^V^ Day – Flowers, Cupcakes and Champagne

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!
