Pomp and Circumstance

It's early June which means it's graduation time - and I have felt so bad for all those who have had to sit in the sweltering heat the past few days to cheer their graduate. Hot or not, it's a memorable milestone for many families and such a wonderful way to begin the summer vacation - not to mention the next chapter of someone's life!

Last week I had a graduation party for 150 in honor of a young man graduating from Malvern Prep. His parents wanted the theme to be the school's colors - navy blue and silver - and the key was to strike a balance with the flowers to ensure that they looked celebratory and fun but not wedding-esque.

His mother also wanted me to create a floral mosaic of the school's logo to anchor the room and the dance floor and so we created a large MP (arranged just like the logo) and gathered silver balloons at the base. The logo was a hit and every guest posed in front of them for photos! What's great as well is that the fresh flowers dry beautifully on these forms and clients save them as keepsakes.

To all those who have attended, will attend, or will be a member of a graduation - enjoy this special time! Congratulations!

Flowers pictured include trick dianthus, hydrangea, delphinium, ladies mantle, carnations, moss, salal, and pittosporum.
