On a beautiful fall evening this past month I had the opportunity to create a series of arrangements for a very special dinner party. The photos and descriptions are below. I thoroughly enjoyed shopping for this event and seeing the vision of my designs come to life.
The above arrangement was located in the family room and carried a more rustic elegant feel. Curly willow, millet, and seeded eucalyptus made up the base of the arrangement while Chinese lanterns and persimmons added playfulness to the spider mums, roses, and berries.
This small arrangement was made for the main bath. Seeded eucalyptus, millet, and dark greens showcased the cherry brandy roses and dried lotus pod.
I put together a trio of arrangements for the kitchen counter/buffet area. Each glass cylinder is wrapped with dark papyrus bark paper from The Paper Zone and finished with chocolate brown velvet ribbon. The smallest arrangement consists of antique hydrangea and seeded eucalyptus while the middle is a simple mix of gerbera daisies and Chinese lanterns. The largest of the trio is made up of dark greens, yellow dogwood branches, red berries, and cherry brandy roses.
Showcased in the formal living room, this arrangements gets its height from the yellow dogwood branches, leucadendron, and dark millet. The arrangement is anchored by antique hydrangeas, red berries, dried lotus pods, and seeded eucalyptus. Cherry brandy roses, orange tulips and green hanging amaranthus add a pop to the overall look.
On the dining room table cherry brandy roses, red spray roses, red mini calla lilies, leucadendron, orange tulips, and crab apples accented a base of green hanging amaranthus, seeded eucalyptus, and dark greens while curly willow looped gracefully around the arrangement.
