Guildford Cathedral Flower Gala 2013 – Floral Designs by Paula Pryke : Part 2

I hope you enjoyed Part 1 earlier today featuring floral designs by Paula Pryke at the Guildford Cathedral Flower Gala last week.

This blog post features designs in the nave with a warm colour palette, starting with this beautiful red and deep pink arch.

It was made using roses, dahlias, bouvardia, achillea, stocks, hypericum and sweet william.

Gerberas, anthuriums, hypericum, netera (bead plants) and oranges were used to create the amazing arrangements below…

And for this yellow design, forsythia, gerberas, anethum graveolens (dill), roses and achillea were used.

Last, but not least, is this polychromatic arrangement with flower-adorned ‘cushions’.

Many of the visitors were intrigued by the Rainbow roses below on the right, with petals in the colours of the rainbow.  They’re sometimes also referred to as Happy roses.

So much thought, planning and hard work has gone into each of the designs and all of them wowed the visitors who came in their coach loads to the cathedral.

Later this week, I’m planning on featuring more images from the Flower Gala.

But in the meantime, you may like to read these other blog posts which I wrote last week :
