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

Creams and Greens

With all the colors available to us, I have to say that I'm still a sucker for creams and greens. It's just so relaxing, elegant and unassuming, don't you think. One of this past weekends weddings for bride and groom Krystal and Rob had us doing flowers in shades of green (yes green flowers) and off whites. Below is the design bench as designer Norman works on one style centerpiece for their reception. Clear cylinder vases filled with ivory roses, cream hydrangeas, bells of Ireland and buplurium accented with natural ruscus. These are going to look amazing on the tables.   I especially loved her brides maids bouquets. Here is me holding one which matched my outfit perfectly! :) I especially loved Krystal's bouquet of cream dahlias and roses, white arabicum and super green garden roses. Light accents of buplurium kept the bouquet from looking to planned and gave her the natural feel she was going for. Such a pretty late summer flower combination don't you
