{fashioned florals} orchid brights...


This Jenny Bowers illustration—in fact, a textile design for Roxy—jumped out with its saturated pinks, reds, and purples. There was something undeniably bubbly about it, and I decided it would be a great starting point to use the usual holiday colors, but put a vibrant twist into it! Picking up some seasonal red amaryllis, fuchsia peonies, ranunculus, lavender scabiosa, purple veronica, some sweet peas and some orchids from the flower market, I kept an eye towards keeping like colors together and using gradients to guide the arrangement. A simple silver julep cup adds a touch of sparkle to this little gem! — Liz
