His & Hers: Mon Petit Chou

One of the many roses that took my fancy at Highbank was a Hybrid Tea called ‘Mon Petit Chou’ (My Little Cabbage). Endless layers of strong pink ruffles open in the style of a cabbage rose, sometimes exposing the strange green spikes in the centre.

Inspired by these I added some raspberry pink ruffled sims (which also has an exquisite scent), striped euphorbia, ivy berry, sedum and snowberries for a really bold but feminine statement. This is the sort of bouquet I could see Kirsten Dunst carrying in Marie Antoinette – the stems were finished with a corset of vintage silk shantung laced with french knots, quite befitting the Queen of France, non?

Not to be outdone, the King shall wear a sim carnation boutonniere framed with euphorbia and ivy berry.

Pink roses represent perfect happiness, sedum imparts tranquility, pink carnations say "I'll never forget you", euphorbia is for persistence, and ivy has long been known for wedded love.
