Fall Party

We had an event last month in fall colors, naturally, this being New England and all! I love when the client gives me free rein - they usually get the best stuff out of me!

Since this was for our local public library, I wanted to wrap book pages around the vases, but I just couldn't bring myself to tear up a book! Trust me, I have tons of books I'm sure I'm never going to read again, but it just somehow seems wrong to trash something still readable. Now if I had a book that was falling apart or missing pages that would be another story.

Any how, found this great black and white printed paper that had a text-like design on it. Or maybe it's in some fabulously exotic foreign alphabet! Either way, it looked amazing wrapped around the cylinders and accented with ribbon.

I used grapevine balls as the support for the flowers which gave the arrangements a rustic-modern touch while being really functional structure-wise. I love finding a different way of using something!

This is so true. I always do my best work when just working to a minimal brief where the client has only specified a colour or style rather than a detailed list of requirements.
