A Spring Birthday

I did a 50th birthday party a week or so ago. It was a fun one for a few reasons. First, they are just about the nicest people and so great to work with. Second, because the guest of honor loves hot pink and orange. It's so fun to get to work with bold color every now and then. With so many great spring flowers in the flower markets, I was immediately drawn to the tulips! Gorgeous. The ribbon and butterfly details finished them off for a fun party vibe which perfectly suited the guest of honor.

One of the guests liked them so much we are converting them into her December wedding centerpieces! Instead of lemon leaf we'll use cedar and juniper. Where we had tulips we'll use beautiful wintry white amaryllis and roses and black velvet ribbon with a sprig of evergreen as a vase treatment rather than butterflies. With the changes, I think they'll be stunning and totally seasonal.
