What’s new for April

Our design team has been busy editing new designs for this month’s new release.

        

There are bright roses, gorgeous orchids, smiling gerberas just to name a few.  With the cool change slowing making its way (VERY slowly!) in for the winter months, we will also have a range of striking tulips, hyacinths, gorgeous calla lilies, gladioli and even sweet smelling freesias to help inspire us.

Along with these new designs we also have introduced an exciting new product called Designer Vision.  This new design product will allow our florists to use only the freshest seasonal flowers to create a gorgeous original design specifically suited to your special occasion.

    

The abundance of all these fabulous flowers and this beautiful Gold Coast scenery, how can we not get excited!

 

 




The artificial flower alternative

Date Added: 23/03/2015

Did someone say artificial flowers?....eeekkk!!

 

What a lovely change it was to go from the current vintage/retro wedding flower style trend to the classic tropical wedding inspired bouquet like the wedding we had on Saturday 21st March 2015. 

 

The Venue:       An Island Hideaway

The Flowers:    Classic fragrant Oriental lilies and frangipanis

The Style:         Tropical/lush bouquets

 

Sounds easy enough, frangipanis in a tropical climate like Queensland is usually abundant.  Fresh frangipanis maintain their beauty and gorgeous scent throughout the night when they are picked at the correct time and given the proper treatment. That is of course until we get the wild weather of the February / March storm season! 

As sturdy as fresh frangipanis can be, they are still a fragile flower and will bruise in the assault of pounding rain and howling winds.

The solution?  Silk frangipanis dotted throughout amongst fresh white oriental lilies surrounded by fresh tropical greenery.  

And here is the result...

                 

And for the boys... (let's face it, we've all seen boys hug at weddings, silk flowers are definitely needed!)

     

See girls, even if you had your heart set on having a flower out of season and your florist either laughs at you or tells you it’s going to cost an obscene amount of money to fly the flowers in, there is always a third option. 

Silk flowers have come a long way in the last 10 years.  Don’t get me wrong, there are still those garishly hideous blue Gerberas out there that look like they haven’t seen a duster for the better part of the last 20 years, but a good wedding florist will work with you and suggest a solution that will work best with both your ideas and budget so that your perfect day truly is a magical event.
