Grand Prix & Black Baccara Roses

Cymbidium Orchids

Hydrangea

Skimmia

Ivy Berries

Sarah says: For November’s bouquet we chose the deep burgundy colours that hint that its nearly the festive season. I adore the mixture of cymbidium orchids and roses, it gives a lux feel to any bouquet. The hydrangea has turned this time of year and each petal shows a rainbow of tones. The skimmia and ivy berries echo all the berries in nature this time of year. The roses are Grand Prix and Black Baccara they are velvety in texture and the smell of raspberries.

I love the ribbon detailing as it adds extra interest to the bound stems and also the two tone ribbon adds to the glamour of this little posy. It would look stunning next to dresses that were red, burgundy, sage green or pale pink. We added a gold votive as it just shows how the tones would work well in a colour scheme of these colours.
