Sunny dinner party

Last night there was a dinner party outside on a pool deck.   I did the flowers in a nice sunny yellow with refreshing greens and grey accents to cool things off visually during this hot spell in Washington.

Breakfast at St. Albans

This past spring I made an arrangement for a breakfast at the headmaster's home.  Peaches and creams were the colors and I made a pretty piece for the event.  Ranuculus, roses, cream hydrangea, my favorite varigated pittosporum and a touch of grey brunia to add a little sophistication.

Kissing ball

I had a wedding last week and one of the samples I made for the flower girl to carry was this moss ball covered with birch bark flowers attached with pearl pins.  

Summer bouquet

Sometimes it is fun to just plunk some stems in a vase and enjoy a bright bouquet.  This is what I did yesterday and delivered it to a newly married couple.
