Rose ‘Basket’

imageHere is a cute idea for a floral favor at a shower, wedding, corporate event . . . a ‘basket’ made of an aspidistra leaf.  So cute . . . this technique was demonstrated at a WUMFA workshop by Doug Jaeger, Certified Florist.  All kinds of possibilities exist …

Wedding Shower Centerpieces

These centerpieces are ready for a September wedding shower.  The bride is incorporating calla lilies in a deep purple theme for the late fall wedding.  These arrangements are made of artificial callas and filler flowers that were ‘upcycled’ from another event.




Farmers’ market flowers

Arrangements made with flowers purchased at the local farmers’ markets are colorful and inexpensive.  I buy bouquets and take them apart to rearrange.  Sometimes I ask for a handful of one kind of flowers like the Bells of Ireland shown here paired with Queen Anne’s lace from the ‘field.’  A few dollars worth of flowers can go along way.imageimage
