Durable- Robust Color


Sometimes we overlook everyday flowers for Special Event work...

Durable- Robust Color and Textural excitement are key to attracting attention...
and bringing two complimentary colors together for a topiary style
event piece doesn't have to 'break the bank'
 I show how to create this cost
effective- Stylish and Colorful topiary style arrangement out of Alstroemeria
and Hypericum.

Fashioned in an elegant gold tone container from Accent Decor... these
"workhorse" flowers... make an eye catching event centerpiece that will attract everyone's attention... 


P.S. You can take any Flower to a Special Event... WOW!

Fun way to mix up food and flowers...

placed a small piece of flower foam into the pepper...

and then just added flowers...

It's a fun way to mix up food and flowers...

2 Lips... get it... kiss-kiss!!!


Tulips are a Natural for Valentine's Day...
2 Lips... get it... kiss-kiss!!!

And Tulips on the Bulb are unusual and a bonus gift...

Arranged in a hand bouquet style... bound with a bit of craft wire...
they stand on their own... and can be displayed on a tray or in a shallow
 pan of water... for longer life...

Once the tulips have bloomed... you can plant the bulbs... and they'll
come up the following year... (and there after)...

It's a fun way to celebrate Valentine's Day...

Also check out the "100's" of different tulip varieties that Sun Valley
grows... (they have the Tulips on the bulb too)... 



P.S. Tulips on the Bulb... Another way to say "I love you" with Flowers!
