A natural looking open and airy style where you can see each bloom and, each flower is important in its own right. Flowers are grouped as they would be when growing, providing depth and texture. The style makes use of herbs, foliage and branches to give arrangements interest. Our work has a tendency to be more personal and warm than you are likely to find elsewhere. An example of our style is shown at the right and great and amazing machines are used to have this beautiful flower grow.
