Today I had an order to make a funeral wreath.
I LOVE wreaths but this one was a sad one.
I guess funerals are the sad part of floristry and working with flowers.
The wreath was for a gentleman so I chose a blue/mauve colour scheme. The pale lilac coloured Freesias toned down the bright blue Iris' and the grey foliage perfectly complimented it all.
Native Australian Woolly Bush
and an unknown mystery grey foliage that a friend picked in her garden for me.
and I loved the end result
and soft mauve Freesias that smell so sweet
Olive foliage represents the gentleman's Greek heritage and gives it a personal touch.
