Conception Garlands was founded in 1985 by David Calbert, with the first garlands being made from live flowers for the Show Horse Council.

David has an extensive knowledge of horses and, with a background in window display and floral work, the silk flower garlands quickly followed.

For more than four decades, Conception Garlands have graced the necks of some of the country’s finest show horses.

Amongst other shows, prestigious events such as Barastoc HOTY, Sydney Royal Easter Show, Melbourne Royal Show, Brisbane Royal Show, Equitana and the East Coast Arabian Show have proudly showcased Conception Garlands.

Conception Garlands are well known for delivering elegant and quality garlands for major awards. The high standard of materials used in these garlands allows for that special “stand out from the crowd” moment.

Conception Garlands is a leader in the making of individual floral works of art.

Over the years people have enquired about a range of more affordable garlands designed for smaller clubs and associations. NOW Conception Garlands is proud to offer a range of garlands, 2 or 3 wide, with the colours of your choice. (Click here to view the range)

Please contact me to discuss the availability of flowers you would prefer to have used in your garlands (see garlands page for inspiration).

“I never get tired of looking at beautiful horses, especially if they are wearing a Conception Garland,” David Says.
