I admit that I don't know very much about flowers in general. I can only name the most common plants or my favorite flowers. Although I am no florist, I still love putting together beautiful, fresh arrangements. I recently visited a wholesale flower shop for the first time and was completely overwhelmed, not to mention, half frozen from shopping in enormous refrigerated rooms. Since I am doing the centerpieces for my best friend's wedding the end of the month, I figured I would put something together for a trial run.
I really liked the overall look of the arrangement. I love the funky appeal added by the curly willow and hanging amaranthus. This is just one of the many designs I am using but I'm still working on some other ideas.
