An Alice In Wonderland Birthday

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings...
- Lewis Carroll

Sometimes the most unusual requests are the most fun. This floral is a great example of that. We were asked to create a floral for a 21st birthday gift to be given at a party with an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party theme. We were given a few days so we hoofed it down to the local vintage stores to find a children's tea set. We hot glued the pieces of the tea set onto stakes and added them to floral. We so loved the result, we had to share it with you.

The floral has peonies, roses, sweet William, scented geranium leaf, hydrangea, viburnum and fern curls.

An upside down teacup? Quite mad really.

One lump or two?

: Oh, but that's nonsense. Flowers can't talk.
The Rose: But of course we can talk, my dear.
Orchid: If there's anyone around worth talking to.
Daisy: Or about.
