Cool White Roses

Cool whites for a hot summer afternoon. We used true whites to achieve this bouquet. Also, note the interesting angle of the nosegay - if this was a "hand tied" bouquet, with natural stems, it wouldn't have the same panache. I love the soft greens of the sword fern peeking from the underside.

Picture Infinity did a great job of capturing the Bride's sweet smile

I loved this whole wedding. Loved the kilts...Loved the color and texture really was refreshingly different. Kudos to Magdelena and Gareth for their style.

Scottish Wedding

Vivid shades of blue, green and lavender complimented the family tartan. The Bride and Kim really came up with a winning color scheme.
The Maid's Bouquet was very similar to the Bride. However, the handle treatment and size were different. The Maid's handle was based with deep blue satin then French-wrapped in hyacinth blue double faced satin. The Bridal bouquet was wrapped in ivory double face
Lime green with a yellow tint and lavender with a grey tint are not an easy match but combined with the sapphire blue hydrangea..Wow. Add a bonnie plaid kilt and you have a unique wedding!
Yesss, I have a great trio of photos with the kilt. I just can't get them to upload. Tomorrow - I promise.

Babies Breath May Kill Cancer Cells

Reprinted from Florists Review Enterprises
Researchers in England have discovered that extract from Babies Breath (Gysophila paniculata) could aid in the treatment of leukemia.
The researchers at The Simon Flavell Leukaemia Research Laboratory in Southhampton, observed that the molecules known as saponins, obtained after extraction from the plant, appear to break down cancer cell membranes. This assists antibody-based medications, known as immunotoxins, in assaulting the malignant cells and could augment the efficacy of these medications by more than one million times.
Dr David Flavell, whose son the laboratory is named after, says the finding could be applicable to several other cancer forms in addition to leukemia. Scientists are preparing a clinical trail, which is expected to take three to five years.
