From  Cheryl of Sunflower Creative Floral – “I believe that any great table starts with a centerpiece and a vintage champagne bucket with lush blossoms seemed just right.

It’s funny how flowers so quickly become a description of ourselves. My love of all things ‘natural’ quickly showed up as I framed in the arrangement with seeded eucalyptus.”

“Soft, billowy hydrangea petals always spell romance for me, so I started there and added some passion with bold, red dahlias. Black scabiosa gives a little dance and sway above the other blossoms, a bit of kale and lavender hyacinth introduced a touch of quirky sweetness, and then a bit more texture from the leucadendron plumosum and viburnum berries for delicious contrast.”
