This is what is on my table now. An antique tool box that I filled with assorted greenery. You would never know that I was a floral designer by looking at this, would you? I should be ashamed, but it's more being lazy than anything else. I love the tool box and it's done it's job very well. I also love the color green. Not my favorite, but I do love the freshness it brings to a room.
My table seats 10 very comfortably, so the arrangement needs to be BIG.
As I searched, this is what I found. I loved it. I always enjoyed working with fruits and veggies along side of blooms. The texture they add and the color is unbelievable. I thought this would work just fine. It was lower and longer, but the colors were wonderful and I love the fruits and veggies.
Just look at those reds!! Artichokes and pomagrantes, apples and grapes.
Deep and rich, with ambers and greens. Okra and fall leaves with lovely blooms.
OK, this was not what I thought it would be. I still love the arrangement, but it ended up being waaaaaaaay to small for my table. I have no idea what I was thinking, I guess I wasn't really thinking at all.
This lovely arrangement ended up not on my dining room table, but is perfect for my kitchen table. All was not lost afterall.
I now don't leave the house without measurements, just in case. I did however come out the winner on this. I not only have a beautiful arrangement for my kitchen table, I still get to shop for one for the dining room. My motto now is to be prepared, because even tho you may not think you need something, you just never know. I will let you know what I come up with: to be continued.....
