Wax flowers

Today I made a sample for a tall arrangement.  The bride originally wanted a puff of babies breath but I used a colorful wax flower instead and love the result...simple but effective.

Samples for an August wedding

These pieces are on the work table tonight - variations on a theme.  The bride loves Amnesia roses but today they came in a very tan color instead of the silver we were expecting.   I made some samples with them but also bought some lavender Ocean Song roses to use in alternate samples as well.  Purple spider mums, white astrancia, lavender spray roses, silvery lamb's ears and pink wax were all part of the testing of ideas.

Alix and David

Alix and David got married last Sat at the Whittemore House at Dupont Circle.  We worked with a blush, peach and pink color scheme and every piece was so pretty and soft.  I had lovely peonies, wonderful Emely roses and sunset colored calla lilies as the basics and added on to that palette with other complementary colors.  Everything was so pretty.

Dinner party at the Whittemore House

Today we made arrangements for a dinner meeting of doctors at the WNDC/Whittemore House in DC.  They requested predominantly orange arrangements with touches of red.  We complied and  I think came up with a nice color story for them.  What brought it all together for me was the burgandy agonis foliage.  In addition, we used fabulous local dahlias and great tropicals to make these pieces.

Niamh's bouquet

Forgot to post this quick full on picture of the bouquet I made for Niamh.  Love the color palette on this one.  I used incredible garden roses in pinks and blush with gold and cream accents.
