Make a High-Impact All-Around Arrangement
Many bold, dynamic flower varieties that provide interest, texture, color and depth are now available all year round. Vibrant lilies, roses and orchids are made all the more exciting when they are arranged in a shocking pink vase.
The smooth symmetrical curves of the large urn are an extreme contrast to the flared arrangement of diversely shaped buds, fully opened blooms and feathered foliage.
The idea of this large, full design is to create maximum impact: these intensely colored flowers have many different shapes and textures that together create an impressive visual display.
The strong pink glassware is complemented by bright reds and deep pinks. All are accentuated by the contrasting dark green color of the French ruscus.
