerpiece in a vase.
