More pictures from the wedding. The venue was the French Embassy, close to Georgetown. The space is light and airy and showcased the beautiful linens and the flowers nicely. We made arrangements in large glass squares for the majority of the tables using blue hydrangea, apricot Cumbia roses, Majolica ivory spray roses, Dusty Miller greens and Jaguar Mokara orange orchids. For 6 of the tables we used our large trumpet vases to hold "trees" of leafed out curly willow. We started the curly willow 2 months ago and have coaxed it along. Under the trees we sat 3 glass cones with smaller versions of the other arrangements. We also tucked fresh cut herbs into these pieces. The bride's family owns an herb farm in Virginia and supplied pounds of fresh cut herbs for our use.

This past week was graduation at Holton. It was the hottest week - 102 on graduation day and it was a real test for the staying power of flowers. We used Quick Dip, the new foam from Oasis - Maxi Life, and Crowning Glory spray and I am happy to say everything held up thru the day and looked pretty good; even the pieces in the direct sun. This year the girls carried peach Versilia roses which were quite beautiful and looked good with every skin color according to the photographer. The bridge decorators (we really should change that designation to the campus decorators now) used a rose that was a peachy yellow called Finesse in their pieces as well as beautiful delphinium and cream lilies. The decorations were the among the nicest ever and the installation went smoothly thanks to the careful planning of the chairs.
