Flower Power

While I was working to overcome the setbacks and challenges in my “challenge-within-challenge” quilt, I thought of something that had cheered me up — FLOWERS! Here are pictures of some floral arrangements I had done for my brother’s wedding reception last year.

The total height of these pedestal floral arrangements is about 36 inches! I thought they were imposingly beautiful – and that was the effect I was going after. I ended up making four of these because that was all the rental place had. They were placed at the eye-catching tables scattered at four different corners to wow the guests as they entered the reception room.

At the house:

The actual event:

These were from the wedding ceremony itself, done by another lady. I “consolidated” and “re-arranged” after we took them home from the church. Can you believe I had to break out my 24″ punch bowl to fit all these flowers?

I am still trying to hunt down pictures of the other floral arrangements. I will post them later when I do. Who can subdue the power of flower? I love working with fresh flowers for floral arrangements except I don’t like the accompanying mess. You can imagine the mess in the aftermath of making those four huge pedestal display, seven regular arrangements to fit in wine buckets, and another wide-spreading display for the head table — I was fortunate, my Dad cleaned it all up for me!!! I was super-thankful!

Have a wonderfully flowery day, everyone! Till next time!
