Sugar Flower Collaboration

A Creative Sugar Flower Collaboration

Most of my work is well planned in advance, weddings are booked up to 18 months before the date and classes are always scheduled several months ahead. Sometimes though something fun and creative gets thrown your way at short notice and no matter how busy you are you have to fit it in! Such an opportunity happened for me last month when O’Reillys Auctioneers of fine jewellery asked me to collaborate in creating a sugar flower bouquet for their March catalogue cover.

O’Reillys Auction Rooms

The Sugar Flower Brief

For the March cover Natasha Bernon of O’Reillys approached me with the idea of using some of my sugar flowers to create a bouquet that could be held by a model wearing some of the gorgeous jewellery available at the auction.  The brief was to herald the arrival of Spring, with pretty flowers reminiscent of Mother’s Day to be held against a vibrant spring backdrop. I made a bouquet using a mix of chrysanthemum, roses, sweet pea, hydrangea buds and foliage in pastel colours… all in sugar! sugar flower bouquet Cove Cake Design
