Every so often I get to play with some flowers that are considered premium flowers….
First is a weekly with some peonies accented with looped eucalyptus, accented with a single green spider mum and bright orange rose.
Next is another weekly made in a classic style urn from a mix of foliage, babies breathe and a few stems of mini phalaenopsis orchids.
Last be defiantly not least, a stylized minimalist arrangement made from a kiwi vine, bamboo, spray roses and three mini phalaenopsis orchids.
I create a wide range of designs from week to week and last week I had a large order for five sympathy arrangements from one of my clients. Sympathy arrangements can be very difficult to create since they are large and require a lot of details. These are some of my favorite that I have created lately.
There were two wreathes, one in a mix of white and greens and one that was created from yellow and green flowers. I love the textures that are in each of these arrangements; it adds SO much to the overall look. You may not be able to tell by the pictures, but each of these wreathes measured 36 inches in diameter and stood on a 5 ½ foot easel.
The first wreathe is created from Queen Anne’s lace, viburnum, roses, Asiatic lilies, dusty miller, statice and china mums.
Next, this wreathe was created from looped yellow and green leaves, Asiatic lilies, pale yellow stock, viburnum and touches of kangaroo paw.
There were also three large urns. Each of the these urns are VERY large, please see the last two pictures for size reference!
