Mothers Day 2011

With The Royal Wedding Just around the corner, I have taken my inspiration for My 2011 Mothers Day Collection from all the Royal, Regal and Romantic. So this year treat your Special Mum to one of these Little Treasures. Great Britsh Mum: A dainty arrangement in a silver galavanised tin filled with all things lovely, a sprinkle a spring, splash of sunshine and a dusting of dolly mixed colours. All finished off with a spotted ribbon. Prefect for Little Princesses to give. This was this years best seller, and was so cute, and smelt divine! An English Rose: A beautiful classic Hand Tied Bouquet of mixed flowers true to an English Garden. Including blushing garden roses, stocks, blue hyacinths and wild foilages. Queen for a Day: A glorious hand tied bouquet of raspberry pink and deep plum scented spring blooms and English herbs all arranged in pale pink wrapping with a keepsake message tag.

After an exhusting weekend, it was all worth it to see all those lovley Mummys smile on Sunday morning.

50's Glamour in Spring

April 2nd was the wedding of Fiona and Tom that took place at St Mary's Church in Bexley Village, followed by a reception at Sundridge Park. The theme was 50's glamour and a colour palette of antique gold, spring cream and green.

The Brides dress was a simple and classic shape which resembled an Audrey Hepburn style. The bouquet was kept simple with a neat dome of ivory tea roses, studded with pearls, The stems were detailed with fabric matching the Brdiesmaids Dresses.

The girls wore simple wrist corsges of white orchids, gold grass and pearl deatils- Very Pretty.

At Sundridge Park, The ballroom was filled with perfume as I placed the centrepieces into the room. The Tanks were filled with all spring flowers including hyacinths and narcisscus, which smell just delightful! The flash of lime green just lifted the tables and gave a great flash of spring accross the room.

I had detailed the vases with a simple sash of ivory ribbon with a classic pleat bow.

Bountiful bunches were anchored to the pillars with lushious bows to creating a sweeping feature to the staircase. I loved the personal name place cards that Fiona had created- I am sured these raised a lot of laughs around the room and would certainly get the guests talking. Oh and the transport of You all was FAB...A Vinatge Double Decker Bus!

Here is a lovely note from Mr and Mrs Ashford.

"Dear Nicola We just wanted to put in to word our thanks for all that you did on our wedding day. Everything you put together was absolutly beautiful and so many people both commented on your table decorations and my bouquet. We took the top table display to my grandmothers nursing home the next day as she could not come to the wedding and so it was enjoyed by many more people even after the wedding.Please find attached a few photos of the brilliant flowers that you arranged for us. We would thoroughly recommend your services to any potential bridal parties.

Kind RegardsFiona and Tom Ashford"
