Occasionally, a client asks for a certain type of design - I tried my hand on an asymmetrical type of piece for her and this was the result.

Here is a photo of an astilbe, rose, hydrangea and hosta arrangement. I love any varigated leaf and in particular this highly varigated hosta.

This is a little arrangement made for a cocktail party last fall.

Holton Reunion

This past Friday and Saturday was Alumnae Reunion weekend at Holton-Arms School. This is a two day event with lunches, cocktail parties and dinners for returning alums. I used a different color scheme from previous years - for most Holton events I use a color palette of blue/white/yellow - blue and white are the school colors and yellow brightens it up. This year I used pastel blue, pink lavender and silver with a little darker purple to make things pop. The flowers used are ranuculus, tulips, roses, dusty miller and a purple kale leaf.

Small arrangement

We did this arrangement for some tall bar tables at an event. I loved the mix of the green cymbidium orchids and the begonia leaves and the sea weed type ferns. We often use a grid of horsetail to set the flowers on.
