Amaryllis Arrangements: Done!

I posted about the prep for these amaryllis arrangements and this is about building them: first I had to choose a container.
Then started with the pepperberry as a base to give it some structure.
Then started adding greenery, leaves and the flowers,
filling them in and making them look plentiful.
But I wasn't happy with the tall vase so switched to a fishbowl to give it a different shape, so this was the prototype.
But the arrangements were going on round tables, so they had to look nice all around, so back to work:
and then there were nine!
Tomoko from the pastry kitchen tied the bows so beautifully since she used to work for Jacques Torres!
Then packaging: foam crates and bubble wrap.
And they made it to the event just fine.
It was a satisfying night and I walked down Fifth Avenue smiling.
