Today our beautiful “Advent of Flowers” features draws to a close but not before we showcase another six beautiful blooms perfect for a winter wedding bouquet! This weeks features were created by Liz Inigo Jones of Blue Sky Flowers who’s one of the talented florists supporting the Juno & Joy Flower Guide – created to help inspire and perhaps even educate brides on what’s available within our shores…
This really is a must for Christmas time , draped over mirrors, around banisters and along table centres. Whether you have the berried or the long straight trailing kind, you can’t go wrong with it.
Not just for Valentine’s Day, this most popular of wedding flower is a perfect gift all year round, available in hundreds, yes hundreds of colours. Dark plum red or pure white are great for decorating a Christmas table.
This pale pink Avignon variety is big, blousey and beautiful. Very long lasting it has helped bring the humble Chrysanthemum come back into fashion.
22 Lisianthus (Eustoma)
From pure white, cream, pale through to hot cerise pink, lilac, lavender, green and even brown, the Lisianthus is a soft, pretty flower perfect for almost any bouquet.
Almost every bride loves a ‘nunc. They are soft, delicate, temperamental but oh so beautiful.
24 Hellebore (Christmas Rose)
There are certain flowers that you wait and wait for and … with the Hellebore, it is so worth it. Delicate drooping heads hide freckly faces that look as if they have been freshly painted.
No need to explain this one really – the good old Christmas tree. Nordmann Firs and Norweigian Spruces are the most popular these days and don’t forget to recycle it locally in January.
With thanks to Liz for her help, support and innovation and to all our Collective experts for their support this year.
