It’s been a full 12 months since my friend and Featured Supplier Sarah of Yorkshire Florist Leafy Couture started sending flowers to my inbox every month, and this afternoon we conclude our Year In Bloom feature with the prettiest bouquet of them all.  A heady combination of summery scents in pretty pastel shades.  As usual, it’s bloomin’ gorgeous!

.

Sarah and the Leafy Couture girls will be back to launch another regular feature here on these swirly silver pages shortly, but for now, enjoy the view!

.

Sarah says:  May’s bouquet is a fabulous combination of spring and early summer flowers. The scent is gorgeous from the stocks, peonies and lavender. Scent is such a powerful thing, it can calm the nerves of a excited bride and also bring back wonderful memories of your special day.  The blooms are all billowing, perfect for a English country style wedding.

In this bouquet we have gone for a textured, relaxed feel. A more "just picked" look with less uniformity. It would work really well with a lace dress or long elegant dress with few embellishments. It would also look great with floral bridesmaids dresses.

A Year In Bloom – A Bouquet For October

October 29th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

The clocks have gone back, the ghosties and ghoulies are gathering, the bonfires are ready to be stoked and our monthly bouquets by my friend and guest blogger Sarah of Yorkshire florist Leafy Couture are just getting more and more beautiful.   

.

This vibrant October bouquet wards off the winter gloom, gives a stylish nod to Hallow’een and is my favourite yet.

Crespedia

Hydrangea

Chines Lanterns

Crab Apples

Berried Eucalyptus

Viburnum Steel Berry

Sarah says: We are fully embracing Autumn with this month’s bouquet. We love all the textures and deep colour tones at this time of year, the changing leaves on the trees, that smell in the air, berries in the hedgerows and apple harvests. We have tried to bring it all together in this bouquet. A great choice of colour tone to bring warmth on a cold crisp autumn day.

We have used cherry brandy roses, deep cotinus foliage, scabious seed pods, crespedia, hydrangea, chinese lanterns, crab apples, berried eucalyptus and viburnum steel berry. We finished the bouquet with a jute ribbon. This bouquet would look great with brown, ivory or rich orange bridesmaid dresses.

The bouquet has lots of layers and every time you look you see more details. The cherry brandy roses with their two tone appearance and cotinus with its variegated leaf reflect the changing autumn leaves. The wired crab apples and lanterns add a different dimension and we love to use these in arrangements this time of year.

And if it’s nearly the end of October, that that only means one thing:  Christmas is coming (wahoo)!

.

If, like me, you fancy trying out your floristry skills before you hear the jingle of sleigh bells, then Leafy Couture’s festive classes are for you.  I signed up back in July!  Who is for joining me in decking the halls this December?

.

Learn how to make and decorate a stunning seasonal mossed wreath whilst nibbling mince pies and drinking spiced hot chocolate and we will also be demonstrating how to make some festive decorations for your home.

.
