The sun is shining and from my kitchen window I can see hazel catkins swaying in the gentle breeze against the clear blue sky and the first daffodils are starting to appear in my garden. It’s a lovely day, spring like, though we could still see proper winter weather for many weeks to come yet.
So on this sunny day I decided my blog and social media needed a little sunshine too!
I made this bouquet a few years ago as a wedding fair display sample – it contains artificial hazel catkins and leaves, yellow daffodils, tulips and ranunculus, with a yellow paper detail.
The bouquet and matching buttonhole caught Emma and Neil’s eye at the wedding fair and they ordered them along with four smaller bridesmaids bouquets and eight buttonholes. Although their wedding was in the middle of summer they still loved the spring flowers and just replaced the tulips with buttercups and a few yellow daisies. You can see more photos on the Real Weddings page.
The mixture of spring flowers and foliage with summer flowers looked lovely and only possible because artificial flowers are available all year round, allowing you to have whatever flower and colour you like no matter the season.
