Holton luncheon

Today, I used the same palette of flowers from last night's event for centerpieces for a luncheon.   I used a half of a monstera leaf cut along the vein for a vase liner and I like that look - you can see the stems through the holes in the leaf, but it is ok in certain instances.  The tips of the leaf stick out of the top of the vase but can become part of the composition. 

I added some dark burgandy in to these arrangements for a little contrast.

Holton Opening party

I have been doing the flowers for the first party of the season at Holton for years.  This year I found some wonderful lime green/yellow/cream cymbidiums and worked with that palette.  In addition to the cymbidiums I used green brunia berries, Jade, Eskimo and Limbo roses, calla leaves, green celosia, green mums and cream anemones.
