Wedding In Purple Tones

Two weeks ago a lovely bride has contacted me via my Etsy store and has asked if I could make florals for her 31/12 wedding!

Primary colors should be purple and cream. After couple of messages we have agreed on various purple tone roses, cream gardenias and stephanotis.
Initially she asked me to create a bouquet for her, four centerpieces, two corsages for mothers and a boutonniere for the groom.

Bridal bouquet...


Centerpiece...Corsages...

Later she also asked for add some cream color hair pins.



I was also asked to add the pearls to stephanotis flowers, which I think made the flowers look more romantic!



Somehow my camera could not recognize the right purple colors, which in realty look a bit different...

I am very satisfied how the pieces turned out, and hope that my client will like them as well when she receives the parcel!

Now I have to start making the order for hair pins and headbands which I recently received from the local hairdresser's, they are interested in selling unique hair accessories and told that my flowers is what they have been looking for!

After that some more Christmas orders to complete...

Do not know if I manage to make Seasonal gifts for my relatives, but I am happy to receive the orders, it is always challenging and allows me to implement new ideas and learn new techniques :)

Hair Pins on Etsy.com

Few weeks ago I decided to list my hair pins at my Etsy store!

Etsy appeared to be extremely seller- and buyer-friendly on-line store! It is very convenient in all the terms: payment via Paypal, exchange of message with the buyer/seller, description of the goods, shipping policy etc.

These are some of my pins which you can find there!

The flowers can be attached to different types of the pins and clips: bobby pins, u shape pins, alligator, clips, barrettes...

Centerpieces With Roses, Hydrangeas, Peonies, Gardenias, Cherry Blossom....

Few days ago I decided to make the centerpieces from the flowers I made for training during the past thee months.
I think storing these flowers in the boxes would be a mistake... So this is the result...

Three small centerpieces 10 cm in height.
I used egg cups as vases :)



I really like this peony, poppy, ranunculus, cherry blossom and hydrangea arrangement! It is 12 cm in height.
Green, white and peach colors look so fresh and remind me of summer :)

Red Tulip Centerpiece

Last week a got an order for 3 different bouquets:

- Red tulips
- White and yellow hydrangeas
- Yellow, white and lilac freesias and white roses

After couple of sleepless nights I have finished red tulip arrangement.
It was a real challenge for me, as have not been making the tulips before.
the bouquet has 33 tulip flowers and buds and is 22 cm in height.





Hope I will be able to finish two other bouquets by Sunday.

Couple of days ago one of my customers asked if I could make a peony flower for her.

I have not tried to make the peonies before, however I am quite satisfied with the result...

Tropical flowers: orchid, plumeria, gardenia, stephanotis, freesia...

This is a tropical flower bouquet I have presented to my lovely aunt.

Before giving the flowers have managed to make the photos only to my mobile phone, so the quality of pictures is not that good...

New works

We were lucky to have 5 day state holidays here in Latvia. I was so happy to be able to spend more time for flowers. As a result I managed to make a bouquet for my mother's birthday and some flowers for brooches and hair pins.












































Have made a photo with toothpicks to show the size of the flowers



























Lemon color gerbera flower. I really like how it came out. Sooo real...





























Hair clip with poppy
