Dinner Party

Tonight I did some arrangements for a dinner party.  The house is very serene and calm with a cream and apricot palette and the flowers were to reflect that spirit.  I used cream hydrangeas,  tan spider mums, Vendela, Versilia and Cinnamon roses, pale yellow tulips, yellow hypericum, sword and baker fern and varigated pittosporum in an antiqued metal container.  For the entry piece I added some deeper color flowers and a little blue eucalyptus.

Show with Danica

This weekend I went up to Rochester NY to participate in a show with my friend Danica.  She is a photographer with a studio in an old fruit canning factory overlooking the railroad tracks.

Last March we had some conversations about this show - I was thinking about how to combine weaving in my floral work and she was weaving images in her photography.

We picked a date and last weekend made it happen.  I recreated the woven dome and this time used orange mokara orchids to showcase.  The other photo shows a little woven midolino arch that sits between two white bubble vases from IKEA.  I put orange callas in that piece and loved the way they followed the arc.
