Not quite December yet but today we designed and delivered our first winter wedding of the season. Combinations of deep velvet red Grand Prix roses, ivory Avalanche roses, gerbera and hypericum berries were used for the bouquets, aisle, ceremony and tables.

We've had a busy few days at our Flower School with the Signature Style Masterclass on Sunday and Table Centrepieces last night. We love teaching our skills and style and had some great participants on both classes.
Next up are the Christmas classes which take place on Thursday 22nd December before we start the new year with lots of new additions to our schedule including our One Week Career Course - there are only two spaces left on this so please get in touch soon if you would like to take your first steps into a new career.
On Saturday we created flower designs for a Bar Mitzvah. In the morning, we filled the synagogue with white phalaenopsis orchids then used 1,500 Grand Prix roses to create architectural table centrepieces for dinner in the Radisson Blu hotel. With help from events company Banana Split, who lit the room beautifully, we were delighted with the results.
Last weekend we got the opportunity to fill the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow with beautiful Avalanche and Sweet Avalanche roses. Guests were greeted by an avenue of floor standing candelabras to the chuppah ceremony area. Dinner was served in the ballroom where we brought some old fashioned glamour with trailing pearl beads attached to our silver candelabras.

It was a pleasure for us to be involved in the two day Scotland Means Business campaign with VisitScotand, allowing us to work in two of our city's finest buildings: the Kelvingrove Museum and the Science Centre. We sculpted yellow tulips into fishbowl vases for the Science Museum but went for more Scottish themed colours and flowers for Kelvingrove combining thistles with coolwater roses and purple veronica.

We are incredibly lucky at Mood Flowers to be able to decorate some amazing events with flowers. Last night we worked with the very talented Display Works to create a stunning Bat Chayall, using lots of eucalyptus, brunia berries and hundreds of purple vanda orchids.
If you're looking for ways to decorate your home with flowers and foliage this Christmas then check out pages 36-42 of the current issue of House Beautiful magazine. Nick helped Rosalind Erskine style the Mooneys' house with lots of fresh eucalyptus, fir, Grand Prix roses, mango calla lilies and red cymbidium orchids.
We love it when brides choose bold colours for their wedding flowers. On Saturday we provided flowers for a wedding at Hotel du Vin at One Devonshire Gardens using Purple Power roses and steel blue viburnum berries - a wonderful combination.
