Christmas British flowers

I did promise photos of my big bouquets from the Diggin' Design fair at the Garden Museum, so here are a few.

The Christmas eco fair itself was lovely - lots of wonderful designers and creative people selling their wares, and plenty of visitors who were pleased (and sometimes surprised) that my flowers were all from British growers. This jam jar posy caused a very polite and British tension when two customers wanted it...and the poor other posies sat there and thought, "What's wrong with us?"! It was nice, as this was one of a few where I'd used my foliage too - silver cineraria, physocarpus, hebe, and silvery French lavender.

That combination of white, silver and pink is magical at Christmas - I'm not surprised people like it so much.

This bouquet had blue instead of silver, and that's another combination I like: blue, white and pink. It's a bit like a pastel Union Jack!

And this one reminds me of The Lion King...not that Christmassy, but bright and scented. In fact, all of the bouquets and posies were scented.

More photos from the actual fair later...
