So I am thinking about orange these days as I design the flowers for a wedding in April. What I really liked was putting some orange mokara orchids, Goldy gerber minis and gold mini cymbidiums in a saturated turquoise vase. It is a great combination.

Attack of the Giant Philodendren

Yesterday I got 3 giant (100 cm) philodendren leaves for a wedding sample. The bride is going to have 4 25 foot tables for family style seating and we will have 3 vases with the leaves on 2 tables and the 2 other tables will have 2 vases. I put japanese fishing floats in the vases to raise the leaves up a bit. The leaves will form a sort of umbrella over parts of the table. I am experimenting with things to put on the table, just votives or leaves and flowers and votives - this is a work in progress but I really like these leaves.
