A Thank You Bouquet

Recently one of my brides dropped in for morning tea and gave me this gorgeous bunch of ‘thank you’ flowers. It had stems of pretty brassica that also featured in my posts Mon Petit Chou and Petit Chou#2.

The process of designing and creating a wedding dress means spending quite a bit of time with a bride and during the journey from sketch to toile, through fittings to finished gown there are many varied and interesting conversations.

Some are about plans for the festivities – their excitement is contagious and I often help with suggestions for flowers or other details. Occasionally my garden offers up a welcome supply of Cécile Brunner roses for adorning hair or cake.

This last season, a bride’s mother came and picked some of my Perle D’or roses to add to the bridal bouquet and a collection of tiny pine cones I gathered from a picnic were perfect for the men’s buttonholes of my Autumn bridal party.

There was a third gown for my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe that I created with them last June, so I thought I’d share it today.

It is one of the designs in my Haute Couture Collection along with roses,hellebores and peony. AUS$24.95+pp for a 5 card set available here.
