I’ve just put this together from left overs and I’m quite pleased with it – I had some orange roses and a bit of amaranthus and so hey presto an orange rosebowl it is….. meanwhile in the oven we have oranges drying so I can start on the Christmas wreaths and things. The great Christmas craft fair season is getting underway.
Tomorrow I’m popping into one in Ossett where you can see and order our signs at Mrs Madden’s house, her speciality is pinnies, customised and vintage ones (see http://www.mrsmaddenmakes.co.uk).
Next week we go to Harewood House for Autumn Glory on Tuesday 26th. Looking forward to it, there’s children’s storytelling, broomstick making and leaf printing and a farmers market and craft market, and more (just can’t remember what else at the mo….) so I need to get busy!

I love flowers….but I was feeling ever so slightly overwhelmed by them today…there was nowhere else for them to go! Thank goodness it was a nice day. I think I need another shed. 25 table arrangements done and delivered though.
Onwards and upwards – tomorrow we’re onto wedding flowers.

Oh I had such a good time last week doing the flowers for a reception at The Mustard Pot in Chapel Allerton, see what you think.
This is my favourite in the silver vase, very glam, and then there was the martini glass which got lots of compliments…..and the tulips, a single colour, such a lovely shade of violet, right along the mantlepiece.
The volcano put paid to the gyp but in some ways I think that’s a good thing. Who would have thought that a simple thing like gyp would have been flown all the way from South America – a 24 hour flight. Surely that can’t be a great use of the world’s resources. So I picked blossom from the trees. Season and local – it looked lovely in the fireplace displays.
