This year the Poppy quality was amazing!!!

They are usually very droopy, break easily or don’t open. There is a lot of love and attention that goes into getting a bunch of Poppies to open. They need to have their ends dipped in boiling hot water, fresh-cut, fresh water, leaving in sunlight, fight off a million bees and this starts a week out from the wedding. If opening fails, it takes hours with a tweezer to peel off the furry pod layer that protects the flower…  Then the fun part of guessing what colour they will be begins… I love a good surprise…

…as much as I love a wedding filled with Poppies!!
