"an intimate dinner for two"

Table display by Christopher Grigas

New York in Bloom Flower Show

Held at The New York State Museum

Albany, New York

A flower show is an incredible opportunity for a florist to show their skill to potential clients…a virtually-free, life-sized advertisement which only costs us flowers…& time.  These opportunities only arise a few times a year.  I take full advantage of the extended hand.

I created this inspired design as “an intimate dinner for two” using Super-Green Roses, Green Prado Carnations, Green Fuji Mums, Kermit & Yoko Ono Mums, Green Fashion Roses, Curly Willow, Poplar Branch, and Steel Grass.  Keeping the design monochromatic (only one color) has a higher visual impact value, cohesive quality and is more memorable to viewers.  I used the twig/stem/grass elements to create a bridge between the two orb designs, yet extended them further out to add graceful natural curves to the highly dramatic and kinetic display.  The simplicity of the low black bowl mounded with blushing Roses gives a hint of romance to an otherwise modern design.
