Edinburgh University Spring Ball

I created table centres on a budget for The University of Edinburgh Geosciences Spring Ball at the Roxburghe Hotel, Edinburgh. The students had a Casiono Royale theme and wanted the arrangements to be black and red. I placed black gravel in fish bowls and floated red gerbera and orchid flowers in the water. I added beargrass for interest and contrast.

Wendy and Dave's wedding

Wendy and Dave were married in the Undercroft at Linlithgow Palace. I created a ceremony arrangement for the top table using avalanche roses, genista, veronica and eustoma. Since it was quite a dark space, light coloured flowers were most suitable. There were also candle stands in the venue that I decorated with some foliage and flowers, and with the few flowers that were left, I created a little posy for the entrance door.

The brides and bridesmaids' bouquets were dropped off at the Glasshouse Hotel, Edinburgh. I used akito roses, eustoma 'piccolo blue' and eryngium (thistles) in the bouquets. Since the bride had beading on her dress, I attached a few diamanté headed pins to some of the roses to complement the sparkle of her dress. For the guests, I made thistle buttonholes and orchid corsages.
