Wellingtons beautiful farewells casket and funeral flowers November 18 2016

Funerals, farewells and services to loved ones are so personal.

 I always feel honoured when I am asked to make such a special floral  tribute - there is no 'normal' when it comes to choosing flowers for a farewell.

People have chosen monotone flowers, bright and bold, soft and pretty, garden flowers, and caskets made from vegetables - for a very keen vegetable gardener. Families have chosen different options from  a simple posy lying on its side tied with a lovely satin ribbon, a round wreath or long and low casket arrangements from small to extremely lush and large.... whatever suits the personality, colours and traits of your loved one.

Thank you to the families, friends and loved ones who have entrusted us with these gorgeous gestures.

Winter wedding in Wellington July 09 2016

This gorgeous wedding was held at St Andrews on The Terrace in Wellington and then the guests were taken over to Logan Brown in a double decker bus for all to eat great food and celebrate! 

Scent provided a gorgeous bridal bouquet in lovely pastel tones, a stunning aisle made of soft tone petals, lined with candles and pretty posies and candles in gold throughout Logan Brown.

It was a stormy night and the candles created a feeling of warmth and intimacy (once the guests has blown in the door).

Another job we loved being a part of - thank you C and M

Fun, fresh flowers, frolicking and fundraising......Karen Louisa Foundation April 22 2016

We love our job here at Scent and sometimes other than making peoples day special and look beautiful we also get to donate our time and skills to special causes - one of which we are proud to help with is the Karen Louisa Foundation - they are doing great things for cancer research .... Karen's family is a very special one and it is our pleasure to help them.  We have held the launch party and we have also had 'fiesta' both of which raised enough money to 'make a difference' so hopefully one day people don't have to feel the pain and suffer the loss that Karen's family and friends are going through.....our hearts go out to them here at Scent and we want to do something to help, we can't do much to heal the pain or anything to fill the void but we can help them to help make a difference.....
