Peacock Feathers

I'm loving peacock feathers lately so I created some boutonnieres with them and I think it adds such great texture, iridescence and color to the flowers.

This one is pairs the feather with a white anemone, in season now, a golden birch twig and a butterscotch ribbon.

In this version I also included a pink tulip and changed out the ribbon for a regal purple. Nothing matches but everything coordinates perfectly.

The feathers are also amazing in bouquets, centerpieces, tucked into napkins - the possibilities are endless.

Blast from the Past

One of the fun things about being a floral designer for events is seeing the beautiful photos that the photographers have captured. Often the galleries aren't available for weeks or months as fine tuning happens to make everything perfect. Today I received some images that Robert and Kathleen Photographers captured of a fall wedding we did at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills and they brought me back to the fun of working with Valerie and Chris - a really great couple. Here are a few of their incredible images from that autumn day.

Launching Our New Blog!

I'm so excited to be posting my very first blog entry. I hope you will comment on what your read and see here often.

To kick things off, I wanted to share two photos of the arrangements I created for the New Britain Museum of American Art's dinner this past weekend. I wanted the arrangements to capture the spirit of the Valentine's Day weekend while providing a reminder that spring is right around the corner (I hope!). -Christine
