For every client I do a sample so we can ensure they are happy on the day of their event. I consider this sample more of a tablescape than I do a traditional centerpiece. The bride was getting married on December 23rd and the reception was being held at a golf club in a room with wood beams and a large stone fireplace so she wanted something that would compliment the venues rustic elegance. After this picture was taken we decided to plug in some red hypericum berries for a little more color and some pine cones for texture. If you are going to use Amaryllis, make sure you get them way in advance because they come in a tight bud and you want to have plenty of time for them to open up to their full potential. We had to keep adding warm water in the buckets of the cut stems in order to expedite the process.
The bride's bouquet was comprised of the same Amaryllis with white Open Cut Callas, white Roses, and green Magnolia leaves.
