contemporary flower arrangements

Whimsical

When I saw the bunch of agapanthus at the wholesaler I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  It just makes a huge statement on its own and when you put several stems together it really is a wow moment.  So, why not play that up?  I went for a simple base of roses because that's what I had and some gorgeous alocacia leaves.  

These roses are gorgeous!  I love the lavender center and pink tips.

A more contemporary look

I was lucky enough to be able to contribute flower arrangements for a Holy Day celebration at the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette.  The sculpted palm fans were amazing, I just HAD to use them!  Let me know what you think!

Two giant scupted palm fans flanked the podium in the auditorium.  I used dendrobium orchids, liatris, trachelium, callicarpa branches, and aspidistra leaves in a simple, modern white vase.

For the downstairs auditorium I did a tall arrangement in front of the podium with roses, dendrobium orchids, mini artichokes, china berry, curly willow and monstera leaves.

This is the arrangement for the reception desk - mini artichokes, nerine lillies, trachelium, bear grass, berzelia, dendrobium and callicarpa orchids, and amaranthus.

Two of the same arrangements flanked the entrance to the auditorium with callicarpa orchids, liatris, protea, trachelium, berzelia, monstera leaf, curly willow, and Ti leaves.
