French Embassy event

Tonight we did the flowers for a Moet champagne event at the French Embassy.  We made centerpieces and 2 unusual registration table pieces.  We used Alba cymbidium orchids, Vendela roses, white hydrangeas and silver artesmia foliage.  The registration pieces were made from peeled grapevine roots and wired and hanging white dendrobium orchids.

We are going to a Hukilau

When I was in elementary school we had a cherry blossom festival each spring.  For some reason one year we did the hula to the song "We are going to a Hukilau".  Tonight I was reminded of all this as I set up the flowers for a luau themed sweet 16.  Here are the photos.  I used lots of green cymbidium, Free Spirit orange roses, green mums, gold cymbidium, large and small philodendrom leaves, green anthirium, pinky yellow Dahlias, hanging and upright Heleconia, lotus pods, safflower, Mambo sprays and black callas.  It all worked out and I was singing that d@#m song the whole time...
