Saturated color!

I was talking with a bride today about saturated color. THIS is what I mean by saturated color... Deep, bright, contrasting and complimentary all at the same time!

Baby pink

Last spring I was honored to do flowers for a little girl baby shower. The colors were pink and white, and the mommy provided these adorable containers. She wasn't sure what flowers she wanted, but she did know she liked lilies and pink. Here are a few shots of what I came up with...

Superbowl Sunday

Well, it's official, the cheeseheads are the champions. Aaron Rodgers gets his championship 'belt' after all. What a great game! I have to admit that our household was a little salty that our Patriots weren't at the big dance. Those darn New York teams keep catchin' us snoozing when it really counts... Anyway, somehow I promise to bring this post back around to flowers. Maybe. ;) Okay, in honor of the Packers taking it all, I suppose I'll post some pics of pretty green flowers. Good job Packers! I was totally rooting for you in between my naps and snacks...

This bouquet sported 'Green goddess' roses, green cymbidium orchids, Bells of Ireland, green hermit mums, even a few hosta blooms and a living stock and lotus bamboo.
Nothing like a big poof of green hydrangea!

I call this boutonniere 'just how funky fresh can I get with it?'

Looking forward to Spring!

I made this collection last year about this time for a bridal show. The blue sky and sunshine today inspired me to show it to you. It was a springy mix of spray roses, daffodils, calla lilies, gerbera daisies, orchids, stock and lily grass. Is it spring yet?
