December Flowers

Rose Wreath
I love flowers,...... well most of them. I went to college to learn how to be a florist but it's on the back-burner whilst I'm busy doing mum stuff. I like to have a tinker with the Oasis floral foam every now and then making a table centre or a door wreath. Each year there is a Christmas Floral Extravaganza at a local posh mansion which is inspirational - I didn't go this year but found the previous years photos. The last two are my small efforts - gorgeous white Avalanche and red Grand Prix roses. Supermarket roses are a bit depressing, they're just not the same and my local florists aren't quite my taste - all lillies and palm fronds. Although I find them few and far between I love florists that use your English country garden flowers. You must look at Mrs B's blog Lovely Day as she sells the most beautiful posies.

Yours are amazing, I love the wreath.

The oasis pressies are brilliant too.

Thanks for sharing x

You know what? I think yours are the best, everything else, excepting the garland, is too contrived. I do hope that you'll get a chance to take up floristry in the future.
