Wowza! Couldn't pass up these Pretty Pink Protea and Kangaroo Paws (yellow).  The assignment was to send well wishes to a U of M Student from her colleagues at the Museum of Art Creative Writing Dept.  Bright colors say spring is on its way and everything is going to get better soon don't you think.

These were particularly fun to design.  There is black river rock in the bottom of each square vase giving it a great foundation to work in.  We featured the Ballet rose, garnet dahlia, antique hydrangea, and blue eryngium.  Once we arrived at the Museum we were able to put their "belts" on, check it out!





They are held together by a couple buttons and embroidery thread.

This is our arrangement designed for the appetizer table,  we love the curly willow tips twisted through the inside of the large vase.

It featured the ballet roses, garnet dahlia, antique hydrangea, eryngium, kale blooms and italian ruscus.



The Art Museum at the University of Michigan is absolutely pristine.  It was a great opportunity to design for such a large open space already filled with gorgeous works of art.



Yum!

On January 13th The University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) hosts Carole Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate of Great Britain for their Zell Visiting Writer Series. We had the opportunity to create a unique design with the flowers for this event. Taking influence from the event invitation and poster, we were able to recreate the look and feel of complex textures, industrial supply and distinguished softness.
