Bonnie Heather – An Arrangement With Heather, Chinaberries and Pittosporum – Week 12

The heather flower colour influences its meaning. Purple represents admiration and beauty and pink is good luck. White heather is rare and much like a 4 leaf clover in celtic mythology, white heather represents exceptional good luck and protection from danger. One legend says that white heather grows only over the burial grounds of the fairy folk. I love the outcome of this arrangement. Great for home decor or as a gift. Make 3 and group them on a shelf, mantle or dining table.

Celosia – One Cool Looking Flower – Week 10

I used the “cockscomb” variety of celosia for this arrangement. I found it to be quite top heavy so decided to create a design that was tight and low. I love the combination of variegated spray roses and heavily textured celosia and the rugged stone container. Rustic, yet contemporary; you can find spray roses at supermarkets and floral shops. Celosia is available from a floral shop. If you can’t find pittosporum, ivy is a perfect substitute when cut into short sprigs.
