Saturday's Bride

This is a picture of the beautiful Kasia who got married on Saturday at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington.   I worked on this wedding with my friend Terry who made this wonderful peony and ranuculus bouquet.

Spring Posey

A bird's eye view of a little spring posy.  Pink tulips, green viburnum from my garden, pink rice flower and a couple of cream roses.

Business lesson

I made this little piece at a meeting of my independent floral designers group (IFDA).  We had a workshop in which each of us got a slip of paper with instructions to make a specific piece within a specific price range.  My instructions were to make an arrangement to be given to a new hire (a man) for his desk, something zen and masculine for the retail cost of $75.  I came up with this - gold cymbidium orchids within a red twig dogwood framework, with some chartreuse moss, stones and a burgandy grass.  It was a fun exercise.

Yard Art + Delivery

Today I delivered 23 little arrangements:  a horsetail background, tropical leaf and orchids and seeded eucalyptus in front on most and the addition of a calla leaf and brunia berries in a few others.    These went to Matisse Restaurant as favors for a thank you luncheon.  On the way I passed a riotous front yard on Fessenden St. with lots of great art.  Such fun to see.  One of the perks of driving around making deliveries.
