For Those Of You Still Wondering…

…what was in this funky bouquet from last week’s post…


…Tony Palmieri AIFD from Datura was kind enough to email me with the answer! The bouquet was created by his associate, Catherine Epright AIFD, using ornamental peppers. If you love this bouquet, you should check out the Datura website and blog. Prepare to be entertained…Tony and Cat think “out of the box” when designing and deliver some of the most artistic designs I’ve seen.

Thanks, Tony! Inspiring work, Cat!

I’m still amazed at how many different looks a tulip can deliver…so many colors…parrots, fringed, double and standard…there’s a lot to love!

Happy Tuesday!

Color Inspiration: Pale Midori Pink

A favorite pale pink ribbon…Midori double-faced satin in ‘Tea Rose’…

Now I know it’s the middle of Autumn and pale pink may be the last color on your mind, but some of us are planning weddings and parties for the Spring and need a dose of pink for inspiration…so, get ready…I’ve got a lot of pink inspiration saved up!
