I was asked to design a centerpiece for the Junior League’s Starry Night Gala last month. Among the requirements - that the piece be composed of one single color and that I used a glass vase no more than 6” high. Not overly inspiring to say the least!
Less than a week before the piece was due, I was still debating the colors. Green for Spring? Too boring. Blue for the starry night theme? Not many blue flower varieties this time of year. Hmmm. Then inspiration quite literally dropped out of the sky and arrived on my doormat! A beautiful wedding invitation from friends in CA inviting us to their June wedding in Sonoma.
Gorgeous right? And so the process began…the flowers would have to be pink. Silver to play up the elegance of the letterpress. Rural, meadow flowers and herbs to complement the location. Roses to add sophistication…
Have you ever seen that section of Bride & Bloom where different designers put together a table from the same color scheme and theme?
Now I’m dying to see what the Sonoma floral designer comes up with!
