Here is one of my favorite holiday arrangements from last year.... I fell in love with the beautiful red/orange roses and the variegated cedar... all the other flower choices and colors came after those two had been picked... lots of texture and warm hues make for a welcoming centerpiece.
These photos of our beautiful bride say it all! Sweet wedding bliss captured in timeless snap shots. I had a lovely time transforming Caitlin’s idea of a ‘fairy’ urban rustic chic inspired wedding into florals. For the centerpieces we incorporated moss blocks, birch bark risers, woodsy table top mushrooms, surrounded by silver crackle votives. Soft peach colored dahlias were the focal point amidst dusty miller leaves, solidago, lycopodium and deep burgundy cosmos.
Caitlin’s bouquet heralded exquisite ivory helleborus, gorgeous lush bells that arched amidst ranunculas (Caitlin’s favorite flower), feathery astilbe, heavenly cosmos, rosemary from the garden and the sweetest peach carnations you have ever seen! The burlap wrap around the stems matched the binding of Matt’s boutonniere … a tiny combination including rosemary, astilbe and hypericum berries.
Caitlin, Siani (Caitlin’s sister) and I had the very best girl time together choosing and arranging these flowers.
Tableart is in sports mode! This Hockey Themed centerpiece was custom made for a Bar Mitzvah. The jersey was hand cut out of foam core and the trim was a combination of spray paint and cut paper. Each one had lit ‘ice’ and team colored balloons in its base.
I got a call from a fellow soccer mom, “Did I do funeral flowers?” And so here is my first floral for a passed beloved. I was on my morning walk with a friend and heard about the disappointing creation that had been made for his mom’s casket; stems not properly trimmed, cheapest flowers possible and then thrown together. And so I was moved to treat this job specially. The dogwood at the flower market that morning was just beautiful and it inspired the whole. I felt so happy as I found complimentary flowers in the same deep coral hue and paired them with a family of creamy whites. Choosing flowers for this occasion was like no other, I didn’t want somber but they couldn’t be too cheerful... I got there in the end, arranging the display with love and Andrea Bocelli singing in the background!
Here tall clear tubes are filled with colored acrylic gems and lit from within by L.E.D. lights. The design was created for a bat mitzvah.
Neon bright colors of illuminated towers brought dazzling sparkle to this Night Club themed bat mitzvah. The centerpieces are filled with colored acrylic gems and topped with a splash of feathers.
Here is a simple wintery birch themed cocktail centerpiece complete with fresh cedar sprigs and frosty pine cones.
Sweet fuchsia butterflies settle amidst birch branches, hydrangea, stock, heather, wax flowers and gorgeous roses. Spring is here!
