Fresh from the Market

We have the Cirque du Noir fundraiser for the Worcester County Food Bank this weekend, and I got a little excited and bought every variation on black flowers in the market that I could find!

The various tones and shades of "black" in flowers are so interesting - from deep eggplant-y colors seen in these black mini callas and dendrobium orchids...

...to the burgundy tones as in the cotinus foliage here. Don't you just love our black ostrich plumes?! OK, not a flower, but fun to work with just the same.

I also couldn't resist these black peppers called "Orna-mental"!

We have a couple orders for floral accouterments to go with clients' Cirque du Noir costumes. Can't wait to show you all how those come out! And we're happy to accessorize anyone else who plans on going to the shindig. :-)

We do have flowers in other colors besides black!
