Sage flowers

Winter sparkle


Trio of vase arrangements- tall, medium, and tiny, for a surprise birthday party last weekend.

Extra points to my husband for:

a. taking photos well after dark

b. suave and stealthy delivery.  The birthday girl was ice skating at market square, right next door to surprise party HQ at the Tir Nan Og-- and a station wagon full of balloons and flowers can be a little conspicuous.

A lovely night out was had by all.  Fireplace helps. Sparkly cider helps.  Big laughs and helium-voice serenades with great friends help. Best of all, the birthday girl didn't suspect a thing. Total surprise!

M.O. for the evening was silver and white.   I busted out the kryolan and silvered up three different vases, then filled them with imported dusty miller and eucalyptus and  Ontario-grown ivy, snaps, gerbera daisy, and lisianthus.  I wasn't planning on including lisianthus in these arrangements, but when I saw them on the flower truck, those little purple dots screamed 'buy me!'

I love grouping a few monobotanic/monochromatic arrangements in different sizes.  Can't wait to try this out on a larger scale for a wedding or banquet!    Unity without matchy-matchiness makes my heart sing.


PS. Happy birthday, Kelti!
