Bombs Away!

Ok folks, so remember those 5000 stems of pink flowers? Well here's where they went. L'Oreal threw Viktor & Rolf a birthday bash celebrating their perfume Flowerbomb on Wednesday night. We covered a MASSIVE sculpture of stacked perfume bottles in roses, carnations, stock and gerbera daisies. Every flower was water-picked. Oy! It took 14 looong hours to put together and a mere hour to take down. I totally over bought on carnations. It was really hard to figure out how much to buy. I dreaded getting caught short. Oh well. So, yesterday I made up little carnation bouquets and handed them out to people on Court Street. Monday I will drop some at the senior center. I am like the flower Santa. It was really an over the top experience. I hear the party was the bomb!
I especially loved the flowers in the fireplace. We filled in three of them. I was sad to destroy it!

Phenomenal! But I do so hate planning out those geometric designs, all that math to calculate the stemmage, and you did mixed flowers - woo!

I'm so glad you posted a close-up so we can see all the texture! It's all stunning, but the fireplace is particularly fabulous.

Hi Denise,
I shot a wedding with you back in 2007. Just found your blog and gotta say, your work is still as stunning as ever. LOVE the fireplaces and all those shades of pink. I'm a big fan of Viktor and Rolf, so it's a treat to see an inside peek.
