Blooms of the week – Yvonne Reid


Harry and Marisa held their gorgeous engagement party in the stunning venue of the original Van liers glasshouses.  Working with a blank canvas already steeped in family history made for a fun night with family and friends.  A sophisticated colour palette of navy, copper, peach, blush and ivories integrating textural foliages filled the room with scent,warmth and beauty.

With sumptuous arrangements,a floral wall as a back drop and a feature floral archway,the cool Winter night was intimate and inviting.We wanted the room to have a ‘wow’ factor when guest arrived. Delicious food, relaxed happy ambience, dancing and of course stunning flowers.
We dressed the existing glasshouse struts with lichen covered branches and hung festoon lights, along with a generous use of candles the glasshouse was romantic and cosy. A rich use of roses as the family are one of New Zealand’s oldest most established rose growers made creating the floral work a pleasure, can’t wait to see what the wedding will be like…
