Mayor’s Making Flowers 2014

This time last year I provided the flowers for Mayor’s Making at The Double Tree by Hilton. I dis so again this year, but more on that at a later date.

The council colours are cream and green and I am asked to stick to these colours where I can but I am given free reign on the flowers used as long as I keep to budget.

I provide 2 presentation bouquets to give to the Mayor’s and Sheriff’s ladies at the ceremony.

On this occasion I used cream proteas, astrantia and stallion chrysants along with green shamrock chrysants and peach carnations along with thalspi and asparagus fern.

The table centrepieces were in a green pot using the same flowers as the hand ties. Height was added with a steel grass cage.
