Manzanita Mania

When I first saw an arrangement using a Manzanita branch, I couldn't wait to try recreating the look. This is the first arrangement we did which was for a Bridal Expo in Frederick, Maryland. Wedding shows are a lot of work but the upside is we are free to do some over the top pieces. I would like to thank Jeff, a very talented designer, for helping making this a success.

Balancing Act

Calla Lilies seem to be a favorite among customers and they are also a favorite of mine. They can certainly stand on their own in an arrangement. A trend from the last couple years has been arrangements being inside and outside their container. The picture of this centerpiece is a great example. The fact that the vessels are stacked demands attention from the guests.
