and more holiday arrangements

For one of my favourite people and her mom (who is also one of my favourite people), I made this Christmas Day centerpiece. I tried to go modern (to match the style of these wonderful women) but classic, using parrot tulips (i have a new found love for parrot tulips), mixed with yellow pincushion, a white mum, a stem of green orchid, and some cool red berries I found. I wanted each side to be different, so it was a surprise any which way you look at it. I found a nice matte black bowl at Homesense, to be used even after the flowers disappear!

more christmas arrangements

For our dear family friend, Pauline, who has impeccable classic taste, I made this traditional holiday arrangement, using red roses, but adding parrot tulips help add a funky flair!
