On Monday after a finishing up a styled shoot for NZ Bride and Groom Magazine, we still had these flowers left over and looking vibrant so we decided to do a bit of an impromptu styled shoot of a table set up to showcase these gorgeous blooms.

The central table arrangement was crafted with King Protea - white and pink, Paeonies (alternate spelling peony) in pink, Ruscus in red, dried Lavender and Sea Holly which is part of the Thistle family but a little more on the purple side. The amazing purple balls you see lying on a bed of evergreen are Allium and as well as looking so novel with their bright purple blossoms and spherical form, are actually part of the onion family (often referred to as 'flowering onion') and are entirely edible, best used chopped up into salads and such with a flavour like that of spring onion.

The favour boxes you see on the table in the glass box are custom made by Harlow Garland's bespoke department, Bespoke by HG which is coming soon!

Harlow Garland, as well as being New Zealand's premier wedding planners and stylists, are also curators of wedding floral decor through our specialist florals department, HGBlooms.

We love the way that flowers add such an air of opulence to any event and how just the mere addition of blooms can lift any venue to a higher standard.

We can create all manner of beautiful florals, from bouquets and hair crowns, boutonnieres and corsages, to floral installations, centrepieces and other floral decor.

Whatever your wish, we can create it.

We believe that flowers should be more accessible and thus we don't charge astronomical construction rates, we don't import any international blooms and only use what is in season and readily available at the time of your wedding or event, enabling us to create fresh, seasonal arrangements, lovingly hand-crafted by our own professional and highly-skilled stylists.

Every detail is considered and crafted to the highest quality standard to create your dream floral vision in the lushest, most beautiful blooms and accoutrements.
