A February luncheon at a historic German restaurant calls for elegant yet natural elements. Gerbera daisies were the focal point surrounded by thistle, spray roses, and Green Trick dianthus. Natural twig balls with a winter white color palette, a frame of bear grass and some variegated greens complete the design.
The old, historic section of Nice, France, has a wonderful flower and produce market. I always learn something new when I visit floral shops, markets, and growers. Many of the flowers offered at this market are grown locally in neighboring cities and towns in France. For ten euros, I was able to purchase a huge bouquet of roses and lisianthus. Tres jolie!
I also noticed the straw/raffia bouquet holder used by many of the vendors. It was wired with a handle to easily arrange the flowers. Of course, I brought one home.
Lavender roses were the star of these centerpieces for a baby shower. The mom and dad opted to be surprised (no gender reveal) so we did not use the pink, blue, yellow pastel theme for this fun event. Since the mom loves birds, we added a bird and nest to each arrangement . . . Babe orange spray roses, dianthus Green Trick, purple statice and a small daisy like aster completed the design. Hydrangea and sedum were added from the garden for contrast.
The color theme for this wedding was purple/marsala accented by lime green and creamy white. We used deep purple calla lilies, Vendela roses, jade green roses, lavender freesia and wax flower to create these bouquets.

Corsages and boutonnieres are tailored to the event and especially designed for the wedding party members who will be wearing them. These designs by Rose and Twig incorporate spray roses, scabiosa buds, ranunculus, calla lilies, and wax flowers … just a few of the many types of flowers that might be used.
