Tropical

These arrangements were made for a small dinner party. The family grew tropicals in their garden and wanted to bring a little bit of home to their party. I used birds of paradise, ginger, cymbidium orchids, and assorted tropical leaves. 

Arranging tropical centerpieces is more sculptural than other floral design. Tropicals have strong shapes and building them is like putting a puzzle together. In this case, I didn't use any floral foam. Instead, I tied groupings of flowers with floral wire and arranged them that way.
