Florets - Floral Quote by Erin Benzakein


Bridal Bouquet with pink roses,Gypsophila and Gladiolus

" Big pieces, such as urns and large vases, go quite fast. I love dramatic statement pieces, and I think my excitement speeds things up," she says. 
"Centrepieces or low arrangements often take a bit of time, since securing all the elements in a 'pin frog' can be a bit tricky." In line with her sensual spirit, Erin also has an unusual predilection: "I love weaving edibles - cherry tomatoes, strawberries, baby apples, raspberries, bush beans, herbs, carrots - into bouquets, as well as airy elements so that the slightest breeze can catch a component." To get started, this ambitious achiever's advice is simple: "Just skip your latte once a week and buy a posy of sweet peas instead!"
