Giant #chandelier from late last year, in cahoots with the awesome team from Here Comes The Truck at one of our fave local venues Rokeby Studios⠀ Greenery can be just as effective as #flowers en masse!⠀
One of the last ones we smashed out between Chrissy & the new year.⠀ Deb had this to say:⠀ "A very big THANKYOU for your magical work on the #flowers for the #wedding. They were absolutely perfect and exactly how I had imagined and hoped, I think even better actually. Awesome work.⠀ ⠀ They really made the day and the reception was just beautiful. ⠀ I hope to pop by some time when I'm in the area over the year to say hello.. as we did all of this via email and phone :)"⠀ ⠀ So if we can exceed a brief without meeting our clients, imagine what we can do if you book a consultation with us! ⠀ ⠀
Hope you all have a fantastic day today and a safe and happy new year!⠀ ⠀ Thanks for all your support throughout 2017.⠀ Looking forward to an awesome 2018!

Signing table sweetness.⠀ ⠀ With the wild weather warnings looming before their #ceremony Lauren & Ross opted to move indoors sooner rather than later. It can be a hard call at the best of times in Melbourne!⠀ ⠀ We've been experiencing a much higher level of enquiries via the #grooms side lately and we think it's awesome. Sometimes it's something they just want to do and sometimes it's been delegated but either way, these guys have been stepping up, getting the ball rolling and nailing the co-ordination.⠀ ⠀ Ross was one of these grooms, we know organising a #wedding is a whole new world for most couples and when it gets to flowers and styling, it's another level entirely!So hats off to these guys who are delving deep into unfamiliar territory! Don't worry, we've got your backs 👊
More fun #flowers for @harveypr.⠀ Modern arrangements, that play with lines and form are always going to wow your guests, especially in a bold colour palette.⠀ We love creating unique and unusual pieces; keeps us on our toes and prompts us to keep exploring the endless world of #floral art.⠀
Working with clients that trust your creativity gives you the opportunity to exceed their expectations because, although they know you're going to do something great, it also allows you to choose the flowers that best work for their budget and brief. ⠀⠀⠀ That's why, when the team from Harvey Publicity give us their colour palette and style, we can make fun things like this!
You all know we love a #succulent, or 10, so when Amy told us she wanted them mixed into the #centrepieces with white Hyde, peachy roses and grey gum, we knew they'd look stunning.⠀ ⠀ Amy organised her #wedding from afar, which we know can be a stressful experience. It's something that happens often and we always do what we can to assure our couples have an amazing experience with us regardless of whether we meet face to face or not.⠀ ⠀ She also had this to say...⠀ ⠀ "It was a real pleasure having you as our florists, so lovely and easy to work with. ⠀ We would be more than happy to recommend you to any of our friends for future floral needs!"⠀ ⠀ So I guess we did our job 😉
Love this colour combo for the Quest Gala Awards night recently.⠀ ⠀
It often takes a few shots of a #bouquet to get "the one", but not for this beauty! She's a one shot wonder and well, no wonder! What a stunner. ⠀ ⠀ Katherin & Josh married at the fabulous @rupertonrupert on Sunday. The weather didn't want to play nice, so they had their photos together pre-wedding at the venue. It felt super special to get to see Josh waiting for his bride and to see Katherin arrive and hand her this bouquet.⠀ ⠀ ⠀
"I just wanted to write to thank you for helping to make our wedding day yesterday so special.⠀ The flowers and event set up were amazing and we couldn't have been happier."⠀ ⠀ Happy couple = happy florist!!Danielle took a moment on her very first day of being married to write us a message and send photos.⠀ That feels pretty special.⠀
Dahlias & Peonies... What's not to love?⠀ Alicia originally chose all Peonies for her #bouquet but we love that she decided to mix it up a little with some extra #floral elements. ⠀ ⠀ There's a lot of love for Peonies in the wedding world but the white variety can be notoriously tricky to work with, sometimes they'll open with a hot pink centre or open to reveal that they're very yellow inside. You may have been babysitting them for days to get them to just the right stage of bloom, then they pop open a totally different colour! Eeekkk! Lucky we have awesome suppliers that have got our backs when navigating Mother Natures cheeky humour!⠀ ⠀
