Reception Design 1

Reception Design 1: Hat Trick

If Salvador Dali had designed a flower... it would have been the ranunculus.

Using either hat boxes or cylinder vases covered in flocked wall paper we will create table designs that have a lot of texture, convey a rich romantic feeling with a lush collar of red ranunculus, and finish off with an exotic flourish of white cymbidium orchids on top. These cymbidium orchids will echo the feeling of Danielle's bouquet and will create a subtle, but definitive tie between the ceremony and reception. The multiple layers will lend itself well to an architectural feel.

The lack of greens anywhere will really cause the arrangements to pop against the lush lawn of the arboretum.

alternations might include: Reversing the designs and using white ranunculus on the bottom and burgundy cymbidiums on the top of 1/2 of the arrangements or using two different heights for visual appeal.

pairs well with:

Hand-written escort cards, matching table number cards, lollipop party favors, and good French wine.
