Blooms of the week – Lu Diamond


I have been growing zinnias in the garden this year, with the intention of using them as pretty details in my bridal bouquets. But once they were in full bloom, thriving and showing off in the garden I had an extremely hard time cutting them, which resulted in me still ordering bunches as I loved my garden too much. A slight fail in some ways but a huge success in the satisfaction department.BOTWLuDiamond
Much like finishing this bouquet, I had spent weeks prior dreaming of the colour palette, size and shape and once it all came together I was over the moon, satisfaction guaranteed.
The deep pink spray roses smelt so beautiful, and the electric purple tulips along side the after dark foliage gave it that extra punch of colour.
Working with colour is my absolute favourite and though I would never snob off the white and green option, an abundance of colour makes my head swirl!
