I had the honor of creating more floral arrangements for a Sandpipers function last week. This time it was for a social (rather than a fundraising) event for the membership – we hosted a cupcakes and champagne party at a local bakery, to celebrate Valentines day early.
It was a blast! I snapped up all kinds of pink, peach, burgundy and magenta flowers, not sure exactly how they would all gel, and there is some great stuff still sitting in my cart- like astrantia- that I didn’t end up using, because it didn’t work texturally with the other stuff in the end. I had fun with the mostly analogous colors, and I am in love with those simple, sleek hot coral-y pink tulips – I think they’re my favorite thing I bought!
Pics of the arrangements, followed by some detail shots from the event are below:
OK, this is the kind of New Year’s resolution that a person could really stick to!
And you know what goes really well with cupcakes???
Here are the arrangements in their cupcake shop habitat:
And the post party wreckage ; )
Happy V day to all!
