The F word!

A close look
I really like this arrangement - especially the do-dovine draping over it. Shame no one is coming for tea!
An open spray for a casket. The mechanics are apparent but we were just looking for the over all shape.

Maybe not what you think as this is a pretty G rated blog. F is for Funeral work. Something I am not sure if I was looking forward to at our course but I was pleasantly surprised with the progress and outcome of our creations. Here are just a few shots of the examples.
It was quite weird going back to college after my work experience. I found myself comparing myself once again with my classmates. They are all fantastic and will make wonderful florists. I would buy from many of them. I am also surprised by the fact that we all have the same bucket of flowers and design concepts and yet the end results are completely different. It just goes to show it is not paint by numbers.
There is a little piece of every florist in their work.


  1. Flowers really make a home. Unfortunately I just don't have the knack to make them look as wonderful as they should.

  2. It just takes practise an a little knowledge. :) thanks for posting. x Suzi

  3. I wish I could do even half an needs skill, patience and a gift ;>!!
