I absolutely love what this time of year has to offer! The antique hydrangea is beautiful. The addition of a few roses and two different varieties of cymbidium orchids makes this a simple yet stunning arrangement. I doubt that the average person realizes that each individual orchid flower is hand wired before being placed in the arrangement. That's a lot of time when you have eight flowers to a centerpiece and there are 15 tables. I think it's worth it!

A Vision of White

The composition of this arrangement was made up of White Casablanca Lilies, Dendrobium Orchids, Calla Lilies, White Tibet Roses, and assorted greens. The mass of blooms sat atop a glass vase. A funny side note about this arrangement has to do with the Casablance Lilies. I always try to make sure that the client gets the most bang for their buck by trying to ensure that the blooms are at the peek for the event. I had the lilies early enough to get the buds to open but what really helped was putting the bucket of lilies in our van for a couple of hours. The warmth from the sun on the van made the flowers explode with open blooms. Hey, you do what you gotta do!
