Out With the Old, In With the New

In the 80’s and 90’s we were designing floral arrangements with silks and maybe some real elements of woods, greens and natural things. It was the thing to do! It is now time to retire old flower arrangements to the garbage!!!

Have a peaceful transition of parting with those dust craving brass containers! Have you seen the blue roses and pink arrangements that still linger in your friend’s homes on their coffee or dining room tables; dust ridden, old flowers with frayed edges?! Let’s get ready, it’s fun– we can call it the old silk flower hunt! I will come help you find them and dispose of them! Seriously – it is liberating fun!!!!  Out with the old!

It is now 2010, where we design homes we are using fresh flowers to impact your surroundings. Whether your home is for sale or just want that model home atmosphere, try using fresh flowers! One of my favorite looks is to purchase about 15 flowers in one solid color, cut the stems exactly the same size from the bottom of the flower to the bottom of the stem. Put in a square or round vase and display them tightly inside the vase, hugging the top edge of glass – as the stem takes up water the flower will expand to fill up the edge of vase – creating the senses of smell, sight AND touch! This look will NOT be disappoint!

For sources where you can buy flowers at wholesale (and even great retail prices) that will satisfy all the senses of your spirit!!
