my bouquet August 15, 2009



 Although I have made hundreds of wedding bouquets over the years, there are very few that I would actually consider having for myself, but this is one of them. It’s actually deceptively simple, just a large posy of cream and white roses with green dendrobium orchids. But the, twiggy vines, Vinca vine and Stephanotis vine turn ordinary into spectacular. This bouquet would look absolutely amazing with a classic ballgown dress.  Finished it’s about 4 feet long – you definitely need your high heels on! – and a real show stopper.

Every wedding this weekend had rose posies! Here is a selection……


‘Avalanche’ roses with asparagus fern and ruscus foliage.



‘Avalanche’ roses with white lisianthus blloms and buds, and white dendrobium orchids.
