Brown and Green Bouquet

brown green bouquet

This is a mostly green bouquet of green hydrangeas, green cymbidiums, with a splash of brown provided by sunflowers without petals. I like the bold graphic effect provided by the brown centers of the sunflowers--without petals, the shape is more prominant and modern. If you are a fan of sunflowers, you can extend its vase life by first displaying a sunflower bouquet as is, and as the petals start to wilt, peel them back to enjoy the petal-less look. Our clients are often surprised as they find out that the "green sunflower" is just an ordinary sunflower without its petals.

I really love those "green" sunflowers! I loved them in the display pieces you created at Hotel Vitale and love them in this bouquet.
