Every once in a while, it's good to trod down the path less taken ... just to see where it takes you! It's always a bit of a fun little surprise!
We always jump at the chance to flex our creative muscles and design up some funky, fresh, flower arrangements for things like book launch parties, corporate events, tours, fundraisers and the like ... especially when we're given carte blanche.
So ... where to start? Well, in Niagara, we go to the market, of course!!
We'll return to the studio with our mitts chock full of raw 'in season' ingredients like okra, spring onions, jalapeno peppers, swiss chard, potatoes and raddishes ... even eggplant, tomatoes, nectarines and cucumbers have made guest appearances! Then, we proceed to marry our 'foodie finds' with flowers ... as we're wont to do.
The results usually garner lots of attention and conversation over the dinner table ... we've received many, many comments on these particular designs:
We hope you enjoyed a look at the quirky side of things
Although most of these designs wouldn't 'work' in a wedding scenario, it's always possible to incorporate some different and unique elements into our floral designs ... not to much how much fun we have doing it and how much your guests will talk about them!
P.S. > Check out Helen + Steven's wedding at Queen's Landing for how we incorporated pomegranates in their centrepieces!
