Matching Invites

I'm starting to love taking these shots that show how folks come in with an invitation looking for inspiration for their table centerpieces. How cool is the interpretation of the invites for Doree's birthday party floral centerpieces? Kudos have to go to design manager Holly on this one who matched the look and feel of the invites in all three dimensions! White gerber daisies, orange roses and protea along with accents of curly willow arranged in a cylinder complete with ribbon accents. The design is flawless and they looked amazing all set up at Forsgate Country Club last night!

Add a Bit of Willow

I'm just sitting here between trying to read my Floral Management and cathing up on e-mails, something catches my eye which gets me to thinking. This weekend we have two parties - one a bar mitzvah and one a bat mitzvah where we will be using one of my favorite "accents". Curly willow. I love using curly willow. A delicate and graceful natural branch that can add a bit of drama to floral design work. About 3 years ago my niece Rosalie met with me to talk about her wedding flowers. "I want lots of roses, pearls and sticks in my wedding arrangements, Aunt Georgianne". Um, Rosalie, has your Aunt not taught you that those are not sticks - branches, my dear, they are branches.  If I told my brides that I wanted to add sticks to their wedding flowers, they would want to hit me!! But truly, how can you call these lovely line elements sticks? Still fresh and bendable when they arrive to our shop, they are such a fantastic floral tool both natural and architectural in
