Although I was planning on using mistletoe for my next project, another opportunity came up to make table arrangements for a client's event. So, I visited the space to get some inspiration and then it was back to the flower market for more research...
I wanted to find just the right greens.
And some kind of texture, maybe berries or something, hmmm...what are these...?
Some branches would also be good
and the room has a lot of gold in it too.
I really didn't know what these were!
But was told these were wild cucumber. Not quite right for this, but amusing nonetheless.
I had to resist the phalaenopsis orchids I usually get
even though the pink hues were amazing but I needed a holiday theme instead.
And no flowering kale for me that day
no poppies either
and I had to tear my eyes away from the peonies and roses
because I was here for the deep red amaryillis
and chose some sturdier evergreen branches and these leaves (mental note: need floral i.d. guide for sure)
and some beautiful pepperberry. I got enough for 9 arrangements and hauled it all back to the office...more to come in Part 2!
