What type of holiday floral arrangement do you make for the dining room table of one of the most talented design gurus, with the most impeccable taste, that you know? Something modern and simple, but a bit funky too, I decided. I created this out of red winter berries, using the architecture of the tree branches as the main focal point, set in a bed of green reindeer moss, in a silver vase with clean modern lines.

A co-worker of mine recently asked me to do up a housewarming arrangement for her friend. I wondered to myself, what seems warm and cozy, but also interesting and spunky to match the fresh feelings of moving in to a new place? I surprised myself with a crazy concoction of orange mokara spray orchids and roses, with white hydrangea and pink cymbidian orchids. The results are above...what do you think? Note: to make hydrangeas last, you have to cut them, put them in boiling water for 30 seconds, then immediately plunk them in cold water before placing them into the arrangement. Believe me, I learned this lesson the hard way! They sure are beautiful flowers but quite high maintenance. They are "the princesses" of all flowers!

I made this one for my good friend Rebecca's birthday. She's such a sunny, happy person, and she loooves gardens, so I wanted to make her a cheerful arrangement in a vase that she didn't have to throw out when the flowers wither away...
There's something so deliciously eye candy-ish about ranunculus. It evokes the same feeling in me as Cinnabon. It's expensive here in Ontario - too bad we don't live in Israel, where apparently it grows in fields and is super cheap when in season! I'll be going to Israel next summer, so I'll be sure to pick up a bundle and enjoy paying a cheap but pretty penny for it!
