For the Home
Last week I had the opportunity to design flowers for a client's home. This has been a goal of mine for some time and I was thrilled to get the chance. Now we all love wedding flowers with their pomp and glory but as a designer I'm not gonna lie - it's one thing to create a little masterpiece but to then face the task of having to recreate it - oh, say 20 times...well, it can become a bit draining to say the least. It was a nice change of pace to think about placement, lighting and interior design. I especially yearned to design cleaner and more modern flowers. What I took away from the experience was when designing interior flowers, the vase consideration is just if not more important than the flower choice. What a treat to wake to a nice arrangement by your bedside. I do hope I get more opportunities like this in the future. I was in heaven.
