Yellow black and white tabletop inspiration

Yellow is such a bright and fresh color.  In this table top, we took lemon yellow and gave it a modern twist with accents of silver and black. White and yellow balls of carnations and mums rest atop vases and lucite squares trimmed with silver sequins. Graceful arches of calla lilies make a fabulous counterpoint. […]

Bells of Ireland Bouquet

Green is the quintessential color of spring. Bells of Ireland are usually revered for their long curved stalks, but I’m absolutely smitten with their fluffy tips. The green theme is further accentuated by cymbidium orchids. Orange cherry brandy roses play a fabulous counterpart and intensifies the colors. I just swoon at the sight of their […]

It’s that time of year when peonies are in full bloom, and we couldn’t be more excited. Their delicate scent, softness, and infinite amount of petals all send my heart a flutter. The season only last for a few weeks out of the year, and we try to take full advantage of these glorious beauties. […]

Deep Purple Bouquet

A bouquet like this makes me wish I had a garden with darling little rows of cabbages and flowers flourishing effortlessly. I’ve always been jealous of places that have lilac growing wild and those with sprawling front yard flora. Until I find that secret fertilizer, I’ll just stick to cut flowers. Fuchsia orchids, eye-popping anemones, burgundy […]
