Yesterday was the annual open house at my wholesaler - Potomac Floral. I entered the competition and was determined to display a simple piece with no styling. I love to style tables but thought that this piece could stand on its own without a lot of frou frou and votives and other stuff. I love this piece - worked on weaving the varigated lirope for a few hours and draped the white phals over the dome. I think it was a strong piece and was very happy with it. As usual, there were people who loved it and people who did not - that is always the risk of these shows. But this competition helped me push this type of design a little further down the road.
