Happy Halloween!

With the budgets he has to work with, and the sheer quantity of flowers that he uses in his arrangements... it's not surprising he can come up with dramatic arrangements... but he definitely has that added wow factor with many of his arrangements that I love.... 

The white church display is from Eva Longoria's wedding in France.  I think I'd stand there for hours wondering how he got all the lilies to balance so perfectly! (And think about how many roses were used for the piles and piles of rose petals on the floor!). Though I love bright and beautiful colour, my preference alot of the time is to white on white or white and green arrangements for that crisp, and in this case angelic, look. 

The use of metallic vases in the colourful table setting I love, and this can be done on a much less expensive scale- and the bright orange roses are some of my favourite... (friends know that pink and orange have a soft spot with me being my wedding colours!)

Spring into Fall...

For some reason whenever the weather starts getting colder, I'm drawn to Spring coloured arrangements, like this one from MarthaStewart.com ... I love how the effect is very antique... right out of a scene from Jane Austen.... 
Now I just need one of my friends to have a peachy pink wedding.... any volunteers!? 

Yellow and green :)

Doing some trial runs for a yellow and green wedding centerpiece concept... quite traditional with a central larger centerpiece with two mini-rose bowls on either side...  My preference is towards the more modern linear designs, but it's nice to do some more traditional lines once in a while....

Playing around with arrangements at home...

A quick fall themed arrangement that I just did for my own house... the picture didn't capture the colour all that well, but the red/orange in the ribbon is matched in the flowers which I really liked.....

This was a dining room table centerpiece that I threw together really quickly... but I love using non-vasey objects as vases... in this case a cast iron candle holder. This can barely be called an arrangement as it was so simple, but I "glammed" it up a little using swarovski crystals on some of the petals... with tealights on the table they add just the right amount of glittery bling!
