BRIDAL SHOW... at the Washington Club, Washington, CT

Bright colors are very popular this season. A combination
of hot pink, apricot and orange with the textures of tulips and roses is very "cutting edge". Here the flowers are loosely arranged in four 4" glass cubes with swirls of soft stem green wire inside the container... placed .at the base of the tall arrangement (which was created atop a rectangular glass container 4" x 4" x 24". (see next photo)

Using the same color scheme with tall flowers to create a dramatic centerpiece atop the tall glass containers ..flowers .included hot pink peonies, orange "Free Spirit" roses, pink hydrangeas, white French
tulips and white dendrobium orchids. The matching spring green wire swirled inside the tall clear glass container. Every bride I talked to at the show was impressed with this color scheme. Note the white damask table cloth (Party Rental Ltd.)

he Bridal bouquet featured the same colors: including hot pink peonies, Free Spirit roses, and deep pink mini calla lilies....The natural stems were hand tied and wrapped with a ribbon matching the rose.

In contrast to my above colorful table, my second table featured quiet colors: spring green and white. The floor length table cloth was a "celery" colored bengaline fabric and the table setting featured square white plates, spring green wine glasses and white linen napkins (Party Rental Ltd) decorated with a wired green ribbon and one stem of
green viburnum. The centerpiece was created in a clear glass container 8" in diameter, lined with a wide thai leaf...with lime slices placed between the leaf and the interior of the glass bowl. The white flowers included imported white hydrangeas and mini white calla lilies. It was a very sophisticated look.
