Anyone who knows me, knows I could write a blog for weeks about my love of flowers and how they are at the core of so much of my design work and my personal life... I wanted to share a few photos I snapped, of my use of flowers to decorate place settings.
Even one bloom placed in a dish can be a wow at the table. What I love about incorporating flowers in place settings is, it’s easy, you don’t need many and I often use leftover flowers, that perhaps have broken stems or are a little wilted.
Of course with my rose garden in California, I pretty much have 24/7 roses at my fingertips… lucky me. But, I’m a big fan of the not so popular carnations, especially for this implementation, as they come in so many colors and their heads sit very properly in a dish or table. And then sometimes, I like to just lay tulips on the table, if they are on their last legs and cant stand up anymore…
I have often used complete leftover rose petals to decorate buffet style bowls… I love nothing more than to use every last scrap of beauty, until there is nothing left… Satisfying beauty.
