We love…Peaches

It’s the last month of summer and the peaches are at their best . Use in pies, cakes, tiny tarts or fresh in a fruit salad with other summer fruit.

A rocket salad featuring peaches and goats cheese could be yummy or even grilled on a barbeque and served with prawns.

Used in Bellinis with champagne they will provide a festive summer cocktail, or create your own ‘mocktail’ by juicing peaches with other fruits, serving on ice with a mint leaf garnish or a swizzle stick.

Elegant in their rosy glory, poached and served with raspberry sauce, they are a treat for the eye as well as the tastebuds. And who could forget a peach Melba?

What about a dessert table featuring peaches in all their different guises?

We Love…Perfumed Flowers

Perfumed flowers are a joy to the senses at any time, but at a wedding they add an extra note to the celebrations.


Flowers by Stewart

Include them in your wedding bouquet, in arrangements on the tables, tucked into an archway of flowers and greenery, or tied in small bunches to the church pews or the backs of your chairs at the reception.


Flowers by Greenhem

Flowers to consider are bulbs such as paperwhites (narcissus), hyacinths, and lily of the valley. Some carnations have a clove like scent as do lilies. Gardenias, lilacs, jasmine and scented roses have an old fashioned air and a wonderful fragrance. In the tropics who could go past frangipani for the perfume and their beauty?

It’s best to be disciplined in your approach and chose just one perfumed flower to use in your arrangements – more will confuse the senses and become overwhelming!
