Tell Me If I'm Boring You......

 But I do really love arranging flowers!

These are some recent arrangements I've put together, some at home, some at CIT, and some at the florist.

This one I put together with leftover flowers from CIT. I wasn't really sure how it would go because I only had a certain amount of material to work with. They keep telling us at CIT that a "true" florist has to be able to make arrangements with the materials just at hand. So I gave it a go, and I was happy with the result. That could be because I have this unusual (well at least my family think it's unusual)  love for birds of paradise. Don't you think they look striking??

This one I put together for a friend who recently had a baby. I'm hoping it looked really nice once the orange lilies opened, but I don't know. 

This bouquet I had to put together for my practical exam at CIT. I received a really good result for it, so I was VERY happy!

These next two are ones I've put together at the florist as part of my work experience. The first is a bouquet and the second is a box. 


  1. They are all really lovely Caitlin. Never boring!

  2. What do you mean boring? You have a gift!
