Today's the big reveal- The finished centerpiece from yesterday's anatomy of a bouquet post. With the summer nights waning and fall nudging its way into our consciousness I wanted to create an arrangement that symbolized this in-between season. I think this bouquet does the trick.
My original thought when creating this centerpiece was to keep it monochromatic with all pink and red blooms, but when I saw the way the Wisteria vine and Queen Ann's Lace offset the flowers I couldn't help but get inspired by the complimentary colors. The mix of tame and wild flora create a unique balance that's hard to resist. The vivid hues and organic composition make this my favorite design to date.
Here are a few closer-up shots:
My bedroom was brightened by these flowers for over a week. A kiss goodnight each evening, and a smile in the morning. - b.
