Serious Farmers Market Flowers From Cebolla Dallas

I love fruits and veggies in florals – they’re usually done as subtle accents with the flowers taking center stage, and they’re usually done with certain very specific fruits and veggies – citrus fruits and artichokes are especially popular.  Here’s a very cool twist – in these arrangements by Cebolla Fine Flowers of Dallas, fruits and veggies I’ve never before seen in florals are used – hardier things like onions, cauliflower, poblano peppers and banannas alongside glam flowers like phalaenopsis orchids and roses.  The fruits and veggies also very much take center stage, with the flowers in a supporting role.  And I love it!

This one combines white cauliflower and white onions nestled among red roses and white phalaenopsis

And here we have poblano peppers, tomatillos, cardoon, limes, green cymbidiums, hypericum, green hydrangea, and green roses:

This is my personal favorite (probably because of the tangerines!) and also one of the best examples I’ve seen lately of a container making an arrangement a slam dunk.  It’s comprised of tangerines, pink spray roses, dusty miller, orange habenero peppers.

And a close second favorite – all yellow-ey goodness! Miniature bananas, lemons, yellow cymbidiums, yellow garden roses and daffodils.

Pink Overalls - Wow. Those photos made my jaw drop! The arrangements and selections are gorgeous. I especially like the spunky little habeneros. And you are so right about that container. I’ll be thinking about these combinations for days. Thanks for the post.

janet - I love the green arrangement! I bet the bananas in the yellow arrangement made the flowers wilt faster.
