This hot babe was a "congrats on your awesome new show" arrangement. Coral Charm peonies set off by fluffy tufts of astilbe, ranunculus and purple hued nine bark. And that vase! Such a party monster.
My personal favorite (so far)
From the moodiness of the color palette, to the mix of humble flowers, to herbs to luxuriant and the dangerous, this is what I strive for when left to my own devices. It was my first time working with sarracenia (my namesake) and I'm just so, so happy with it. She's a total flirt.
Late Summer Opulence
This happy harvest was the stunning centerpiece for an event. The gilded mercury glass compote was a fun addition.
This was my first official Scores of Hellebores arrangement. It was the first time I felt free to do what I wanted and to this day I still love the way it turned out. The recipient was so surprised and happy that she cried. That sealed the deal for me. Not so much the crying, but the joy.
I love marigolds in the garden, french and otherwise. Thought I'd bring some indoors with dill and plumosa fern.
This dramatic dream gal can be glimpsed briefly in a Chelsea for Netflix promo. Two seconds of only a piece of it, but I'll take it.
Tall glass of water
This simple arrangement is one of my all time favorites. Kangaroo paw, artichoke and silver dollar plant.
Baby, it's your birthday!
Made six of these for a little girl's first birthday. They were a lot of fun and I was honored to have even a small part in such an important day for a super cool young family.
Crowns for queens
This was for a collaborative photo shoot between the fabulous and fun lifestyle blog I Echo Park, Eva Franco Boutique and moi. It was an amazing day and I'll update the site with better photos once they're published.
The angled ring of amaryllis, ranunculus, astilbe, allium and leucadendron reminds me of the planet.
We have a winner!
You deserve a trophy...filled with dahlias, gloriosa lilies and amaranth.
How do you like them apples?
You should have read that in a Boston accent.
I admit it. I'm a flower snob. I used to haaaaate "common" flowers, but have come to realize there are no bad flowers, just bad florists. Carnations were a top offender because they remind me of middle school and funerals. Thankfully they are coming back into fashion and appreciated for their form, instead of just mashing them into funeral wreaths and teddy bears. Not that those are bad things, but they haven't been allowed to just be carnations in decades.
Glad I stopped being such a jerk because they smell amazing.
Tulips, callas and orchids in a modern geometric black vase worthy of a RuPaul's Drag Race challenge
I call her Strangè because she stinks so good.
This sexy, dirty bouquet isn't afraid to own it. All of it. Much like Grace Jones and her character in the movie Boomerang. The skunky yet heady aroma of the frittilaria is intoxicating. For the bold.
