Tropical Wedding Shower

August 23, 2008

The second arrangement

Tropical Centerpiece

For this series of arrangements, a particularly artistic client wanted colourful and summery (but not too crazy) table arrangements. We opted to go with oranges and purples to give the shower a tropical and exotic feeling.  There were going to be eight tables at the shower and we needed to keep the arrangements short enough so that guests could see each other over them.  We used roses, tritoma, pin cushion, protea, birds of paradise, orchids, assorted eucalyptus, and other tropical plants such that each arrangement looked different.  For the pictures below I picked out two of my favorite arrangements out of the eight.

As you can see, we used a 5x5x5 clear glass cube vase
