Elegant Topiary Centerpieces

Looking for a centerpiece with drama? I present to you a double ball topiary made from Tea Roses, Spray Roses, Dahlias, Canrations, Berries, Mint, Ivy Trails and Mosses. Clearly not in everyone's budget, this piece is perfect for a buffet or escort card table .  Created for this past weekends wedding  held at the Nassau in, this piece would later be moved to the Escort Card Table to greet guests as they arrived for cocktails.   An elegant, peach, orange, red and burgundy theme, this piece was both traditional and formal ~ perfect for the Nassau Inn , wouldn't you agree?

It's Not Easy Being Green

Sorry, I could not resist throwing a little fun into this " Green Themed " blog and don't you just love Kermie anyway? Actually, it is very easy being green at least in the floral design world. Have you ever noticed that when your food arrives to your table at an upscale restaurant their is usually something fresh and green on your plate?  Have you ever wondered why they add a sprinkling of fresh herbs on top of certain foods before presenting them? It is because these herbs not only brighten the palate but also liven the color of the food on the plate. Half the experience of eating is the presentation of the food on the plate and how appealing it looks to the eye. The reason we often add green to our floral designs , is the same reason that chef's add a pop of green on their culinary creations. Adding neutral green adds depth to the design as well making the other colors in the arrangement seem more vibrant. Take the arabicum, berries and hanging amaranthus in

Special Events in Princeton, NJ

It may be Christmas around her but if you are within 50 miles of Princeton University, you are bound to see some Black and Orange, like at this event we just created centerpieces for. We love working with the folks at the University ~ both Staff and Students and it's we are always looking for creative and affordable ways to do up the Tiger theme of Black and Orange.  These centerpieces were designed in plastic black footed bowls using roses, berries, lotus bods and cat tails with a few unusual painted craspedia and pin cushion proteas. Designed with a touch of boxwood, they look seasonal while still being well within the Princeton zone!   Nope it's not Halloween - it's an event at Princeton University!  To see this and more of our event decor for businesses, school and social ~ Be sure to check out event website at www.mondaymorningballoons.com
