You would think it would be easy to create a bouquet when your provided with a swatch for the bridesmaid's dresses, wouldn't you? In this case, the sample was of an iridescent fabric that switched from pink to lavender depending on the light. That's not too bad but the client wanted more lavender than pink but she wanted some pink but not too much pink but don't forget the lavender but not all lavender. "You'll get it right, I know you will" she said. "Oh, okay!" I replied. No problem.
I guess it's the people pleaser in me and I hate to see somebody disappointed so we went back and forth till we thought we had it right. It wasn't until we added the bright green Cymbidium that the bouquet took life.
The bride was very happy. In fact, I think I'll always remember her standing there in her robe with her flawless makeup and hair when she said, "I knew you would get it right!"
