Wire work

Delicate flowers need to be wired to keep them standing straight whilst more robust plant material will still look as fresh as a daisy at the end of the day.

Shower bouquets

Shower bouquets are wired to provide the long stems for the trailing flowers.

Wired bouquets have a slim handle and are lighter than hand tied bouquets, so they are more comfortable to carry.

Buttonholes

Once wired, the flowers and foliage in a buttonhole can be adjusted into position.  If the stem of a wired flower snaps, there’s no need to worry that the head will fall off as the wire has secured it.  

Do remember that hugging is part and parcel of weddings – and buttonholes are perfectly placed to be squashed!  Corsages too, if worn by female guests and relatives.

Creative class

A creative class followed by a cream tea is a lovely experience to gift for a special birthday or celebration.  Or treat yourself and enjoy learning something new.
