Revival's flowers July 20th 2011

This week at Revival bar and kitchen, the flower arrangements Gorgeous and Green created included some bright protea and local berries.  Here are a few pictures of the week's arrangements.

 

The host table has one yellow pincusion in a vintage candlewick drinking glass.

 

The Large French bucket in the back is stacked with bushy branches and some bright organic and local sunflowers.

 

The vintage vase (my favorite vase) has some pink protea and lovely local amaranth, organic bells of ireland and local branches and berries.

Flowers at Revival Bar and Kitchen June 29th 2011

Another week of Gorgeous and Green arrangements for a local restaurant.  This last week at Revival, I brought in some lovely japanese maple branches and some wispy asparagus branches.  The asparagus added a lovely texture and soft lines.

I added a few hydgrangea inside the branches, so they could peak out as people see it from different angles.

Here you can see wisps of asparagus leaves  and kale trailing from a simple bouquet of roses and gerbera that were left over from a past event.

We are getting some great local birds of paradise (summertime is a good time to get my hands on more "tropical" flowers that are locally grown) so I added in a couple to this vintage vase arrangement of local organic bells of ireland and celosia that will open in the next few days. Here's a little arrangement I made for the front host table, some lovely maple leaves, local and organic scabiosa pods and organic scabiosa flowers and local crespedia.  I love their shapes.

First week of June at Revival

Here's Gorgeous and Green's arrangements for Revival in Berkeley this week.  I got a hold of some great branches and hot pink leptospermum.  I love hot fuchsia pink with orange and yellow....

Here's a crawling arrangement I did with thimble berry bush.  It seems to be crawling around the corner of the wall.

This arrangement features the spindly branches and fuchsia lepto with thimble berry and orange juice roses from a local grower in Petaluma.  I love the vase because of it's shape and character.  It's a wide v shaped vintage vase with touches of gold.  It's probably from the 40's although has a hint of 20's charm.

Here's the hot pink lepto with the big branches.  It's hard to tell but this thing was probably 7 feet tall with those branches.  The lepto itself was 5 feet tall.  It was a local bush, probably getting out of hand before it was trimmed down.  The pictures don't do these arrangements justice, because you lose the dimensionality of it.  Those branches are kind of creeping and winding around the branches.

small entrance arrangement, kind of wild with curling equisetum and kangaroo paw

and the ominous but fun big metal, here filled with scallop kale and flowering kale and some thimble berry and kangaroo paw
