Last week we had the honour of being asked to create fresh floral leis/garlands to be gifted to the Duke & Duchess of Sussex by the guys behind the wonderful mental health awareness organisation One Wave
After hearing the exciting announcement that Prince Harry & Meghan Markle were expecting a baby next year, I couldn’t help myself but to create a sweet baby lei for the new royal!
(Meghan carrying this in may of the images captured that day).
We also created 20 floral crowns in bright colours and foliages along with another 18 leis for the lucky members of One Wave to wear for the occasion.

We are so happy and excited to have been involved in such an awesome day for mental health awareness and to have royalty adorned in our work, strolling along the famous landmark and beautiful beach of Bondi.
The leis were threaded using local and imported carnations, local ranunculus in bright tangerine, pinks and peachy tones & a whole bunch of varieties of spray carnations - all very much absolute favourites to work with here at Oh Flora.
Here are a few captures from this wondering day!
