Crimson quill
Tracy Kenny of Select Roses crafted a bouquet built to last. She created a lush, autumn appropriate arrangement by bringing together salal, leucadendrons, rich red wooden poppies and added an injection of originality by bringing partridge feathers into the mix. “The feathers bring life to this bouquet and could be easily incorporated in the table centrepieces and boutonnieres,” says Kenny.

How does your garden grow?
If only your backyard garden was as eclectic as this bouquet. Blossom Shops’ Carolyn O’Leary used Maritime and free spirit garden roses to bring a punch of colour to the rustic and fall-friendly combination of hypercuim berries, green kermit mums, pitt and sunflowers. A few scattered calla lilies add a touch of elegance to this simple yet eye-catching arrangement.

Cream of the crop
Classy and nutritious? Props’ designer Kelsey Langille was the brains behind this textural bouquet that uses green dianthus and looped lily grass to accent the rich purple kale. “We chose the kale for its uniqueness, the great natural shade of purple and the fact that it is an interesting, conversation-starting alternative to flowers,” says Langille.
