Roses – A Valentine’s Experience

I love roses! I especially love the dark red velvet textured Black Magic roses. But give me roses of any size and colour and I will be happy. Hybrid tea roses, garden roses, sweetheart roses, spray roses - all in hues that represent most of the colour wheel. Roses are also loved by most of the female population of the world and are considered to be the most favoured of all flowers. Personally, I think any woman who says she doesn’t like roses is only saying that because it’s such a popular flower, and she doesn’t want to be associated with the status quo. In my opinion, women are simply genetically predisposed to being attracted to roses.

My First Christmas as a Floral Designer

This is my first Christmas as a floral designer and it has been a busy time. So busy in fact, that my blog posts have had to sit on the shelf for a couple of weeks. As I embark on my final week before Christmas I want to share with you a couple of the projects I have been working on.

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.
