Autumnal shades

We've been enjoying cool, wet and overcast days here in Kuala Lumpur and it's been a welcomed respite from the heat. 

The word autumn comes from the Old French word autompne (automne in modern French), and was later normalised to the original Latin word autumnus. There are rare examples of its use as early as the 12th century, but it became common by the 16th century. Before the 16th century, harvest was the term usually used to refer to the season. However, as more people gradually moved from working the land to living in towns (especially those who could read and write,  the only people whose use of language we now know), the word harvest lost its reference to the time of year and came to refer only to the actual activity of reaping, and autumn, as well as fall, began to replace it as a reference to the season (cited from the all-knowing and much referenced Wikipedia)

So, inspired by climes on the other side of the world, here's our autumn hued floral offering

“Fiery colors begin their yearly conquest of the hills, propelled by the autumn winds. Fall is the artist.”-Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata, Animal Crossing: Wild World, 2005

A Pearl Wedding Anniversary

Mr. & Mrs. Yong (together with their talented children) celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. What an evening it was, packed with stunning performances, thoughtful speeches, scrumptious dinner and merry making! 

The theme was maroon and pearl - a gorgeous and fitting match for this anniversary.
The floating pearls at the base of the vase added a nice finish.
The candles on the flower stands cast a magical glow around the room when they were lit up.
The tall candelabras with an understated touch of flowing stands of pearls.
Smaller floral candelabras were placed on top of these handsome pillars which featured swirling organic designs.

The deep hues of these maroon roses stood out against the white and green blooms and the glow of the candle light.
Sublime when the house lights came down.
Mr Yong presented his lovely wife with a bespoke bouquet of her favoured madonna lilies. 
The handle featured whimsical pearl beading.

We had heaps of fun at every stage leading up to the event and even more during!  Thank you for letting us play a a part in creating this wonderful setting. Congratulations Mr & Mrs. Yong!

Forget impersonal floral stands. Make a statement!

Flowers to impress clients? Impersonal stands left on outdoor walkways are a thing of the past!   

Make a statement with this tall congratulatory arrangement featuring a lush tropical composition of crab claws, golden ramsy orchids, white dendrobium orchids, eustomas and green ping pong mums alongside curly willow braches and heaps of leaves in various green hues.

 At 5 feet tall it definitely is a statement piece!

Or if space is an issue, then how about this 2.5 feet tall composition of yellow roses, crab claws, AJ storey orchids and cymbidium orchids. 

The recipients of this vase were thrilled which means the client who commissioned it was more than happy with us. Smiles all round!
