local grown in Boise and foraged arrangement for a memorial by Gorgeous and Green

Flowers I collected in Boise

A few months ago I ventured to Boise, Idaho for a memorial service for a special member of my husband's family.  I offered to help provide floral decor for the service and reception.  Since my husband, my mother in law and myself are  local and organic enthusiasts....  and in keeping with my business ethic from Gorgeous and Green, I collected flowers from a few local friends' gardens in Boise.

My mother in law has a friend who has a beautiful garden in her back yard featuring low-water plants and edibles.

She also has a giant dog, who is also fond of the beautiful garden.

Giant dog and gardener is Boise who let me forage for flowers

From her garden I collected onion flowers, grasses, yarrow, beards, chamomile and sweet peas.   We were also allowed to collect and take home tons of fresh raspberries from her vines.  Lovely.

wild raspberry I foraged in Boise for an event

It was super hot there, so the local roses in her neighbor's yard were few, but I managed to sneek a few in along with some day lilies.  Here are the finished arrangements:  (no floral foam in any of these of course)

Memorial services are bittersweet, and although there is a lot of sadness, it was a beautiful time to get together with family and friends and offer support.

tropical cabbage arrangement for a local farm to table restaurant in berkeley by gorgeous and green

Gorgeous and Green's Tropical Cabbage

I wouldn't usually put cabbage and tropical in the same sentence. Here's a pic of a lush tropical arrangement Gorgeous and Green created for a local restaurant, featuring organic and local cabbage, local roses and local birds of paradise.  Very bright and  festive.

Calla and artichoke restaurant arrangement by Gorgeous and Green

G&G decor at Origen in April

I would like to continue sharing what Gorgeous and Green does at Origen restaurant in Berkeley, so here are a few more pics from my phone.  This week I tried to incorporate the local white calla lilies, that we've been getting from a local organic grower in Oakland, lovely local blooming camelia branches and some ornamental artichokes, since it is a restaurant! Here are two arrangements, one for the bar and a larger more branchy one for the main dining room:
