Valentine's Day is today

Pictures of some of the pieces we delivered today - we were all over the metro area but luckily it is a beautiful day today - 65 degrees - such a gift in the middle of February.

The first piece is for our client Claire.  We did the flowers for Claire's wedding to Bob about 3 years ago.  Claire was a little leery of American florists and Bob made the initial contact.  We won her over with her wedding flowers and have been delivering arrangements to them ever since.  For her Valentine's arrangement we used Charlotte and Black Beauty sweetheart roses (I love Black Beauties - they look like velvet and are a great dark wine color).  We added red ranuculus, red tulips, dark purple callas, lirope grass and some varigated ti leaves.

The second piece was a lower budget arrangement with some of the same flowers and some alstromeria added.   I added a twist of red wire around the vase and shaped a little heart - I like how it looks like a child's sketch.  It adds a touch of the holiday without resorting to some of the more typical holiday add-ons.

The last arrangement is a pave arrangement made from Charlotte roses and galax leaves.
